Got a reminder today that this year’s Workshop on the Impact of Pen-Based Technology on Education a.k.a. WIPTE is quickly approaching. Submissions are due in little more than a month. Hope to see yours there.

The 2010 Workshop on the Impact of Pen-Based Technology on Education (WIPTE) will be held on October 25th and 26th, 2010 at Virginia Tech.  The organizing committee invites submissions of full papers, posters and short presentation abstracts by June 15th. The committee also invites entries to the 2010 WIPTE Video Contest with a deadline of September 15th. The video contest carries a $3,000 first prize.

Submissions in each category should describe experiences using Tablet PCs or other pen-based technology in K-12, higher education, or other teaching and learning environments.  Full paper submissions will be peer-reviewed, other submissions will be reviewed by the organizing committee. Accepted submissions will appear in a Monograph to be published by Purdue University Press and authors will present their work at WIPTE 2010.  For detailed calls and additional information see www.wipte.org
