New York 2019

8th N2Women Workshop

The eighth N2Women Workshop will take place on November 10-13, 2019,  in conjunction with ACM SenSys 2019 , New York, NY, USA.


N2Women workshop aims to foster connections among the underrepresented women in communications, computer networking, and related research fields. The workshop also welcomes men who share the same research interests, often face similar career hurdles as women, acknowledge underrepresentation of women in the field and believe proactive action is required for improving retention rate.

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.

Posters will NOT be published in the ACM SenSys proceedings and can therefore be work in progress, under submission in other conferences or workshops, or a combination of recently published work.

Authors of accepted posters will be invited to present their work as part of a lightning presentations session, followed by an hour of interactive poster presentation. One poster will be selected for Best Poster Award.

The posters will be judged based on a) technical merit of the poster, b) presentation quality during the lightning talk as well as the poster presentation session. Presenting a poster is a great opportunity to receive interesting and valuable feedback on ongoing research from mentors and a knowledgeable crowd at the workshop.

Travel Grants

Limited number of travel grants are available for students (undergraduate or graduate), postdocs or young professionals who present a poster at this workshop. We will update the details of the travel grants soon.
