CSTA Annual Conference Call for Proposals

The Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) invites you to participate in the 13th Annual CSTA Conference.  This event will be held July 15-16 2013, in Quincy, MA (just outside Boston). 

The CSTA 2013 Program Committee seeks proposal submissions related to the practice of teaching and learning computer science and information technology in K–12. Proposals will be accepted for one-hour presentations or panels or for three-hour workshops. 

The deadline for proposals is January 24, 2013. Review of proposals will occur shortly thereafter and notification of decision will be made on or about March 7, 2013.  Successful proposers should expect to be asked to submit a reasonably final copy of their presentation by June 20, 2013. 

We desire a varied program of interest to all teachers of computing in K-12 education.  All submission will be evaluated on the following criteria:

      technical quality,

      writing and presentation,

      relevance to CS&IT (focus on K-12 computer science or information technology).

Preference will be given to workshop proposals that are largely hands-on activities. 

Proposers are required to:

      identify all presenters

      provide an overview of the session

      describe the intended audience (level, knowledge, …)

      indicate session activity in sufficient detail for an informed decision

      discuss presenter background and presentation experience 

All proposals will be submitted through the online symposium submission system that can be found at: 


If you encounter a problem, contact Duncan Buell at:  buell@acm.org

Presenters will have the use of a computer projector and screen.  Proposers should describe any unusual infrastructure, A/V equipment, or lab facility needed; it may be possible to accommodate such requests but this cannot be guaranteed. 

Additional conference details can be found at: 


We look forward to receiving your proposals and to your attendance at the symposium. 

CSTA 2013 is generously sponsored by the Oracle, Microsoft, and Microsoft Research and the Anita Borg Institute.
