Call for Abstracts and Papers
The Australasian Computing Education Conference (ACE) is a conference on research and innovation in computing education in its various aspects, at all levels and in all contexts. Topics of interest for the conference include, but are not limited to:
- the use of technology in computing education;
- course content;
- curriculum structure;
- methods of assessment;
- mobile, flexible, online learning and
- evaluations of alternative approaches.
The ACE2018 chairs invite abstracts for full papers, by Sunday 10th September, 2017. Full papers are due
Sunday 17th September, 2017.
Papers on research and innovations may be in the context of formal courses or self-directed learning; they
may involve, for example, introductory programming, service courses, capstone courses, specialist undergraduate
or postgraduate topics, and industry-related short courses. We welcome submissions directed at issues of current
and local importance, as well as topics of international interest. Such topics may include transition from school
to university, articulation between vocational and university education, quality management in teaching, teaching
people from other cultures, globalisation, attracting and retaining female students, online, mobile and blended
The Program Committee will select the papers to appear based on their potential to enhance learning outcomes
in computing courses. All papers will be fully refereed using a double blind reviewing process. If a paper is
co-authored by one of the chairs, the review process for that paper will be managed entirely by the other chair.
Papers must be between 5 and 10 pages long. For detailed instructions on the required format, see the Paper
Submissions page. ACE proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
