Conferences We Support
The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing is the World’s Largest Gathering of Women Technologists. It is produced by the Anita Borg Institute and presented in partnership with ACM.
Co-founded by Dr. Anita Borg and Dr. Telle Whitney in 1994 and inspired by the legacy of Admiral Grace Murray Hopper, Anita Borg Institute’s Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC) of Women In Computing Conference is designed to bring the research and career interests of women in computing to the forefront.
The goal of the Tapia Conferences is to bring together undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, researchers, and professionals in computing from all backgrounds and ethnicities to:
Celebrate the diversity that exists in computing;
Connect with others with common backgrounds, ethnicities, disabilities, and gender so as to create communities that extend beyond the conference;
Obtain advice from and make contacts with computing leaders in academia and industry;
Be inspired by great presentations and conversations with leaders with common backgrounds.
FCRC assembles a spectrum of affiliated research conferences and workshops into a week long coordinated meeting held at a common time in a common place. This model retains the advantages of the smaller conferences, while at the same time, facilitates communication among researchers in different fields in computer science and engineering. Each morning, FCRC features a joint plenary talk on topics of broad appeal to the computing research community.
