The staff at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta regrets that the conference hotel is overbooked for a set of the nights for the Symposium. A message has gone out to some of our attendees who will be relocated to one of two local hotels for the start of their stay. Transportation will be provided, along with other accommodations, including complimentary stay at the other hotel.

We appreciate that the Hyatt Regency Atlanta has stepped forward and accepted responsibility for this situation and its resolution. The SIGCSE 2014 team is focused on providing a successful Symposium experience.

This year's SIGCSE Symposium will be held at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta (265 Peachtree Street NE, just off Interstate 75).

Workshops begin Wednesday, March 5, 7:00pm.

Conference begins, Thursday, March 6th, 8:30am

SIGCSE 2014 continues our long tradition of bringing together colleagues from around the world to present papers, panels, posters, special sessions, and workshops, and to discuss computer science education in birds-of-a-feather sessions and informal settings. The SIGCSE Technical Symposium addresses problems common among educators working to develop, implement and/or evaluate computing programs, curricula, and courses. The symposium provides a forum for sharing new ideas for syllabi, laboratories, and other elements of teaching and pedagogy, at all levels of instruction.

We're excited to be hosting SIGCSE in beautiful Atlanta, Georgia. Please read Atlanta Mayor, Kasim Reed's welcome letter, as we well as a welcome letter from the State of Georgia's Governor, Nathan Deal.

Online registration for SIGCSE 2014 and Learning @ Scale is now closed. You may register onsite at the appropriate conference registration desk during registration hours.

Learning @ Scale

The first annual meeting of the ACM Conference on Learning at Scale will be held March 4-5, 2014 in Atlanta, GA, USA. This conference is intended to promote scientific exchange of interdisciplinary research at the intersection of the learning sciences and computer science. Inspired by the emergence of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and the accompanying huge shift in thinking about education, this conference as created by ACM as a new scholarly venue and key focal point for the review and presentation of the highest quality research on how learning nd teaching can change and improve when done at scale.
