Google vice president Megan Smith and University of California, San Diego professor Fran Berman will be the keynote speakers at the 9th annual Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, which takes place September 30-October 2 in Tucson, Arizona. The New York Times named Smith one of the "women who could change the face of technology" in August 2003, and Berman is an international leader in the development of cyberinfrastructure.
The conference's Plenary Panel of Technology Executives will include Lockheed Martin's Linda Brisnehan, Intuit Corporation's Nora Denzel, and Amazon.com's Werner Vogels. The Grace Hopper Celebration is a technical conference designed to highlight the research and career interests of women in computing, with leading researchers and industry experts discussing their work and special sessions focusing on the role of women in technology.
Co-presented by the Anita Borg Institute and ACM, the conference features more than 100 sessions in more than eight tracks, as well as invited technical speakers, panels, workshops, robotics workshops, new investigator technical papers, Ph.D. forums, technical posters, birds-of-a-feather sessions, the ACM Student Research Competitions, and awards. This year's theme is "Creating Technology for Social Good."
