administration of the TauRUs survey. Results suggest that two primary areas of differentiation between TauRUs and Taulbee institutions are gender distribution of faculty and faculty salaries.
In the winter/spring of 2015, ACM conducted the third annual ACM-NDC Study (a survey of " Non-Doctoral-Granting Departments in Computing "), intended to be an annual complement to the Computing Research Association (CRA) Taulbee Survey of Ph.D.-granting departments in computing . ACM-NDC is funded by ACM (with generous support in the past from Google),… (More)

Regional celebrations are locally organized, professional conferences modeled after the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (GHC). This BOF allows people who have organized or would like to organize such a conference to get together to share successes and challenges. Attendees that have hosted a regional celebration should bring a un-poster (i.e.… (More)
The use of distributed memory architectures as an eeective approach to parallel computing brings with it a more complex program development process. Finding a partitioning of program code and data that supports suucient parallelism without incurring prohibitive communication costs is a challenging and critical step in the development of programs for… (More)
