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

WiPCSE 2017 offers a new working group (WG) format. During the WG sessions the participants will work on a specific topic:

Our intention is to publish the outcomes of the working groups in an adequate journal. In the best case, the working groups could start an enduring collaboration on these topics. To assure efficient work, the number of participants is restricted to 10 persons per WG. If you are interested or willing to work in one of these WGs, please contact the WiPCSE chairs via Email As long as the groups are not booked out, it will be able to join them until the first WG session starts at Nov 8.

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.
