In response to emerging research diversity, ICCE2014 will be a meta-conference, comprising of seven co-located theme-based conferences.

All the accepted papers will be published in proceedings which will be indexed by Elsevier Bibliographic Databases (e.g., Scopus, Engineering Village and others). 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.

ICCE2014 will be a meta-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. Papers submitted to the seven sub-conferences can be: (1) Full Papers (8-10 proceedings pages), (2) short papers (5- 6 proceedings pages), and (3) posters (2-3 proceedings pages).

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.

Paper categories (Note the revised page limits):

  • Full paper (8-10 pages)
  • Short paper (5-6 pages)
  • Poster paper (2-3 pages)

Please refer to the submission guidelines before submitting your papers. For past authors of ICCE, please note that the paper template has been substantially revised. Do download the LATEST VERSION of the PAPER TEMPLATE in preparing your manuscript.

Another major change is that the conference will practice single-blind review from this year onward, 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. Anonymization 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 authors are graduate or undergraduate students)
  • Best Technical Design Paper Award

In addition, all the accepted poster papers are eligible for the competition of Best Poster Design Award(s).
