Hi José,

I was wondering if I should send my abstract to the Psychology of Programming 
Interest Group Work in Progress Workshop in January (see below). My 
topic/research is kinda related, and I might get some feedback. It is in London 
and brief, so costs would be minimal (which I would have to bear in any case). 
Any thoughts?

Psychology of Programming Interest Group – Work-in-Progress Workshop (January 
8-9, 2015)
School of Science and Technology, Middlesex University (London, UK)

The ninth PPIG Work-in-Progress Workshop (PPIG-WIP) will be held in the School 
of Science and Technology at Middleses University on January 8-9, 2015. 
PPIG-WIP is a forum in which researchers at all levels can present and discuss 
future work, current work, recent results, findings and developments. 
Experienced researchers and practitioners, as well as doctoral students, are 
equally invited to participate.

PPIG, the Psychology of Programming Interest Group 
(http://www.ppig.org<http://www.ppig.org/>), has existed since 1987. Its 
meetings are unusual in that they are inclusive rather than selective, 
encouraging rather than judgemental, conversations rather than displays, they 
promote ideas rather than authority, they would rather celebrate contributions 
than force them to compete. For all that, our purpose is to improve cognitive 
theory by stretching it on the rack of programming and, vice-versa, to improve 
programming by looking at it through the lens of cognitive theory.

Past workshops have involved discussion on issues ranging from the design of 
programming languages to communication problems in software teams, and from 
computing education to high-performance professional practice. There can be no 
exhaustive list and we have recently discussed learning mathematical 
formalisms, creativity and digital design, understanding websites, and live 
coding in the laptop music world. We cover everything from theoretical 
perspectives drawing on psychological and social theory to empirical 
perspectives grounded in real-world experience.

The 2014/15 Work-in-Progress Workshop will be held in the School of Science and 
Technology at Middleses University in London. The London-centred design of the 
UK’s transport system means that Middlesex is accessible from anywhere in the 
country; the London-centred design of its political system means, 
unfortunately, that getting there won’t be cheap.

Abstracts of submissions should be submitted to 
ppigwip1_2...@mdx.ac.uk<mailto:ppigwip1_2...@mdx.ac.uk> by 5th December 2014. 
In the spirit of PPIG, they will be very lightly reviewed.
