Attend SIGCSE 2015 in Kansas City, Missouri
at the Kansas City Convention Center

SIGCSE 2015 continues our long tradition of bringing together colleagues from around the world to present papers, panels, posters, special sessions, and workshops, (and new this year demos and lightning talks) and to discuss computer science education in birds-of-a-feather sessions and informal settings. The SIGCSE Technical Symposium addresses problems common among educators working to develop, implement and/or evaluate computing programs, curricula, and courses. The symposium provides a forum for sharing new ideas for syllabi, laboratories, and other elements of teaching and pedagogy, at all levels of instruction.

Supporters: Sponsors and Exhibitors

Get involved! Become a sponsor of SIGCSE 2015, or join us as an exhibitor!

The support of many excellent sponsors and exhibitors help make SIGCSE the amazing conference that it is.

Sponsors make this conference possible. The best way to transform how we approach the teaching of computing is to bring people together to share best practices, be they design strategies for active learning or assessment strategies for education online.

Exhibitors are an essential part of the SIGCSE community. As we engage in questions of how best to bring computing to students around the world, exhibitors connect us to what resources exist for our students.

SIGCSE is an excellent conference because of the hard work of its community. Every submission—be it paper, poster, or otherwise—is reviewed by people just like you.

This year, we have two new categories (Lightning Talks and Demos), and we need your help reviewing more than ever.

Learn how to become a reviewer for SIGCSE.

Pre-Symposium Events

The conference provides an opportunity for a limited number of pre-symposium events that will take place on Wednesday, March 4th, 2015. In the past, these events have included activities like workshops conducted by industry partners, computing education community roundtables, or mentoring sessions for new faculty. However, there are no specific criteria for the topics and/or format of these events.

Find out more about hosting one of these events.

Hey Students!

There are two ways you should consider getting involved at SIGCSE!

  • The ACM Student Research Competition is open to undergraduate and graduate students alike, and is a great venue for getting involved and gaining experience presenting your work.
  • Students help make SIGCSE happen. Student volunteers have a long and noble tradition at SIGCSE—your webmaster got his start there, after all! Volunteering helps make things run the way they should, and saves you registration fees.

Find out more about both of these great opportunities.

Your Committee

SIGCSE 2015 is brought to you by many brave volunteers.
