The Association for Computing Machinery at the University of Illinois is hosting its 14th annual computing conference on October 3-5, 2008. Reflections | Projections is an opportunity for us to bring together students from across the country to gain a broader perspective on computer science in the presence of some of the great minds of today and yesterday. Throughout the weekend, we'll have several speakers from across the country (from industry and academia alike), a programming competition from in-house developers (MechMania), and a job fair for students and companies in Computer Science.

Attendance and participation at the conference is free of charge, but we'll be handing out free t-shirts to those who register ahead of time. Those coming from out of town may additionally wish to select to have food provided (at a cost of $20) when submitting their registration. Paid registration is also required to be eligible for participation in the MechMania programming competition.

Thanks for your interest; be sure to check back for updates on event participation, volunteer registration, and general updates. We're looking forward to seeing you in October!
