Scope:The Conference on Research in Equity and Sustained Participation in Engineering, Computing, and Technology (RESPECT) is the premier venue for research on equity, inclusion and justice in computing and computing education. Now in its sixth edition, the organization of RESPECT 2021 is guided by our conference theme, "From Broadening Participation to Justice-Centered CS Education". Since research in this area is inherently interdisciplinary, we invite contributions from computer science education, educational leadership and policy, learning sciences, cognitive and/or social psychology, social sciences, human computer interaction, and related disciplines.
