Women in Computablity Workshop

Women in Computer Science and Mathematics face particular challenges in pursuing and maintaining academic and scientific careers. Women are significantly underrepresented at all levels of the academic pipeline, while the very few female students involved in Computing and Mathematical Research need to be aware of their talent and role in the scientific community. Indeed, the scarcity of senior women academicians produces the lack of critical information about the culture and content required for pursuing careers in the mathematical sciences.

The Women in Computability workshop aims to bring together women in Computing and Mathematical research to present and exchange their academic and scientific experience with young researchers. The meeting will offer the CIE scientific community the opportunity to encourage young students, especially young female researchers, to have active careers in the mathematical and computational sciences. The CIE community will also discuss on the status of women in Computability research

The workshop will be held on Tuesday, June 30.

Mentorship Programme

The mentorship programme allows junior female researchers to meet senior women in their field, discuss career issues with them and get their support. Junior female researchers who wish to participate in this programme will be assigned a mentor for the duration of the conference with whom they will meet several times, including a dinner invitation with other junior researchers and the mentors. We hope that the ties between mentor and mentee will be strong enough to allow continued discussions after the CiE conference and that this initiative will help to foster a strong community among women in computing and mathematical research.

If you are a junior female researcher, please contact Liesbeth De Mol (liesbeth.demol@univ-lille3.fr) to be added to the list of participants. If you are an established female researcher and would like to participate as a mentor, we would be very happy about an e-mail as well.

Here you can find some tentative guidelines for both mentors and mentees who want to participate in the programme.
