We invite the submission of original rigorous research on methodologies, studies, analyses, tools, or technologies for computing education.



Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • Computing curriculum development
  • Multidisciplinary computing curriculum development
  • Bridging academic CS programs and industry needs
  • Capacity planning for CS enrollment growth
  • Frontiers of computational thinking
  • Improvements to learning, community, and pedagogy in CS education
  • New tools and techniques for CS education
  • Field internship training
  • Teacher training and teacher confidence
  • Online experimental toolsets for computing education
  • Analysis of small data and big data for massive open online course
  • Quality control and CSAB/ABET accreditation

    Submission guidelines

    All aspects of the submission and notification process will be handled electronically. Research papers will be judged for quality and relevance through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. Author names and affiliations must not appear in the papers, and bibliographic references must be adjusted to preserve author anonymity. The paper is limited to a maximum of 6 pages and must adhere to ACM’s publication guidelines (MS Word template, and LaTeX template). Submissions should be uploaded at:

    Note that authors must submit ONLY an anonymized version of the paper. The goal of the anonymized version is to, as much as possible, allow the author(s) of the paper an unbiased review. The anonymized version should have ALL references to the authors removed (including author’s names and affiliation plus identifying information within the body of the paper such as websites or related publications). Self-citations need not be removed if they are worded so that the reviewer doesn’t know if the writer is citing himself/herself. That is, instead of writing “We reported on our first experiment in 2007 in a previous paper [1]”, the writer might write “In 2007, an initial experiment was done in this area as reported in [1]. If the paper is accepted for the conference and for publication, authors will be asked to complete a camera-ready copy that will include all appropriate author names, citations, and references.
