Review process and Publication

The conference wishes to promote research in the field of computer science education. Therefore papers in the research paper category will be rigorously reviewed by three members of the program committee, to make them acceptable, for example, to be included in CS education doctoral theses. Moreover, the best research papers will be published in the international journal Informatics in Education during 2005.

Discussion papers, demos and posters will be reviewed by two members of the program committee.

All contributions are published in the printed proceedings by the Helsinki University of Technology that will appear after the conference. Comments and suggestions on the papers which are given during the conference, should be incorporated into the final version.
