The Magic and Beauty of Computer Science

The Summit

Silicon Valley, CA. From January 12-14th 2009 an invitational summit was held of 200 visionary leaders from all sectors touched by computing. These sectors included science, engineering, industry, business, education, journalism, policy-making, and government. Participants inquired into the reasons each person had been fired up about their profession and how they could ignite similar fires in others. Working Groups that cross international boundaries were formed in order to seed, nurture, and cultivate new ideas in the community. These groups will aggressively publicize the message of the wonder of our field and the hope for our Computer Science future.
