- The Australasian Computing Education Conference is now in its eleventh year. This paper charts the ups and downs of the conference from its origin in 1996, through its troubled years, to its recent apparently steady state. All 328 papers from the ten conferences are classified according to Simon's system for classifying computing education papers, and features of interest are pointed out. Only one clear trend over time is observed, and that is a steady and distinct increase in the proportion of research papers. The analysis then moves from the papers to their 496 distinct authors, exploring where the authors come from, how many papers each has contributed to the conference, and which authors appear to have made this conference their home. A final look at the number of papers presented each year suggests that the conference might once more be experiencing difficulty, and speculates on its future.
