Call for posters

The conference focuses on educational goals and objectives of Informatics or Computer Science as a subject matter in primary, secondary and vocational education and their different realization in compulsory and voluntary courses.

Main topics

  • Sustainable Education in Informatics or Computer Science for Pupils of all ages
  • Connecting Computer Science lessons to the students’ everyday lives
  • Teacher education in Informatics or Computer Science
  • Research on Informatics or Computer Science in schools (empirical / qualitative / quantitative / theory building / research methods / comparative studies / transferability of methods and results from other disciplines)

We cordially invite you to submit a poster proposal to ISSEP 2016. Poster may describe recently completed work, relevant results of work in progress, or successful systems and applications, etc. Moreover, presenting a poster at the conference is a great opportunity to get feedback on work that has not yet been published.

Poster presentations will be an integral part of the conference. To maintain interactiveness and exciting poster presentations, at least one presenter per accepted poster is required to attend the conference.

Submission guidelines

A 2-page poster proposal must include a short description of the research topic, the method, and, if possible, research results and implications based on the research results.

If the proposal is accepted, a vertical rectangular board will be provided at the conference for the presentation of your poster. Moreover, a 2-page abstract will also be included in ISSEP proceedings.

Poster proposals must be formatted using the LNCS style and submitted as pdf files. A template is available to download: ISSEP-PosterExample.zip. Please use this template in order to format your document and do not change the styles or margins. Note that poster proposals not using this format in full will not be accepted.

Please submit proposals in pdf format to issep2016@easychair.org

Schedule

  • Poster proposal due:August 27, 2016
  • Notification of acceptance: September 3, 2016
  • Camera-ready due: September 17, 2016

Call for workshops

The organisers of ISSEP 2016 cordially invite you to submit a workshop proposal. Workshops are distinguished meeting points for getting informed about the ongoing work in our relevant fields and covering current topics preferably in practical informatics at all school levels.

Due to a very tight conference schedule, we offer “short workshops (about 45 minutes)”, providing participants with opportunities for exhibitions and discussions about special topics. In particular, workshop proposals which are not covered by talks (see list of accepted papers on the ISSEP webpage) and also from an interdisciplinary standpoint (e.g. languages, mathematics, physics, sport...) are welcome.

We encourage the submission of workshop proposals on (but not restricted to):

  • Creativity engines to learn informatics principle and programming languages (Simulations, Fractals, …), development environments and programming interfaces
  • Maker movement (e.g. robotics)
  • CS unplugged activities and informatics contests/challenges
  • Web applications, web collaboration and production tools (e.g. MOOCS and e-books)
  • Good practice and worked out examples
  • Short and long term lesson plans, reference models and special curricular issues

In case of overlapping workshops themes are proposed, the committee may contact the organisers to discuss the possibility of merging workshops. Please note that the duration of a workshop might need to be adjusted based on the overall number of submissions received. Furthermore, workshops where less than five people registered might be cancelled.

Submission guidelines

Authors are invited to submit the workshop proposals to issep2016@easychair.org

The submission shall contain an abstract of the workshop, short biographies of the workshop leaders, a description of the materials provided, and a tentative agenda for the workshop. The submission should not exceed two pages. Abstracts of accepted workshops will be published in the ISSEP 2016 proceedings. A template is available to download: ISSEP_workshop_template.zip.

Schedule

  • Poster proposal due:August 27, 2016
