UPCOMING ENGINEERING CONFERENCES

 

The 5th IEEE Integrated STEM Education Conference (ISEC ’15)

7 March, 2015
Friend Center at Princeton University
Princeton, NJ

Submissions for the 5th IEEE Integrated STEM Education Conference (ISEC ’15) are being accepted through 11:59 pm EST Sunday, November 30, 2014.  The submission link is provided on the conference's home and author information pages, which can be found at http://ewh.ieee.org/conf/stem.  Alternatively, you can access the submission site at http://edas.info/N18323.  Please note that you will need to register with EDAS before submitting your paper or poster if you are a first-time user.

Your work must not have been published or submitted for publication elsewhere.  Your submission will be one of the following:  a full paper (4 - 6 pages) or posters by K-12 students (may include a paper of 1 - 3 pages for inclusion in the proceedings).

This year’s theme is Creating a Culture of Achievement.  While all papers on methods of and experience with integrating education (or interdisciplinary education) in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) studies are welcome, we are very interested in papers on STEaM initiatives that have resulted in improved student performance in STEM studies, especially among students from underrepresented populations in the disciplines.

Acceptances will be sent no later than Sunday, January 4, 2015. Information on student travel awards and conference housing will be available by that date as well.  The conference hotel is the Westin Princeton at Forrestal Village, a short drive from the Friend Center.  The conference room rate, good for Friday, March 6 and Saturday, March 7, 2015, is $109/night.

We are very pleased to announce that Christine M. Cunningham, PhD, founder and director of Engineering is Elementary (Boston Museum of Science) and a Fellow of ASEE; and Sonpreet Bhatia, co-founder and CP&TO of MobileROI will be our keynote speakers.  Christine's topic is Everyone Can Engineer: Why All Kids Should Study Engineering – Even Before They Can Spell It!, and Sonpreet will be discussing the payoffs coming from investing in STEM studies. A special IEEE Educational Activities Board presentation will be given by Saurabh Sinha, Ph.D., VP of the EAB and Executive Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment, University of Johannesburg.  We will also feature a Town Hall Session:  an “all hands” session (UnConference) where YOU drive the content!  And the best paper award, now named in memory of H. Robert Schroeder, a founder of the IEEE Education Society's Princeton / Central Jersey Chapter, returns for its third year.

Registration fees and general conference information may also be found at http://ewh.ieee.org/conf/stem.

Special Track “IT and Engineering Pedagogy” (ITEP’15) 

18-20 March, 2015
Tallinn University of Technology, Tallinn, Estonia

 Carrying on the previous objectives of ITEP Special Tracks @ EDUCON Conferences, ITEP’15 @ EDUCON 2015 aims to offer an open discussion and a reflection in the use of Information Technologies in Engineering Education and their appropriate Pedagogy. It also intends to foster the involvement in continuing education, bridging the gap between higher education and learning on the workplace by focusing the IT use in lifelong learning and training. At K-12 level this session intends to evaluate the progress of IT in fostering the engagement of younger people in the field of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). 

At any level it is important to evaluate the IT power in facilitating the collaborative work everywhere. 

Finally, it is relevant to consider the IT potentiality in improving engineering education conditions in developing countries and for those people with special needs. 

The topics include (but are not limited to): 

IT and Pedagogy
Computers & Engineering Education
Online Tools to Engage Students
Tools for Higher Order Thinking Skills
Multimedia for Education
Mobile Devices in Education
Online Labs
Haptic Devices
Serious Games
Virtual and Augmented reality tools
Intelligent Tutoring Systems
Technological Innovation, Product Innovation and Industrial Innovation
IT and Education tools for People with Special Needs
IT in K-12 Education
Sharing resources with developing countries

University of British Columbia,
Vancouver, BC

Call for Abstract Submissions to EESD15

Submission Date Extended to Oct 13, 2014

About the EESD’15 Conference

The 7th International Conference on Engineering Education for Sustainable Development (EESD15) will explore current and future ways of thinking in the emerging field of EESD and will celebrate the ground-breaking work accomplishing in EESD since 2002.  The conference will be held from June 9-12, 2015 at the University of British Columbia’s (UBC) Point Grey campus, overlooking beautiful Howe Sound in Vancouver, Canada.

EESD15 is the premier forum for contributing to, and learning about, engineering education for sustainable development.

Invitation for Abstract Submissions
