Meals on Saturday and Sunday (from breakfast Saturday through lunch and afternoon break on Sunday) and other workshop expenses (but neither travel nor lodging) will be covered for all participants.
We gratefully acknowledge support for the workshop from Addison Wesley Longman (breakfast), McGraw-Hill (lunch), John Wiley (break), and Metrowerks/Motorola (lunch). The CSED group at Duke, with support from Microsoft, is sponsoring dinner.
The workshop will provide an informal atmosphere in which we will discuss topics related to the first year of undergraduate computer science education. The goal is to engage participants in talking about interesting topics related to first year instruction and to continue the rejuvenation process that summer sometimes brings with it.
The workshop will run from 9:30 - 5:00 on Saturday and 9:30 - 3:30 on Sunday.
There will be several components to the workshop.
Truth, Beauty, and Engineering:
What I'd Like My CS Freshman Kid to Learn Next Year
Living in Interesting Times: Curses and Blessings in Teaching OOP
How to Produce the Best OO Programmers
Michael Clancy, Nell Dale, Elliot Koffman, Walter Savitch
If you'd like to give a talk based on your position, please provide more than an abstract so that we can judge the suitability of your position and statement as well as its fit in the workshop. Talks should address some aspect of first-year instruction (hopefully) both philosophically and pragmatically.
Proposals for panel session topics are also welcome.
We invite submission of well-crafted and developed assignments, homework problems, programs and lectures. These submissions should be somewhere between a Programming Pearl à la Bentley and a Nifty Assignment (from the 1999 SIGCSE conference).
If you're interested in giving a talk or presentation about your position, or in proposing a panel, please indicate this in your mail.
Participants who wish to have their submissions considered for a talk, panel, or pearl should submit by June 12. The program committee will make decisions by June 21.

All workshop activities will take place at Duke. Hotel Information for nearby hotels.
The talks will take place primarily in B101 aka the Love Auditorium of the Levine Science Research Center (LSRC). Some sessions will take place in the D-wing (computer science) of the LSRC.
On the weekend there is ample parking for the LSRC and the LSRC is a short walk/shuttle from hotels.
