Educators' Symposium

Chairs: Joe Bergin and Steve Metsker
Pace University and Dominion Digital

Theme: Active Learning in Industry and Academe

Join us at OOPSLA's 16th Educators' Symposium, the premier forum for educators in academia and industry with an interest in object-oriented and other related technologies. This one-day symposium offers a venue for consultants and academics to share experiences and to explore new ideas that can help us understand and teach better. It achieves these goals through featured talks, paper presentations, interactive sessions, demonstrations, posters, and group discussions.

Online registration is open through October 17; after the 17th you can register by fax or on-site at OOPSLA. The Educators' Symposium is a terrific educational value itself. The full day is $160, or $135 for ACM members, $45 for Secondary Education teachers (including CEGEP educators from Quebec), and $35 for ACM Students. Please register now and join us at OOPSLA!
