Women in Signal Processing

Topic : How to make it professionally and personally

Tuesday, 27 October 2020, 15:00-17:00 (Abu Dhabi local time)

Women in Signal (Image) Processing aims to enhance the experience of women in image processing, and thereby increase the number and impact of women in image processing. We aim to increase awareness and appreciation of women achievements and promote a more gender-balanced research environment in imaging processing. At ICIP 2020, we strive to promote women visibility in image processing and acknowledge their contributions to advancing cutting-edge research in our community.

At ICIP 2020, a panel on “How to make it professionally and personally” will be a lively discussion and a virtual networking opportunity led by 5 highly successful female engineers. The goal of this panel is to learn about the success stories of prominent female scientists and researchers, discuss challenges they met along their career evolution trajectories and how they addressed them. Both men and women are welcome to attend the live session online.

For panel related questions, please contact ICIP Women in Image Processing Co-Chairs:
