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.


The ISSEP conference started in 2005 in Klagenfurt. It was followed by meetings in Vilnius (2006), Torun (2008), Zürich (2010), Bratislava (2011), Oldenburg (2013), Istanbul (2014), Ljubljana (2015) and Münster (2016).

The 10th ISSEP conference will take place at the University of Helsinki, Finland, 13-15th of November 2017. The ISSEP conference will host CSERC as a special track. Educators and researchers who are interested in Computing Education Research are encouraged to also attend the Koli Calling International Conference on Computing Education Research, which will be held on 16-19th of November at Koli, north of Joensuu, Finland.
