Distributed Computing Theory, Old and New
The 2010 ”Women in Theory” workshop was hosted by Princeton's Center for Computational Intractability and is intended for graduate and undergraduate students working in theoretical computer science. It features technical talks and tutorials by senior and junior women in the field.
The motivation for the workshop was two-fold: to deliver an invigorating educational program and to bring together women from different departments in order to foster a sense of kinship and camaraderie.
The workshop features a keynote by Princeton University President and distinguished biologist Shirley M. Tilghman on "The Role of Women in the Sciences.” It also features a keynote by Newsweek's Jesse Ellison on "The State of Women in the Workplace."
