The ICCE is the annual conference of the Asia Pacific Society for Computers in Education, an organization composed of academics and researchers who are committed to the creation and study of technologies to support teaching and learning.  Now on its 25th year, ICCE gathers contributions on a wide variety of education-related themes: artificial intelligence in education, digital toy, and game-enhanced learning, computer-supported collaborative work, and others. Papers undergo peer review by at least three reviewers and a meta-review. This year’s full paper acceptance rate was 23%.

The Ateneo de Manila University will be hosting ICCE in November 2018.
