SCOPE
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Informatics as a subject discipline in universities has seen considerable
turbulence within the last ten years and indeed it is unlikely that any
other subject discipline has been subjected to such extremes in demand
over such a short period.

Following the course of the first very successful Informatics Education
Europe conference in Montpellier, the IEEII conference in 2007 will take
place in Thessaloniki. IEEII aims to bring together Informatics Educators
across Europe and to provide a forum for sharing experience, innovative
ideas and identifying common issues to be addressed within Europe.

IEEII will include all the thematic areas of the previous conference but
it will also focus on "Developments in South-East and East Europe" as its
main theme. Despite the significant developments in East and South-East
European countries in recent years, including the changes in their
technological infrastructure and the emergence of competitive software
companies, academic staff in the region have not always responded
efficiently. The conference will investigate the reasons for this, address
problems common among educators related to the development, improvement,
delivery and evaluation of Informatics curricula and provide an
opportunity for sharing experiences and best practice examples from all
over Europe.

We believe the conference will be of interest to all involved in
Informatics Education in Europe, from the lecturer teaching daily and
whose interest may be in the pedagogy to the Heads of Department and Deans
who shape policy and curriculum within their Universities.
