Call for Posters

We invite all female students (Bachelor/Master/PhD) and early career researchers of computing and related subjects (in the broadest sense) to submit a poster.

To enter the poster contest, please write a half-page abstract (maximum 250 words) on the topic of your poster and submit it by 1 October 2023 through EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ae23

Your poster can be on any computing topic you like: from social networking to quantum computing and from medical image processing to formal verification. If it involves computers, we are interested. We welcome you to reuse any existing/published work or poster, no need to print it again.

Notifications will be sent out by 14 October 2023. Selected participants are expected to bring the poster (up to size A0 portrait or A1 landscape) described by their abstract with them to Amsterdam to present during the poster session. At the end of the day, prizes will be awarded for the winning posters in each category.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We look forward to seeing you in Amsterdam!


In addition to the keynote talks and the posters, there will be an exhibition which portrays thirty women in computing and their most important contributions.

Some highlights of the exhibition:

More information on these women, and many others, can be found at the exhibition and the online booklet.
