CALL FOR PAPERS

ICPEC – 1st International Computer Programming Education Conference

https://icpeconf.org

23-24 April 2020

###################################################################

Computer programming is a fascinating area, but at the same time, complex. In the teaching-learning process, teachers face many difficulties to find techniques and methodologies to facilitate the learning of programming languages and to foster problem-solving skills. At the same time, students find it difficult to understand the subjects and do not feel motivated to continue pursuing their studies and get good grades.

ICPEC aims to be a space frequented by teachers and researchers to discuss topics that promote new methodologies, best practices, trends, techniques and tools to improve the teaching-learning process of computer programming.
