    The number of women in computing is significantly lower than the number of men in the discipline, with African-American women making up an even smaller segment of this population. Related literature accredits this phenomenon to multiple sources, including background, stereotypes, discrimination, a lack of self-confidence, and a lack of self-efficacy. However, a majority of the literature fails to ... View full abstract»

    The field of computing is rapidly developing, requiring a strong and diverse labor force. The authors' work assessed the relationship between lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) students' sense of belonging in computing and thoughts about leaving the field. The results of two studies indicated that among undergraduate students (study 1) and graduate students (study 2), thoughts ... View full abstract»

    Using funding from the National Science Foundation, DePauw University launched a program for low-income, first-generation scholars in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields called Julian Scholars. All but one of the undergraduate students in the program began college expressing interest in medical careers, yet over half of the STEM graduates now pursue computer science graduate d...

    In this article, the authors examine the impact of participation in a national community for broadening participation in computing that engages college students in computing-related service projects. Results of their study show many benefits for undergraduate computing students who engage in such projects, including academic, career, and personal benefits, with students who are underrepresented in...

    Research on marginalized groups in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) commonly overlooks those who persist and succeed, positioning groups such as women of color as passive victims instead of active agents in their own achievements. Focusing on women of color who are successfully staying in STEM, particularly in a field like computer science where women and minorities are sev... View full abstract»

    The authors present an iterative and incremental development methodology for simulation models in network engineering projects. Driven by the DEVS (Discrete Event Systems Specification) formal framework for modeling and simulation, they aim to assist network design, test, analysis, and optimization processes. A practical application of the methodology is presented for a case study in the data acqu... View full abstract»

    Voronoi diagrams are fundamental data structures in computational geometry, with applications in areas such as physics-based simulations. For non-Euclidean distances, the Voronoi diagram must be performed over a grid-graph, where the edges encode the required distance information. The major bottleneck in this case is a shortest path algorithm that must be computed multiple times during the simulat... View full abstract»
