ACM Celebration of Women in Computing: womENcourage 2018

Belgrade, Serbia September 2018

Join us in beautiful Belgrade, Serbia where the Sava and Danube rivers meet, for three days of technical discussions, making new friends and networking at ACM Celebration of Women in Computing: womENcourage 2018!

Belgrade is the capital of Serbia and one of the biggest cities in South Eastern Europe. It is also a city of youth with more than a 40% young people living in it. Belgrade stands between East and West for centuries and has a very turbulent history. Influences of many different cultures are still present in almost every part of the city and its spirit. The historic areas and buildings of Belgrade are among the city’s primary attractions. Annually, Belgrade hosts many international events, and it will be a pleasure for the local ACM-W chapter to host the next Womencourage conference!

Since 2016, an AMC-W chapter is active in Belgrade. A small, but a very dedicated group of people with various educational and professional backgrounds is organizing Belgrade’s ACM-W celebration, different coding workshops, and lectures during the year. With a strong mission to include and support the development of girls and women in ICT, the local chapter is having a big plan for the next year, and Womencourage is certainly a great part of it.
