NYUAD Regional Collaborative Workshop on Women in Computing in the Arab World 2013
As a follow-up to the inaugural workshop held in March 2012, this convening aims to design and plan a study on women in computing in the Arab world, which will contribute to the national and international debates on the gender's enrollment in computer science, and more importantly, identify the diverse and important challenges facing women in the field of computing across the region. Prominent regional and international women in computer science, the social sciences, and the humanities discuss the research methodology, theoretical framework, and issues of representations, entrepreneurship, and positive trends as well as difficulties in the IT fields in the Arab world.
