Call for Position Papers: 4th International Conference on Computer Supported Education CSEDU 2012

Date: April 16 – 18, 2012
Venue: Porto, Portugal

Deadline for Position Paper Submission: January 30, 2012

CSEDU 2012 (4th International Conference on Computer Supported Education) is now welcoming the submission of position papers whose deadline is scheduled for January 30, 2012.

A position paper presents an arguable opinion about an issue. The goal of a position paper is to convince the audience that your opinion is valid and worth listening to, without the need to present completed research work and/or validated results. It is, nevertheless, important to support your argument with evidence to ensure the validity of your claims. A position paper may be a short report and discussion of ideas, facts, situations, methods, procedures or results of scientific research (bibliographic, experimental, theoretical, or other) focused on one of the conference topics.
The acceptance of a position paper is restricted to the categories of “short paper” or “poster”. Please check further details about position papers submission at the conference website.
