Welcome

FabLearn Europe – an international conference on Creativity and Making in Education – brings together international researchers, educators, designers, and makers to discuss and explore digital fabrication in education, making, and hands-on learning for the 21st Century. This fourth European FabLearn conference is organised by University of Oulu, INTERACT Research Unit in collaboration with University of Oulu Fab Lab. The conference will take place in Oulu, on 28-29 May 2019. Researchers and practitioners from all around the world are welcome to submit to this conference!

FabLearn Europe is associated with the global FabLearn initiative, and builds on the strong and dedicated community that has developed around the event over the past 5 years.

The first FabLearn Europe was organised by the Research Centre for Participatory IT at Aarhus University in 2014 (http://fablearn.eu/2014/) and the second Fablearn Europe was organised by the Child Computer Interaction (ChiCI) Group in 2016 (http://fablearn.eu/2016/). The third one was organised jointly by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and Aarhus University in 2018 (http://fablearn.eu/2018/).

Conference papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library in the FabLearn Europe 2019 proceedings. Extended versions of the best papers of the conference will be invited to be published in a special issue on Digital Fabrication in the Elsevier International Journal of Child-Computer Interaction.
