What is InWIC?

The goal of the Indiana Celebration of Women in Computing (InWIC) conference is to provide a low cost, regionally-tailored, small conference for women in computing. InWIC is a more intimate version of the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, and shares the same philosophy, supportive environment, and goals.
