ITiCSE 2014, the 19th Annual Conference on Innovation and Technology in Computer Science Education, will take place in Uppsala, Sweden, hosted by Uppsala University. The ACM Special Interest Group on Computer Science Education (SIGCSE) is sponsoring the event.
The conference program includes keynote lectures, paper sessions, panels, working groups, tips and techniques, courseware demonstrations, posters, and exhibits. The conference also features opportunities to partake in excursions enabling attendees to see some of the surrounding district and mingle in a less intense and formal environment.
See the abstracts of keynotes and other information.
See the tentative programme for the conference.
See the abstracts of working groups and instructions on how to join them.
Applications to join working groups close March 31st.
Registration is now open. See registration information.
The conference will be held in Ångström Laboratory (Ångströmlaboratoriet) at Polacksbacken, which is located 2-3 km outside the town center. It is a nice walk (if the weather is as it should at an ITiCSE conference) and there are several and frequent buses stopping by at Polacksbacken.
There are no pre-booked rooms and we suggest that you use your favorite accommodation booking site, e.g. booking.com or hotels.com, to finds and book lodging. Uppsala is a geographically small city in size and most lodgings are close to each other.
A pre-bookable excursion has been arranged for the Tuesday afternoon of the conference.
We welcome submissions that deal with the use of technology in computer science teaching and learning, innovations in the practice of teaching computer science, and computer science education research. We especially invite submissions related to the special theme of the conference: Learning for Life.
The official language of the conference is English, and all submissions must be original work. The entire proceedings will be available in the ACM Digital Library.
Papers should be high quality, unpublished original work, related to one of the themes of the conference. Submissions must be no longer than six pages. Accepted papers must be presented by at least one author and will be published in the conference proceedings.
Panels allow experts to discuss and explore a current hot topic in computer science education. Panel organizers are responsible for selecting appropriate panelists to participate, obtaining position statements from the panelists, and integrating the statements into an abstract before submitting a proposal. Panel proposals are limited to two pages. Accepted abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings.
Working Groups are formed by participants with a common interest related to one of the conference topics. Working groups convene and begin activities during the weekend prior to the conference (June 21 - 22), and continue their work throughout the conference. Participants present their results to conference attendees at a special working group presentation session, about 20 pages) after the conference concludes. Final reports are refereed and, if accepted, are published at least in the ACM Digital Library as an addendum to the conference proceedings. The best working group reports are also published in ACM Inroads.
Tips, Techniques, and Courseware sessions provide an opportunity to share practical ideas, methods of assessment, class activities or software / courseware that support learning in computer science. Participants will give a short presentation in which they will describe the tool, its goals, application and results. A brief demonstration may also be included. A onepage summary of accepted proposals is published in the conference proceedings.
Faculty or student posters present work currently in progress. A one-page summary of the accepted posters will be published in the conference proceedings.
Exhibits will be made available to publishers, software houses, and other interested vendors. Interested parties are invited to contact the conference organizers for information about presenting an exhibit at the conference.
More information will appear. See also the generic ITiCSE info page.
