The Canadian Celebration of Women in Computing

An ACM-W Celebration Event

January 22-23, 2016, Ottawa, Ontario

CAN-CWiC 2016 will unite technical women from across Canada for networking, mentoring and planning for Canada’s technical future.    The conference will inspire women at all points in their careers – from first year students to senior technical women with years of industrial experience.   The career fair will provide an excellent opportunity for companies to recruit technical talent from across Canada.

The conference will be hosting a graduate forum and poster competition. Interested in participating? Learn more and submit your proposal here.

Female students attending a Canadian university or college program are also invited to join the IBM and TD Bank Programming Challenge for a chance to win a trip to the finals that will be held as part of the conference. Finalists will receive transportation to and accommodation compliments of IBM.  You will be coached by expert mentors prior to making your final presentation on January 22 in Ottawa.  Winners will be announced at the CAN-CWiC banquet.
