The Design in Engineering Education Division (DEED) invites abstracts for papers to be presented at the 2020 ASEE Annual Conference to be held June 21 - 24, 2020, in Montréal, Québec, Canada. Abstracts may be submitted on topics related to the role of design in engineering education.
Abstract Submissions Open - September 3, 2019
Abstract Submissions Due - October 14, 2019
Draft Paper (for accepted abstracts) Due - February 3, 2020
The 2020 Conference Authors Kit is available on this link:
The purpose of DEED is to disseminate knowledge, learning and best-practice experiences that improve the quality of engineering design education proficiencies and pedagogy. This division is relevant and inclusive to both engineering design instructors and research practitioners. DEED defines relevant and inclusive as applicable and comprehensive through the education and research processes to the design education community.
DEED seeks contributions on topics that include, but are not limited to, capstone design, first-year engineering design, innovation in design education, design instruction and pedagogy, teams and teamwork in design education, design for community, interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary design, use of technology to enhance design education, sustainable design, design for “X”, assessment of design activities, design realization, design methodology as well as design-based entrepreneurial mindset, and how these topics relate to equity, access, diversity, and inclusion.
Authors are encouraged to submit work that is beneficial to other design educators and to suggest strategies for transferability and/or implementation. Assessment of work is strongly encouraged when possible, but not compulsory if it’s not suitable for the topic at hand. DEED is also requesting proposals for Workshops, Panels, Special Sessions, new session topics and new session.
Please review the ASEE DEED Paper Guidelines for DEED-specific details related to manuscript submissions. The ASEE DEED Paper Guidelines will be used as a basis for all manuscript reviews. The 2020 ASEE DEED Paper Guidelines will be posted on the DEED website at http://deed.asee.org/index.php/conference-info/.
Podium, Postcard and Poster Sessions
DEED accepts both completed research efforts and those that are a “Work in Progress” for inclusion as peer-reviewed papers in the annual conference. “Work in Progress” is a mechanism/forum for authors to share and receive feedback on preliminary work. “Work in Progress” submissions are identified both through Monolith and through their title, are included in the conference proceedings, and are typically presented in the DEED Poster or Postcard sessions. Accepted final papers will be published in the proceedings and presented in one of three different types of sessions: Podium sessions, Postcard sessions, and Poster sessions. Each are described briefly below:
1) Podium Sessions are traditional research presentations and will occur during division technical sessions. The podium talk format gives authors of papers an opportunity to provide a detailed overview of a research project or curricular innovation. Approximately six papers will be grouped thematically in technical sessions lasting 90 minutes giving each work about 10 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for Q&A.
2) Postcard Sessions are a novel session type designed to report important innovations and current research efforts and open conversations. The postcard format gives authors of papers the opportunity to pitch their work with a two-slide (postcard back and front) overview of their work in five minutes or less. After the pitch is made, attendees will have the opportunity to talk with the authors and revisit their postcards while authors receive project feedback from interested viewers. Approximately 8 papers are grouped thematically in Postcard sessions.
3) Poster Session will occur over lunch during the division’s poster session in the convention hall. The poster session format gives authors a large format venue to present research and course innovations in a public setting. Authors are expected to stand near their poster for the entire session to engage with poster session attendees.
All DEED papers will be placed in either a podium session or a postcard poster session by default with preference to the podium session slots being given to full papers and preference for postcard poster session slots begin given to Work-in-Progress papers. Authors may optionally select to present in the Poster Session by contacting the Program Chair and requesting placement in a Poster Session. Any accepted paper may be assigned to either a Podium or Postcard Session (even when the paper is not a “Work in Progress”).
Publish to Present and Review to Publish Criteria
In addition to the ASEE “Publish to Present” requirements, DEED requires the support of its authors in “Review to Publish” at both the abstract and manuscript stages. Abstracts for review will be assigned October 18 and are due no later than October 28. Blind manuscript reviews will be assigned February 7 and are due no later than February 24.
Workshop, Panel and Special Sessions
DEED accepts proposals for sessions in the areas listed for paper submissions. An individual abstract for these sessions is required. Persons wishing to organize a DEED session should (1) contact the Program Chair via email to describe their intent to submit a session proposal AND (2) submit a paper abstract in Monolith providing the following: description of the topic of the session, format for the session, and proposed panelists. DEED officers and directors will review the submissions for appropriate content and (if required) recommend the session to ASEE. To be considered, proposals must be submitted before paper abstract submission deadline (October 14, 2019).
1) Workshop Sessions may be proposed in the areas listed for paper submissions. The abstract must include the following: workshop title, objective, description, speakers/facilitators, estimated head count, and whether or not this workshop was similar to a prior ASEE workshop including the name of the prior workshop as this is the information required by the online form in Monolith. Workshops submitted directly on the ASEE site, prior to DEED approval, will not be recommended to conference organizers for inclusion.
2) Panel and Special Sessions may be proposed in the areas listed for paper submissions. These sessions differ from organized sessions in that they are not publish to present; however, an individual abstract for the panel session is required. The abstract must include the following: description of the topic of the panel, format for the panel session, and proposed panelists.

Papers: Both abstracts and draft papers are reviewed using a double-blind process. Submissions of both abstracts and draft papers are not to include any identifying information regarding authorship or institutional affiliation; failure to comply with this directive may result in the rejection of the submission. Please refer to the Author’s Kit, also available at the ASEE Annual Conference web site, for a copy of the official Abstract and Paper Format Guidelines. All submissions are expected to adhere to these specified formatting requirements. Please note that abstract acceptance does not guarantee paper acceptance.
It is important to note that the Mechanical Engineering Division is a “publish-and-review-to-present” division: to present at the conference, you must have your paper accepted for publication in the Proceedings and have at least one author available to participate in the peer review process for both abstract and draft paper submissions.
The ME division sponsors a Best Paper award consisting of a plaque and cash prize, and a Best Poster/Postcard award consisting of a cash prize. The division also issues official certificates in recognition of papers nominated for the Best Paper award. The ME Division also sponsors the Ralph Coats Roe Award for excellence in engineering education as well as the Outstanding New Mechanical Engineering Educator Award for exceptional individuals early in their engineering education career.
Work-in-Progress Papers (for poster/postcard sessions): These papers often present work that is still in the process of study and/or implementation where results will not be available by the time of draft paper submissions, where the results are as yet inconclusive or where authors are seeking feedback from the community. All Work-in-Progress papers accepted for publication will be assigned to either:
1. a poster session, or
2. a postcard session to allow their authors opportunity for extended conversations regarding their research.
Postcard sessions are a special-format session allowing authors to pitch their work with a two-slide overview of their work in five minutes or less, followed by extended time in session for discussion with and feedback from the attendees. If you desire that your submission be considered for a poster or postcard session, please note this.
Questions: Please direct any questions to the Program Chair: Tom DeNucci, U.S. Coast Guard Academy, email@example.com or to the Division Chair: Matt Gordon, University of Denver, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The ASEE Mechanics Division solicits papers for the Annual Conference & Exposition to be held in Montréal, Canada, June 21-24, 2020. Areas of interest include theory, practice, assessment, in all areas of engineering mechanics education, ranging from the foundational courses Statics, Dynamics, Mechanics of Materials, and Fluid Mechanics, to advanced-level topics such as Finite Element Analysis, Fracture Mechanics, Vibrations, and Acoustics. Suggested topics, as they pertain to mechanics education, include, but are not limited to:
¥ Projects, laboratories, experiments, or demonstrations
¥ Assessment of teaching and learning
¥ Horizontal or vertical curricular integration of mechanics
¥ Development and deployment of innovative teaching methods or practices
¥ Integration of emerging topics and/or implementation of best practices
Abstracts should be approximately 500 words in length and provide a clear statement of the objective, relevance to mechanics education, assessment methods, and results. Authors of accepted abstracts will be required to prepare a full paper for peer review prior to publication in the conference proceedings. To be successful a paper must demonstrate an appropriate level of scholarship. The division strongly encourages that authors conduct meaningful assessment of outcomes and report on the results of this assessment. Papers which provide no assessment should be marked as “Work-in progress” in Monolith upon submission.
Papers accepted for publication must be presented by at least one registered conference participant in a designated technical session or at a poster session held in the Exhibit Hall, as designated at the time of final submission. Potential exists for joint sessions with the Mechanical and Civil Engineering Divisions should sufficient cross-over occur to justify these sessions.
In addition, the Division will sponsor its annual Classroom Demonstrations Session, which will feature presentations by mechanics instructors of some of the toys and demonstrations that they use to illustrate concepts and energize their classes. Presenters will be asked to upload documentation of their demonstrations to the Division’s Hands-On Mechanics website (http://www.handsonmechanics.org/). Proposals for demonstrations should include a brief description of the classroom demonstration and how it will be presented at the conference; these are not submitted as papers via Monolith, but rather by direct communication with the Division Program Chair by the Draft Paper deadline that occurs approximately in April prior to the conference.
Submission deadlines are announced at the ASEE website:
Important Paper Deadlines 2020 (https://www.asee.org/annual-conference/2020/paper-management/important-deadlines)

The Systems Engineering Division (SED) promotes education in systems thinking, systems engineering, and systems science at all levels of education, and for different delivery modes including distance education, hybrid, and traditional classroom delivery. SED invites abstracts for papers and proposals for an array of sessions including technical sessions, tutorial/workshops, panel discussions, and distinguished speakers.
This year the SED is excited to offer three special formats/topics:
1) 5-Minute Work-In-Progress Session: This special format session gives authors of Work-in-Progress (WIP) papers the opportunity to pitch their work with a two-slide (back and front of a postcard) overview of their work in five minutes or less. After all pitches are made, attendees will have the opportunity to visit with and give feedback to the authors.
2) Arts and Engineering: This session will include papers on partnerships with non-traditional disciplines/domains to improve systems engineering education.
3) Vision for Systems Engineering Education in 2030: Unlike other engineering disciplines, systems engineering programs have not settled on a common curriculum. This session includes papers that imagine what systems engineering curriculum will look like in a decade’s time.
In addition to the three special sessions, SED is looking for submissions that address one or more aspects of systems engineering (SE) education, including but not limited to:
• Systems thinking approaches taught in non-SE courses
• Curricular strategies, advancements, and lessons learned to foster SE integration
• Collaborative educational efforts and initiatives with industry or government partners
• Diversity, equity, and inclusion in SE education
• Incorporating real-world SE challenges in the classroom
• Integration of SE education across other engineering and non-engineering disciplines/domains
• P-12 SE education and educational outreach
• Implications of ABET EAC changes to teaching SE
• SE assessment methods, competency development, and certification
• Use of SE modeling, simulation, methods, and tools in the classroom
Submissions are welcome from any discipline that leverages SE principles either to develop curriculum or as part of the curriculum. All paper submissions are publish-to-present. Submission may include classroom applications, exploratory topics, research reports, and works in progress. Abstracts shall be 250-350 words in length.

Other topics might include workplace climate, university programs, policies, and reports on initiatives. Transformative research that informs the development of impactful and forward-thinking programs and policies also are of high relevance. Popular sessions at recent conferences have included panels focused on a variety of topics, including improving the experience of marginalized students on engineering design teams, advocacy for gender equity, listening and negotiation, interactive theater to promote difficult dialogues about inequities in engineering education, managing dual careers, work/life integration issues, care for family members, and academic leadership strategies. If you have ideas for panels and/or would be willing to help organize a panel, please contact the program chair. Panels that can be co-sponsored with other divisions are strongly encouraged.
Authors should submit an abstract of 300 words or less on their paper topic. All ASEE divisions are publish to present. Authors of accepted abstracts must submit a full paper for review and acceptance in order to be included in the WIED program at the conference and in the conference proceedings. Panels must also submit an abstract and may optionally submit a full paper. Please note that there are two levels of review: first a review of the abstract, then a review of the submitted paper (submission deadline is March 16, 2020). The review processes are double blind – therefore please do not include names of authors or institutions within the title or body of the abstract or paper. The final paper with blind indicators removed is due April 27, 2020. The author’s kit is found here: https://www.asee.org/annual-conference/2020/paper-management/for-authors
