ALLS participated in The Computing Society of the Philippines’s 2nd Information and Computing Education Conference (ICE 2019) last October 3-5, 2019. The Special Interest Group in Information and Computing Education of CSP (CSP-SpICE) in cooperation with the Computer Studies cluster of the Ateneo de Davao University organized this three (3) day conference to provide a relevant platform for information and computing professionals, teachers, graduate school and undergraduate students, and researchers alike to interact and share their expertise and research work in computing, computer science, computer engineering, computational science, information science, information technology and computing education. The event also featured special lectures from prominent researchers and educators in the ICT field as well as peer-reviewed research papers on computing and ICT. The aforementioned special lectures were presented by ALLS alumni, namely Michelle Banawan, Cristina Dumdumaya, May Marie Talandron-Felipe, and Maureen Villamor.
The ALLS’ papers were all nominated for Best Paper for this year’s conference and all presenters were featured during the Plenary Session. The papers featured are as follows:
A Method for Automatically Estimating Areas of Interest Boundaries for Text Areas by Ezekiel Adriel Lagmay and Ma. Mercedes Rodrigo
Exploring the Relationship between Self-efficacy and In-game Behavior within Crystal Island by Arnel Ocay and Ma. Mercedes Rodrigo
Development and Testing of a Mobile Game for Arithmetic Using a Reusable Framework of Mobile-Based Drills by Ma. Mercedes Rodrigo, Dominique Marie Manahan, Johanna Marion Torres, Kevin Arnel Mora, Jose Isidro Beraquit and Jenilyn Agapito
After much deliberation, Ezekiel Adriel Lagmay and Ma. Mercedes Rodrigo’s paper entitled A Method for Automatically Estimating Areas of Interest Boundaries for Text Areas was awarded as the Best Paper for this year’s Information and Computing Education Conference.
ALLS would like to thank The Special Interest Group in Information and Computing Education of CSP (CSP-SpICE) for this event and we hope to produce more relevant research papers in order to contribute to this community.
