CALL FOR EXTENDED ABSTRACTS
PPIG Work-in-Progress Meeting 18-19 April 2011
Invitation to submit extended abstracts - deadline 18th March
The Psychology of Programming Group (PPIG) invites abstracts for its
7th Work-in-Progress meeting, to be held at the Communication and
Computing Research Centre in Sheffield Hallam University (UK).
The PPIG work-in-progress workshop is a forum in which researchers
at all levels can present and discuss current work and recent
results, findings and developments. The intention is to help
researchers by encouraging constructive suggestions for taking their
Despite its title, PPIG is interested not only in psychology of
programming and software engineering, but also in psychological
aspects of related activities. Indeed, a feature of the PPIG
workshops has always been their openness to a wide spectrum of
concerns: principally related to programming and software
engineering, from the design of programming languages to
communication issues in software teams, and from computing education
to high-performance professional practice, but also related to other
domains with similar concerns. Recent events have touched on
learning mathematical formalisms, creativity and digital design,
understanding websites, and live coding in the laptop music world.
Similarly, PPIG entertains a broad spectrum of research approaches,
from theoretical perspectives drawing on psychological and social
theory to empirical perspectives grounded in real-world experience.
We have open minds if you think we might be interested, try us.
Experienced researchers and practitioners, as well as doctoral
students, are equally invited to submit an abstract. Although the
abstract need not describe completed work, the work described should
be aiming to produce scientific output of publishable quality.
Conference is located at Sheffield Hallam city campus in walking
distance of the railway station and in centre of the city. We look
forward to finding out about your ongoing work and seeing you at the
Extended abstracts are expected to be no more than two pages,
following an academic format.
