“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.”

CI Computer Girls hosting a Coding Boot-camp on 4/18 and 4/25

The Coding Bootcamp is a series of day-long Saturday workshops hosted by the CI Computer Girls club at Ojai Hall 1952 on 4/18 and 4/25 from 9am to 5pm where students can learn some computer programming without having had any prior experience. This event is led by current CI students and is open to all CI students. Students can sign up for 1 or 2 workshops, each designed to introduce them to fun programming concepts. We will also have speakers present who will talk about their experiences working in tech. Students will learn how to create their own webpage and make it interactive as well as use CI Keys in order to build their own space online in a dynamic and friendly environment! Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Students must register online to attend the event at http://tinyurl.com/CodingBootcamp . Space is limited and selection will be based on a first come first served basis. Contact csuci.computer.girls@gmail.com for more information (participants and volunteers are welcome).
