Maintaining it all and driving it forward are professionals and researchers in computer science, across disciplines including:

  • Computer Architecture and Computer Organization and Design
  • Data Management, Big Data, Data Warehousing, Data Mining, and Business Intelligence (BI)
  • Human Computer Interaction (HCI), User Experience (UX), User Interface (UI), Interaction Design and Usability
  • Artificial intelligence (AI)
