The Richard Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing is a conference designed to promote diversity, connect undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, researchers, and professionals in computing from all backgrounds and ethnicities.[1] The conferences are organized by the Coalition to Diversify Computing (CDC), sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), and presented by the Center for Minorities and People with Disabilities in Information Technology (CMD-IT).[1] The conferences are named after Professor Richard Tapia.[2] Tapia is an internationally acclaimed scientist, a member of the National Academy of Engineering, the first recipient of the Computing Research Association's A. Nico Habermann Award for outstanding contributions to aiding members of underrepresented groups within the computing community, a member of the National Science Board, and recipient of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring from President Bill Clinton.[3]

Conference structure

The Richard Tapia Celebration consists of three tracks: technical sessions, professional development, and broadening participation. These three tracks include Birds of a Feather sessions, workshops, panels, posters, and a Doctoral Consortium.[4] Since 2017, the Celebration also serves as one of the ACM Student Research Competition sites.[5]

Richard A. Tapia Achievement Award

The Richard A. Tapia Achievement Award for Scientific Scholarship, Civic Science and Diversifying Computing is awarded at the Celebration to individuals who have made significant contributions to broadening participation in computer science.[6]
