Just a quick reminder that the deadline for lighting talk submissions for ICER 2011 is a little over a week away---June 15.

Feel free to drop me a note if you have any questions about potential submissions.


Cheers,
Brian

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: ICER LIGHTNING TALKS

Lightning Talk Application Deadline: June 15, 2011

ICER 2011 - International Computing Education Research Workshop
Providence, Rhode Island, USA
August 8-9th, 2011
http://www.icer-conference.org
--------------------------------------------------------------------

We are pleased to announce an addition to the International Computing
Education Research Workshop (ICER) this year.  We will have a new
session devoted to "Lightning Talks".

What is exactly is a Lightning Talk?  Lightning Talks are short, 2 to 3
minute presentations intended to further expand the ICER community and
spark discussion among conference participants.  The intent is for
these talks to provide a venue in support of new ideas and newcomers to
our community.

Potential benefits of giving a Lightning Talk include:
   - getting feedback on a new idea for an empirical CS ed project,
   - getting a critique of a research design or data-gathering strategy,
   - showcasing a tool or technique that hasn't been fully tested,
   - finding collaborators at other institutions, and
   - inspiring good conversations at the banquet (which will immediately
      follow the Lightning Talks session)

Interested presenters should submit a title and one paragraph
description of their topic to Brian Dorn at bd...@hartford.edu no
later than June 15 for consideration.

ICER 2011 Lightning Talks Chair
Brian Dorn, University of Hartford
