Call for Participation: 2012 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (GHC12)
October 3-6, 2012
Baltimore, Maryland, USA

The 12th annual Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (GHC) has opened its Call for Participation. The annual conference, presented by the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology, is the world's largest gathering of women in computing. The Grace Hopper Celebration will take place from October 3 - 6, 2012 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland. This year's theme "Are We There Yet?" recognizes that technology and the culture of technology are continuously evolving but there are also concrete goals we are striving to achieve.

Submissions on both technical and professional topics are invited. The Grace Hopper Conference committee encourages submissions in line with the theme of the conference "Are we there yet?" in the areas of innovation within a company, from academia, or from individual contributors. Technical submissions that discuss the present and future state of technologies are encouraged. Some examples: Are we there leading technology companies? Are we there creating technology trends? How are we encouraging our girls in Math & Science? Are we there breaking stereotypes?

Submissions are being accepted for:
- Birds of a Feather (BOFs)
- New Investigators Papers
- Panels, Workshops and Presentations
- PhD Forum
- Posters and SRC Posters
- Social Collaboration Track
- Women of Underrepresented Groups Track
