February 28, 2018 – March 2nd, 2018

Brasília, Brazil


 It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in PAEE/ALE’2018, to be held at the University of Brasília (UnB), Brasília, Brazil, from February 28, 2018 to March 2nd, 2018. Accepted full papers included in the Proceedings will be indexed in SCOPUS.

The theme of this year’s conference is Advances in Engineering Education by Inclusion and Diversity, which is an excellent opportunity to discuss research and current practice under this challenging theme.

Abstract submission: Regardless of the type of submission, in a first stage, contributors are invited to submit an abstract of 300 words using the web submission platform: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=paeeale2018.

This event combines the 9th International Symposium on Project Approaches in Engineering Education (PAEE’2018) and the 15th Active Learning in Engineering Education Workshop (ALE’2018). The PAEE symposiumis organised by the PAEE association and the Department of Production and Systems of the University of Minho, Portugal, since 2009, and aims to join teachers, researchers and professionals concerned with Engineering Education. The ALE workshop is organised by ALE, an international network of engineering educators, initiated in 2000, and dedicated to improving engineering education through active learning.

PAEE and ALE have been organized in different parts of the world, to enhance Active Learning, Problem and Project-Based Learning in Engineering Education through active involvement of participants in hands-on sessions, workshops, debates, industry panels, poster and paper sessions, and student project awards.

We welcome student contributions to the symposium. Students who develop project work in their undergraduate or graduate engineering degrees are invited to submit papers on their learning experiences in project work. Student papers will be candidates for the best Student Paper Award.

The main language of the conference is English. Papers can also be submitted in Spanish and Portuguese only to the PAEE paper sessions.

Keynote Speakers:

  • António Nóvoa – Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal
  • Lynn Andrea Stein – Olin College of Engineering, USA
  • Jennifer DeBoer – Purdue University, USA

Important dates:

  • Abstract Submissions: 15 July to 15 August 2017
  • Paper Submissions: 15 September to 15 October 2017
  • Final Paper Submissions: 15 November to 15 December 2017

The system is already open for abstract submission, and we will keep on accepting abstracts until August 15. We intend to start the reviewing process on July 15.

All submissions are peer-reviewed and the accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings indexed on SCOPUS.
