The submission date for papers is extended to Monday September 18, 2006. The proceeding go to the publisher on Tuesday, so there is no chance for a further extension. Don't miss this opportunity to become a published author!
Posters, lightning talks and BoFs may now be submitted at any time. Acceptions are on a rolling basis. Submit early because we will not be able to accept new proposals once the schedule is filled.
MidWIC invites proposals for research papers, posters, lightning talks, and Birds of a Feather (BoF) meetings. Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to submit proposals.
Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, which will be distributed to all conference participants. The top papers will be chosen for a 15-minute presentation during the Paper Session on Saturday.
Participants may also present their work as a poster and/or lightning talk, or "Birds of a Feather" (BoF) session. Proposals may be submitted at any time and we will accept on a rolling basis until the schedule is full. (poster registration, talk registration, BoF registration)
MidWIC encourages collaboration. Work together! There may be two or more authors/presenters on a poster, lightning talk, BoF, or paper submission.
Interested undergraduate students may wish to field a team for the CCSC:MW Programming Contest.
Research Papers due September 18, 2006
Papers from undergraduate and graduate school women will be published in the conference proceedings. We invite submissions for two tracks:
- Technical papers in any area of computing, and
- Papers regarding social or ethical issues of computing, especially gender issues.
Please adhere to the ACM Publication Guidelines to format the paper. The length of the paper should be at least two pages but no more than six pages. Submit your paper by September 18, 2006. Papers will be lightly reviewed for content and suitability only. Our goal is to mentor young researchers and to encourage young women to gain confidence in the publication process.
The research posters are more geared towards interesting class projects, undergraduate/graduate research, and works-in-progress. Please register your poster.
Lightning Talks are five minute mini presentations that can range from a class project, research, inside information on how to survive a computing major, programming tips, ideas on how to create a successful women in computing group, etc.
Pair up with another women and present together!
Please register your lightning talk. Talk proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis, so the earlier you can submit a proposal, the better.
Birds of a Feather
Birds of a Feathers (BoFs) are informal discussion groups where groups of people can talk about a specific issue or topic area. BoFs can be lead by anyone to discuss anything related to computing, academia, industry, or women in computing. Ideas for BoFs can be registered at any time.
