ICER 2021 Call for Papers out with Changes for ICER Authors

February 1, 2021 at 7:00 am Leave a comment

The International Computing Education Research (ICER) Conference Call for papers is now out — see the conference website here. Abstracts are due 19 March, and full papers are due 26 March.

There are big changes in the author experience of ICER 2021 — see a blog post describing them here. Here are two of them:

  • ICER is going to use the new ACM TAPS publication process, and the paper size limits are now based on word count instead of number of pages. I hope that this relieves authors from some of the tedium of the last minute adjusting of figure sizes and tweaking of text/fonts to just barely get everything squeezed in to the given page limits.
  • There will now be conditional accepts. It’s heart breaking when there’s a paper that’s so good, but it’s got one small and easily-fixable fatal flaw (something that the reviewers and program chairs feel is not publishable as-is). In a conference setting, when the only options are accept or reject, there’s not much to do but reject. Now, there will be an option to conditionally accept a paper with a small review process after revision, to make sure that the small flaw is fixed.

Please do submit to ICER — let’s get lots of great CS Ed research out into the community discussion!
