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 or information technology, this is an opportunity to share that experience with others and perhaps inspire them to pursue similar opportunities. It's easy to do a poster. Share your ideas and experiences with others or research.
For undergraduate submissions, there will be a contest, and the winning presenter will receive $1000 towards a conference of their choice.
Lightning Talks are short 5-minute presentations. Lightning Talk topics are wide ranging including exploring preliminary research, motivating an area of study or technology, or describing activities to encourage women in technology. They provide an opportunity to start discussion, showcase a technique or idea that hasn’t been fully tested, find collaborators, or receive input and critique on a new idea.
A panel consists of two or more participants, who present diverse perspectives or experiences on a topic related to computing or women and computing . Panels are held during a 25 minute or 55 minute session. The panel may include a presentation but the presentation should be kept to a maximum of 2/3 of the session to ensure time for discussion.
A workshop is in-depth instruction. Preferably, it involves active learning activities (hands-on or “pen-and-paper” exercises). The presenter is an “expert” in the field. Workshops are usually 1-2 hours long.
These 20 minute talks are intended to present an overview of a research area or large project in a way that would be understandable and inspiring to students at all levels, including those just beginning their study of computer science.
