Women in Theory Workshop: Call for Participation

via Lisa Zhang, Tal Rabin and Shubhangi Saraf:

The Women in Theory (WIT) Workshop is intended for graduate and undergraduate students in the area of theory of computer science. The workshop will feature technical talks and tutorials by senior and junior women in the field, as well as social events and activities. The motivation for the workshop is twofold. The first  goal is to deliver an invigorating educational program; the second is to bring together theory women students from different departments and foster a sense of kinship and camaraderie.

The 4th WIT workshop will take place at Google New York, May 28 – 30, 2014, in coordination with NYU and Princeton, right before ACM STOC 2014.

Confirmed Speakers: Lenore Blum (CMU), Julia Chuzhoy (TTI), Shafi Goldwasser (MIT), Orna Kupeferman (Hebrew U.), Katrina Ligett (Caltech), Rotem Oshman (U. Toronto), Vera Sos (Alfrd Rnyi Institute of Mathematics).

Important dates:
Application deadline:  January 20,  2014.
Notification of acceptance: February 10,  2014.
Workshop: May 28-30, 2014.

For more information see https://womenintheory.wordpress.com/ or contact  womenintheory2014@gmail.com.  I attended WIT as a speaker in 2012 and had a wonderful time.  I wish it was something I could go back to every year!  I highly recommend you encourage your graduate students to go!
