About

  • UU ACM-W, a student chapter at Uppsala University is promoting gender equality in Computer Science and Information Technology.
  • This fall, 17-18 November, we are going to organize the Ada Lovelace Celebration in Uppsala, a two-day event aiming to bring together tech-interested people and companies from the area.
