Exhibition: a celebration of women in computing
Aside from the day full of interesting talks and posters, there will also be an exhibition which portrays twenty women in computing and their most important contributions. During the symposium there will be time to have a look at this exhibition.
Some highlights of the exhibition:
- Grace Hopper who created the world’s first workable compiler.
- Ada Lovelace who is known for her work on the design of the ‘Analytics Machine’, the first ever general-purpose computer, and the first published algorithm.
- Rosalind Picard and her work on Affective Computing which is a combination of Computer Science, Psychology, Physiology and Cognitive Sciences.
- Frances Brazier who helped establish the first Internet Service Provider (ISP) in the Netherlands and Europe.
More information on these and other women can be found at the exhibition. The information about these women will also be printed in a booklet which will be available at the exhibition or have a look at the online version.
