COAR members attend Grace Hopper

The COAR team’s Jennifer Fowler and Amanda Joyce will be presenting on their poster at Grace Hopper on October 4, 2017 in Orlando, Florida. The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing is the world’s largest gathering of women technologists. It is produced by the Anita Borg Institute and presented in partnership with ACM.[1]

The poster entitled, “Argonne National Laboratory’s Cyber Defense Competition – Defending Tomorrow’s Infrastructure Today” looks to highlight the gender gap in cyber security and computer science and how Argonne’s Cyber Defense Competition is hoping to help females become more aware of the many different paths of cyber security through a hands-on defense approach.

Below is a preview of the poster being presented at Grace Hopper.

The Cyber Defense Competition Committee is excited to announce a partnership with two other National Laboratories: Pacific Northwest and Oak Ridge in order to expand this competition. Please stop by the booth and get to learn about the upcoming competition. Interested in learning more about how the National Laboratory competition is different from others, check out the Cyber Defense Competition Slick Sheet to see how we make this competition unique. There are many types of opportunities to be a part of the competition, from competing on a team to volunteering your time.
