CALL FOR PAPERS
ICPEC - 1st International Computer Programming Education Conference
https://icpeconf.org
23-24 April 2020
###################################################################

Computer programming is a fascinating area, but at the same time, complex. In the teaching-learning process, teachers face many difficulties to find techniques and methodologies to facilitate the learning of programming languages and to foster problem-solving skills. At the same time, students find it difficult to understand the subjects and do not feel motivated to continue pursuing their studies and get good grades.
ICPEC aims to be a space frequented by teachers and researchers to discuss topics that promote new methodologies, best practices, trends, techniques and tools to improve the teaching-learning process of computer programming.

###################################################################
Topics of Interest
###################################################################
We encourage everyone to submit novel and innovative work in areas including but not limited to:

Computer programming standardization and interoperability
- Programming language concepts and methodologies;
- Programming exercises standards and specifications;
- E-learning data analytics;
- Learning tools interoperability;
- Learning cloud services;
- Data and graph visualization languages.

Computer programming environments, tools, and services
- Learning Management Systems;
- Massive Open Online Courses;
- Repositories of programming exercises;
- Intelligent Tutors;
- Automatic assessment tools;
- Plagiarism tools.

Computing programmes, curricula, and courses
- E-learning and B-learning in computer programming courses;
- Programming languages teaching methods;
- Developing, implementing, or evaluating computing programmes, curricula, and courses;
- Pedagogies to foster learning in CS areas (e.g. programming, database systems, physical computing, computer security);
- Social and global challenges in computing education.

Innovative use of technologies
- Novel educational methods;
- Educational resources recommendation;
- Sequencing of educational resources;
- Gamification in computer programming education;
- Game-based learning;
- AI to drive student progress (e.g. bot coaching).

Submission & Indexing
###################################################################
All the submissions will be managed through the EasyChair online system at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icpec2020.
All accepted papers will be published as post-proceedings publication through Communications in Computer and Information Science, by Springer. Best papers will be published in a Special Issue on Computer Programming Education [https://www.mdpi.com/journal/information/special_issues/programming_education], in Information Journal, by MDPI.

Papers presented at ICPEC should address aspects of the teaching-learning process of computer programming. They may describe an educational research project, classroom experience, teaching technique or methodology, curricular initiative, or pedagogical tool. At least one author for each accepted paper must register at the conference.
Paper types
- Full papers — 8 to 12 pages, presented in 20+5 minutes, complete work, including a validation or discussion;
- Short papers — 5 to 8 pages, presented in 10+5 minutes, ongoing work, well anchored in the literature, but not yet fully validated;
