We believe it is necessary to improve the SIGCSE Technical Symposium’s diversity, equity, inclusion, and access. To this end, we are happy to announce that we have a newly formed Universal Design Committee starting with the 2023 Technical Symposium, co-chaired by Yasmine Elglaly and Earl Huff Jr. The committee’s role is to produce a set of guidelines for creating and maintaining a more accessible, equitable, and inclusive symposium experience with a particular immediate focus on attendees and those perusing the symposium materials. In addition, the committee will work with other committees to improve the universal design of their aspects of the symposium.

We encourage anyone who is interested in serving on this committee to complete this interest form. There should shortly be a message to this mailing list from the committee chairs, but if you have further questions please email
