The World Conference on Computers in Education (WCCE 2017), organised by the International Federation for Information Processing and hosted by the Irish Computer Society, will take place in Dublin on 3rd-6th July 2017, with a doctoral consortium on 2nd July.
Welcome from the Chair of the International Programme Committee
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the World Conference on Computers in Education 2017 (WCCE 2017), to be held in Dublin, Ireland, 3rd – 6th July 2017. On behalf of the International Programme Committee (IPC), we ask you to join us for this significant conference. I am delighted that we are being hosted in the heart of Dublin by the Irish Computer Society, who have supported and been responsible for particularly important developments in this field.
The conference theme, “Tomorrow’s Learning: Involving Everyone”, reflects the long-standing commitment to both learning and technology that has concerned members of the Technical Committee 3 (TC3) and its working groups of the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP). Joining existing members of this internationally-recognised federation, we invite you to this conference, providing opportunity for us to continue that commitment and concern. We ask you, the researchers, policy makers, developers, teachers, and learners, to come together to share and discuss the current and the future, and how we will continue progress in the development and uses of technologies and computing for the benefit of all.
I know that Ireland sees innovation and learning as essential to its future. With three universities rated in the top 50 in the world, together with a wealth of technology companies in the area, it is fitting that Ireland hosts this conference. On behalf of the IPC, we very much look forward to meeting you in one of the most vibrant and cultural capitals of the world.
