The 8th CCSC Southwest Region Conference

March 27-28, 2015

What is exactly is a Lightning Talk? Lightning Talks are short, 2 to 3 minute presentations intended to spark discussion among conference participants.

Potential benefits of giving a Lightning Talk include:

  • sharing a teaching strategy,
  • presenting preliminary results from a project,
  • getting feedback on a new idea for an empirical CS ed project,
  • getting a critique of a research design or data-gathering strategy,
  • showcasing a tool or technique that hasn't been fully tested,
  • finding collaborators at other institutions, and
  • inspiring good conversations about CS education

Interested presenters should submit a title and one paragraph description of their topic to Cynthia Lee at no later than February 1st (UPDATED) February 8th for consideration.

If you have any questions regarding the paper submission and reviewing, please contact our Lightning Talks chair: Cynthia Lee at
