CiE-CS: Women in Computability Programme
Computability in Europe
Women in Computer Science and Mathematics face particular challenges in pursuing and maintaining academic and scientific careers. Women are significantly under-represented at all levels of the academic pipeline, while the very few female students involved in Computing and Mathematical Research need to be aware of their talent and role in the scientific community. Indeed, the scarcity of senior women academicians produces the lack of critical information about the culture and content required for pursuing careers in the mathematical sciences. It is for this reason that the Association Computability in Europe has been coordinating a Women in Computability program since 2007, hosted during the annual CiE conference. Our aim is to increase female participation in this series and to offer an opportunity to discuss matters related to women in computer science and mathematics. We are proud to announce that the WiC program at CiE 2016 in Paris is sponsored by ACM's Women in Computing.
Support instruments. The WiC programme supports female researchers by travel grants, a mentorship programme and an annual WiC workshop.
For more information about the programme as a whole, please contact the chair of the Steering Committee, Arnold Beckmann. For more information about the programme at an individual CiE conference, please check the conference website and contact the WiC organizer listed there.
For the year 2016, see the WiC Workshop web page, CiE 2016: Pursuit of the Universal.
History of the programme. The programme Women in Computability started in 2007, sponsored by the Computer Research Association's Committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research (CRA-W). From 2008 to 2010, the programme was funded by a grant entitled Increasing representation of female researchers in the computability community by the Elsevier Foundation. From 2011 to 2014 the program was funded by the publisher Elsevier.
In 2016 the WiC programme is funded by the ACM's Women in Computing.
