The increa s ing use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for delivering education has been posing new challenges to educators and creating opportunities for research. The adoption of ICT for education is generating data at an exponential rate. This data needs to be analyzed to get insights about learner`s behavior and to improve learning outcomes. The multidisciplinary field of Cognitive learning analytics concerns about developing theories, frameworks and technologies for the efficient analysis of educational data. The purpose of this special session on HCI Data- learning analytics is to bring together the researchers working towards addressing the challenges faced by educators due to the increasing deployment of ICT in educational institute. In this session, we seek the HCI - learning analytics of submission to enhance dialogue among researchers.

Recently, the direction of AI development is centered on human beings. Beyond mechanical AI, we are trying to develop AI that is human-friendly and thinks and determines like humans. Among a number of AI applications, many fields of determining human thoughts and intentions and providing services directly to humans are being studied. Sensors such as cameras are used to sense humans and the environment, and technology that processes and analyzes signals or images acquired from sensors through AI technology is very important. In order to share the results of these studies, a special session "Human-centered AI applications" was planned.
