Registration opens on 1 June for the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing — a series of conferences designed to bring the research and career interests of women in computing to the forefront.

To be held in Tucson, Arizona from 30 September to 3 October, the celebration will feature presenters who are leaders in their respective fields, representing industrial, academic and government communities. Leading researchers will present their current work, while special sessions will focus on the role of women in today's technology fields, including computer science, information technology, research and engineering.

Past Grace Hopper Celebrations have resulted in collaborative proposals, networking, mentoring, and increased visibility for the contributions of women in computing.

Now accepting scholarship applications.

Online hotel reservations now available as well.

The award is named after Grace Hopper, a computing pioneer who developed the first compiler for a computing programming language. The celebration is sponsored by Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology, and the Association for Computing Machinery.
