Call for proposals: CEWiT Summit

Monday, November 28, 2016

We are excited to announce that the 4th Annual CEWiT Summit (formerly known as "Techie Women Have More..." Conference) will take place Friday, February 10 and Saturday, February 11, 2017.

The goal of the CEWiT Summit is to provide IU women with the opportunity to learn about & experience technology across a variety of skill levels and disciplines and to help them realize that technology is the catalyst to excellence in every field. The theme for this year's Summit is: Encourage. Empower. Advance. Promote.

CEWiT invites IU students, faculty, staff, alumnae, employers, and community members to submit proposals for sessions (workshops, presentations/talks, or panels) that provide an opportunity for women in the IU community to learn about the use of technology across a broad spectrum of life, school, and work that will appeal to a wide range of technological experience, from beginner to expert. Examples include showcasing apps, tools, or technologies; projects with a technology focus; and panels about what it's like to work in tech. We are also looking for technology skill-building workshops.

Examples of sessions that have be offered in the past can be found in the prior years' schedules:

Each submission will have to identify the audience: 1) faculty and/or staff or 2) students. All sessions for faculty and/or staff will take place in the Indiana Memorial Union on Friday, February 10. All sessions for students will take place Saturday, February 11 in Cedar Hall/Union Street Center.
