The Second Women’s Workshop on Communications and Signal Processing
The Second Women’s Workshop on Communications and Signal Processing was held in Princeton, NJ from July 16 – 18, 2014.
The workshop was attended by 19 junior and 14 senior participants, and 2 ComSoc staff, coming from the USA, Canada, Turkey, UK, UAE, and Sweden. The junior attendees consisted of 13 graduate students, 4 postdocs, and 2 pre-tenure Assistant Professors.
The 2-day workshop included state-of-the-art technical seminars and career panel discussions by the senior women, poster sessions for the more junior participants, and a panel discussion driven by junior attendees to address their questions regarding career development in both industry and academia, but also mentoring the senior attendees who were looking for shaping the next phase in their career, e.g., advice on promotion to full professor, balancing service and work, and serving in major administrative positions.
