Guidelines for submission of Papers:

Original papers from the above mentioned topics or related areas will be considered. This includes three categories of submissions:1) original and unpublished research 2)reports of innovative computing applications in education 3) reports of successful technology transfer to new problem domains.

Each submitted paper will be fully refereed and undergo a blind review process by at least three referees. The accepted papers in all categories will be published in the ACM Press SAC ’00 proceedings. Submission guidelines should be strictly followed.

  1. Submit six copies of original manuscripts to the SAC’00 Computer Uses in Education at the address of the Track Chair mentioned above.
  2. The author(s) name(s) and address(es) must not appear in the body of the paper, and self reference should be in the third person. This is to facilitate blind review.
