Call for Papers: Koli Calling International Conference on Computing Education Research
I’ve never been to Koli Calling, but am finding myself doing more work these days that fits the kind of work that’s presented at Koli. I’m going to serve as a reviewer for them this year, and we’re planning to submit a couple of papers there. Finland in November!
Call for papers
16th Koli Calling International Conference on Computing Education Research
Koli, Finland, 24-27 November 2016
Koli Calling (http://www.kolicalling.fi/) is one of the leading international conferences dedicated to the scholarship of teaching and learning and to education research in the computing disciplines. Koli Calling aims to publish high quality papers that combine teaching and learning experiences with solid, theoretically anchored research.
The conference is held annually at the Hotel Koli, about 60km north of Joensuu, Finland. The 2016 conference is organised by the University of Eastern Finland in collaboration with Monash University, Australia.
- Submission deadline (all categories): Monday 5 August at noon Finnish time (GMT +2h)
- Extended submission deadline (see below): Monday 12 August at noon Finnish time (GMT +2h)
- Notification of acceptance: Monday 9 September
- Submission of revised manuscripts: Monday 30 September at noon Finnish time (GMT +2h)
- Early Registration deadline: Monday 7 October
Conference: Thursday November 24 (evening) to Sunday November 27 (lunchtime)
Extended submission deadline: we offer a re-submission slack of exactly one week. If a paper is submitted by the 5 August deadline, it will be possible to submit updated versions of the paper until 12 August. Papers that are not first submitted by 5 August, or that are not reasonably complete at that time, will not be considered.
Koli Calling is a single-track conference with research, practice and systems presentations as well as keynote and invited talks. The conference language is English. The conference is known for its moderate size, intimate atmosphere, and lively discussions. To maintain this reputation, a limited number of submissions will be accepted. In 2015 about 48 participants attended the conference from 14 countries on 4 continents.
Original submissions are invited in all areas related to the conference theme and should have an explicit connection to computing education. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Computing education research: theoretical aspects, methodologies and results
- Development and use of technology to support education in computing and related sciences, e.g., tools for visualisation or concretisation
- Teaching and assessment approaches, innovations and best practices
- Distance, online, blended learning, and informal learning
- Learning analytics and educational data mining
- Computing education in all educational levels, e.g., K12 context and teacher training
