CSERC 2012 : The 2nd Computer Science Education Research Conference
Call For Papers
Computer Science Education Research Conference (CSERC'2012) aims at creating a platform for researchers in the field of computer science education. Over the years it has become clear that there is a need for more fundamental knowledge about and input into computer science education. To contribute to this, last year CSERC'2011 has been organized in Heerlen, Netherlands, annex to a Dutch Conference for Computer Science Teachers, NIOC'11. Like CSERC’2011, CSERC'2012 is intended to be in cooperation with ACM's Special Interest Group on Computer Science Education (SIGCSE, pending approval). This year CSERC will be hosted by FedCSIS 2012.
Themes of CSERC are:
designing a Computer Science curriculum
didactics and teaching methods for Computer Science subjects
development of professional competencies in Computer Science
tools and instruments supporting Computer Science Education
field studies in Computer Science Education
cultural and regional differences in Computer Science Education
convergence and divergence in Computer Science bachelor and master Education
vocational and professional Computer Science Education
Paper Submission and Publication
Authors should submit draft papers (as LateX, PDF or MSWord file). Style templates are available at http://www.acm.org/publications/submissions .
The total length of a draft paper should not exceed 8 pages.
Submitted draft papers will be refereed on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the conference.
Accepted draft papers will be published as "Preprints of the Computer Science Education Research Conference." They will be made available to the FedCSIS participants, but will not be included in the IEEE DL.
Authors of accepted papers will be invited to produce an extended paper (between 8 and 12 pages), which takes into account the discussions that were held during the conference. These extended papers will be published in the ACM Digital library (http://dl.acm.org/).
Organizers reserve right to move accepted papers between FedCSIS events.
