SPLASH 2020
Sun 15 - Sat 21 November 2020 Online Conference

SPLASH-E is a symposium, started in 2013, for software and languages (SE/PL) researchers with activities and interests around computing education. Some build pedagogically-oriented languages or tools; some think about pedagogic challenges around SE/PL courses; some bring computing to non-CS communities; some pursue human studies and educational research.

At SPLASH-E, we share our educational ideas and challenges centred in software/languages, as well as our best ideas for advancing such work. SPLASH-E strives to bring together researchers and those with educational interests that arise from software ideas or concerns.

Call for Papers

About the very flexible deadline: We know educators are highly constrained in terms of time – especially now! If you need a more flexible deadline please contact the chairs. Lightning talks can be submitted up to 2 weeks before the event. We can’t guarantee how much time the talk will be allocated. All other papers can even be submitted up to 2 weeks before the camera ready deadline, though the later they are, the less shepherding they will receive (should they need it), and the closer to camera ready we would expect them to be.

Topics of interest: The SPLASH-E Symposium invites contributions to think broadly on how computing education connects to the curricula that students experience. A focus on courses in introductory CS, software engineering, programming languages, and/or compilers (or other SPLASH-related topics) is expected, but not required. Some examples of topics include (but are not limited to):

  • student assessment
  • new best practices
  • innovative curriculum, assessment or course formats
  • multidisciplinary learning environments
  • integration of research into teaching and training
  • individual and multidisciplinary team development
  • methods to involve industry as a key stakeholder in the design, delivery, or both of courses
  • new modes of learning and education in the digital era
  • industrial transfer of educational findings
  • ethics instruction
  • equity, diversity, and inclusion, in the classroom
  • methodological aspects of education
  • application of educational research methods in education
  • online learning and its impact on educational settings and curricula

Lightning Talks

The SPLASH-E 2020 Symposium is accepting proposals for lightning talks to take place during SPLASH-E on Friday, November 20th. Lightning talks can cover projects in progress, zany ideas, reflections, or education opportunities that SE/PL researchers might otherwise miss. These can be a way to find collaborators for projects, inviting critique on research designs, or just ways to inspire good conversations. Lightning talks will be three minutes apiece.

To propose a lightning talk, submit an abstract (500 words max) to https://splash-e20.hotcrp.com. The priority deadline for lightning talk proposals is Tuesday, October 20th, but submissions will be accepted as late as two weeks before SPLASH-E.

Papers

  • Short papers (3-5 pages): Course experience reports: What was new, or different? What worked, or didn’t? What successes would you like to share, or pitfalls can you warn us about?
  • Full papers (10 pages): Conventional papers on education research results, tools or case studies. We also invite papers on retrospective discussions over a longer-term course experiment, or larger-scale curricular design.
  • Page limits do not include bibliographies.
  • If your submission does not conform to one of these formats, please contact the chair to discuss!

Publication information: Short papers and full papers appear in the ACM Digital Library. Lightning talk descriptions will appear on the website only.

Submission instructions:

Submissions should be blinded. use the ACM SIGPLAN Conference acmart Format, with the sigplan and review \documentclass options. This produces two-column, 10pt files. If you use LaTeX or Word, please use the provided ACM SIGPLAN acmart templates provided here. All submissions should be in PDF. Please also ensure that your submission is legible when printed on a black and white printer. In particular, please check that colors remain distinct and font sizes are legible.
