Fwd: Call for Submissions for a Special Issue of ACM TOCE
Call for Submissions for a Special Issue of
ACM Transactions on Computing Education on
Concurrent, Parallel and Distributed Computation
The past few years have seen a significant change in the computer
architecture that is readily available to students and educators: for
example, multicore processors and cloud computing. Furthermore,
programming languages used for teaching have multithreading defined
within the language. Even visual programming environments for young
people like Scratch and Alice support concurrency.
The editors of this Special Issue are looking for papers describing
innovative approaches to teaching and learning this subject. Preference
will be given to papers that include an empirical evaluation.
A preliminary one-page abstract of the paper should be sent to the
editors of the Special Issue by 1 October 2011. The editors will assess
the relevance of the papers for the Special Issue by 15 October. The
deadline for submission of full papers is 1 December 2011.
