This conference began in 2010 with the goal of knocking down the steriotypes and bringing people together. ACM Celebrations of Women in Computing help provide students with an affordable opportunity to participate in a regional conference and connect with other women of the field. These conferences provide networking between professional women and students, build community, and break down any feelings of isolation.

Interview Advice

This year, we are blessed with some great professionals from career services from UNC-Wilmington and Anderson University to guide students in how to properly prepare for a professional interview. In addition, we have a professor to give his personal advice to students and a professional who is the one asking the questions in these interviews. Come hear what you need to know about how to prepare for an interview in computing!

Cutting Edge Research

We will have talks on research going on right now to make our world a better place. Learn all about it and how you can get involved or bring your own ideas from dream to reality!
