Conference Paper

Your culminating writing assignment for the course is a short paper (~4 pages, depending on conference requirements) suitable for submission to an academic conference such as ISLS Annual Meeting, Interaction Design and Children, ACM SIGCSE, ACM CHI, ISTE, CSTA, MozFest, the Web Conference, Fablearn, or ITiCSE. Here is a list of more potentially-relevant conferences. You may also propose a different venue so long as you are writing for some authentic audience. The criteria for your final paper are defined by that venue's submission requirements. Typically, papers of the expected length will be submitted as Notes, Short Papers, Work-in-Progress Papers, or Posters.

Here are some examples. Many are student final projects from Beyond Bits and Atoms, a course Dr. Proctor co-taught with his advisor, Dr. Paulo Blikstein, at Stanford and at Columbia Teachers College.
