WATERLOO The University of Waterloo will host the fourth-annual Ontario Celebration of Women in Computing this week. The conference brings together female professionals, students and faculty who are interested in, or work in, computing. The conference on November 8 and 9 helps generate excitement about computing while providing attendees with opportunities for networking, sharing and mentoring.
A number of speakers will address attendees including:
• Maria Klawe, President of Harvey Mudd College
• Carol Leaman, CEO of Axonify Inc

“We are excited to host this event at the University of Waterloo where so much cutting-edge computer research takes place and much of that by women,“ said Professor Kate Larson of the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science. “This is an important opportunity to showcase the exciting contributions being made by women in computing, and to inspire female students to pursue computing.”
Previously held in Kingston, London, and Toronto, Ontario Celebration of Women in Computing 2013 is set to be the largest event in the annual series so far.
