As a proud member of the Consortium for Computing Sciences in Colleges, CCSC:Central Plains holds a yearly regional meeting enabling faculty from throughout the Central Plains area to gather to learn, network, and get energized about teaching and new developments in the Computing disciplines.

If you live in the Central Plains — primarily Missouri, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, but we welcome people from everywhere — then please consider joining us at our 27th annual conference, on April 9-10, 2021, hosted by the University of Missouri Kansas City in, of course, Kansas City, Missouri.

While UMKC is hosting the conference, it will be entirely online, and so from the comfort of your own home/office you can enjoy a great lineup of papers, panels, tutorials, workshops, as well as poster and programming contests that your students will not want to miss.

If you’ve never attended a CCSC Conference, we encourage you to do so! It’s never been easier (nor less expensive 😀). There is always a wealth of information shared by Computer Science colleagues from around the region making it a great way to learn new tricks for your classroom.
