This paper describes a qualitative participatory research project conducted at the National Advisory Committee on Computing Qualifications Conference in New Zealand (NACCQ2002). Data was gathered at a dynamic poster session. Results obtained indicated that majority of computing academics in the polytechnic community in New Zealand regard themselves as teaching in the core overlapping areas of Software Engineering, Computer Science and Information Systems, regardless of their professional affiliation. Most participants taught subjects that lay within the Information Systems area; very few positioned themselves in the exclusively Computer Science or Software Engineering areas, or in the ove r-lap between Software Engineering and Computer. Results from this research are discussed in the paper.
