You are warmly invited to the fourteenth annual ACM International Computing Education Research (ICER) conference, which will be held in Espoo, Finland, 13-15 August 2018. ICER provides a forum for presenting and publishing high-quality research in computing education. At ICER 2018 we will continue the traditional ICER single-track format, which is designed to encourage authors and audience to engage in lively discussion about each work presented.
We offer a range of submission categories that allow for different types of participation, supporting work at different levels ranging from formative work to a completed research study. Research papers provide the main focus of the conference. Research papers have an 8-page limit plus up to 2 additional pages for references.
The SIGCSE Doctoral Consortium will be held the day before the conference. Students accepted for the consortium will participate in an all-day workshop conducted by prominent leaders in the computing education research community. Participants will also present their work at the conference in a dedicated poster session.
In addition, ICER offers a track for lightning talks, 3-minute presentations that articulate an idea for a research study, provide an update on current research, or invite collaborators. Moreover, there is also a Works in Progress workshop held the afternoon and morning after the Conference, providing participants with an opportunity to gain critical and in-depth feedback on their research ideas or projects.
