Fourth Networking Networking Women Workshop – N2Women: Broadening Participation
The fourth N2 Women Workshop will take place on August 17, 2014.
The workshop will be co-located with ACM SIGCOMM in Chicago, Illinois.
The main goal of N2 Women is to foster connections among the under-represented women in computer networking and related research fields. In the 4th N2Women Workshop, we welcome under-represented men who share the same research interests, attend the same conferences, and often face the same career hurdles and obstacles to join us!
We are pleased to announce this year’s keynote speakers:
Senior Scientist, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Lead Member of Technical Staff,
Panel: From Student to PI – Becoming an Independent Researcher
University of Washington
Panel: Taking on Professional Service and Leadership Roles
Northeastern Illinois University
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory,
University of California, Berkeley
Best poster awards
The poster award committee was delighted to select four posters to receive a $400 prize generously offered by HP Labs! The competition was hard and we thank all participants for their work.

N2 Women will have a mentor/mentee program. We would like to extend mentoring throughout the week for the students who are staying for SIGCOMM. In this case, we are hoping to find mentors who can host mentees with similar research interests during the main SIGCOMM conference and workshops. If you are a SIGCOMM regular attendee and a senior researcher, please consider volunteering as a mentor. If you are interested in helping out, please email one of the mentoring session organizers below:

Call for posters
Posters are solicited for research related to any aspect of networking and communications. All researchers in the networking and communications fields are welcome to submit their work for presentation at this workshop. Each poster abstract will be reviewed by members of the TPC. Posters will not be published and hence can be under submission for other conferences or workshops. Two posters will be selected to receive a best poster award generously sponsored by Hewlett Packard Laboratories. Students are also encouraged to apply for travel grants to attend the workshop.
Each submission should be formatted as an extended abstract, describing the research to be presented in the poster. The length of the extended abstract should be at most TWO pages (formatted into the US letter size of 8.5 × 11 inches with fonts no smaller than 10 point size,in a single-column format ), including all figures and references. The extended abstract must include the names, affiliations and email addresses of all authors and should be submitted as a single PDF file to EasyChair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=n2w2014
