Post COVID-19 Higher Education In Computing Technologies


In this one-day workshop, the attendees will discuss different learning experiences of computing and engineering classes, covering course activities, involving group work and coding which hastily moved online during COVID but now post COVID are becoming more blended.  We will hear from expert presenters about digital innovations, how Learning Outcomes have been re-aligned, and recent research and connections about employability skills. Scholars who specialize in computing education will give keynote speeches in this workshop and activities will center around the four themes or topics listed below. The workshop will invite academic papers, where the authors will present their latest computing education research outcomes relevant to these themes.

Paper submission

Papers should be submitted through EAI ‘Confy+‘ system, and have to comply with the Springer format (see Author’s kit section).

The workshop accepts regular papers (12-20 pages) as well as short papers (6-11 pages).

All conference papers undergo a thorough peer review process prior to the final decision and publication. This process is facilitated by experts in the Technical Program Committee during a dedicated conference period. Standard peer review is enhanced by EAI Community Review which allows EAI members to bid to review specific papers. All review assignments are ultimately decided by the responsible Technical Program Committee Members while the Technical Program Committee Chair is responsible for the final acceptance selection.
