LaTiCE 2017 in Hong Kong
LaTiCE was announced to be in Saudi Arabia (see previous blog post), but it didn’t work out. I don’t know why. It will now be held in Hong Kong.
FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS
Learning and Teaching in Computing and Engineering (LaTiCE 2017)
April 20-23, 2017
The Fifth International Conference on Learning and Teaching in Computing and Engineering (LaTiCE 2017) aims to create a platform towards sharing rigorous research and current practices being conducted in computing and engineering education. The previous four LaTiCE conferences have been successfully held in Macau (2013), Malaysia (2014), Taiwan (2015) and Mumbai (2016). The fifth LaTiCE conference will be held at the University of Hong Kong, from April 20th to 23rd, 2017.
LaTiCE 2017 is jointly organized by the University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, and the Uppsala Computing Education Research Group (UpCERG), Uppsala University, Sweden. It is technically co-sponsored by the Special Technical Community for Education Research (STC Education), which is an IEEE Computer Society initiative to connect those interested in all forms of educational research and pedagogy in the field of computing and engineering.
The conference is preceded by a doctoral consortium on April 20th. The conference is a gathering for presentations of research papers, practice sharing papers, work-in-process papers, and display of posters and demos.
MAIN CONFERENCE THEMES
– Computer Science and Engineering Education research
– Secondary School Computer Science
– ICT in Education
– Computing and engineering education research, theories, and methodologies
– Cross-cultural aspects of computing and engineering education
– Educational technology, software, and tools
– Teaching innovations, best practices, experience sharing in computing and engineering education
– Course module design, proficiency assessment, and module cross-accreditation
– Improving student engagement in computing and engineering
– Collaborative learning in computing and engineering- team and project skills
– “Flipped” classrooms and active learning
– Work-integrated learning and project-based learning
Research papers (6-8 pages) present original, unpublished work relevant to the conference themes. Papers may be theoretical or based on empirical investigations. Papers are evaluated with respect to their theoretical contribution and the quality and relevance of the research.
Practice / Work-in-progress Papers
Practice / work-in-progress papers (3-5 pages) present original, unpublished practice sharing or work-in-progress work with a focus on innovative and valued practices within specific institutions. They can present preliminary results or raise issues of significance to the discipline.
Poster/demo (2 pages abstract) should present innovative ideas for work in the early stages related to research, teaching practice, or tools. Demonstration of tools should stress the methodology and can include some hands-on work for participants.
Papers should be submitted to the EasyChair review management system. All papers will undergo double-blind peer review.
Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. All papers should follow the IEEE Xplore Conference Publishing formatting guidelines.
