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.

The WiPSCE conference 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. The WiPSCE conference is a descendant of a long-running workshop of the German computing education community (hence its acronym: Workshop in Primary and Secondary Computing Education - WiPSCE). It is now held as an international annual conference alternating between different, mostly European, countries and Germany.

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 2024 proceedings as part of the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series, which will be included in the ACM Digital Library.

(*) 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.
