Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing

Opening tomorrow, October 1, is the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing conference. The four day event brings together computer scientists from industry, academia and the government for technical presentations, discussions of the role of women in technology fields and networking. This year's keynote speakers are Fran Allen, an IBM Fellow Emerita and Turing Award Winner and Mary Lou Jepsen, the CEO of Pixel Qi and founding chief technology officer of One Laptop Per Child.

This being a meeting of computer professionals, it's not surprising that there are a number of official online tools for presenters and participants to share their experiences with each other and the world at large.
