Assistant Professor Ben Shapiro will be the keynote speaker for the IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing (VL/HCC), Oct. 11-14, in Raleigh, North Carolina.

In his keynote, “Emerging Paradigms for Computer Science Education and Their Implications for Visual Languages,” Shapiro will describe how changes in the methodologies of computer science necessitate changes in computing education, and how new programming tools for beginners could embrace those changes.

The VL/HCC symposium supports research that makes computation easier to express, manipulate and understand.
