"Our institute has launched an exciting new program for high-schoolers this summer in collaboration with Amazon! The Stimulating STEM Program was established by our DEI committee with the goal of exposing a targeted group of youths to an array of STEM research and related activities. This group of exceptional young people has been inquisitive and engaged. The initiative has proven that all that is needed is an opportunity, and we feel we have certainly provided it for these youth."

HAPPENING AT ISI

September 12-13

SYMPOSIUM ON THE

Future of Computing Research

COMPUTING RESEARCH TODAY is increasingly shaped by forces and trends that separate it from the simpler circumstances of the field’s founding era. Intellectual and technical maturing of the discipline, the ever-increasing centrality of computing to modern society, and changing expectations about career paths, collaborations, research impact, and work environments all contribute.

OUR GOAL is to examine critical questions that will drive and define the field and profession of computing research in the future, and to contribute meaningfully to the ongoing conversations shaping this rapidly developing evolution.
