Abstract:  In this presentation, I will introduce the audience to the women who developed such noteworthy, foundational programming languages as Fortran and COBOL.

John Byrne  "21st Century Skills"
Abstract: One topic that has been much discussed recently in the realm among educators is that of life skills for the 21st century. In the United States, with the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 much energy has been spent in attempting to raise the basic skill levels and standards in general curriculum areas such as reading and math, but little attention has been devoted to life skills. In this presentation, we will explore life skills as 21st century skills and how prepared our students are to meeting these life skills.
