At SIGCSE 2010, program officers from the National Science Foundation presented a panel on "Interdisciplinary Computing Education for the Challenges of the Future.". An outcome was a funded project " Toward a Climate for Interdisciplinary Computing" (OCI-1058623); PIs Lillian Cassel and Ursula Wolz led four national meetings with a mix of computing and… (More)
Social and professional principles were included in ABET computer science accreditation standards in 1987 and first appeared in the <i>ACM/IEEE-CS Computing Curricula</i> in 1991. This moderated panel presented the Social Issues and Professional Practice Knowledge Area (SP KA) of the 2013 ACM/IEEE-CS draft curricular guidelines for computer science.… (More)
The ACM/IEEE-CS 2001/2008 computer science curricular guidelines are in the process of being updated and the strawman version of CS2013 will be unveiled at SIGCSE 2012. Inclusion of the ethical, societal and professional responsibility issues dates back to Computing Curricula 1991. This poster session will present the revised Social and Professional issues… (More)
[Q1]: Looking back, what was it that first sparked your interest in computer/information ethics?
