CECS Graduate Students Participate in Women in Computing in Kentucky (KYWIC)
Esin Saka and Ernur Saka attended the Women in Computing in Kentucky (KYWIC) conference (the only attendees from Louisville). Esin Saka's poster received recognition as the "Best Graduate Poster", earning Esin a scholarship for the next Grace Hopper Celebration, the largest international conference about women in computing.
Additionally, the two students made a presentation about the confidence crisis. At the end of the presentation, Esin and Ernur received several positive comments.
The goal of the Kentucky Celebration of Women in Computing (KY-WIC) conference is to provide a low cost, regionally-tailored, small conference for women in computing who do not have the opportunity to attend major conferences. The next KYWIC will be held closer to Louisville.
