Welcome to WiSMC 2019
The First International Day of Women in Inclusive Engineering, Sound and Music Computing Research will take place in Malaga on May 28, 2019 at the E.T.S.I. Telecomunicacion, Málaga.
This day is specially addressed to pre-university students between 15 and 17 years old that have to decide what they want to study after finishing high shool. We want both girls and boys to be aware that they can study anything they want and engineering is a good option no matter if you are a woman or a man. You only have to like it!
Nowadays, there are many people, men and women, who due to different reasons have certain prejudices regarding what a woman can or cannot do. It is necessary to make all women and men conscious of the fact that women can develop a successful professional career, without having to renounce being mothers and having a family.
Therefore, the aim of this First International Day of Women in Inclusive Engineering, Sound and Music Computing Research is to realize that it is necessary that both women and men work in collaboration, supporting each other, so that we all can reach fulfillment as individuals. Moreover, this approach can be extrapolated to anyone, regardless of their age, sexual orientation, race, religion, etc.
With this goal in mind, women with successful professional careers who have also formed a family will be invited to tell their life experience. Thus, girls, young women, and all the assistants will realize that women do not have to give up anything and that, with the adequate support from the rest of society, it is possible to achieve any kind of goal.
