About CCSC

The Consortium for Computing Sciences in Colleges is a non-profit organization focused on promoting quality computer-oriented curricula as well as effective use of computing in smaller institutions of higher learning, which are typically non-research in orientation. It supports activities, which assist faculty in making appropriate judgments concerning computing resources and educational applications of computer technology.

The Consortium is concerned with the advancement of major programs in both Computer Science and Computer Information Systems, and with the use of computers in the Liberal Arts and Sciences.

CCSC currently sponsors ten regional conferences in eight regions: Northeastern, Eastern, Southeastern, Midwestern, Rocky Mountain, Northwestern, South Central, and Central Plains. CCSC publishes the Journal of Computing Sciences in Colleges, which is included in the ACM Digital Library.

Typically the faculty members who attend these conferences are from primarily undergraduate institutions whose main focus is undergraduate teaching. Attendance has varied based on regions and years, and ranges from 60 to 265 attendees each conference. This year we are also planning sessions for K-12 teachers and administrators, who are interested in exploring the use of technology in their schools. In addition, we are endeavoring to attract college students, many of whom will be the teachers of tomorrow.

Types of products

This is the first time the CCSC Eastern Regional Conference will be held at Juniata College. We are at the western edge of the CCSC Eastern Region, so we are hoping to see some new faces at this years conference and have been actively working with the community of colleges around us. We are also working to appeal to the K-12 community and have invited them to join us for special sessions and possible credit towards their continuing education.

We invite both national and local vendors to lease display table(s) at the conference to display and demonstrate their products. Textbooks, software, and hardware are among the types of products that have been exhibited in the past.

Vendors may also sponsor a Conference event (refreshment break, luncheon, etc.) or participant gift (e.g. tote bag), speaker, or student prizes (Programming Competition, Poster).

Advantages to Exhibitors

Some advantages to exhibitors include:

National Partners

Over the years, for a vendor registration fee several vendors, including book vendors and software vendors, have attended and displayed at these regional conferences. As a result of vendor interest in CCSC conferences, CCSC now offers a national vendor registration at the base rate of $2000/year. Currently Cengage Learning, Microsoft Corporation, Shodor, and Turing's Craft are participating in this program. (See http://ccsc.org/home/partners.htm)
