Please feel free to forward this information to colleagues and relevant mailing lists.


October 28 - 31, 2010

Original submissions in all areas related to the conference theme are invited. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

   * Computing education research: methodologies and results
   * Educational technology, software, and tools
   * Use of technology to support education in computing and related
   * Tools for visualization or concretization
   * Teaching innovations, best practices, experience, assessment
     development and case studies in Computing Education
   * Distance education, virtual and open universities in computing


*Submission deadline: June 20th, 2010
Notification of acceptance: August 30th, 2010
Early registration deadline (authors): October 4, 2010
Registration deadline: October 15, 2010

Conference: October 28th - October 31st, 2010



   * Research Paper, 8-10 pages. Unpublished, original, theoretically
     anchored research related to the conference theme. Papers will be
     of high quality and present novel arguments, syntheses, results,
     methods or tools. Research papers are mainly evaluated by the
     relevance and quality of the research.

   * Discussion papers, 6 pages. Unpublished, original work in
     progress, or dissemination and discussion of new ideas in
     Computing Education Research. Discussion papers should clearly
     indicate the issue that the author aims to discuss, as well as
     discussion questions and a mechanism to promote a debate among the
     conference participants. A discussion paper is evaluated by its
     anticipated impact on discussions during the conference. At least
     half the presentation time allocated to a discussion paper should
     be used for a public discussion.
   * System paper, 4-6 pages. Unpublished, original work describing
     methods or tools for learning or instruction in computing
     education, motivated by the didactic needs of teaching computing
     and supported supported by clear argumentation or a theoretical
     framework for why the proposed system can be expected to address
     the identified problem. The submissions are evaluated on their
     impact on and contribution to the research questions defined and
     on their contributions to existing knowledge and practice. A
submission should preferably be accompanied by a Demo.
   * Poster/demo, 2 page abstract. Interactive presentation of emerging
     ideas for research, teaching practice, or tools can be presented
     as posters or demonstrations. Submissions are evaluated based on
     their originality and the possible future contribution to the
     field of Computing Education. In addition to the abstract and live
     tool demo on site, we prefer the author(s) to prepare a max. 3
     minutes screencast (a short video) to be presented for the
     audience before the demo session as well as to be included in the
     conference website.
