CS Table 9/27: Discussion with Tapia Conference Attendees

This week in CS Table we’ll be inviting our Grinnell students that attended the ACM Richard Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing conference two weeks ago in Austin, TX! They will be discussing their experiences at the conference and share advice on how to get the most of your time at a computing conference like Tapia. We will also have a broader discussion about why we have a conference like Tapia and its importance for computing.

There is no reading for this week, but please view the Tapia website to familiarize yourself with the conference. In particular, make sure to read the bio on Richard Tapia and skim the Tapia conference schedule to give you some context for the discussion.

Computer science table (CS Table) is a weekly meeting of Grinnell College community members (students, faculty, staff, etc.) interested in discussing topics related to computing and computer science. CS Table meets Tuesdays from 12:00-1:00pm in JRC 224B. Contact the CS faculty for the weekly reading. Students on meal plans, faculty, and staff are expected to cover the cost of their meals. Visitors to the College and students not on meal plans can charge their meals to the department.
