CALL FOR STUDENT ABSTRACTS WORKSHOP FOR WOMEN IN MACHINE LEARNING
Co-located with the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing San Diego, California October 4, 2006 Deadline for student abstract submissions: August 15, 2006 INTRODUCTION Machine learning is one of the fastest growing areas of computer science. Search engines, face recognition, DNA sequence analysis, speech and handwriting recognition, credit card fraud detection, premature baby monitoring and autonomous locomotion are just some of the applications in which machine learning is routinely used. Despite the variety of machine learning techniques and applications, the percentage of female researchers is lower than in many other areas of computer science. Most women working in machine learning rarely get the chance to interact with other female researchers, making it easy to feel isolated and hard to find role models. This one day workshop will give female faculty, research scientists, and students in the machine learning community an opportunity to meet, exchange ideas and learn from each other, while providing women in other areas of computer science an opportunity to learn about cutting-edge research in a growing field. Workshop registration is free. Abstract submission deadline: August 15, 2006

SET FOR WORK - A SCHEME TO WORK WITH WOMEN IN SET
Day Event for SET at House of Parliament, Westminster on 12th July 2006 The University of Leicester is working in partnership with the IEEE (UK and RI) Section to develop a mentoring scheme linking female Leicester students and student members of the IEEE to established female engineering professionals. This project is funded by the UK resource center for women in Science, Engineering & Technology (SET). One objective of this scheme is to develop a web-based record of the career paths of potential mentors. If you would be prepared to have your career details published on the web pages of both the IEEE (UK and RI) Section and the Department of Engineering at Leicester, we would be very pleased to receive the information requested on the attached form at your earliest convenience. By submitting this information, you are not making a commitment to becoming a mentor. If you do become further involved with the scheme, the basic expectation would be to attend a session in Leicester and come to an annual one day event. There will also be the opportunity to undertake mentor training if desired. All travel expenses will be reimbursed in full.

REPORT: WOMEN FACE BARRIERS IN SCIENCE ACADEMIES
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, June 29, 2006 -- There is "widespread and persistent" underrepresentation of women in scientific and technical fields, and research institutions don't encourage women or try to eliminate barriers they face when rising to top leadership positions. Those are some of the findings of a new report by the InterAcademy Council (IAC), a global organization created by 90 science academies.

DIVERSITY DEFICIT IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY IDENTIFIED AS "GROWING GAP"AT TOWN HALL
Washington, D.C. (May 22, 2006) DIVERSITY DEFICIT IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY IDENTIFIED AS "GROWING GAP"AT TOWN HALL U.S. Sen. Barack Obama cites need to reverse "long historic discrimination in the area of gender" saying that locking women out of information technology (IT) is "like having one hand tied behind our competitive backs." At the 350-person, first-ever Innovation Town Hall sponsored by the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) at the National Academy of Sciences, every speaker from the federal government, industry, think thanks, non-profits and academia cited the lack of diversity in IT as a major competitive and innovative problem for the U.S. With 50 percent of the professional workforce identified as female in 2004, only 29 percent of the professional IT workforce was female and the numbers are declining.

PART OF THE WOMEN IN INNOVATION AND INVENTION WORKSHOP
Date: Wed 29th November 2006 15:00 Women have been major players in shaping the Information Technology, Electronics and Communications (ITEC) industries through their skills and innovation. Despite this women are currently under-represented in the sector. As a result a range of schemes are in place, for example, to address the needs of women at higher skills levels who have taken a career break, or have experienced a period of unemployment and find the return to the workplace difficult. This workshop will highlight the achievement of women innovators and inventors in the ITEC industries, explore the pleasures and pitfalls of working in the industry, as well as giving practical advice to both those at earlier stages of their careers or returning after career breaks.
