The International Conference on Informatics in Schools: Situation, Evolution and Perspectives (ISSEP) is a forum for researchers and practitioners in the area of Informatics education, in both primary and secondary schools. The conference provides an opportunity for educators and researchers to reflect upon the goals and objectives of this subject matter, its curricula, various teaching and learning paradigms and topics, as well as the connections to everyday life — including the various ways of developing Informatics Education in schools.
Before the pre-ISSEP preparations concretely start, everyone is warmly welcome to say hello and participate in ISSEP’s online social network, Mattermost. News and announcement that appear here will also be posted there—if you wish, you can subscribe to the notifications of the ISSEP2023 channel.
The ISSEP conference started in 2005 in Klagenfurt, Austria. It was followed by meetings in Vilnius (2006), Torun (2008), Zürich (2010), Bratislava (2011), Oldenburg (2013), Istanbul (2014), Ljubljana (2015), Münster (2016), Helsinki (2017), Saint-Petersburg (2018), Larnaca (2019), Tallin (2020), Nijmegen (2021) and Vienna (2022).
The 16th ISSEP conference is an on-site conference organized by HEP Vaud (Switzerland), a university of teacher education, and will take place in Lausanne, 23-25 October 2023. A doctoral consortium will also be held on Sunday 22 October, right before the conference.
