The ACM Global Computing Education Conference (CompEd) is SIGCSE’s newest and fourth conference. In general, the conference is held in regions where SIGCSE does not regularly hold conferences*. There will be three conferences initially, being held every other year before a review. The first CompEd was held in Chengdu, China on May 17-19 2019.

CompEd 2021 was scheduled for Hyderabad, India in December 2021, but Covid-19 intervened. The Steering Committee decided at this point that it was committed to India and an on-site conference as the mission of CompEd is to bring the SIGCSE conference experience to areas of the world that to-date have not been able to have a SIGCSE conference in their region. The 2021 conference was then postponed until 202x. The x is reviewed each year, generally starting in the summer, intensifying by September, and is announced in December. Thus, if the x is going to be a 2, the announcement will be made in December 2021. If x is not to be 2, 3 will be considered next.

*Broadly, this excludes most North American and European countries however it could be possible to hold CompEd on these continents, depending on definition and the exact country in question. All locations in Asia, Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia (including Oceania), Asia, and South America, as well as regions that are outside the textbook definition of a continent, are within scope for consideration. Expressions of interest to hold CompEd are welcome!
