TAPIA 2018 Registration Opens in May
Scholarships are Available
Phone: 407-284-1234

The Tapia conference is designed to acknowledge, promote and celebrate diversity in computing.

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.
  • Diversity: Roots of Innovation. The 2018 Tapia conference theme reminds us to celebrate the historical role of diversity with respect to STEM innovation, and declare it as a standard essential set of roots for computing innovation in the future. Conquering computing challenges going forward -- while ensuring benefits across all global citizens–whether it is artificial intelligence, blockchain, cybersecurity, or a range of other subjects, requires the resources, talent, and experiences from a diverse collective. Just as risk-taking, perseverance, and creativity have been embraced as cornerstones of innovation, organizations and society must treat diversity with the same reverence. This should be reflected in leadership, strategies, and policies charging forward.

    Scholarship Recipients should wait to receive their registration code and logistics information before registering and/or booking travel.
