The papers for this special issue of Computer were selected to be representative of those presented at the DISE Workshop on Microprocessors and Education held at Colorado State University, August 16-18, 1976. The workshop was sponsored by the DISE Committee (Digital Systems Education Committee?a project supported by the National Science Foundation) along with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of Colorado State University. The workshop was intended to provide a forum both for the academic and industrial communities. For educators it was an opportunity to exchange ideas on how microporcessors should be integrated into the curriculum and to discuss microprocessor hardware, software, and system problems associated with the educational environment. For industry it was a chance to present its views on what skills will be required of graduating engineers, to provide an insight into the problems and design decisions encountered in designing and fabricating devices and systems, and to provide educators with a forecast of future developments in the industry.
