International Conference on Computing Education Research
16th KOLI CALLING INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COMPUTING EDUCATION RESEARCH
Koli, Finland, 24-27 November 2016
Koli Calling is one of the leading international conferences dedicated to the scholarship of teaching and learning and to education research in the computing disciplines. Koli Calling aims to publish high quality papers that combine teaching and learning experiences with solid, theoretically anchored research. The conference is held annually at the Hotel Koli, about 60km north of Joensuu, Finland. The 2016 conference is organised by the University of Eastern Finland in collaboration with Monash University, Australia.
Extended submission deadline: we offer a re-submission slack of exactly one week. If a paper is submitted by the 5 August deadline, it will be possible to submit updated versions of the paper until 12 August. Papers that are not first submitted by 5 August, or that are not reasonably complete at that time, will not be considered.
AUTHORS PLEASE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date is expected to be one week prior to the first day of the conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
Koli Calling is a single-track conference with research, practice and systems presentations as well as keynote and invited talks. The conference language is English. The conference is known for its moderate size, intimate atmosphere, and lively discussions. To maintain this reputation, a limited number of submissions will be accepted. In 2015 about 48 participants attended the conference from 14 countries on 4 continents.
Original submissions are invited in all areas related to the conference theme and should have an explicit connection to computing education. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
SUBMISSION CATEGORIESResearch papers (up to 10 pages) present high-quality research, broadly categorised as empirical, theoretical or systems papers.
Please follow the instructions on the conference web page, http://www.kolicalling.fi/.
REVIEW PROCESS AND PUBLICATION
To ensure selection of high quality contributions, submissions for the Research, System, and Short Paper categories are reviewed by at least three members of the international program committee. Demo and Poster abstracts are reviewed by at least two members of the program committee. The Koli Calling program committee takes pride in considering submissions thoroughly and providing constructive feedback. The review process is double-blind, so submitted papers should be anonymised.
All papers from the conference will be indexed and available through the ACM Digital Library.
