Open call for papers: FabLearn Europe & MakeEd 2020

Open call for papers

Due to the unprecedented global pandemic, the steering committee of FabLearn Europe & MakeEd 2020 has decided not to hold a conference in London this year.

Submissions must present original work in the realm of computing, design, and making or digital fabrication in educational settings. Submissions must cite relevant published work, indicate novel approaches, and stress the importance of the submission to these hands-on learning communities. Topics related to COMPUTING, DESIGN and MAKING in EDUCATION include but are not limited to:

  • Case studies, best practices and evaluations
  • Innovative approaches, methods and ideas
  • Emerging technologies and tools
  • Theoretical perspectives and concerns

Submission guidelines

Submissions must be between 4000 and 8000 words with the normal length being around 5500 words excluding references. Please carefully follow the author guidelines at https://bit.ly/2wOD1m9 while preparing your manuscript.
