3rd Information Systems Education & Curricula Workshop (ISEC'14)

Warsaw, Poland, 7 - 10 September, 2014



ISEC goal is to promote the discussion about the convergence between Computer Science and Information Systems topics, so that researchers can present a complete and detailed specification of their educational curricula by means of these two topics. We inspect papers that contribute to the better understanding of emerging and important educational fields of Computer Science (CS) and Information Systems (IS). Authors are invited to submit their papers in English, presenting the results of original research or innovative practical applications in the field.

Regarding the selection process, we plan to perform a triple review process.


Key issues in this workshop will focus on (but are not limited to):

  • Convergence between IS & CS in higher Education
  • Specification of IS Education Curricula
  • General IS Theory
  • IS Scope
  • IS Educational Fields
  • Student participation in research
  • Adaptation to the European Higher Education
  • Assessment of students
  • Innovative teaching methods
  • Training for career and skills development
  • Definition of “knowledge” in IS
  • Quality and evaluation of teaching
  • Social and environmental commitment
  • Curriculum organization and curriculum
  • The Fundamental Concepts Underpinning IS
  • Merge from IS to CS and vice versa in higher Education
