SIIE 2021 Call for Papers

University of Málaga

Málaga, Spain, September 23-24, 2021

A symposium of the VI Congreso Español de Informática (CEDI 2021)

A quick update about the novelties that will take place during the next SIIE 2021, in online or face-to-face mode during the CEDI 20/21 congress:

  • Round table on computing education and computational thinking, organized by ADIE (Prof. Francisco García-Peñalvo y Prof. Ángel Velázquez Iturbide)
  • Special sessions, the first about European projects, and the second about the impact of COVID-19 in the context of computing education.
  • Doctoral consortium, to present preliminary results of PhD students in the research area of computing education.

The deadline to submit contributions to such special sessions and doctoral consortium, as well as new regular papers, has been extended until June 15th.

The International Symposium on Computers in Education (SIIE) provides an international forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest advances in research on learning technologies and their practical application in educational processes. It also aims to bring together researchers, developers, institutional representatives and teachers to share views, knowledge and experiences.

The 23rd edition of the Symposium will focus on technologies for learning analytics. The application of institutional intelligence processes and the exploitation of academic data present great opportunities to improve both the teaching/learning processes and the management of academic institutions. To take advantage of this potential requires the definition, development and evaluation of technological constructs that allow the capture, processing and visualisation of data for timely decision making.

This edition of the SIIE is held within the framework of the VI Spanish Congress on Informatics (CEDI) 20/21, postponed from 2020 to 2021 due to the Covid-19 crisis.


The Symposium calls for quality contributions presenting original work in Educational Informatics related to the topics of interest. Contributions can be written in Spanish, Portuguese or English. The title and abstract must also be written in English. The presentation of papers at the symposium may be in Spanish or English.

This edition of the Symposium will be co-located within the frame of the 6th Spanish Congress of Informatics. The congress will have a hybrid format, both face-to-face and online. All communications will be presented in a virtual format. Authors of selected papers to be presented will provide a short 10-minute video with their contribution and deliver it to the conference organization before September 10th, 2021.

All contributions must be submitted as PDF files and conform to the official IEEE Proceedings Formatting Instructions (

  • Regular contributions will be limited to a maximum of 6 pages.
  • Contributions to special sessions will have a minimum of 2 pages and a maximum of 6 pages.

All submissions should be made via the EasyChair platform through the following link (

Accepted papers will be published digitally as symposium proceedings, which will be distributed to participants prior to the symposium. Papers submitted and presented will be included in an edition of post-proceedings.

The conference proceedings will be submitted for inclusion to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library®. Papers to be submitted for inclusion to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library® must be written in English.

At the end of the symposium, the IX Edition of the "Antonio Vaquero" award will be presented to the best paper of the SIIE 2021.

The best articles will also be selected for publication in extended versions in various journals. Special issues are currently confirmed in:
