MacBookGateways and Portals

The Ada Project (TAP) 
Named in honor of Ada Lovelace, TAP is a clearinghouse for information and resources related to women in computing. It lists conferences, employment resources, fellowships and awards, organizations, projects and programs, and publications.

Computer Science
This site provides an extensive listing and gateway to computer science resources. The first collection of resources are gateways to the resources of the sub-disciplines of computer science, such as artificial intelligence, concurrent systems, formal methods, programming languages, software engineering, and theoretical computer science. Access is also furnished to academic departments; associations; bibliographies, preprints, and technical reports; dictionaries and encyclopedias; electronic books; employment sites; courses and tutorials; and software repositories.

Ethics in Computing
This site serves as a portal for resources on ethics from various associations. It also provides access to resources on commerce, computer abuse, privacy, risks, social justice issues, and speech issues.

AI Topics
AI Topics is a starting point for finding information on artificial intelligence. This American Association for Artificial Intelligence Web site links to basic information along with news, education resources, reference materials, courses, forums, and career information. In may be browsed using several directories, or searched with a built-in search engine. 

Artificial Intelligence Resources on the Web
This starting point from Exeter University provides links to artificial intelligence conferences, journals, special interest groups, and university research groups, along with subject-based Internet resources on agents, artificial life, case-based reasoning, constraint programming, data mining, expert systems, fuzzy logic, genetic algorithms, knowledge engineering, knowledge representation, neural networks, and robotics.

Computational Geometry Pages
This starting point provides access to Web-based resources dealing with computational geometry including links to research groups, forums, bibliographies, job announcements, software and code, events and course materials. It also furnishes information about books and journals. 

Cryptography A-Z
Cryptography A-Z is a metasite linking introductory information on cryptography, algorithms; protocols and standards; selected books, journals, conferences, and societies; and additional Web-based sources.  

Object-Oriented (OO) Technologies
Compiled by the Data & Analysis Center for Software of the U.S. Department of Defense, this site serves as a gateway to Web sites containing information on object-oriented technologies. It contains links to information on analysis and design, courses, tutorials, languages, literature (publications), metrics, modeling, people, programs, organizations, service providers, specifications, standards, systems, tools, and databases. 

Algorithms 

Cryptography: Algorithms
This page lists commonly used cryptographic algorithms and methods and explains their basic concepts. Links are provided to implementations and text-books. The algorithms are divided into the following categories: public key cryptosystems, secret key cryptosytems, cryptographic hash functions, and random number generators. 

The Stony Brook Algorithm Repository
Based on his book The Algorithm Design Manual, Steven S. Skiena has mounted this site containing a collection of algorithm implementations for over 70 of the most fundamental problems in combinational algorithms. 

Career and Employment Sites  

KeysACM Career Resource Page
The Association for Computing Machinery developed this Web site to help students and professionals make informed decisions about employment and careers. It contains a searchable job database that includes full-time positions, internships, and summer jobs; self-assessment tools; and discussion forums for advice from professionals and students.  

Developers.net: Career Index
Developers.net provides a comprehensive employment site for information technology and software development professionals. It contains information on thousands of positions in the United States. The jobs database is searchable by keyword and includes full position descriptions, the capability to apply online, and links to the employer's website. This site is free, but users must register. 

History 

AlanTuring.net: The Turing Archive for the History of Computing
Claiming to contain "the largest Web collection of digital facsimiles of original documents by Turing and other pioneers of computing," this site includes information about Turing and his work on code breaking and interest in AI, computational complexity, and connectionism. In addition, there are related reference articles, and a link to The Turing Digital Archive that contains unpublished personal papers and photographs. 

Computer History Museum
The Computer History Museum is a real and virtual museum that preserves and presents important artifacts and documentation about computing. Its online collection includes photographs of the artifacts, documents, exhibits, the hall of fellows, a timeline of important events from 1945 to 1990, and a discussion forum.
