General Information

Research in primary and secondary computing education is a young field with strong ties to national educational systems. Nevertheless, its theories, methods, and results are internationally applicable and of interest to researchers and practitioners in the field.

WiPSCE aims at improving the exchange of research and practice relevant to teaching and learning in primary and secondary computing education, teacher training, and related research.

WiPSCE has its roots in a long-running workshop of the German computing education community and is run in cooperation with ACM SIGCSE. Accepted papers will be published in the WiPSCE 2016 proceedings as part of the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series. The proceedings will be included in the ACM Digital Library.

Working groups

We will organize working group sessions in which participants work on a specific theme. The outcomes of the working groups will be peer-reviewed and may be published as part of the conference proceedings. The themes are:

The working group sessions will not overlap with paper and poster presentation sessions. The number of participants per working group is limited. Registration for the working groups will open 1 September.

Important dates

All deadlines are midnight "anywhere on earth". There will be no extensions.

(*) We offer a re-submission slack. This means that title and abstract of papers must be submitted by the first deadline, but it will be possible to upload the full versions of papers until the second deadline. Paper abstracts that are not submitted by the first deadline will not be considered - we need the information to assign the submissions to the reviewers.
