8 Oct 2021 - LAK22 Moves Fully Online

Dear Learning Analytics Community,

We had sincerely hoped to be able to host a face to face event in 2022 but given the ongoing realities of the global pandemic due to the Delta COVID-19 variant there continues to be substantial uncertainty of international travel restrictions and vaccination rates/status for many countries. While for some countries restrictions have been able to be relaxed, for others restrictions are being reintroduced therefore as a diverse and global community we need to take into account the situations of all members when planning an international event that involves many months of preparation. Thank you to all the participants who responded to the survey and have raised their issues and concerns with us. Thus the Society for Learning Analytics Research and LAK22 organizers have made the difficult decision to host LAK22 fully online. We would like to acknowledge and thank the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel and Spa for working with us during these challenging times and we hope to host a face to face LAK there sometime in the future.

The decision is made at this point in time to enable us to plan for a fully online mode that builds upon the successes of LAK20 and LAK21 by creating an even more engaging and interactive conference program.

Given this change and based on responses from our community survey, we have decided to alter the conference dates to try to avoid the weekend as best as possible. The LAK22 pre-conference dates will now be Monday and Tuesday, March 21-22 and the main conference will be Wednesday - Friday, March 23-25, 2022.

What does this mean for me?

Authors/Presenters: As previously announced, virtual presentations were already being planned for LAK22. Now, all presentations will be held online. Finalized details will be shared as we continue to build out the program.

Attendees: All portions of the LAK22 conference such as full/short/practitioner presentations, workshops, posters/demos and doctoral consortiums will still take place. Full information on the final length and presentation format will be shared soon as we finalize the details. Final scheduling details will be shared as we finalize the program.

Please visit our FAQ page as we continue to answer your questions.

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you online in March 2022!
