The Association for Computing Machinery at the University of
Illinois (ACM@UIUC) is hosting its fourth annual
student computing conference on October 2-4 of this year. Registration for the conference is
open to anyone and everyone who is interested in cutting edge computing technology. No
university or ACM affiliation is required.
The purpose of Reflections | Projections is to bring students
from all over the country together to gain a broader perspective on the field of computer
science. Our goal is to expose our attendees to things that they would not experience in a
classroom. It's also a weekend of fun, food, and coding!
The conference begins on October 2 with a job fair. Our 30
corporate sponsors will be recruiting for summer, coop, and permanent positions. Be sure to
bring your resume!
All of the technical presentations will take place on Saturday
and Sunday (October 3-4). There will be about 14 sessions over the two days. Bjarne
Stroustrup, the creator of C++, will deliver the keynote address on Saturday afternoon.
If you know C++ and you like to code, take a look at MechMania. Our AI programming
contest begins Friday night and culminates Sunday afternoon with the MechMania Main Event!
Teams of 2-3 programmers will compete for galactic conquest.
