“Womenpower Symposium 2016: An ACM Celebration of Women in Computing” and the supporters are proud to announce Scholarships for international attendees. A number of scholarships will be available for students or young professionals who present papers or posters at Womenpower Symposium (WeMe2016).

The purpose of these WeMe2016 Scholarships is to encourage women in the field of computing to:

  • Accelerate in their career through learning from others and asking for help when necessary;
  • Converse with others on how best to manage their work life balance and
  • Meet with their peers in order to build on their networks of expertise.

The scholarships will cover either or both travel and accommodation expenses.
