Call for Papers for ICER 2014

January 30, 2014 at 1:40 pm 2 comments

Quintin Cutts, Beth Simon and Brian Dorn, chairs for this year’s ACM International Computing Education Research Conference, ICER 2014, invite you to submit a research paper or lightning talk.  The Conference, the 10th in the series, will be held in Glasgow, Scotland on August 11-13th.Submission Deadlines:
— April 14, 2014 — Research paper submissions (8 pages) with a one week re-submission allowance.
— June 16, 2014 — Lightning talk abstract submissions.Just prior to the Conference, there will be a Doctoral Consortium (DC), with support to attend available from SIGCSE; and just afterwards, there’ll be a Critical Research Review (CRR).  Both activities will enable researchers to gain high-quality critical feedback on their research plans, providing an excellent springboard for a successful and productive research year in 2014/15.

Why submit to/attend ICER 2014?

– Authors have in the past explicitly noted how the quality of ICER reviews significantly improved their work.
– Our single-track, discussion-oriented, paper sessions result in significant additional feedback being provided on every paper.
– The format enables you to meet new researchers and initiate valuable new research activities.
– If you are new to empirical computer science education research, you will be immersed in a practising community for three days.
– Either before or after the conference, you have an opportunity to significantly enhance your research agenda, via the DC or the CRR.
– You can include a holiday in Scotland, including the Edinburgh Festival, the Commonwealth Games (in Glasgow!),
and more historic and pre-historic castles, lochs, glens, islands and mountains than you’ve ever dreamed of…

We’re looking forward to receiving your papers,

best regards,

Quintin, Beth and Brian.

    Now to see if I can work on the feedback from last year to get something useful for this year! I shall not be sight-seeing sadly but I saw Scotland before and it’s probably the same. 🙂

    We’re a friendly bunch in Scotland and it’s great that we’ll have such a well regarded international cs ed research conference on our doorstop.

    Quite a few of my favourite papers were published in ICER including one last year on conceptual progressions in primary scratch programs.
