Area of Focus

Since 2018, ACM-India has decided to focus the theme of COMPUTE towards improving the quality of computing education in the country. We seek 2-6 page abstracts from faculty and researchers in any theme of computing education, particularly in:

  • Pedagogical tools or methodologies to improve teaching-learning
  • Assessment tools or methodologies that are aligned to learning outcomes
COVID-19 related Note 1:
In view of the prevailing pandemic, this conference will be held virtually. There will be no physical events at VNIT.
COVID-19 related Note 2:
We highly encourage abstracts that discuss successful adaptations to online learning necessitated by the COVID-19 lockdown.

COMPUTE'20 will also feature keynote talks from academic and industry experts on specific topics on pedagogy and assessment. In addition, we plan to have a workshop on research in computer science education. Abstracts that have interesting ideas or proposals will be considered for this workshop, even if they are not well analysed. While COMPUTE doesn't publish proceedings, the conference will provideactive mentorship and facilitate collaborations to selected abstracts so that they can be polished and submitted for international conferences or journals.
