The International Conference on Informatics in Schools: Situation, Evolution

and Perspectives (ISSEP) is a forum for researchers and practitioners in the

area of Informatics education, in both primary and secondary schools. The

conference provides an opportunity for educators and researchers to reflect

upon the goals and objectives of this subject matter, its curricula, various

teaching and learning paradigms and topics, as well as the connections to

everyday life — including the various ways of developing Informatics

Education in schools.


The conference focuses on educational goals and objectives of Informatics

or Computer Science as a subject matter in primary, secondary and

vocational education and their different realisation in compulsory and

voluntary courses.

List of Main Topics

  • 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) • Computer tools in teaching and studying Informatics In particular
  • contributions solicited cover a variety of topics including but not limited to: • Accessibility • Assessment • Application of intelligent technologies to personalise learning • Application of Learning Analytics to analyse learners behaviour • Classroom management • Communication skills • Contests and Competitions in Informatics • Computers and society • Courseware • Curriculum issues • 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 • Learner profiles • Learning personalisation • Misconceptions • Multimedia • Pedagogy • Programming contests • Students cognitive traits • Students learning styles • Student retention and persistence • Research in Informatics education • Role of programming and algorithmics • Teacher education • Using emerging instructional technologies • Web-based techniques Work submitted to ISSEP should be novel and material that has been previously published should not be republished unless the work has been significantly revised. Note however
  • that while novel work is highly valued
  • constructive replication of previous studies can also be a significant contribution
  • and a new interpretation or evaluation of previously-published work can make a good contribution. The submission site for ISSEP 2019 will be available soon on the conference web site.

Submission Instructions

Authors are invited to submit high-quality manuscripts reporting original

unpublished research and recent developments in the topics related to the

conference. All papers will be peer reviewed and comments will be provided

to the authors.


There are three different submission categories:

• Research and theory papers

• Best practice papers / country reports

• Work in progress / discussion papers


Submissions must be formatted according to the Springer LNCS style

guidelines  using LaTeX. The maximum length of the paper (including

references, but excluding the optional appendix) is 12 pages. For online

Latex editors, see e.g. Overleaf and ShareLatex. Abstract length —

200-300 words.


Submissions are reviewed using a double-blind process. Authors should

leave their names and affiliations blank in the articles submitted for review,

and take care to avoid details in the article that could be used to identify the

authors. These include institution information, specific funding information

and clear self-citations.


When using the LNCS style, do not change the margin size or the font, do

not make a separate title page, etc.: use the LNCS style file as given.

However, please do add page numbers, which can be done, for example,

by adding \pagestyle{plain} just before \begin{document}.


Accepted papers will be included in the ISSEP 2019 local proceedings.

Selected top quality papers will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes

in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Authors will also have the possibility to

extend their work and publish it in the journal “Computer Tools in

Education Journal”.
