Carolina’s Women in Computing Regional Conference
The goal of CWIC is to encourage the participation of women in computing by providing professional and social support. The conference will feature talks and panels by highly successful technical women. Undergraduate and graduate students are invited to participate through poster presentations, lightning talks or birds-of-feather sessions and will have opportunities to network with successful technical women from academia, government, and industry, and their fellow students. A career fair will conclude the conference.
CRA-W is sponsoring a Distinguished Lecture Series at CWIC.

The conference will bring together people from industry and from South Carolina and North Carolina academic institutions. The program will be of interest to both undergraduate and graduate students and faculty. Similar regional Celebration of Women in Computing conferences are attended by both small private colleges and large public Universities.
Students are encouraged to be active participants of the conference by presenting a poster, a lightening talk or organizing a birds-of-a-feather session. It is a great opportunity to gain experience in presenting your work in a friendly, non-threatening environment.
Depending on interest, longer papers and faculty paper sessions might also be included in the program. See more here.
All students will have an opportunity to participate in the career fair at the conclusion of the conference.
