Dones-COEINF and FIB-UPC organize the First Barcelona Grad Cohort Workshop on October 18th and 19th, 2018Friday 29 June 2018
On October 18th and 19th, 2018, the first Grad Cohort Workshop outside the USA will take place in Barcelona, organized by the Facultat d'Informàtica de Barcelona (FIB) of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya and the Comissió de Gènere Dones-COEINF del Col·legi Oficial d'Enginyeria en Informàtica de Catalunya.
This first edition is linked to the act of investiture of Mrs. Margaret Hamilton as doctor honoris causa by the UPC. He was the one who defined the term "software engineering" when working on NASA's Apollo missions.
The Grad Cohort Workshop began in the USA in 2004. They are meetings of women students of master's or doctorate in the field of information technology.
The aim of these meetings is to contribute to the visibility of women in our technological field, to offer the participants the different professional perspectives, to create a networking space and to encourage women not to leave the sector.
If you are a woman and you study a master's degree or do a doctorate in degrees in the field of computing, come to the Barcelona Grad Cohort Workshop. In this first edition only 50 participants will be admitted who will enjoy free of charge all the activities, meals and accommodation at the hotel (in a double room).
We encourage you to participate in this first Grad Cohort Workshop in Barcelona!
