2023 ISCAP Conference

Computing Education + Information Systems Applied Research


Nov 1-4, 2023
Hotel Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA

Welcome from the Conference Chair

We are delighted to invite you to submit your original pedagogical and applied information systems research and teaching papers to the 2023 ISCAP Conference on Computing Education and Information Systems Applied Research. The Conference solicits traditional scholarly papers, teaching materials with associated teaching notes, as well as abstracts, workshops, and panel discussions.

There is some deliberate overlap in the Focus Areas, so that authors can choose the one that best fits their professional goals. Teaching Exercises and Cases may address any one or more of the four Focus Areas. An extensive list of topic areas may be found here.

The ISCAP Conference (along with its predecessors, EDSIGCON and CONISAR) prides itself on being a collegial, developmental venue. We welcome papers from newer faculty, as well as qualified student authors and presenters. All research papers, teaching cases and exercises, and instructor notes go through a double-blind peer review process to ensure quality content at the Conference and in future Journal submissions.

And of course, as a volunteer-run Conference, we offer a range of volunteer opportunities – please come and meet the group, and find your research and publication home here!

Yours sincerely,

Paul D. Witman, Ph.D.

Conference Chair
On behalf of the 2023 Conference Team
and all members of ISCAP

All cancellations or changes must be in writing and sent to publisher@isedj.org.

Virtual Registration

ISCAP-EDSIG recognizes that participants may have limited ability to travel due to institutional restrictions or underlying health concerns. This year’s conference will have a limited virtual option for accepted papers. Authors will have the ability to present their work live, engage with peers who are at the conference site, and view/engage with other paper presentations from one breakout room (approximately 35 presentations). Accepted papers for the virtual option are eligible for awards, journal publications, and conference proceedings per the published deadline dates for the in-person conference.

During registration, authors will indicate whether they intend to attend the conference in-person or virtually. Virtual registrations must be requested by October 20. We will do our best to accommodate changes if space permits. Previous registrations can be changed from virtual to in-person or vice-versa. Those who change from virtual to in-person will be charged an additional $100. Those who change from in-person to virtual be refunded $100. Refer to the cancellation policy for specifics regarding refund procedures.

The number of virtual attendees will be limited and is at the discretion of the conference committee. The total number of virtual attendees will be determined by the virtual registration deadline, October 1.

Virtual presentations will occur between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm, Eastern Standard Time. A session chair will be present to coordinate virtual conferencing software and facilitate the in-person audience question and answer portion.
