The ACM-W Europe Celebration of Women in Computing (womENcourage 2016) aims to celebrate, connect, inspire, and encourage women in computing. The conference brings together undergraduate, MSc, and PhD students, as well as researchers and professionals, to present and share their achievements and experience in computer science.
WomENcourage solicits posters from all areas of Computer Science. Posters offer the opportunity to engage with other conference attendees, disseminate research work, receive comments, practice presentation skills, benefit from discussing ideas with other researchers from the same field.
Submissions should present novel ideas, designs, techniques, systems, tools, evaluations, scientific investigations, methodologies, social issues or policy issues related to any area of computing. Authors may submit original work or versions of previously published work. Posters are ideal for presenting early stage research. There will be two poster categories, one for undergraduate students and one for graduate (MSc and PhD) students.
Posters are to be submitted electronically through EasyChair. Submissions should introduce the area in which the work has been done and should emphasize the originality and importance of the contribution. All submissions must be in English, in pdf format. They must not exceed one page in length and they must use the ACM conference publication format. This one-page extended abstract must be submitted to EasyChair as a paper which also contains a short (one paragraph) abstract. Poster abstracts that do not follow the submission
guidelines will not be reviewed.
All submissions will be peer reviewed by an international Poster Evaluation Committee. Accepted submissions will be archived on the conference website (but there will be no proceedings). The Guide to a Successful Submission provides tips for preparing a good poster and provides information about the reviewing criteria.
At least one author of each accepted submission is expected to attend the conference to present the ideas discussed in the submission. Information about student scholarships for accepted posters is available here.
