Workshop on Computing Curricula :->

The ground realities of India and its CS higher education pose unique challenges. For the past year and half, an effort has been on to develop a model curriculum focused on a few sample courses. These initial efforts have developed the basic framework and noted a number of potential pitfalls in this adaptation process. The key next step is to involve our academia into the process. Towards this end, the current workshop focuses on a hands on approach towards an ACM-IEEE CS2015  style curriculum development that is relevant to the Indian context.
