The goal of the Tapia Conferences is to bring together undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, researchers, and professionals in computing from all backgrounds and ethnicities to:
Celebrate the diversity that exists in computing;
Connect with others with common backgrounds, ethnicities, disabilities, and gender so as to create communities that extend beyond the conference;
Obtain advice from and make contacts with computing leaders in academia and industry;
Be inspired by great presentations and conversations with leaders with common backgrounds

Thursday, September 15, 2016 — 4:30PM - 5:30PM: Birds of a Feather Talk - Learn About How NCWIT Can Support Female College Students in Computing In 2007, the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) created the Aspirations in Computing (AiC) program. AiC provides a long-term community for female technologists, encouraging persistence in computing through continuous engagement and ongoing encouragement. Thousands of women are offered technical workshops, networking at virtual and in-person meetups, visibility and recognition for achievements, and they gain exclusive access to scholarships, internships, and career opportunities at more than 650 NCWIT member organizations. Come learn about how you can join this vibrant community where peers are mentoring peers. We’d like to invite you to celebrate the amazing female technologists in the computing world. We’ll bring students together to celebrate triumphs, ask questions, seek advice, or to just enjoy each other’s company and leave Tapia with a new network of friends and computing peers.
Friday, September 16, 2016 — 10:45AM - 12:15PM: Increasing Diversity in Computing: Sharing of Good Practices NCWIT's Lucy Sanders will take part in this panel which will provide an opportunity for representatives from the NSF-funded Broadening Participation in Computing Alliances and other organizations to share their good practices about increasing diversity in computing. The panel will begin with an introduction to the NSF BP Alliances and other organizations including the following: AccessComputing, Exploring Computer Science Program, CRA-W/CDC, NCWIT, CAHSI, ECEP, STARS, IAAMCS, and CMD-IT. In particular, each panelist will be asked to discuss their organization and how they have successfully moved K-20 students through the computing pipeline. Following the panelist presentations, the moderator will open the panel for Q&A discussion with the audience on good practices.

The California Community College Association for Occupational Education (CCCAOE), was founded in 1967 as a technical support group for administrators of “vocational education programs” in the community colleges. As the California Community College mission changed, so has CCCAOE’s mission to become what is now recognized as the premier source of leadership and advocacy for career and workforce preparation. The core purpose of the organization is to strengthen communities and improve lives by preparing current and future generations for the workforce.

The 46th Annual Frontiers in Education (FIE) Conference is a major international conference focusing on educational innovations and research in engineering and computing education. We welcome submissions related to educational issues in electrical and computer engineering, energy engineering, software engineering, computing and informatics, engineering design, and in other engineering disciplines. FIE 2016 continues a long tradition of disseminating results in these areas.
Details on the NCWIT Panel, "Teaching Teachers to Teach Diverse Students in Computer Science: Content and Resources for In-person and Online Delivery" will be available as the we near the conference.
