Today, computers are in everything, everywhere. This fact is making computer scientists and software engineers indispensable because they are the ones leading the way in developing the next generation systems of mobile apps, virtual reality software, and computational biological analysis. They seek to understand society’s needs, and once they do, they create software systems that make a difference for society. As more of the world runs on software the need for these people will only continue to grow.

Eight women in computing go to TRIWiC

Seven Miami students were sponsored to attend TRIWiC—The Tri-State Women in Computing Conference, a bi-annual celebration of women in computing, this past weekend.

With them was Karen Davis, associate professor in the department of computer science and software engineering. They joined 210 others from 19 schools and 24 organizations from Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana.

“It was really affirming to be in a room with so many other women interested in computing,” Davis said.

The students, who were invited to attend through their membership in ACM-W (the club for women computer scientists at Miami), enjoyed technical talks, workshops, industry and grad school panels, and a job fair.

There were also some high-profile guest speakers, including:

  • Liza Mundy, the New York Times bestselling author of Code Girls: The Untold Story of the American Women Code Breakers of World War II
  • Wendy Lea, CEO of Cintrifuse, a public private partnership to develop Cincinnati’s startup community
