Deadline for Proposals for CSTA Conference Approaching

The deadline for session and workshop proposals for the 2014 CSTA conference on K-12 computer science education is November 15, 2013.

In addition to 3-hour workshops and 1-hour sessions, this year's conference will include a limited number of 20-minute mini-sessions that focus on pedagogy and best teaching practices.

Proposals for all three session types must include:

  • the names and contact information for all presenters
  • an overview of the session
  • a description of the intended audience (level, knowledge, …)
  • a description of session activity (in sufficient detail for an informed decision)
  • presenter background and presentation experience

All proposals must be submitted through the online symposium submission system that can be found at:

If you encounter a problem with the submission system, please contact Duncan Buell at

All proposals will be peer reviewed and submitters will be notified of a decision in early January 2014. Submissions will be evaluated on the following criteria:

  • technical quality
  • writing and presentation
  • relevance to CSTA (focus on K-12 computer science or information technology)

Successful proposers should expect to be asked to submit a reasonably final copy of their presentation by June 8, 2014.

Additional conference details can be found at

We look forward to receiving your proposals and to your attendance at the symposium.
