WiPSCE 2020 goes virtual - May 11, 2020

To provide all potential contributors of WIPSCE 2020 planning security, we have decided to continue the planning process of this year’s WiPSCE as a virtual event. Although we have noticed that the Corona restrictions are gradually being taken back, no one can currently really predict, which guidelines - especially concerning international travelling - we will face this fall (or if there will be further waves of the pandemic). As health and safety of our participants are still our top priority and as we want to make sure that especially international members of our community can contribute and participate as in the last years, we think that a virtual WiPSCE 2020 is the best solution for everyone in the current situation.

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 is the premier international venue for school-level computing education. It aims to improve the exchange of research and practice relevant to teaching and learning in primary and secondary computing education, teacher training, and related research.

WiPSCE draws participants from all parts of the world and is run in cooperation with ACM SIGCSE. Its roots are from a long-running workshop of the German computing education community, but it is now hosted in countries across Europe, as well as in Germany. Accepted papers will be published in the WiPSCE 2020 proceedings as part of the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series. The proceedings will be included in the ACM Digital Library.

All deadlines are midnight "anywhere on earth".

(*) 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.
