Celebration Mission

This conference serves as an extension of the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) of Women in Computing celebrations. KYCC-WiC is the first community college centered regional conference. Our goal is to continue the primary mission of ACM while reaching out to the community college family. This family is intended to include faculty, students, and businesses that rely on the community colleges to prepare women for today’s technology fields.

This conference will be a place where our community can collaborate, network and celebrate the contributions of women in computing.

Call for Posters

Open to All Students - Proposals Required

Students are encouraged to submit posters on research, class projects, internships, community service, and experiential learning activities. Poster sessions allows students to discuss their work with conference attendees in a very informal setting. The goal is for students to gain experience and confidence in public speaking while sharing their work. Students teams (1-5 students) may present a poster proposal.


Posters should be no larger than 24”x36”. Community College and University posters will be judged separately. For tips on preparing a conference poster visit: Poster Design Tips
