Call for Main Conference Papers
(Full, Short, and Poster)

In response to emerging research diversity, ICCE2020 will be a meta-conference, comprising of seven interrelated theme-based conferences. ICCE2020 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 keynote speakers, theme-based invited speakers, expert panels on topics of current interest, and pre-conference tutorials, workshops, Doctoral Student Consortia (DSC) and Early Career Workshop (ECW). Researchers, graduate or undergraduate students, policymakers and educators are invited to participate in all aspects of the conference.

Accepted papers in the main conference, Workshops, Work-in-Progress Posters (WIPP), Doctoral Student Consortia (DSC), Early Career Workshop (ECW) and Extended Summaries (ES) 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 in Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning (RPTEL), the official academic journal of the Asia Pacific Society for Computers in Education.

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 not only 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.

Please refer to the submission guidelines before submitting your papers and download the latest version of the Paper Template file (Word version) in preparing your manuscript.

Paper Submission:

Please note that the paper template has been revised – please download the latest version of the template instead of reusing the previous year’s template.

We strongly suggest that you use the paper template and do the change directly on it by typing and copying/pasting pure text in it. In such a case, your paper’s format can be the same as the sample paper.

The conference practices a single-blind review process, i.e., the authors of the submitting papers will not know who their referees are, while the referees will be aware of the authors of the papers that they are reviewing. Anonymisation is no longer required in the submitted manuscripts.

All the accepted full papers are eligible for the competitions of:

  • Best Overall Paper Award
  • Best Student Paper Award (restricted to papers whose first author is a graduate or undergraduate student)

In addition, all the accepted poster papers are eligible for the competition of Best
Poster Design Award(s). Please visit the award rules and criteria.
