We will have a "Women in Computer Science" workshop at Tel Aviv University on March 19, 2008. The goal is to have a great technical program by a fabulous set of leading women in computer science from both academia and industry, from Israel and abroad, and a chance for the women in Computer Science and related fields to get together. Interested female graduate students in computer science and related fields (engineering, mathematics) are encouraged to register now at firstname.lastname@example.org (there are only a few spots left). We are able to reimburse travel expenses for registered students outside TAU and lunch will be provided for registered participants. Space permitting, the invitation is extended to undergraduate female students as well (please apply at email@example.com). The technical lectures will be open to the general (female and male) public (faculty and students). There will also be a panel discussion with the invited speakers dealing with specific career challenges women face.
See http://www.cs.tau.ac.il/conferences/tauwocs-08/ for more details, schedule and how to register.
