This afternoon, UW will celebrate the Frontiers of Science & Engineering at a symposium presented by UW CSE, ACM-W and the Society of Women Engineers. The symposium will feature members of the UW faculty who have made significant contributions through research and mentorship of other women in the fields of computing, biology, aeronautics and astronautics, electrical engineering, physics, and more.
Professor Magda Balazinska, a member of UW CSE’s Database group and one of the event’s organizers, will kick off a series of talks that includes professor Anna Karlin of UW CSE’s Theory group, who will introduce the audience to algorithmic game theory, and CSE and Genome Sciences professor Su-In Lee, who will talk about her work on machine learning algorithms for precision treatment of cancer. The event was organized by Balazinska, CSE professor Ed Lazowska, CSE and Electrical Engineering professor Josh Smith, and Human Centered Design & Engineering professor and CSE adjunct Julie Kientz.
All are welcome to attend the symposium, which will begin with a reception at 2:30 pm followed by the program at 3:00 pm, in Room 260 of Savery Hall on UW’s Seattle campus.
