Call for Participation in SPLASH Educators’ Symposium

Eugene Wallingford just shared this with the SIGCSE-Members list — relevant here, too!

Now that SIGCSE 2011 is in the books, please consider submitting
a paper or proposal to the Educators’ Symposium at SPLASH 2011!

SPLASH is the new umbrella conference for OOPSLA, in which many
of you have participated over the years.  The new name reflects
the fact that OOP isn’t the only focus of the conference.  If
you’ve attended the Educators’ Symposium over the last decade,
you already know that.  OOP is one focus, but the symposium also
deals with other current and future topics in teaching programming
and software development.

The 2011 Educators’ Symposium is tackling this broad mandate head-
on.  What is important in teaching programming to future and
current professionals who work in this rapidly changing world?
What is important in teaching programming to an audience with
interests that range from science to the web to data mining to art?
Where do we go in a post-OO world?

That is the charge for attendees at the 2011 Educators’ Symposium:
charting a course for the next 10 years of software development

Check out the call for proposals at
Submissions are due April 8, 2011.

If you have any questions, please let me know!

—- Eugene, for the symposium committee:

Eugene Wallingford, U. of Northern Iowa
Curt Clifton, Rose-Hulman
Danny Dig, U. of Illinois
Joe Bergin, Pace U.
Owen Astrachan, Duke U.
Rick Mercer, U. of Arizona, USA

The Educators’ and Trainers’ Symposium is part of the
ACM International Conference on
Systems, Programming, Languages, and Applications:
Software for Humanity (SPLASH’11)
