Welcome to WCI 2018!
Women represent approximately 51% of the total population. Over the course of history, the demographics of the workforce have changed significantly. Women continue to advance, holding important roles and positions in both academia and industry. Although progress has been made, the precipitous journey is not yet complete. Global concerns about current and future roles of women in computing occupations gained more importance with the emerging information age.
