ACM NanoCom 2022

Women in ACM/IEEE WICE Luncheon

October 6th, 12:30 - 14:15
Edifici Vertex, Campus Nord UPC

We are excited to invite you to the Women in ACM/IEEE WICE Luncheon at ACM NanoCom 2022! This event is supported by IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) Women in Communications Engineering (WICE). This luncheon event will bring together local and international women researchers at all stages of their careers to foster collaboration, networking, and mentoring. Everyone is welcome to join us!

This event will mark the launch of the Barcelona ACM-W Chapter which supports, celebrates, and advocates for the full engagement of women in all aspects of the computing field.

A roundtable discussion will follow the launch with an esteemed set of speakers at different stages in their careers who will share their experiences on the benefits of networking and how to build your own network. We hope that this event will be an opportunity for junior researchers to start networking and strengthens the efforts for diversity and inclusion in the NanoCom community.

While the details of the final program are still to be finalized, we expect the event to be broken down in two main activities:


  • Inauguration of Barcelona ACM-W Chapter
    Nuria Castell (Chair of Barcelona ACM-W)
    Karina Gibert (Vicechair of Barcelona ACM-W)
  • Roundtable discussion on benefits of networking from personal experiences

    Alba Cervera (Barcelona Supercomputing Center, Spain)
    Karina Gibert (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain)
    Yansha Deng (King’s College London, UK)
    Anna Vizziello (University of Pavia)
