  • Papers on research on, methods of, and experience with integrating education (or interdisciplinary education) in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) studies are the core of the conference program. Your paper submission(s) will be one (or both) of the following:
    • a work in progress (WIP; preliminary or initial stage of research/investigation) paper of 2 - 4 pages
    • a full paper of 5-8 pages
  • There is no preliminary abstract phase for WIP or full papers. Please adhere to these page limits within the conference's template structure. Papers that do not follow the template will be returned for reformatting.
  • Posters by K-12 students may feature student STEaM research or experiences. Submit an abstract describing the content of your poster (max 500 words) for review to EDAS. Once their poster abstract is accepted, students then have the option of submitting an additional short paper for review by 18 February 2020. This paper is NOT required.
  • Workshop proposals should provide the title, topic, focus, proposed activities, and a short statement of presenter expertise in an abstract of no more than 750 words. There are no papers associated with a workshop. Workshops are typically scheduled for 90 minutes.
  • All proposals, abstracts, and papers are submitted via EDAS.info. For full and work-in-progress papers, post the Word document (no LaTEX, please) along with the author and abstract information. For posters and workshops, no separate document is needed; the information requested by EDAS, including the abstract, is sufficient. Templates are available on the Author Information page on the conference website. Please do not use the templates on ieee.org.
  • All accepted submissions will be scheduled for presentation at the conference and included in the local conference proceedings. Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore. Workshop documents will not be submitted to Xplore.
