UMBC students and faculty proudly participated in the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing Conference. This year was particularly special as the conference was hosted in their hometown of Baltimore. The conference was presented by the Anita Borg Institute in partnership with the Association for Computing Machinery. The annual conference is designed to be the largest venue of its kind for women to come together to celebrate their achievements as well as to network, mentor and collaborate for the purpose of creating more opportunities for women to contribute to and advance the field of computing. The conference bears the namesake of Admiral Grace Murray Hopper, who was a pioneer as a Naval Officer, a mathematician and a computer programmer.
