Increasing Female Participation in Computing: The Harvey Mudd College Story
Found in: Computer
By Maria Klawe
Issue Date:March 2013
pp. 56-58
Over a four-year period, Harvey Mudd College dramatically increased the number of female computer science majors by implementing three innovative changes that other institutions can easily replicate. This is one of five articles providing industry perspect...
 
Multi-layer grid embeddings
Found in: Foundations of Computer Science, Annual IEEE Symposium on
By Alok Aggarwal, Maria Klawe, David Lichtentein, Nathan Linial, Avi Wigderson
Issue Date:October 1985
pp. 186-196
In this paper we propose two new multi-layer grid models for VLSI layout, both of which take into account the number of contact cuts used. For the first model in which nodes
 
Non-existence of one-dimensional expanding graphs
Found in: Foundations of Computer Science, Annual IEEE Symposium on
By Maria Klawe
Issue Date:October 1981
pp. 109-114
Expanding graphs are the basic building blocks used in constructions of graphs with special connectivity properties such as superconcentrators. The only known explicit method (Margulis[7], Gabber and Galil[5]) of constructing arbitrarily large expanding gr...

Inspiring, recruiting, and retaining women for a career in computing remains a challenge.
     
Changing the image of computer science: a north american perspective in conversation with Europe
Found in: Proceedings of the 10th annual SIGCSE conference on Innovation and technology in computer science education (ITiCSE '05)
By Maria Klawe
Issue Date:June 2005
pp. 3-3
The title of this talk is deliberately misleading: I really want to talk about misinformation.. Most citizens in what we laughingly call an "information society" derive most of what they know about their world from the mass media, for example from televisi...
     
Increasing the number of women majoring in computer science: what works?
Found in: Proceedings of the 36th SIGCSE technical symposium on Computer science education (SIGCSE '05)
By Maria Klawe
Issue Date:February 2005
pp. 203-231
This talk examines approaches taken at a variety of universities and colleges to increase the number of women majoring in computer science. We also discuss the new National Center for Women in Information Technology and its role as a repository for best pr...
     
Toys to teach: mathematics as a collaborative climbing exercise
Found in: ACM SIGGRAPH 2002 conference abstracts and applications (SIGGRAPH '02)
By James Dai, Jonathan Cohen, Maria Klawe, Michael Wu, Troy Wu
Issue Date:July 2002
pp. 117-119
Whereas traditional research on collaborative educational systems has primarily focused on how to define better modes of digital interaction, this approach is found lacking when applied to developing collaborative systems for elementary school aged childre...
     
Design issues involving entertainment click-ons
Found in: Conference companion on Human factors in computing systems: common ground (CHI '96)
By Douglas Super, Maria Klawe, Marvin Westrom
Issue Date:April 1996
pp. 179-180
We present an approach to control information flow in object-oriented systems. The decision of whether an informatin flow is permitted or denied depends on both the authorizations specified on the objects and the process by which information is obtained an...

By Kellogg S. Booth, Kori Inkpen, Maria Klawe, Steven D. Gribble
Issue Date:May 1995
pp. 258-259
We present an approach to control information flow in object-oriented systems. The decision of whether an informatin flow is permitted or denied depends on both the authorizations specified on the objects and the process by which information is obtained an...
     
Role of interface manipulation style and scaffolding on cognition and concept learning in learnware
Found in: ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction (TOCHI)
By Kamran Sedig, Maria Klawe, Marvin Westrom
Issue Date:March 1994
pp. 34-59
This research investigates the role of interface manipulation style on reflective cognition and concept learning through a comparison of the effectiveness of three verisons of a software application for learning two-dimensional transformation geometry. The...
     
Refreshing the nerds
Found in: Communications of the ACM
By Maria Klawe
Issue Date:January 1988
pp. 67-68
Case study findings from several corporate environments suggest that successful virtualization does not depend on the degree of technological sophistication. It's how the tools are used that matters.
     
Women in computing: where are we now?
Found in: Communications of the ACM
By Maria Klawe, Nancy Leveson
Issue Date:January 1988
pp. 29-35
The world is changing and the demographics of the workforce are changing with it. At one time there was hope that our exciting new field of computer science would not only revolutionize the technical world in which we live, but break new ground in professi...
     
On monotone formulae with restricted depth
Found in: Proceedings of the sixteenth annual ACM symposium on Theory of computing (STOC '84)
By Maria Klawe, Mihalis Yannakakis, Nicholas Pippenger, Wolfgang J. Paul
Issue Date:December 1984
pp. 480-487
We prove a hierarchy theorem for the representation of monotone Boolean functions by monotone formulae with restricted depth. Specifically, we show that there are functions with πk-formula of size n for which every &sgr;k-formula has size exp ω(n...
