The W@POPL dinner aims to connect women PL faculty, post-docs and students. It is intended to celebrate achievements, small and big, and provide a low-pressure atmosphere to foster building one’s support group.
In particular, we aim to:
Increase the feelings of community and belonging, especially among junior faculty, post-docs and students through positive interactions with peers and more established faculty
Establish new connections and collaborations
Create a culture of support, growth, and welcoming in the programming languages research community.
This will be the first time W@POPL networking dinner will be held on Thu, 23 January, 2020. We are delighted to announce that Kathleen Fisher (Tufts University) has agreed to give a short talk (TBA) and followed by a Q/A! You can sign up for the networking dinner when registering for POPL. The event is generously supported by Facebook.
