The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (GHC) is the world’s largest gathering of women in computing. The 2012 Grace Hopper Celebration will take place 3-6 October 2012 at the Baltimore Convention Center. This year’s theme “Are We There Yet?” recognizes that technology and the culture of technology are continuously evolving but there are also concrete goals we are striving to achieve. Since UMBC is a Gold Academic Sponsor, UMBC students will receive a 20% registration discount.
At the conference, leading researchers will 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. The technical conference features well known keynote speakers and invited technical speakers, panels, workshops, new investigator technical papers, PhD forums, technical posters, birds of a feather sessions, the ACM Student Research Competition and an Awards Celebration.
If you would like to submit a paper or poster abstract on your work, the deadline is this coming Friday, March 16th. See the 2012 GHC call for participation for details.
