She Innovates the Future!
Friday, March 31, 2017 – Saturday, April 1, 2017 Portland, Maine
The goal of the New England Celebration of Women in Computing (NECWIC) is to encourage the participation of women in computing by providing a vehicle for students to explore opportunities in computing, to network with other women from academia, industry, and government, and to facilitate connections and friendships among women in the region who share the same passion for computing. We welcome participants from all of these groups. We welcome all women and allies who recognize the importance of gender diversity in computing.
Code of Conduct
The open exchange of ideas and the freedom of thought and expression are central to ACM’s aims and goals. These require an environment that recognizes the inherent worth of every person and group, that fosters dignity, understanding, and mutual respect, and that embraces diversity. For these reasons, ACM is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for participants at our events, in our programs, and in official communications channels for these events and programs, including social media.
Harassment is unwelcome or hostile behavior, including speech that intimidates, creates discomfort, or interferes with a person’s participation or opportunity for participation, in a conference, event or program. Harassment in any form, including but not limited to harassment based on alienage or citizenship, age, color, creed, disability, marital status, military status, national origin, pregnancy, childbirth—and pregnancy-related medical conditions, race, religion, sex, gender, veteran status, sexual orientation or any other status protected by laws in which the conference or program is being held, will not be tolerated. Harassment includes the use of abusive or degrading language, intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, inappropriate physical contact, sexual imagery and unwelcome sexual attention. A response that the participant was “just joking,” or “teasing,” or being “playful,” will not be accepted. Anyone witnessing or subject to unacceptable behavior should notify a conference committee member.
Individuals violating these standards may be sanctioned or excluded from further participation at the discretion of the organizers or responsible committee.
NECWIC aims to be an accessible and inclusive conference. If you have any questions or concerns about accessibility, or any special requests (such as ASL translation, captioning, etc.), please contact the conference chair at email@example.com, and we will work with you to address your concerns. Note that some requests may require advance notice, so please submit accessibility requests as far in advance of the conference date as possible in order to give us adequate time to prepare.
