Welcome to ISSEP 2023!

ISSEP 2023 is over! Thank you all for coming!

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.
