Call for Papers

The 6th IEEE International Conference on Teaching, Assessment,

and Learning for Engineering (TALE2017)

(Co-organized by The IEEE Education Society and The Education University of Hong Kong, Sponsored by IEEE Hong Kong Section Education Chapter)

Theme: Innovative Engineering Education for Smarter World

12-14 December 2017

The Education University of Hong Kong, Tai Po, Hong Kong


IEEE International Conference on Teaching, Assessment, and Learning for Engineering (TALE) is held each year in the Asia-Pacific region (IEEE Region 10). It is intended to complement existing conferences sponsored by the IEEE Education Society, most notably Frontiers in Education in North America (IEEE Regions 1–7) and EDUCON in Europe/Middle East/Africa (IEEE Region 8). The aim of TALE is to provide an excellent platform for both academicians and practitioners to share their experience and knowledge in engineering education at all levels. Both research and practice-oriented papers are welcome in order to emphasize the needs of interdisciplinary collaboration in engineering and education.



The aim of TALE 2017 is to provide a forum for academicians and professionals from various educational fields and with cross-disciplinary interests to network, share knowledge and engage in dialogue around the theme of fostering innovation and excellence in engineering education. To this end, papers from innovative practice category, research-to-practice category, and research category are invited that encompass all aspects of education in all engineering fields (including computing, computer science, information technology and cognate disciplines). The conference features traditional paper presentations, workshops, as well as keynotes by renowned educational experts and authorities.
