The 46th Annual Frontiers in Education (FIE) Conference is a major international conference focusing on educational innovations and research in engineering and computing education. We welcome submissions related to educational issues in electrical and computer engineering, energy engineering, software engineering, computing and informatics, engineering design, and in other engineering disciplines. FIE 2016 continues a long tradition of disseminating results in these areas. It is an ideal forum for sharing ideas, learning about developments and interacting with colleagues in these fields.
