ACM Richard Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing

Boston, MA

The 2015 Richard Tapia Conference is scheduled for February 18-21, 2015 in Boston, MA.

The goal of the Tapia Conferences is to bring together undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, researchers, and professionals in computing from all backgrounds and ethnicities to:

This year’s conference theme is Diversity at Scale as the Tapia Conference celebrates efforts to move diversity in all aspects of computing beyond conversation and study into full practice and implementation. As a community, we recognize that we must scale our diversity efforts to fully utilize computing to address the larger problems faced by today’s society.

As we move from research to practice, it is incredibly important that the benefits of diversity, on a large scale, be uncovered and disseminated. We celebrate the push to diversify computing and to quantify the value of diversity, and we highlight researchers, companies, and agencies that build and benefit from a diverse workforce.

Join us to celebrate diversity in computing and to embrace the challenges as we pursue Diversity at Scale!
