Nine years ago, the student chapter
of the Association for Computing
Machinery at the University of Illinois (ACM@UIUC) held its
first annual student computing conference. Attended by 150 students
from across the Midwest and supported by fourteen corporations,
it was a great success. MechMania
(an AI programming contest), and a computing employment
ACM@UIUC is holding the ninth annual
conference this year on October 17-19, 2003 at the Urbana-Champaign
campus. We expect to have over 600 student attendees and 30 corporate
sponsors. There will be over 20 sessions (individual talks,
panel discussions, and workshops) that will encompass the past,
present, and future of computing.
ACM could not host this conference
without the generous support of our sponsors.
Corporate partners donate money, equipment, and prizes to the conference
effort. Because of their donations, student attendee fees can be
kept low, and the quality of all of our events is enhanced. Please
take a moment to view our list of sponsors.
