Western Canadian Conference on Computing Education (WCCCE 2017)

Call for papers


WCCCE 2017 welcomes papers, proposals for panels, and student posters on the following (but not limited to) topics:

The Western Canadian Conference on Computing Education is a forum for disseminating information pertaining to the development and delivery of programs and courses in computer science, computer technology, or information systems, broadly defined. The conference’s purpose is to bring together university and college educators along with industrial partners and government officials who have an interest in the instruction and delivery of computer related course and the development and evolution of computing education.

The Western Canadian Conference on Computing Education is a forum for discussing the development of computing programs and curricula and for sharing innovative strategies and tools for teaching and learning in fields such as computer science, computer technology, and information systems. WCCCE 2017  will take place on May 5th and 6th  and is being hosted by the Department of Computer Science at the University of the Fraser Valley in Abbotsford BC. The conference strives to bring together university and college educators, as well as industry and government representatives who have an interest in computing education.

WCCCE 2017 is  soliciting papers (both long and short), demonstrations and panels across a wide range of topics of interest to the Computer Science and Information Technology educational community.  Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Post secondary programs and curricula
  • New or experimental curricula at any level
  • Teaching methods or tools for specific concepts or courses
  • Materials for specific concepts or courses
  • General methods and tools for computer related courses
  • Methods, tools and effective structures of designing and teaching computer labs
  • Applications and techniques to support  distance and/or distributed learning
  • Multimedia applications for computer education

Participation can take the form of:

  • A full length paper, not more than 6 pages, for inclusion in the conference proceedings and presentation during our paper sessions.
  • A short 1-2 page description on a topic/idea for presentation in one of our short presentation sessions.

So if you are effectively using unique methods to teach a computer related topic, have successfully adopted, or developed,  a new tool or technology in your computer related courses or labs, this is an opportunity to tell people about it. Or maybe, you have tried something and it doesn’t work. People will still be interested tell people about it so they don’t make the same mistakes. If you have developed a tool that improves instruction quality for your courses, this is the place to demonstrate it. Even if you have tried methods or tools in your instruction with little success, we are still eager to hear about it. Your experience will help us all.
