The Computer Science Education Research Conference (CSERC) is an international forum for researchers with interests in all aspects of computer science education. It embraces a broad view of current and future trends in computer science education and aspires to be a lively environment for presenting the latest research results. The CSERC Series started in 2011 in Heerlen (the Netherlands). It was followed by meetings in Wrocław (2012), Nijmegen (2013), Berlin (2014), Pretoria (2016) and Helsinki (2017).

  • broader topics, such as curriculum, group-work, or class infrastructure.

Types of paper accepted might include:

  • experience reports describing a classroom innovation and an assessment of its impact
  • software reports describing tools developed for learning or assessment in computing
  • research reports describing projects undertaken to investigate aspects of computing education.

Colocation in Russia

In 2018 CSERC co-locates with the 11th International Conference on Informatics in Schools: Situation, Evolution and Perspectives (ISSEP 2018) hosted by Saint-Petersburg Electrotechnical University "LETI", Saint-Petersburg, Russia . ISSEP is a forum for researchers and practitioners in the area of Informatics education, in both primary and secondary schools. It provides an opportunity for educators to reflect upon the goals and objectives of this subject matter, its curricula and various teaching/learning paradigms and topics, possible connections to everyday life and various ways of developing Informatics Education in schools.
