Have you worked on an interesting project at school or work? If you have been involved in a research project, internship, or other interesting experience related to computer science, information technology, information systems, or software engineering, this is an opportunity to share that experience with others and perhaps inspire them to pursue similar opportunities. It’seasy to do a poster. Share your ideas, research, and experiences with others!
For undergraduate submissions, there will be a contest and the winning presenter will receive a cash award towards attending a conference of their choice.
Lightning Talks are short 5-minute presentations. Lightning Talks provide an opportunity to start a discussion, showcase a technique or idea that hasn't been fully tested, find collaborators, or receive input on a new idea. Lightning Talks are wide ranging.
Topic examples include (but are not limited to): exploring preliminary research, motivating an area of study in computer science or information technology, sharing a useful practice in system design or software engineering, describing activities to encourage women in technology, and describing an internship experience.
A panel consists of two or more participants who represent diverse perspectives or experiences on a topic related to women in computing or computing in general. Panels are 25 minutes in length. A panel may include a presentation, but the presentation should be kept to 5-10 minutes to ensure time for discussion. Potential topics include (but are not limited to): interviewing skills, work-life balance, diversity in the workplace, and interpersonal communication.
A workshop consists of in-depth instruction. Preferably, it involves active learning activities (hands-on or pen-and-paper exercises). The presenter should have significant expertise in the field. Workshops are 1 hour long.
A technical talk is a 20 minute talk intended to present an overview of a research area or large project in a way that is understandable and inspiring to students at all levels, including those just beginning their studies in computing.
