What is MICWIC?

The 5th biennial Michigan Celebration of Women in Computing (MICWIC 2017) is part of a nationwide effort to address the alarming decline of American women choosing computer science professions. In the tradition of prior ACM Celebrations, MICWIC 2017 will focus attention on the research success and career interests of women in computing and information technology. It will bring together students, faculty, and business leaders from across Michigan and neighboring states to discuss the role of women in today's technology fields, share experiences and strategies for success, and explore issues common to women working in these fields.


MICWIC is an ACM Celebration. For more information, contact micwic@acm.org


March 31 to April 1, 2017

MICWIC will be held at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan.
