In 1998, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Computer Society of the Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE-CS) convened a joint curriculum task force called Computing Curricula 2001, or CC2001 for short. The final report is planned to be organized into five volumes: Volume I: Overview, Volume II: Computer Science, Volume III. Computer Engineering, Volume IV. Software Engineering, Volume V: Information Systems. A committee was established in the beginning of 2001 to define the body of knowledge that constitutes computer engineering as well as to develop course outlines to suit different curricula in computer engineering. The purpose of the article is to delineate the mission and the vision of the task and to invite members in particular and public in general to participate in this important activity.
