DIDINFO 2019

The International Conference
on Computer Science Education

3th – 5th April 2019 | Banská Bystrica | Slovak republic

The international conference DidInfo facilitates sharing experience and the results of educational research focused on IT and computer science education. The conference also offers the opportunity for a vocational and academic community to discuss up-to-date issues, trends, educational methods and findings. One part of the conference is dedicated to workshops as well. One of the main goals of this conference is to create a link between academic environment and teaching practice.
DidInfo is launched as a follow-up to the long-standing tradition of the Slovak conference, to which the Czech part (originally under the name DidactIG) joined later on. The organization of the conference is annually arranged alternately by KI FPV UMB and KAP FP TUL.
