When Wendy Powley of the school of computing at Queen’s University asked for volunteers to work on the first Ontario Celebration of Women in Computing (ONCWIC), I wanted to join, and saw this as a chance to meet new faculty and colleagues. What I found is a group of women with an inspiring passion to pull off an event that would not only promote the get together of very intelligent and inspiring women role models, but also provide the chance for young women scientists to present their research ideas to academic faculty from almost every university in Ontario, and prove their capabilities to potential recruiters from top corporations in the computer science field.

ONCWIC is organized by Queen’s University Women in the School of Computing society (WISC). The conference will be held on the 22nd/23rd of October, 2010, at the Radisson Hotel in Kingston Ontario.

We want to spread the message about this conference and make it a real celebration of women success in the computing field.
