CEOS.PP's researcher Mariana Curado Malta attended, in Norway in September, a pre-conference event womENcourage.
As part of the womENcourage digital conference, the Norwegian city of Tromsø hosted a pre-event with CEOS.PP researcher Mariana Malta, who attended as a guest speaker in one of four workshops that were held in parallel.
This was a celebration of women in computer science, organized by the research projects Better Balance in Informatics (UiT) and IDUN (NTNU).
The theme of this pre-event mainly discussed the importance of recruiting more and better in Computer Science, without the gender stigma.
The womENcourage Conference is the 8th ACM Celebration of women in computer science, and this year it was held remotely from Prague.
