The conference includes a series of keynote speeches, scientific paper presentations, tutorials, panels, and exhibitions on the latest trends in educational technology, among others, providing a unique opportunity to connect with colleagues from around the world and learn from the most prominent experts in the field, particularly in the region.

Universidad Carlos III de Madrid

Carlos Alario, Ph.D.

The University in an AI-driven World

Abstract: In recent months there has been a frenetic activity in the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based tools. Especially due to recent developments in generative AI and the popularization of this term and specific tools in the media and social networks. These tools affect multiple sectors and higher education is definitely one of them.

Content generation, student support, assessment and certification of knowledge, competencies, and also research in education are strongly impacted by these new tools. Universities must modify their structures and processes to cope with these new changes, without forgetting the adequate training of teaching staff and taking into account the ethical aspects related to the use of AI-based tools. This talk collects some of the most recent advances in this field, which is evolving at a great speed.

New York University

Xavier Ochoa, Ph.D.

The University in an AI-driven World

Abstract: The use of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence algorithms is not new in education or in Learning Analytics. However, recent advances in generative models, such as massive language models (LLMs), have radically transformed the potential applications of these technologies. In this talk, we will explore the various ways in which generative models, whether in text, images or audio, can be used to create Learning Analytics tools that foster deliberate practice, reflection, self-regulation and creativity in both students and teachers. Likewise, we will also visit possible dystopias resulting from an inadequate application of these models in the educational field.

In this talk we will also evaluate technical (What is possible?), pedagogical (What is beneficial for learning?), and ethical (What is beneficial for the individual and society?) issues. While this talk will not provide definitive answers to these last two questions, it will offer guidelines that each individual can use to address them in his or her own research and teaching practice.

Data and process analytics: How process mining helps businesses

Abstract: Data and process analytics are the new charisma for organizations. Generating insights from process-related information has become a key element in improving processes and making businesses worldwide more efficient and sustainable.

This talk aims to familiarize participants with an innovative discipline called process mining, and how various artificial intelligence techniques and tools can optimize activities associated with any business process. We will explore different research experiences where process mining has been applied in domains such as incident management and emergency medical processes. Additionally, this talk will share novel aspects of today's and tomorrow's process-oriented data science.

Workshop: Developing a Business Case with Process Mining Tools.

This hands-on workshop will allow participants to learn about the discipline of process mining and how you can improve your processes and projects through cutting-edge technological tools. They will be granted access to a technological platform and data to practice and perform real-time process analytics.
