What is a tips, techniques, and courseware session?

A tips, techniques, and courseware (TT&C) session provides an opportunity to share practical ideas, specific assignments, pedagogical tools, methods of assessment, class activities, or software/courseware that supports learning in computing. A brief demonstration may also be included. Presentations are limited to a total length of only 10 minutes including discussion and changeover, so you will need to keep your message short, exact, crisp, and to the point. This is a real challenge, but also contributes largely to the flavour of this session and its attractiveness for attendees.

To ensure rapid transitions between presentations, presenters must submit their presentation material in advance of the session and use conference-provided hardware to present their materials. Each accepted proposal is published in the conference proceedings.

Formatting the proposal

While most TT&C presentations include some sort of demonstration, they also have a two-page proposal or extended abstract. It is this proposal that is used to review the submission, and that will be published with the conference proceedings if the submission is accepted. The proposal is limited to two pages and must adhere to ACM’s publication guidelines. For more detail, see Formatting requirements on the Call for Participation page.

To facilitate the transition from proposal to camera-ready copy, it is critical that authors adhere closely to the formatting specifications and the page limit.
