CMD-IT Tapia Conference

Org: CMD-IT (Center for Minorities and People with Disabilities in Information Technology)

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.

The Tapia Conferences are sponsored by the Association of Computing Machinery, and presented by CMD-IT.
