About WiCS
Women in Computer Science (WiCS) was formed by female undergraduate students at Brown in the late 1980s as an affinity group of Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE). The goal of WiCS is to increase the participation of women in the field of Computer Science. WiCS works to this end through its social, mentoring and outreach programs.

WiCS is responsible for organizing social events for women in the department to meet and get to know each other. Often these events include invited guests such as women from industry and academia.

As part of its outreach program, WiCS supports the Artemis Project, a free summer camp for rising ninth-grade girls from the Providence area who show interest in science and technology.

The current WiCS coordinators are Miranda Chao and Sarita Ballakur. If you'd like to reach them, you can email the coordinators at wics@lists.cs.brown.edu.
