Utah Women in Computing Day

Cecily at Univerisity of Utah has a very good idea of getting the Utah women in computing together. I have put her call for participation below. Anyone interested in joining or sponsoring this event can email cecily[at]cs[dot]utah[dot]edu or

The women in the School of Computing at the University of Utah have recently gotten together a more formally organized group. We thought it would be fun to have a day when all of the women in computing in Utah (at BYU, Utah, and USU) get together to meet and talk. Hopefully, such a day will give people a chance to get to know each other and possibly lay the foundation for future research collaboration. Right now, we envision a Saturday activity at the University of Utah on March 11 between 10-2:30 with a keynote address at 10, breakouts for faculty and grads at 11, lunch at noon, splitting into groups based on research area with everybody doing 5-10 minute research talks at 1, and then whole-group wrap-up at 2. Would you and/or the other women in computing at BYU be interested in this? Could you please send me a possible headcount of interested people and/or e-mail addresses by the middle of next week, so that we can determine if there is enough interest to continue planning the day?
