Women in Computing

December 18, 2019

Computing has become a ubiquitous influence in current times and is set to have an ever-increasing presence in the coming years. This will have a huge impact on the kind of technology that is going to be available to the layman. Given the young population, an emerging economy like India has, it is important that they are aware of the various technological advances that are being done, the huge amount of compute power that is available now and the means to leverage the two to resolve significant social issues that exist in the country. 

The goal of the “Women in Computing” event is to provide a platform for technology enthusiasts who are using compute power to design and invent solutions to problems pertaining to social good, and for women technologists, both current and prospective, to participate, present their work and popularize opportunities, challenges, and solutions, in the realm of responsible use of computing. The participants will have the opportunity to interact with experts in HPC and Data Science, leverage their expertise and form collaborations. 

 

 

Call for Papers 

Computing has become a ubiquitous influence in current times and is set to have an ever  increasing presence in the coming years. This will have a huge impact on the kind of technology that is going to be available to the layman. Given the young population, an emerging economy like India has, it is important that they are aware of the various technological advances that are being done, the huge amount of compute power that is available now and the means to leverage the two to resolve significant social issues that exist in the country.  

The goal of the “Women in Computing” event is to provide a platform for technology enthusiasts who are using compute power to design and invent solutions to problems pertaining to social good, and for women technologists, both current and prospective, to participate, present their work and popularize opportunities, challenges, and solutions, in the realm of responsible use of computing. The participants will have the opportunity to interact with experts in HPC and Data Science, leverage their expertise and form collaborations. We invite submissions of papers on original work in interdisciplinary domains with methodologies spanning across data science and high-performance computing.  

 

Topics of interest related to methodologies include, but are not limited to the following: 

● IoT-based, and/or data-driven analysis, 

● Real-time decision making for edge computing, 

● Visual analytics for large-scale and/or high-dimensional data, 

● Machine learning or deep learning algorithms or systems, 

● Artificial intelligence and/or robotics, 

● Distributed and cloud-based systems. 

 

These methodologies must be used in solutions stemming from unique ideas to solve pertinent socially relevant problem scenarios. Scenarios in interdisciplinary domains of interest include, but are not limited to the following: 

 

● Traffic planning and control, 

● Monitoring infant health in primary health centers, 

● Large-scale medical diagnosis for reducing the requirement of skilled doctors, 

● Low-cost ways of determining air/water quality and improving the quality, 

● Food processing methods that reduce wastage of produce, 

● Methods to reduce pesticide usage, 

● Solid waste collection, and management, 

● Women safety, 

● Accessibility and differently-abled inclusivity. 

 

Manuscript Guidelines

Submitted manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may not exceed six (6) single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5 × 11 inch pages (IEEE conference style), including figures, tables, and references. See IEEE style templates at this page at this page for details. Electronic submissions must be in the form of a readable PDF file. All manuscripts will be reviewed by the Program Committee and evaluated on originality, the relevance of the problem to the conference theme, technical strength, rigor in analysis, quality of results, and organization and clarity of presentation of the paper. 

Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines will be rejected without review and further action may be taken, including (but not limited to) notifications sent to the heads of the institutions of the authors and sponsors of the conference. Presentation of an accepted paper at the event is a requirement of publication. Papers will be selected for full-paper and short-paper types. Any paper that is not presented at the conference will not be included in the proceedings of HiPC Workshops. 

We require that the submission include at least one female author.
