Deadline for Session and Workshop Proposals for CSTA 2014 Conference

The deadline for session and workshop proposals for the 2014 CSTA conference on K-12 computer science education is November 15, 2013.

In addition to 3-hour workshops and 1-hour sessions, this year’s conference will include a limited number of 20-minute mini-sessions that focus on pedagogy and best teaching practices.

Proposals for all three session types must include:

·    the names and contact information for all presenters

·     an overview of the session

·     a description of the intended audience (level, knowledge, …)

·     a description of session activity (in sufficient detail for an informed decision)

·     presenter background and presentation experience

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

https://www.softconf.com/d/csta2014

If you encounter a problem with the submission system, please contact Duncan Buell at buell@acm.org.

All proposals will be peer reviewed and submitters will be notified of a decision in early January 2014.  Submissions will be evaluated on the following criteria:

  • technical quality
  • writing and presentation
  • relevance to CSTA (focus on K-12 computer science or information technology)

Successful proposers should expect to be asked to submit a reasonably final copy of their presentation by June 8, 2014.

Additional conference details can be found at http://www.cstaconference.org.

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