Special Tracks

Special Track on Computing Education “Innovations for Computing Education”

Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society.


Computing is undergoing big changes. Nowadays, computers are not only desktop machines but also lightweight notebooks inside your bags and smart devices inside your pockets. With the popularity of cloud technologies, computing can now be delivered as utility services. Furthermore, computing knowledge is changing so fast that what students learn today will likely become obsolete tomorrow. There are also many emerging technologies and methodologies for computing education. In view of such trends and developments, there is a need to study how computing education should change and innovate, from both curricular and technology perspectives. Under the theme “Innovations for Computing Education”, this special track provides an interactive forum for educators and researchers to exchange views, ideas and experiences on computing education. For enquiries on this special track, please contact Dr. Henry Chan (


International iCampus Forum (IC14) “Smart Education for the 21st century”

The forum will take place on 10 December 2014.


TALE2014 will be host to the IC2014 iCampus Forum, covering topics related to smart learning and teaching both in the technological and/or pedagogical domains. Papers are currently being accepted for delivery at this special forum. The forum is comprised of three main sessions, namely the invited speakers session, research papers session, and roundtable/panel session.

This event seeks to address various pertinent topics of interest related to next generation technology and campus environments, including but not limited to areas of research in the iCampus domains of intelligence: iLearning, iSocial, iGreen, iHealth, iManagement, and iGovernance.
