The panel members and the facilitator just came back from the 6th Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (GHC 06). "The conference is designed to bring the research and career interests of women in computing to the forefront. Presenters are leaders in their respective fields, representing industrial, academic and government communities. Leading researchers present their current work, while special sessions focus on the role of women in today's technology fields." Keynote speakers included the president of Princeton and the first American female astronaut. The panel members will share their experience attending the conference, show cool pictures and freebies, and discuss their thoughts on the general issue of women in computer science.

The team's travel to the conference was generously supported by the UIC Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) and the Department of Computer Science.
