We invite professionals to submit papers that will enhance knowledge of academic computing topics. All topics will be considered and those papers that are accepted will be presented at the conference and published in the Journal of Computing Sciences in Colleges and the ACM Digital Library.  Papers (at most 6 pages, single-spaced) must be submitted on or before 11/25/2018. Authors will be notified by 1/6/2019, and final submissions must be made by 1/13/2019.

We invite professionals to submit abstracts describing panels and tutorials related to academic computing topics which they believe conference attendees will find timely. All topics will be considered; those that are accepted will be presented at the conference and their abstracts published in the conference proceedings.  Panel and tutorial abstracts must be submitted on or before 11/25/2018.  Authors will be notified by 1/6/2019, and final submissions must be made by 1/13/2019.

K-12 Teacher Submissions

The 2019 Central Plains Regional Conference of the Consortium for Computer Sciences will feature a track for K-12 teachers. All K-12 educators who are interested in becoming academic presenters are encouraged to submit a paper, tutorial, workshop, panel proposal, nifty assignment or lightning talk for consideration.

 Student Papers

We invite students to submit their papers or presentations to Consortium for Computing Sciences in Central Plains. Student presentations will not be peer-reviewed, neither will they be published in the ACM digital library. The papers will be posted on the conference website. The best papers submitted will be awarded certificates. Papers must be submitted via email to our Student Paper Session Chair, Dr. Scott Sigman, by 3/11/2019.
