The Technical Symposium on Computer Science Education (SIGCSE TS) is organized by the ACM Special Interest Group on Computer Science Education (SIGCSE) and is the organization’s flagship conference. The SIGCSE Technical Symposium addresses problems common among educators working to develop, implement and/or evaluate computing programs, curricula, and courses. The symposium provides a forum for sharing new ideas for syllabi, laboratories, and other elements of teaching and pedagogy, at all levels of instruction. The symposium provides a diverse selection of technical sessions and opportunities for learning and interaction.

SIGCSE TS 2025 will be held from February 26 - March 01, 2025, at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. SIGCSE TS 2025 will be primarily an in-person conference, though there will be limited online participation options.

Hybrid Options for 2025

SIGCSE TS 2025 will continue to be a hybrid event. Some aspects of the conference will be only available to in-person attendees. However, online participants will be able to participate in:

  • Keynotes
  • A selection of panels and special sessions
  • A selection of live online paper presentations
  • A selection of online tutorials
  • Nifty Assignments
  • The legendary SIGCSE Coffee Break Show
  • The online conference communication platform

Our hope is that this will give everyone an opportunity to present their research at the 2025 SIGCSE Technical Symposium, even if they are unable to travel, and that it will provide an affordable option to enjoy some of the symposium’s content for those that can’t attend in person. The remaining aspects of SIGCSE TS 2025—including BoFs, Demos, Lightning Talks, Posters, and the ACM Student Research Competition—will be offered only in person.

Authors of accepted submissions will be required to present their work in-person at the conference, except for a limited number of papers and tutorials that are scheduled to be virtual.

Submission Information

We will be using EasyChair for SIGCSE TS 2025.

We are not requiring ACM TAPS for SIGCSE TS 2025.

We will be using the ACM two-column format for papers, posters, panels, special sessions, lightning talks, demos, and the ACM SRC. Tutorials and Birds-of-a-feather submissions will now use forms rather than PDFs. Nifty will continue to expect a zipped folder.
