Women in Theory 2020 Call for Application

The wonderful Women in Theory (WIT) biennial series of workshops started in 2008 and the 7th meeting will take place at   Simons Institute at Berkeley, Jun 16 – 19, 2020. Please see below the call for application.

WIT is one of my favorite (if not the favorite) program in the theory community. Many in our community share my enthusiasm (and theory groups fight for the honor of hosting these meetings). The reactions from past participants leave no room for doubt – this is an important a great and experience. So if you fit the workshop’s qualifications – please do yourself a favor and apply!


The Women in Theory (WIT) Workshop is intended for graduate and exceptional undergraduate students in the area of theory of computer science. The workshop will feature technical talks and tutorials by senior and junior women in the field, as well as social events and activities. The motivation for the workshop is twofold. The first goal is to deliver an invigorating educational program; the second is to bring together theory women students from different departments and foster a sense of kinship and camaraderie.

The 7th WIT workshop will take place at  Simons Institute at Berkeley, Jun 16 – 19, 2020.
