Barna Saha, Sofya Raskhodnikova and Virgi Vassilevska Williams are organizing a women’s event to take place during STOC this year. It will include a women’s lunch, a panel of senior female researchers and more.
In addition, they have secured funding to provide travel scholarships for women to attend STOC, hopefully being able to bring junior graduate students who may not have a paper to the conference. The overall goal is to increase the interest and participation of women in TCS.
Here is the website for the event:
