CRA-W Borg Early Career Award
The Committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research (CRA-W) is now accepting nominations for the 2010 Borg Early Career Award (BECA). The award honors the late Anita Borg, who was an early member of CRA-W and an inspiration for her commitment in increasing the participation of women in computing research.
The annual award is given to a woman in computer science and/or engineering who has made significant research contributions and who has contributed to her profession, especially in the outreach to women. This award recognizes work in areas of academia and industrial research labs that has had a positive and significant impact on advancing women in the computing research community and is targeted at women that are relatively early in their careers (no more than 8 years past the Ph.D.).
The deadline for nominations is February 15, 2010. For more information about this award and nomination instructions, visit: http://www.cra-w.org/borg.
