Our theme this year, "Engineering as a Human Endeavor: Partnering Community, Academia, Government, and Industry," was chosen for two reasons-because the future of engineering will be its human dimension, and because the Colorado Front Range is a meeting ground for all four partners. We have encouraged submissions based on our theme, and will have a rich mix of full papers, works-in-progress, panels, and workshops. We have made a concerted effort to develop nontraditional sessions throughout the conference to provide forums for topics that cannot be explored in the constraints of 15-minute presentations. The Program Committee, with representatives from our sponsoring organizations-the IEEE Education Society, the IEEE Computer Society, and the Education Research and Methods Division of ASEE-has produced an excellent, leading-edge program, as befits a conference on Frontiers in Education.
The conference subject matter will be inclusive, including outreach, K-12, groups that are underrepresented in engineering, and specific educational techniques for courses and curricula. Following a conference tradition, Wednesday will be filled with workshops on a variety of stimulating topics. The University of Colorado will highlight its state-of-the-art facilities for engineering education, the Integrated Teaching and Learning Laboratory and the Discovery Learning Center, during a special reception.
