The 12th N2Women Workshop at SIGCOMM'22

N2Women'22 Call for Posters

 

The 12th N2Women workshop (N2Women'22) will be co-located with
SIGCOMM'22 in Amsterdam, Netherlands, in the week of August 22, 2022.

 

N2Women aims to foster professional networking among women in computer networking and related research fields in which women are traditionally underrepresented. The workshop welcomes women, but also men who share the same research interests and face the same career hurdles. The program of the workshop will include keynotes and discussions on careers in networking, but also technical sessions where, in particular, junior researchers are welcome to present their research as poster presentations.

Posters will not be published and can therefore be under submission to other conferences or workshops. Authors of accepted posters will be required to present their work as part of a lightning presentation
session.

The best poster will be awarded a Best Poster Award and runners-up will receive an honorable mention.

Participation and Travel Grants

N2Women is pleased to provide travel grants to its annual workshop and encourages participants to apply. Information about the application process will be provided on the workshop website.
