The International Conference on Informatics in Schools: Situation, Evolution, and Perspective (ISSEP) is an established forum for researchers and practitioners in the area of Computer Science Education with a focus on secondary schools. The ISSEP series started in 2005 in Klagenfurt, with following meetings held in Vilnius (2006), Torun (2008), Zürich (2010), Bratislava (2011), Oldenburg (2013), and Istanbul (2014). The conference language is English.


The main topics of the conference are:

    Sustainable education in Informatics for pupils of all ages
    Connecting Informatics lessons to the students’ everyday lives
    Teacher education in Informatics
    Research on Informatics in schools (empirical / qualitative / quantitative / theory building / research methods / comparative studies / transferability of methods and results from other disciplines)

In particular, contributions solicited cover a variety of topics including but not limited to:

    Classroom management
    Communication skills
    Contests and Competitions in Informatics
    Computers and society
    Curriculum issues
    Research in Informatics education
    Diagnostic teaching
    Empirical methods
    Ethical/societal issues
    Gender and diversity issues
    High school/college transition issues
    Information systems
    Interdisciplinary courses and projects
    Laboratory/active learning
    Student retention and persistence
    Teacher education
    Role of programming and algorithmics
    Using emerging instructional technologies
    Web-based techniques


Authors are invited to submit high-quality manuscripts reporting original unpublished research and recent developments in the topics related to the symposium. Simultaneous submission to other conferences or workshops with published proceedings is not allowed.

There are three different submission categories:

    Research and theory papers
    Best practice papers / country reports
    Work in progress / discussion papers

Papers must be formatted in LaTeX, using the LNCS style file (available here). The maximum length of the paper (including references, but excluding the optional appendix) is 12 pages. Do not change the margin size or the font, do not make a separate title page, etc.: use the LNCS style file as given, but please do add page numbers, which can be done, for example, by adding \pagestyle{plain} just before \begin{document}. All papers will be peer reviewed and comments will be provided to the authors. The submission system can be accessed via EasyChair. 


Accepted papers will be published in the ISSEP 2015 proceedings. Selected, high-qualitity papers will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (Springer-Verlag).
