Papers describe an educational research project, classroom experience, teaching technique, curricular initiative, or pedagogical tool. All papers should explicitly state their motivating questions, relate to relevant literature, and contain an analysis of the effectiveness of the interventions. Initial submissions must be anonymous. Note that an ABSTRACT SUBMISSION is required for all papers and it is due a week before the full paper is due.
Possible Paper Topics
Your abstract can be up to 250 words and must be submitted by the paper abstract deadline. There are no formatting requirements for the abstract. When you log in to submit the abstract, you may paste the abstract text into the form field.
The abstract helps reviewers bid for papers that they are qualified and interested in reviewing. To help the bidding and reviewing process, please submit an abstract that is as close to the finished version as possible.
Authors must submit ONLY an anonymized version of the paper. The goal of the anonymized version is to, as much as possible, allow the author(s) of the paper an unbiased review. The anonymized version should have ALL references to the authors removed (including author’s names and affiliation plus identifying information within the body of the paper such as websites or related publications). Self-citations need not be removed if they are worded so that the reviewer doesn’t know if the writer is citing themselves. That is, instead of writing “We reported on our first experiment in 2018 in a previous paper ”, the writer might write “In 2018, an initial experiment was done in this area as reported in .
If the paper is accepted for the conference and for publication, authors will be asked to complete a camera-ready copy that will include all appropriate author names, citations, and references.
Authors are required to use the new templates that ACM introduced in December 2016. The initial Word template was monstrously difficult to use, and ACM has now replaced it with an interim Word template while they try to address the difficulties. The interim Word template is definitely easier to use, but it can still be difficult to coerce it to produce a paper that conforms with the requirements. Authors who use Microsoft Word should be prepared for a significant challenge in getting an accepted paper to conform with the requirements ready for inclusion in the proceedings. Some authors have decided that it is easier to (re)learn LaTeX and use the LaTeX template on Overleaf than to fight with the Word template.
The paper is limited to a maximum of 6 pages + 1 page for references and must adhere to ACM’s publication guidelines: Formatting requirements, MS Word template, and LaTeX template. Note that paper submissions in MSWord should use the “Interim Layout” template. Submissions using Latex should use the sample-sigconf.tex file which can be found in the acmart-master.zip file. A LaTeX template can also be found on Overleaf.
If your paper is accepted you will have a chance to modify your publication version before it is published.
Write your paper using the format specified above. Within the anonymized paper, you must provide Category and Subject Descriptors, General Terms, and Keywords based on the ACM classification system. These requirements are described in more detail in the ACM publication guidelines.
Be sure to choose the appropriate topic areas when submitting. Your choices help in assigning appropriate reviewers to your submission, and assist the reviewers in evaluating the paper from an appropriate perspective.Please limit the number of topic choices to no more than 5. This will help match your submission with reviewers.
