Pf. Dougherty chairs symposium on computing education
Sponsored by the ACM, there are over 100 refereed papers, panels, workshops and other sessions at the conference, which has many supporters from industry and academia.
SIGCSE 2014 continues the long tradition of bringing together colleagues from around the world to present papers, panels, posters, special sessions, and workshops, and to discuss computer science education in birds-of-a-feather sessions and informal settings. The SIGCSE Technical Symposium addresses problems common among educators working to develop, implement and/or evaluate computing programs, curricula, and courses. The symposium provides a forum for sharing new ideas for syllabi, laboratories, and other elements of teaching and pedagogy, at all levels of instruction.
John Dougherty has been involved with the conference since 2005, chairing also in 2008.
