Technical Programme


Papers will be presented as technical talks during womENcourage 2015. These presentations are a chance to:

  • share ideas and exciting new work at an international event;
  • gain experience in submitting and presenting papers;
  • allow others to learn about your work.


womENcourage 2015 welcomes posters from all fields in Computer Science. They may present work in progress as well as more mature work. There will be two poster categories, one for undergraduate students and one for graduate (MSc and PhD) students.


womENcourage 2015 panels aim at bringing together researchers and practitioners in the field of Computer Science and related fields to provide a platform for undergraduate and graduate students to exchange with and learn from the panelists. Discussions can cover a variety of subjects such as career development, mentoring, work life balance, creation of startups or technical subjects.


At workshops we discuss and get new insights in topics such as new technologies, career development, and bridging the gender gap. As it is never too early to start, we are also aiming at organising workshops for children in technology-related topics. womENcourage 2015 invites workshop proposals addressing the following and related topics: technical workshops, career development workshops including building up soft skills, leadership; and bridging the gap workshops with a focus on gender and workshops for children.
