LaTiCE - International conferences on Learning and Teaching in Computing and Engineering

UpCERG organises the annual International Conference on Learning and Teaching in Computing and Engineering (LaTiCE). The aim is to create a platform towards sharing rigorous research and current practices being conducted in computing and engineering education and to foster the creating of computing education communities and future generations of computing and engineering professionals and researchers.

The conference is jointly organized with host universities and is technically co-sponsored by the Special Technical Community for Education Research (STC Education), which is an IEEE Computer Society initiative to connect those interested in all forms of educational research and pedagogy in the field of computing and engineering. The proceedings are available in the IEEE Explore.

Three conferences have been held in Macau (2013), Malaysia (2014), and Taiwan (2015). The fourth conference in the series will take place in India in 2016.


The LaTiCE conference in India is organized by the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IITB) and will take place from April 1st to April 3rd, 2016. The conference is a gathering for presentations of research papers, practice sharing papers, work-in- process papers, and display of posters and demos. A doctoral consortium precedes the conference on March 31st, 2016.

The first LaTiCE conference was held in 2013 in Macau, at the University of Saint Joseph (USJ). The conference received a total of 84 scholarly contributions and eight applications to participate in the Doctoral Consortium (a forum for PhD students in the field to discuss their work with senior researchers attending the conference). After rigorous double blind review of the scholarly submissions 40 of the 84 original submissions were selected for inclusion in the conference proceedings. This represents an overall acceptance rate of 48% for the conference.
