25th International Conference on Computers in Education (ICCE 2017)

Christchurch, New Zealand

December 4-8 (Monday-Friday), 2017
Organized by the Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education
Hosted by the University of Canterbury, New Zealand

In response to emerging research diversity, ICCE 2017 will be a meta-conference, comprising of seven interrelated theme-based conferences. Accepted papers in the main conference, workshops and Doctoral Student Consortium will be published in proceedings, which will be submitted to Elsevier for inclusion in Scopus. Proceedings of the main conference (excluding posters) will also be submitted to Thomson Reuters for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings Citation Index. Authors of accepted distinguished full papers will be invited to submit extended versions of the papers for consideration of publication Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning (RPTEL), the official academic journal of the Asia Pacific Society for Computers in Education. ICCE 2017 will be a conference for researchers in the Asia-Pacific region to connect with international research communities for the worldwide dissemination and sharing of ideas for research in the field of Computers in Education. Seven interrelated sub-conferences on specialized themes, each of which is organized by a program committee appointed by the respective Special Interest Group (SIG), will be part of the five-day conference schedule. In addition, the conference will include invited speakers, expert panels on topics of current interest, and pre-conference tutorials, workshops, and a Doctoral Student Consortium (DSC). Researchers, graduate or undergraduate students, policy makers and educators are invited to participate in all aspects of the conference.

Separate calls for papers are available for each sub-conference under the following seven themes:

The seven theme-based sub-conferences will foster the building of strong research communities within the broader field of Computers in Education and Educational Technology. The meta-conference umbrella will play the dual role of allowing researchers to enhance their identity in their thematic research communities, but also allowing cross-disciplinary interactions to help broaden the scope of and inspire future innovative research.
