Professor Wendy Hall, in her role as President of the Association for Computing Machinery, will address the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing in Colorado this week.

A number of leading women from industry and academic life will take part in the conference to illuminate the significant role that women play in creating and utilizing technology to improve world conditions.

Wendy Hall will be participating in a panel on European Women in Science and Engineering on Friday 3 October, as well as a session on ACM's Membership Gender Study and how to meet the dynamic needs of women in computing.

Professor Hall took over as President of the ACM earlier this year, the first person from outside North America to be elected President. ACM is the world's largest educational and scientific computing society, uniting computing educators, researchers and professionals to inspire dialogue, share resources and address the field's challenges.

The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women is being held in Keystone, Colorado, from 1 to 4 October.
