We now a central web home for the SIGITE 2011 conference. You can visit it at http://sigite2011.sigite.org.
Here’s a nice piece by NCWIT on the differences among the computing disciplines (computer engineering, computer science, information systems, information technology, software engineering).
One of the interesting experiences of being a conference Program Chair is discovering that professors ask for extensions more frequently than students. Evidently, all across the world, ultra-critical dogs have been consuming first drafts of SIGITE papers …
Seriously, I know that for those on a semester system, the end of April is a busy time. Thus, I have extended the paper deadline to midnight Friday May 13.
Edit: The new deadline is now Friday June 3, 2011. That’s it: no more extensions!
Hello everyone. I just wanted to remind you that the April 30 deadline for the 2011 SIGITE in New York is fast approaching. This conference promises to be the absolute finest SIGITE to date. It will, I’m sure, be a flawlessly organized conference in a beautiful and historical location with New York City just around the corner. What more could you ask for in a conference?
Now I’m sure many of you had pledged to give up writing conference papers for Lent, but with Easter just around the corner, you now have no excuse. So next week, start writing that conference paper, poster, or panel idea and have it ready for their respective deadlines.

The Computer Science Teachers Association invites comments for its 2011 draft CSTA K-12 Computer Science Learning Standards: Revised 2011>
At this time of year we are often swamped with a wide variety of teaching responsibilities and as such we tend to postpone everything else until that huge stack of student papers or student Java code printouts are marked.
While I am feeling this as well, I do want to remind everyone that the April 30 deadline for submitting papers for SIGITE 2011 in New York is also approaching. This conference promises to be the best SIGITE yet, so be sure to leave room in your schedule for writing your SIGITE 2011 paper submission.
