LOPSA is pleased that USENIX shares our goal of bringing attention to the various issues facing women in our industry by hosting the Women in Advanced Computing Summit. This summit is part of their Federated Conferences week, which also includes the ATC conference and others.If you want to make a submission or just learn more about it, please check out the info page at:
LOPSA would like to show our support in this area and provide something concrete toward the topic. Matt (from the LOPSA Board) came up with a great idea to provide a stipend to assist someone in attending the conference. We will award based on submission of an essay, but I'll leave those details to the posting about it.
That links to the conference and summit details at the official site as well.
