FabLearn Europe / MakeEd – an international conference on Computing, Design and Making in Education – invites submissions for the fifth conference in series in Europe to be held June 19, 2020 at the Creative Computing Institute, University of the Arts, London, UK. The one-day conference brings together international researchers, educators, designers, and makers to discuss and explore digital design and making/digital fabrication in different educational contexts, and hands-on learning for the 21st Century. FabLearn Europe / MakeEd is organised as a sister conference to the global FabLearn conference that has been held over the past years at Stanford University, USA. MakeEd is the academic part of FabLearn Europe. 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 6 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/), and the fourth one by INTERACT Research Unit in University of Oulu in 2019 (http://fablearn.eu/2019/)
