SDSM& T HOSTS 15TH COMPUTERS AND WRITING CONFERENCE
The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology is proud to be hosting the 15th Computers and Writing Conference, May 27- 30, 1999. Rapid City joins the ranks of cities from El Paso, Texas to Honolulu, Hawaii that have previously hosted the four- day event.
The mission of the conference is help teachers and professionals at all levels who use computers in writing or writing instruction. The conference allows a forum for these professionals to share information and strategies on how and when to incorporate computer and Internet technology into their classes, research and other work.
Dr. Michael Day, Associate Professor of English at Tech, was instrumental in SDSM& T’s selection as the host site. After Day proposed the Black Hills as a possible location and received permission from the administration of SDSM& T, Rapid City was selected for the May, 1999 Conference. Rapid City was deemed an appropriate site for this conference, whose theme is “ Tradition and Technology,” because of its central location and close proximity to the picturesque Black Hills, including Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse Memorial.
The deadline for proposals for the May conference was in October, 1998. A program committee of ten professionals from across the United States reviewed the proposals and decided on 130 panels, forums and workshops which will involve almost 200 presenters and over 250 participants from around the world.
Individuals who are interested in attending the conference, volunteering to help or simply obtaining more information can contact Dr. Michael Day at ( 605) 394- 5100. Information can also be found by viewing the Conference’s web site at http:// cw99. sdsmt. edu or by emailing cw99@ silver. sdsmt. edu .
