The not-for-profit Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is calling for women and men to take part in a conference that aims to encourage more females into the industry.

Industry professionals, academics, students and other leaders in computing are invited to present, share and celebrate their technical accomplishments and their experiences of working and studying in computing. The aim is to have a mix of technical presentations and discussions of current issues affecting the industry.

The initiative is being led by conference chairs Eva Navarro Lopez from the University of Manchester and Bev Bachmayer, a software engineer from Intel in Germany. Navarro Lopez, a fellow in hybrid systems and control engineering at the unviersity, is the founder of the executive committee of ACM-Women Europe.

The conference will take place on 1 March 2014 at the School of Computer Science at The University of Manchester, and registration is free for all participants.
