New!The CS2013 Ironman v1.0 draft is now available here.
The CS2013 Ironman v1.0 draft represents a full revision of the CS2013 Body of Knowledge based on community comments on the CS2013 Strawman draft. The Ironman draft also includes additional chapters as well as over 50 course exemplars, showing how the CS2013 Body of Knowledge may be covered in a variety of courses.
The CS2013 Curriculum Steering Committee is seeking additional exemplars of courses and curricula from the broader community. This open process will better connect the CS2013 Body of Knowledge to real, existing approaches representing diverse and innovative ways to teach computer science. Information regarding course/curriculum exemplars is available on the Course and Curriculum Exemplars Page.
The Ironman v1.0 draft will be open for comment until June 2013. To submit comments on the Ironman draft please see the Commenting on Ironman Draft Page.
OverviewFollowing a roughly 10 year cycle, the ACM and IEEE Computer Society jointly sponsor the development of a Computing Curricula volume on Computer Science. These volumes have helped to set international curricular guidelines for undergraduate programs in computing. In the summer of 2010, planning for the next volume in the series, Computer Science 2013 (CS2013), began. The charter for this effort is given below.
CharterTo review the Joint ACM and IEEE/CS Computer Science volume of Computing Curricula 2001 and the accompanying interim review CS 2008, and develop a revised and enhanced version for the year 2013 that will match the latest developments in the discipline and have lasting impact.
The CS2013 task force will seek input from a diverse audience with the goal of broadening participation in computer science. The report will seek to be international in scope and offer curricular and pedagogical guidance applicable to a wide range of institutions. The process of producing the final report will include multiple opportunities for public consultation and scrutiny.
