Call for Posters

All women students (Bachelor/Master/PhD) and postdocs of computing and related subjects are invited to enter one of the poster contests during Alice & Eve 2022.
We interpret “related subjects” very broadly – we would like to involve everybody in the area of computing in the broadest sense. If you are not sure, drop the organizers an email and we will probably say yes.

To enter the poster contest, please write a one page abstract (minimum 250 words) on the topic of your poster. Your abstract can be on any computing topic you like, e.g., it can be on a topic from social networking to quantum computing; and from medical image processing to formal verification. If it involves computers, we’re interested.

Please submit your abstracts via EasyChair.
You will receive instructions about your poster with the acceptance notification e-mail.
