The symposium

The 17th edition of the International Symposium on Computers in Education (SIIE 15) will take place in Setúbal, from 25 to 27 November 2015.

The Symposium is an international forum for presenting, discussing, reflecting and sharing of research about the use of ICT in Education.

The different SIIE editions have elapsed between Portugal and Spain and have provided an important forum for debate and reflection between researchers, institutional representatives and educators willing to share their views, knowledge and experience.

For this edition of SIIE15, there are some selected themes:

  • ICT and teachers’ professional development;

  • ICT and new approaches to the teaching/learning process;

  • Design, framing and evaluation of digital educational resources (RED);

  • Computers and learning;

  • Mobile/ubiquitous computing in education;

  • Games and Simulations in Education;

  • Educational robotics;

  • Social and learning networks;

  • Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) and distance learning.

However, these themes should not be considered exclusive. There are also accepted other relevant studies that are not included in the topics presented but can be integrated in other themes regarding the use of ICT in Education.


The Organizing Committee is currently involved in negotiations to ensure the publication of papers in other reference publications.
