The workshop is intended to bring together educators interested and involved in the use of project work for teaching Computer Science and Software Engineering in Universities.
It is being organised by the Universities of Kent, Sheffield and Teesside and is based around the FDTL projects in Computer Science involving these universities. Others interested in issues associated with project work in Computer science are invited to attend and to contribute papers.
Some of the issues to be discussed include:
Papers are sought relating to these subjects. Submissions will be referreed by the programme committee and the conference proceedings will be published.
Papers (not to exceed 12 pages) should be submitted to the local organisers either by post or e-mail by January 30th.These will be refereed by the programme committee.
Posters (not to exceed 4 pages) may also be submitted by February 27th.
Posters may be submitted by staff or students. It is hoped that a prize will be awarded for the best student poster.
The papers and a selection of the posters will be published in the conference proceedings.
There will be demonstrations of deliverables from some of the FDTL projects. Resources including reports, booklets, videos, and CD-ROMs developed by the projects will also be distributed to participants.
