Submit a workshop proposal to ECOOP 2014 and come to Uppsala next summer! Proposals are evaluated as they come in, so submit early and often.

ETHZ has a tenure track position. They're looking for software engineering, systems, and PL people.

Another great article by John Regehr. What he describes matches what I have seen from researchers at Georgia Tech, EPFL, IBM, the CDC--basically every professional scientist I have ever interacted with. They search for results and publish when they find one.

There are a lot of ways to address the problem, but one punch line is that you can't believe something just because it has a high statistical confidence level. At the same time, it's very hard for a paper reviewer to reject a paper with impeccable statistics.

You can gain better information if you look for experiments where negative results are reliably going to be reported. As a simple example, when a professional sports team loses, everyone finds out; neither team can bury the result. Another example is an experiment involving very expensive hardware and a pre-announced target, such as the Watson Jeopardy tournament. If Watson had lost, I expect they still would have shown the episodes.

"In 2012 we decided to completely review our Computer Science BSc. [...] In order to support the First Year we made two decisions. The first was to use Racket as the programming technology."

Go +Racket!

"I no longer touch code because I couldn't deal with the constant dismissing and undermining of even my most basic work by the "brogramming" gulag I worked for. And that started even when I was in school. I was the ONLY female in my university's mid-level programming courses and even though I worked to hard to always be in the top 95% of the curve, if a pasty white guy with thin-rimmed glasses and a tee-shirt with an "ironic" phrase doubted me, I was wrong."

Hm... Why half? I guess like 80-90% of population are unwilling or incapable (most of them probably both) to do CS. Is it a problem? Personally I don't think so, there is a bunch of other stuff to do. But probably I'm wrong and we really do need more people. But, if it's all about CS needing more people... shouldn't we encourage people (regardless of their sex) to join? Or do we really need more women? Sounds like sexism to me...
Next, you say that woman are tech. qualified and like computers... but that's just meaningless: you are missing the quantifier ;) I guess \exists would work while \forall will be wrong. Exactly the same will be true for men. Well, qualitatively. But what about numbers? In my experience men group will be way bigger. And in my opinion there is nothing wrong with that. I bet there are some natural reasons for that. And btw, I never saw these cultural problems you are talking about... and I'm studying/working in a mostly-male communities since my high school...

Great view. Service was a bit slow. Too much cheese on the cacio e pepe.
