We would like to draw your attention to the Canadian Celebration of Women in Computing Conference<http://www.can-cwic.ca/> to be held in Ottawa, ON on January 22/23, 2016.
The percentage of females enrolled in Canadian undergraduate Computer Science programs is approximately 15%, down from 37% in mid 1980s. It is time to take action!
The Canadian Celebration of Women in Computing (CAN-CWiC 2016) will unite technical women from across Canada for networking and inspiration. Students will meet and mingle with other females working in the field.
Students can participate in the IBM and TD Bank Programming competition<http://www.can-cwic.ca/programming-challenge.html and the finalists will receive an all-expense trip to CAN-CWiC to participate in the finals and to attend the conference.
CAN-CWiC are looking for participation in the following areas:
