The Conventicle is a one-day conference that aims to support academics who are researching and teaching in the computer science and information technology disciplines, or who are using computer technology in their teaching. It provides an opportunity for sharing of ideas and innovations; for discussion of research directions; and for development of collaborations.
National Student Engagement Forums, hosted by ACER and LH Martin, focus on innovative and effective ways to engage tertiary students. The forums are being held in Melbourne on Monday October 21, Sydney on Wednesday October 23, and Brisbane on Friday October 25.

International Conference on Advanced ICT for Education 2013
The 2013 International Conference on Advanced ICT(Information and Communication Technology) for Education (ICAICTE2013), which will be held on September 20-22, 2013 in Hainan, China. Hainan is an island in the South of China. Hainan is China’s version of Hawaii and it is becoming more popular with international tourists as well. Residents from many countries, including the US and Canada, can visit the island without a visa.
The ICAICTE2013 focuses on using ICT in education which includes practice, technology and theory. Since ancient times, research in education has never been discontinued. In particular, with the emergence of ICT which evolve very quickly, so has the changes in the research of education (e.g. theory and practice which go with these evolving technologies).
The IADIS e-Learning 2013 conference aims to address the main issues of concern within e-Learning. This conference covers both technical as well as the non-technical aspects of e-Learning.
The conference accepts submissions in the following seven main areas: Organisational Strategy and Management Issues; Technological Issues; e-Learning Curriculum Development Issues; Instructional Design Issues; e-Learning Delivery Issues; e-Learning Research Methods and Approaches; e-Skills and Information Literacy for Learning.
ICT Role for Next Generation Universities
EUNIS Congresses are international events that attract a large audience from Higher Education Institutions (HEI). They represent an opportunity for sharing of experience amongst international specialists, users, researchers, decision-makers, and teaching staff from all over Europe. Moreover, it is a very good event to present and publish the latest results of research, development, and deployment of Information Technology in HEIs.
Established in 1986, ASWEC is a leading technical forum for the exchange of peer-reviewed research outcomes and industry best-practice in software engineering. It attracts a wide range of participants including software engineering researchers, practitioners and educators for across Australia, its regional neighbours, and from other international locations. The overall programme will provide numerous opportunities for academic and industry participants to interact with and learn from each other.
This Webinar is part of a series of free events covering a range of e-assessment topics. Further information on this and future events, recordings of past events, further project information and participation/technical help on using the virtual classroom system can be found at http://www.transformingassessment.com These free webinars are supported by RMIT University and The Teaching and Educational Development Institute, University of Queensland.

The Australasian Computing Education Conference (ACE) is a conference on research and innovation in computing education in its various aspects, at all levels and in all contexts.
ACE is the only Australasian conference devoted entirely to education in Computing.
ACE is held in conjunction with Australasian Computer Science Week (ACSW). ACSW arranges the venues and registrations for all ACSW conferences.
The Conventicle is an opportunity to meet with and share ideas and practice with fellow IT/CSE academics with an interest in education. The word “Conventicle” reflects the sharing and friendly nature of the gathering in contrast, for instance, with a more information delivery style “Symposium”.
Traditionally SRITEC has been a chance for those with papers accepted at ACE to give their presentations a dry run, and for those not able to attend ACE to learn about what is happening in IT/CSE teaching and learning the Sydney region. If you are presenting at ACE and would like to speak at SRITEC please contact us with an outline of your proposed talk and the already accepted paper. Additionally we welcome sessions from those who have interesting results or innovations to share. Currently we have tentative sessions on Augmented reality in education, gamification and motivation, e-portfolios and graduate attributes.
There will be a discussion on MOOCs and how the first Australian MOOC “UNSW Computing 1” is currently going. MOOCs are the first rumblings in a tsunami of change approaching the university sector worldwide so this promises to be an interesting session.
Turing Anniversary Lecture by Professor Christos H. Papadimitriou
'The Origin of Computable Numbers: A Tale of Two Classics'
Turing, like Darwin, transformed scientific and human culture through a singularly disruptive work written in a brilliantly self-conscious style. I shall recount the stories of these two classics, concluding with certain unexpected connections between computational ideas and evolution.
The lecture will also be video streamed at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/unswtv and questions will be accepted by Twitter using the hash tag #AskChristos
2012 Australasian Association for Engineering Education (AAEE) Annual Conference
The annual AAEE conference is the largest gathering of engineering educators in Australasia, bringing together delegates to discuss engineering education research and best practice.
This year‘s theme, The Profession of Engineering Education: Advancing Teaching, Research and Careers will explore opportunities for improving teaching and scholarship, rigorous research in engineering education and career advancement as an engineering educator. We have also included a focus on professional development throughout the conference, mainly in the form of Master Classes run by experts on various topics in teaching and research.
OzCHI is Australia's leading forum for work in all areas of Human-Computer Interaction and CHISIG's (www.chisig.org) annual non-profit conference (http://www.ozchi.org/). OzCHI attracts an international community of practitioners, researchers, academics and students from a wide range of disciplines including user experience designers, information architects, software engineers, human factors experts, information systems analysts, social scientists and managers. We also welcome perspectives from design, architecture engineering, planning, social science and creative industries among other disciplines.
