The 2016 Workshop on the Impact of Pen and Touch Technology in Education (WIPTTE) seeks papers that report on the impact of pen and touch interfaces across education settings, including both formal and informal learning environments. WIPTTE 2016 will take place on March 31 - April 2, 2016 at Brown University in Providence, RI, USA.  WIPTTE is an independent research conference whose past sponsors have included Intel, Toshiba, Fujitsu, DyKnow, PDF Annotator, Wacom, and last year’s host Microsoft. In addition to original research papers, it features hands-on You-Try-It sessions, keynotes, and posters. Revised proceedings papers have been published (and for 2015 are contracted for publication) as books. Relevant work recently published elsewhere can also be submitted for presentation although not inclusion in the proceedings.


In the past few years, pen and touch enabled tablet computers have been changing the face of education. Since 2006, The Workshop on the Impact of Pen and Touch Technology in Education (WIPTTE) has been part of making this revolution happen by bringing together educators and students, researchers, developers, manufacturers and decision makers to look at and experience the current and coming state of the art around these technologies. WIPTTE is unique in bringing such a diverse group together to interact and share research, experiences tools, lessons learned and ideas for future directions.

Join us at Brown University in Providence, RI for the tenth annual WIPTTE conference March 31 - April 2, 2016.



Pen, touch, and tablets are changing the face of education. Be part of the revolution!

The Workshop on the Impact of Pen and Touch Technology in Education (WIPTTE) convenes users, researchers, developers, decision makers, students, and teachers to share and to drive exciting progress in the use of pen and touch technology in the future of education.

WIPTTE's first annual conference took place in 2006 at Purdue University. It has since been hosted in several other locations, including Virginia Tech, Pepperdine, Texas A&M University, the Microsoft Campus in Redmond, WA, and this year, at Brown University in Providence, RI. Each conference brings approximately 150 participants from industry, academia (including researchers, developers, and users), K-12 teachers, and junior/high school students together to share their tools, experiences, ideas, and innovative research.
