The 2014 Richard Tapia Conference is scheduled for February 5-8, 2014 in Seattle, WA.

The goal of the Tapia Conferences is to bring together undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, researchers, and professionals in computing from all backgrounds and ethnicities to:

* Celebrate the diversity that exists in computing;
* Connect with others with common backgrounds, ethnicities, disabilities, and gender so as to create communities that extend beyond the conference;
* Obtain advice from and make contacts with computing leaders in academia and industry;
* Be inspired by great presentations and conversations with leaders with common backgrounds.

This year's conference theme is "The Strength of Diversity" as the Tapia Conference celebrates the contributions to computing by members of broad and diverse communities. Further, the Tapia Conference uniquely supports and mentors diverse communities of students and professionals.

On Saturday, February 8, 2014 from 8:00AM - 5:00PM there will be a workshop dedicated to providing professional development to High School Computer Science Teachers.  Workshop topics include: the
national CS10K effort, the proposed AP CS Principles course and a hands-on workshop to learn UC Berkeley's Beauty and Joy of Computing curriculum, which has been twice chosen as a CS Principles national pilot. During the Conference teachers will meet daily to "de-brief", share highlights and network.

Teachers selected to attend the workshop will receive a scholarship, which includes registration, hotel accommodations and a reimbursable travel stipend to attend the entire conference.
