"The Grace Hopper Celebration highlights extraordinary women who are successful trailblazers in the technology industry," said Telle Whitney, President and CEO. "Speakers at GHC are from all walks of life, have great, inspirational stories to share, and are thought leaders in computing."

Submissions are desired from areas of technology and professional development. Presenters are encouraged to submit proposals on new technology developments in the areas of Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Internet of Things/Wearable computing, Software Engineering, Data Science, Security, and Gaming/Computer Graphics/Animation (GFX).
