Jannat Tumpa Attends Grace Hopper 2018 on Scholarship

Tumpa_GHCUbicomp Lab member, Jannat Tumpa received Student Scholarship to attend Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC) on Sep 26-28, 2018 at Houston, Texas. The Grace Hopper Celebration is the world’s largest gathering of women technologists organized by Anita Borg Institute in partnership with ACM which takes place every year to encourage more women in technology and to reduce the gender disparity in the tech field. Among 22,000 people attending GHC this year, only 867 students received the scholarship from across the globe. The experience of GHC helped Jannat to broaden her vision about her career by attending various keynote and technical sessions, to make lots of new networks in the career expo organized by 200+ sponsor companies and to know more about current ongoing research from the poster sessions.
