NECC-82 Call For Participation

The 1982 National Educational Computing Conference (NECC-82) will be held in Kansas City, Missouri, June 28-30, 1982. The purpose of the conference is to provide a broad and rich forum for discussion among individuals interested in educational computing. Based on previous conferences, approximately 1000 people from institutions at all levels are expected to attend.

Authors are invited to submit papers describing actual experiences with computer use in the classroom or the consequences of concrete results or be survey or tutorial papers which include a synthesis and thorough evaluation. Generally, papers that describe projects presented at previous conferences are not considered unless substantial new information can be reported. In this case provide a brief synopsis of the earlier paper clearly indicating the new information. It is expected that most papers will report on specific accomplishment. Papers reporting negative results are also encouraged, especially when the results could have a profound effect in the way educational computing should be viewed. The deadline for submission of papers is Jan. 15, 1982.
