CCSC:MW 2018

     We are pleased to announce that the twenty-fifth annual CCSC:MW Conference will held at Ball State University, in Muncie, IN. The date for this conference is September 28-29, 2018. (This date is a week later than announced at the 2017 conference.) This two-day conference has refereed papers, invited speakers, tutorials, panels, workshops, and discussions on computing science education issues in smaller colleges and departments.






Get Involved!

     We are interested in all aspects of computing in colleges. If you teach in a computer-related discipline and it’s of interest to you, it’s of interest to the CCSC:MW community! We welcome original research, experience reports, case studies, and position papers on computing-related topics.

There are several ways to get involved! Check out these links for more information.
