Discussing Logisim's future at SIGCSE

At a "birds of the feather" session in the upcoming SIGCSE conference, the developer behind Logisim, Carl Burch, will lead a discussion on future development directions for Logisim. In addition to this discussion, this should be an opportunity to learn from others who use Logisim in their classes. SIGCSE, the primary conference concerning computer science education in the United States, will be March 9-12, 2011, at Dallas, Texas. The Logisim session is scheduled for 6:10pm, Thursday, March 10, 2011, in State Room 2. More information about conference registration is at: http://db.grinnell.edu/sigcse/sigcse2011/ - the early registration deadline is January 31, 2011.

Educational institutions around the world use Logisim as an aid to teaching about digital logic and computer architecture. As a Java application, Logisim can run on most major operating systems.
