Abstract or Description

Abstract: "Information technology and computer science have not only reshaped computation, communication, and commerce; they have expanded the basic models and paradigms of many disciplines. Informatics education has obligations to all the communities that rely on information technology, not just the computing professionals. Serving this extended audience well requires changes in the content and presentation of computing curricula. This paper sketches the coming needs for information processing and analyzes the populations that will require informatics education. It considers curriculum requirements through two examples, one outside the traditional boundary of computer science and one inside. "
