ACM CELEBRATION OF WOMEN IN COMPUTING EVENT

The ACM Celebration of Women in Computing (CAN-CWIC) 2019 event will be taking place at the International Center in Mississauga Ontario on November 8/9th, 2019.  This event will draw more than 700 attendees from all provinces across Canada.  This conference is in its 9th year and has been a huge success.  It features several keynote speakers, panels, workshops, a poster session, a graduate forum and a huge career fair.  The event is highly subsidized by our many corporate sponsors and, as a result, we have been able to keep costs low for student attendance.

COMPUTING STUDENT RESEARCH CONFERENCE

Queen’s University is excited to host the second annual Computing Student Research Conference this October 4-5. CSearch is a conference for all undergraduate and graduate students with an interest in STEM to come together and discuss their ideas regarding innovation and research in progressing technology fields. We encourage the exchange of ideas between attendees through workshops, speakers, and socials.

Our primary goal is to bring students and researchers together from multiple academic faculties to promote the sharing of ideas through conversation and networking. The conference is also a great opportunity for students that are looking to build stronger foundations in research and are interested in learning about some of the studies being done throughout Canada.

We are currently accepting abstract submissions and early registration is open until the end of August. More information can be found on our website:  https://www.csearchconference.com
