Ontario Celebration of Women in Computing

Have you heard about the upcoming Ontario Celebration of Women in Computing (ONCWIC), being held in Kingston by Queen's University October 22 and 23? It's a great opportunity for those of us who can't make it to Grace Hopper (and even those who do!), and let me tell you - it's a smoking deal.

Here's what it's all about:
The goal of ONCWIC is to allow students, faculty and professional women in Ontario to experience the opportunities for networking, sharing and mentoring that is unique to GHC. We recognize that attending the GHC is not an option for many women and the regional celebrations offer a comparable, low-cost alternative.
If you head over the registration page, you might notice that students pay just $25 and that includes shared accommodations in the hotel. Awesome!!

I'm thinking of putting in a poster before the September 30 deadline. I have heard there are prizes.

Whether you want to do a poster or talk or not, this conference will be awesome. If you're interested in going and might want to share a room with other CU-WISE girls, email and let us know!
