NSBC 2018

AUGUST 9 - 11 2018, NEW ORLEANS, LA

What is NSBC?

NSBC stands for the “National Society of Blacks in Computing”.  In March of 2016, leaders from iAAMCS (the Institute for African-American Mentoring in Computing Sciences) decided to host a conference dedicated to creating a safe space for participants to receive mentorship, increase professional networks, enhance social capital, and plan their career trajectories. As a result, the National Society of Blacks in Computing Conference was formed.

This year, the NSBC Conference is honored to be invited to co-locate with the Black Data Processing Associates (BDPA) Conference, celebrating their 40th year of consistently supporting professionals and students at all levels in the fields of information technology, computer science and related S.T.E.M fields. Your NSBC registration will also cover admission to BDPA events, sessions, and meals.
