Diversity: Simply Smarter!

This year’s conference evokes the basic yet irrefutable concept that diversity is simply the smarter choice. Whether we seek innovation, intelligence, creativity, strength or beauty of ideas, the best outcomes will come from a diverse set of perspectives, a diverse set of experiences, and a diverse set of people. Accordingly, we target a conference program diverse, yet balanced, in every aspect.

Anticipating a well-balanced program for academic, research and industrial interests, we invite you to submit your content to our three conference tracks:

Technical: covering technical topics in computing such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, Internet of things, robotics, security and privacy, virtual/augmented reality, human-centric computing, social computing and education.

Professional development: covering professional development topics such as communications, networking, learning, leadership, time management, entrepreneurship.

Broadening participation: covering broadening participation topics such as culturally relevant computing, gender-inclusive design, use of technology, accessibility, unconscious bias, imposter syndrome, mentoring, outreach.

In these three tracks, we have a variety of sub-programs: birds of a feather (BOFs), workshops, panels, doctoral consortium, and posters. The Tapia conference also provides student scholarship opportunities.

Program notifications will go out on Friday, March 25, 2017.[Updated].
