1997 Midwestern ACM Chapter Conference
17-19 October, 1997
Calls for Participation
The 1997 Reflections | Projections Conference features a varied program
of activities ranging from a job fair, the MechMania programming contest,
a computer art show, technical presentations, and workshops. Participants
are primarily students from Midwestern colleges and universities, with a
variety of others also attending.
Proposals for technical presentations are solicited in the following general
areas, although presentations in any area of computer science will be considered.
This would be an excellent opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to
present their work. Non-academic presenters are also encouraged to propose
- Computer Languages - current trends, compiler implementation
- Operating Systems - comparisons of commercial operating systems
(i.e. Windows vs. Unix vs. MacOS vs. BeOS ...), security, I/O performance
- Computer Graphics - algorithms, software systems, hardware support,
- Hardware - processor design, low-level optimizations, non-traditional
- Education - effective teaching techniques, "canned" projects for courses
All submissions will be examined by a program committee for its suitability to the
Computer Art Show
This year we will be adding a new feature to the conference. Computer artists are
encouraged to submit their work for inclusion in our art show. Both static and
dynamic displays are acceptable.
Want to share your knowledge? Those who want to give introductory workshops are
encouraged to submit their proposals.
