1st Summit on Gender Equality in Computing

1st Summit on Gender Equality in Computing

The Greek Chapter of ACM’s Council on Women in Computing (Greek ACM-W) organizes the 1st Summit on Gender Equality in Computing. Despite the significant growth of Computer Science and Engineering and the exciting career prospects, there are still severe gender disparities in this field. The Workshop aims to bring together students, researchers and professionals in the field of Computer Science to (a) discuss and understand the reasons why there is gender disparity in individuals opting for Computer Science and Engineering, (b) celebrate and disseminate the achievements of computer professionals, women and men, in a fair and gender-equal way, (c) share experiences and stories, and (d) come up with incentives and measures to reduce gender inequalities in the field.
The Poster Session solicits posters from all areas of Computer Science and aims to offer the opportunity to undergraduate, graduate and PhD students as well as young researchers and professionals of any gender to engage with other researchers and professionals in the field, disseminate research work, receive comments, practice presentation skills, benefit from discussing ideas with other researchers. Submissions should present novel ideas, designs, techniques, systems, tools, evaluations, scientific investigations, methodologies, social issues or policy issues related to any area of computing. Authors may submit original work or versions of previously published work. Posters are ideal for presenting early stage research.

Submission Instructions

Poster abstracts are to be submitted electronically through EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/? conf=gec2019. Submissions should introduce the area in which the work has been done and should emphasize the importance of the contribution. All submissions must be in English, in pdf format. They must not exceed one page in length and use the ACM conference publication format. This one-page extended abstract must be submitted to CMT as a paper which also contains a short (one paragraph) abstract.

All submissions will be peer reviewed by the Poster Evaluation Committee. Accepted submissions will be archived on the event website (but there will be no proceedings). A submission may have one or more authors of any gender. At least one author of each accepted submission is expected to attend the summit to present the ideas discussed in the submission.
