WIPTE 2010 prizes announced, more time to enter



In case you needed more incentive or time to submit an entry for the 2010 Workshop on the Impact of Pen-Based Technology on Education (WIPTE), the organization has announced that winning entrants will receive accommodations for two nights at the conference. Better yet, the best full paper submission will earn a Fujitsu Tablet PC. Model not mentioned, but Fujitsu only offers premium Tablet PCs, so it’s well worth the effort.

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.  Due to new vendor support the WIPTE committee is pleased to announce prizes for several submission categories. A Fujitsu Tablet PC will be awarded to the best full paper submission (based on the quality of the written submission and the oral presentation at the conference). In addition, a number of scholarships will be awarded for outstanding paper, poster, or presentation submissions from K12 educators. Each scholarship will cover two nights of accommodations at the conference.

Because of these new prizes the organizing committee has extended the submission deadlines for full papers, posters, and presentations until June 30, 2010.

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

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.

Online conference registration is available at The early bird registration fee is $100. After September 30th, 2010 the registration fee is $150.  The registration includes a reception, a dinner, a copy of the conference proceedings, and the opportunity to win a variety of raffle prizes. Last year’s prizes included Tablet PCs and smart phones.
