ICER 2013 Conference Call for Papers released
Call for papers due 22 April 2013: http://wp.acm.org/icer-conference/icer-2013/call-for-papers/
The International Computing Education Research (ICER) Workshop aims at gathering high-quality contributions to the computing education research discipline. Papers for the ICER workshop will be double blind peer-reviewed.
ICER accepts papers in two different categories.
Research papers. 8 pages
A clear theoretical basis, building on existing literature in computing education, computer science, and other related disciplines.
A strong empirical basis, drawing on relevant research methods. Papers that re-interpret and explain others’ empirical results are welcome.
An explication of the paper’s impact on, and contribution to, existing knowledge about computing education.
Discussion papers. 6 pages
Work in progress, or dissemination and discussion of new ideas in Computing Education Research.
Discussion papers fail to meet one or more of the criteria for research papers, but have the potential to become exemplary ICER papers if given the opportunity to be presented to and discussed by the community.
Discussion papers should include explicit discussion questions or ideas that the authors are interested in hearing discussed by the community. Time will be allotted at the conference to enable these discussions.
