ACM Richard Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing

Diverse group of Tapia 2016 attendees participating in conference panel

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 the Center for Minorities and people with Disabilities in IT (CMD-IT).

Tapia 2017 is scheduled for September 20-23, 2017 in Atlanta, GA.
