Women in Advanced Computing Summit (WiAC)

So a while back I made a blog post about the USENIX LISA ’11 conference Women in Tech panel. Carolyn Rowland (who was a panelist) and Nicole Forsgren Velasquez (who attended the panel and had some great insights to share) are putting together a brand new USENIX event: the Women in Advanced Computing Summit (WiAC). USENIX is having a federated conferences week from June 12-15 in Boston, Massachusetts, and the Women in Advanced Computing Summit is an all-day at the very beginning, on Tuesday, June 12. It’ll be at the Sheraton Boston Hotel, located in Boston’s Back Bay area by Newbury Street and the Hynes Convention Center. The Women in Tech panel was a really worthwhile and helpful event to attend and since WiAC’12 is organized by many of the same folks, it’s sure to be a great event to attend. The full program is available and the lineup of speakers looks pretty impressive.
