Call for Participation

The theme of this year’s conference is “looking forward”, which encourages attendees at InWIC to consider the future of their own careers and of this dynamic, ever-growing field. The InWIC Program consists of a two streams to which you can contribute:

Sessions: Sessions can cover a range of topics and take a variety of formats – everything from a tutorial on a cutting edge technical trend to a panel discussions on issues impacting women in tech. In your proposal summary, please describe the topic and format of your session. Sessions will typically run for 30-45 minutes (so plan accordingly!)

Posters: Undergraduate and graduate students are invited to submit proposals for posters to be presented during the poster session on Friday night. We welcome proposals related to your research, special projects, survival tips, solutions for unique challenges faced (such as first person in family to attend college, ideas for paying for college, work(study)-life balance, etc.)


This is the second call for proposal submissions! The deadline is October 16, 2017.

Notifications for proposals will be sent on October 19, 2017.

Please feel free to email us at or submit a question under the Contact Us section if you have any questions about which stream is most appropriate for your submission.
