MinneWIC 2017
The ACM-W Celebration of Women in Computing in the Upper MidWest

February 17-18, 2017
University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN

What is MinneWIC?

MinneWIC is the ACM-W Celebration of Women in Computing for the Upper MidWest. We call it MinneWIC from the native american word "Minne" that means water.

This regional meeting will bring together students, faculty, and computing professionals from across Minnesota and neighboring states to share experiences and strategies for recruiting and retaining women in computing fields, and explore issues common to women working in these fields. Specifically, the goal is to provide an opportunity for young women to explore career opportunities in computing, and to network with women from academia, industry and government. This celebration is part of a nationwide effort to address the alarming decline of women choosing computer science professions.

What will happen at MinneWIC?

MinneWIC will start Friday February 17 late afternoon and continue until early afternoon on Saturday February 18. It will include keynote invited speakers, a career panel, a poster session, and sessions contributed from attendees. Details will be in the Program once they are finalized.

Who should attend MinneWIC?

You should attend if you are interested in learning about the challenges and rewards of computing careers, in advancing technology through broader representation of women, and in sharing your experience. We encourage Everyone is invited to submit contributions in the appropriate categories (see Call for Participation). Best poster awards will be given, with a monetary award funded by ACM-W.
