“The Call for Participation for the 2016 ACM Richard Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing Conference is now open. Over 1,000 attendees are expected to attend the conference on September 14-17, 2016 in Austin, TX.
The Tapia conference has always been a premier venue to acknowledge, to promote and to celebrate diversity. Given the current global academic, professional and societal climates, the Tapia 2016 conference theme, “Diversity Matters!”, recognizes the Tapia Conference’s commitment to diversity in all its wonderful forms.
We target a program comprised of an array of technical, professional and personal enrichment and development opportunities. And, of course, the Tapia conference offers the unique opportunity to engage in large and small group discussions about diversity and broadening participation. Anticipating a well-balanced program for academic, research and industrial interests, we invite you to submit your content to the appropriate sub-program: Birds of a Feather, Doctoral Consortium, Posters, Panels and Workshops. All submissions for the Tapia 2016 Conference are due by Monday, November 23, 2016.”
