Event description

Description

This fall (17/18 November) we are going to organize the Ada Lovelace Celebration in Uppsala, a two-day event aiming to bring together tech-interested people and companies from the area. With a mixture of technology and gender-related talks we hope to provide a platform for participants to network, learn and support the cause of technology and gender equality.

We are currently searching for speakers, sponsors, exhibitors (career fair) and mentors for our event. We welcome talks in all areas of Computer Science and Gender Equality. If you are interested to participate in any way, please see below for more information and feel free to contact us. If you know any other person/company/institution that would be interested, please help us to spread the word. If you have decided to sponsor/participate in our event, register on Eventbrite (and donate using Paypal, if applicable). Note that we will have a selection process for mentors and talks, in case we have too many requests. In that case, we will get back to you latest in the beginning of October.

If you are interested in what we have done until now, please have a look at our website or Facebook page.



Talks

We will have one keynote and several normal talk slots. The talks should cover topics in Computer Science and/or Gender Equality. You are also welcome to talk about problems/issues/trends that relate to your company, but please keep in mind that this talk should not be a recruitment talk. Note that we will have a selection process for mentors and talks, in case we have too many requests. In that case, we will get back to you latest in the beginning of October.


Mentor

We will organize a Hackathon similar to our Programming Workshop from last year (see https://www.facebook.com/uuacmw). The idea is to to propose a set of short projects on which participants (mostly students) in groups of 3 to 4 together with their mentors can cooperatively work on. The Hackathon provides an opportunity for students to network, to learn from, and to collaborate with senior developers. In order to support gender equality, we would specifically like to encourage female mentors to participate. Note that we will have a selection process for mentors and talks, in case we have too many requests. In that case, we will get back to you latest in the beginning of October.



Sponsorship

We are offering sponsorship for the event, which guarantees a spot for the expert during the event, independent of the number of signups*. The money will be used to pay for the food, material, room rent and everything else that applies to the celebration. ACM will take care of our finances.

Amount: 500 SEK

Payment information: ACM will take care of the sponsorship for us. Payment via Paypal is accepted.
