This event takes inspiration from Ada Lovelace's legacy and celebrates its impact today with a series of talks that aim at bringing to the foreground the work of many scientists, artists and developers; all of them brilliant woman who take programming and hardware further in novel & unexplored direction, from human-computer interactive technologies, new media art, societal impacts of technology accessibility technologies, creativity support tools, multimedia games, and many other perspectives! With this event we celebrate the legacy of Ada Lovelace, a mathematician and writer who recognized in the 1800s already the full potential of computers, but also wish to bring to the foreground the unmistakable contribution and impact of women in technology, which often historically been pushed to the background.

Our second day features an industry panel with Philippa Ngaju Makobore and Elizabeth Koprucki, focusing on the experiences and contributions of those that shape the future technologies we will see next.
Our third day features an art panel with Ashlyn Sparrow and Snow Xu, focusing on how computing allows new art forms to emerge.
The closing day features an academia panel with Marshini Chetty and Ellen Yi-Luen Do, focusing on the impact and trajectory of scholars in the field of human computer interaction.
