Statement of Purpose

The CCSCNE brings together faculty, staff, and students from academic institutions throughout the Northeast for exchange of ideas and information concerning undergraduate computing curricula.

This conference provides an affordable regional forum for the exchange of information and ideas pertaining to the concerns of computing and computing curricula in a smaller academic environment. The conference proper runs from Friday at 1:00 p.m. to Saturday at 2:00 p.m. and includes a plenary speaker on Friday at 1:00, a Friday evening banquet, a Saturday morning speaker, a Saturday luncheon, parallel paper sessions, tutorials, panels, student posters, a best paper award, and vendor displays. There are pre-conference workshops, and a pre-conference programming contest.
