Welcome to ICER 2012
THE EIGHTH INTERNATIONAL COMPUTING EDUCATION RESEARCH WORKSHOP
AUT looks forward to hosting ACM’s international ICER Workshop at its city (Wellesley) campus, in conjunction with Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology. This is the first time the conference has been hosted in New Zealand.
The workshop will be held from Monday 10th – 11th September 2012, preceded by a Doctoral consortium on Sunday 9th September.
The ICER workshop is ACM’s premier conference addressing research into Computing Education: the study of how people come to understand computational processes and devices, and how to improve that understanding. As computation becomes ubiquitous in our world, understanding of computing in order to design, structure, maintain, and utilize these technologies becomes increasingly important–both for the technology professional, but also for the technologically literate citizen. The study of how the understanding of computation develops, and how to improve that understanding, is critically important for the technology-dependent societies in which we live.
The conference will be held in room WF503 on the fifth floor of the Business Building corner of Wakefield St and Mayoral Drive. The Workshop on BABELnot Project will be held in room WT201 and the doctoral consortium will be held in room WT202. Both the workshop on BABELnot Project and the doctoral consortium will be located at the AUT Tower building on the corner of Wakefield and Queen St, entry via level 1 reception on Wakefield St. See attached map
