Call for Papers

We invite submissions of research papers on the topic of computing education. Themes of interest include:

  • Computing education pedagogy
  • Assessing and providing feedback on computing assignments
  • Issues of inclusivity and diversity
  • Tools to aid computing education
  • Computing education issues particularly relevant to a British and/or Irish context

All submissions related to computing education are welcome, at any stage of formal education (or outside formal education).

Papers should describe a rigorously executed piece of work, include a motivating research question and discussion of prior related work. We welcome:

  • Papers describing a research experiment in a school, university or informal educational setting. The experiment should be rigorously conducted – if this is the case, null results will still be considered for publication.
  • Tool design papers which carefully document design constraints, user considerations, relevant pedagogical concerns, and justify the design decisions taken in a way that would be useful to other designers, and include details of user testing or other initial measures of effectiveness.

Submitted papers should have a research component. Papers focused on practice-related topics such as implementation of new curricula or new course designs may be better suited to our sister Computing Education Practice conference.

Paper Format and Submission

Papers should be submitted in ACM double-column conference proceedings format. The page limit is six pages, not counting the references. The references may occupy a seventh page if the paper reaches the six page limit. Papers must be submitted in an anonymised form for double-blind review. Accepted papers will be included in the proceedings, and presented in a session at the conference.
