WIT 2020


The Women in Theory (WIT) Workshop is intended for graduate and exceptional undergraduate students in the area of theory of computer science. The workshop will feature technical talks and tutorials by senior and junior women in the field, as well as social events and activities. The motivation for the workshop is twofold. The first goal is to deliver an invigorating educational program; the second is to bring together theory women students from different departments and foster a sense of kinship and camaraderie.

The 7th WIT workshop will take place at  Simons Institute at Berkeley, Jun 16 – 19, 2020.

The workshop is postponed, due to Covid-19. We hope to reschedule it for end of May or beginning of June in 2021. 

Meanwhile, we hosted a virtual event with 100+ students and 20+ current and past speakers on Mother’s Day, May 10, 2020. Check out our song and like it on Youtube!
