Announcement - Grace Hopper call for participation

The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing conference is now accepting proposals.

The conference, which will take place 28 September – 2 October 2010, is part of a conference series designed to bring the research and career interests of women in computing to the forefront. Presenters are leaders in their respective fields, representing industrial, academic and government communities. Leading researchers present their current work, while special sessions 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.

Key Deadlines:

  • The deadline to submit proposals is 16 March 2010.
  • Notifications on the submission status will be sent out by 18 May 2010.

Recommendations to anyone who wants to participate:

  1. Your subject should not be something specific to your organization.
  2. If you have a panel – it needs to span across organizations – not five people from the same company discussing an issue in their company. Combining academics and industry or interdisciplinary discussions are great.
  3. We are encouraging submissions that promote diversity and International participation.
  4. A submission in line with the theme of the conference “Collaborating Across Boundaries” would be ideal.
