Cassel (Moderator) At SIGCSE 2010, program officers from the National Science Foundation presented a panel on "Interdisciplinary Computing Education for the Challenges of the Future."[1]. 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(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)
[A]: Yes, it is still true today. SIGCAS is very important to an organization such as ACM with a primary focus on technological advances. By calling attention to the social impact and ethical concerns caused by emerging technologies, SIGCAS raises the alarm about the unintended consequences of such technologies. With a membership comprised of social(More)
