The 9th edition of the New Perspectives in Science Education Conference will take place in Florence, Italy, on 19–20 March 2020.
The objective of the Conference is to promote transnational cooperation and share good practice in the field of innovation for science education. In particular, spotlight will be given to educational strategies, assessment, professional development, and students’ motivation. The main research fields are mathematics, chemistry, physics, environment, biomedics, robotics and engineering, and STEM.
The New Perspectives in Science Education Conference is also an excellent opportunity for the presentation of previous and current projects in the science field. Teachers, researchers, practitioners and project managers from all over the world are invited to take part in the Conference.
Authors willing to submit an abstract should send an email to Pixel, at [email protected], attaching the abstract written using the provided template available at https://conference.pixel-online.net/NPSE/templates.php, or create a new account on the conference website homepage, uploading their abstract by following the guidelines provided. The abstract’s official language is English, its length must not exceed 450 words, and keywords and references must be included.
The abstracts and papers submitted will be peer-reviewed by the scientific committee based on originality, technical quality, and presentation. All accepted papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings published by the Italian publisher “Filodiritto Editore” with ISBN, ISSN, DOI (Digital Object Identifier) and ISPN (International Standard Proceedings Number) code by Cambridge UK International Academics.
Among the accepted papers, up to fifteen best papers will be selected, and authors will be requested to send an extended version of their articles. Authors interested in extending their conference papers must be aware that the final submitted manuscript must provide a minimum of 50% new content and not exceed 30% copy/paste from the proceedings paper.
Each paper will be blind-reviewed by MDPI academic editors. Accepted papers will be published in the “Special Issues” section at https://www.mdpi.com/journal/information/special_issues, indexed by Ei Compendex, Scopus (Elsevier), Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI—Web of Science).
