Overview

Top Research Topics at Technical Symposium on Computer Science Education?

  • Multimedia (21.14%)
  • Mathematics education (19.70%)
  • Software engineering (17.36%)

The topics of Multimedia, Mathematics education, Software engineering, Curriculum and Session (computer science) are the focal point of discussions in the conference. Discussions in the conference are anchored in the subject of Multimedia and the similar topic of Human–computer interaction. Topics in Mathematics education were tackled in line with various other fields like Class (computer programming), Pedagogy and Course (navigation).

Topics in Software engineering explored in the conference were investigated in conjunction with research in Programming language, Software, Software development, Personal software process and Social software engineering. The event concentrated on Programming language research, specifically Java, Programming paradigm, First-generation programming language and Fifth-generation programming language. Inductive programming is a focus of the presented Programming paradigm works and it dives deep in Inductive programming.

The Software development works, particularly on Software construction are tackled in it. Social software engineering and Software Engineering Process Group are closely related fields of research discussed in the event. It is mostly focused on Curriculum, specifically Computer science curriculum.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • A study of the difficulties of novice programmers (582 citations)
  • A multi-national, multi-institutional study of assessment of programming skills of first-year CS students (545 citations)
  • Exploring the role of visualization and engagement in computer science education (529 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at Technical Symposium on Computer Science Education:

The conference papers are mainly concerned with subjects like Mathematics education, Multimedia, Software engineering, Curriculum and Pedagogy. The conference publications focus on Mathematics education but the discussions also offer insight into other areas such as Class (computer programming), Simulation and Knowledge management. The most cited articles explore issues in Software engineering which can be linked to other research areas like Java, Programming language, Software, Software development and First-generation programming language.

What topics the last edition of the conference is best known for?

  • Law
  • Operating system
  • Artificial intelligence

The previous edition focused in particular on these issues:

The conference focuses on Mathematics education, Curriculum, Class (computer programming), Professional development and Public relations. In addition to Mathematics education research, the conference aims to explore topics under Code (semiotics), Context (language use) and Coding (social sciences).

The most cited articles from the last conference are:

  • Integrating Ethics into Introductory Programming Classes (6 citations)
  • Autograding "Explain in Plain English" questions using NLP (5 citations)
  • Investigating the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Computing Students' Sense of Belonging (5 citations)

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2021 edition, 3.91% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 22.39% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 12.72% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 13.74% of all publications and 51.15% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

Returning Institution Index

The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
