On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to invite you to *save the date* for the second Women in Computational Topology Workshop! WinCompTop 2 will take place from 1-5 July, 2019 at Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra, Australia. Further details are still pending, but we are reaching out now to inform the community of this exciting event next year. We will be applying for funding to hopefully provide some support for participants’ travel.
The idea behind this workshop, similar to its predecessor, is to bring women at various stages of their career together to begin work on a project in computational topology as posed by a senior group leader. The week at ANU will provide the foundation for this collaboration which will hopefully extend past the workshop as happened after WinCompTop1 (https://www.ima.umn.edu/2015-2016/SW8.15-19.16). This model has also worked very well for a number of other groups, including Women in Numbers (WiN), Women in Topology (WiT), and Women in Shape Analysis (WiSH), among many others.
Applications will open sometime in the 2018-19 academic year. In the meantime, please save the date!
All the best,
Ellen Gasparovic, Vanessa Robins, and Kate Turner
