Women in Computing event next week! http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/node/284 <p>Who are Your Heroes?</p> <p>Date - Time: 11 February 2015 – 6.30pm to 8:30pm</p> <p>Place: University of Calgary, EEEL 161</p> <p>There is a significant gender gap in the field of computing - women are disproportionately underrepresented in the field: in the classroom, in industry, and in leadership roles. Anita Borg’s life mission was to reduce this gap, because she believed women should have an equal impact on the technology which is prominent in our everyday lives. Now a community of women who have been inspired by her legacy is taking her mission worldwide. Our “Who are your heroes?” networking event on February 11, 2015 is part of a global series of events celebrating Anita Borg’s vision, and asks our participants to talk about prominent Canadian women in the field of computing. Join us for networking, conversation about our role models and heroes, and for light refreshments.</p> <p>Registration: <a href="http://www.eventbrite.com/e/women-in-computing-who-are-your-heroes-tickets-15579081452?aff=eivtefrnd" title="http://www.eventbrite.com/e/women-in-computing-who-are-your-heroes-tickets-15579081452?aff=eivtefrnd">http://www.eventbrite.com/e/women-in-computing-who-are-your-heroes-ticke...</a></p> <p><a href="mailto:anita.borg.yyc@gmail.com">anita.borg.yyc@gmail.com</a></p> <p>Anita Borg Alumni Community</p> http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/node/284#comments Tue, 03 Feb 2015 21:17:06 +0000 csgs 284 at http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca End Of Semester Party of Winter 2014 http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/node/283 <p>CSGS is pleased to announce that we will be holding an End of Semester<br /> Party on Tuesday April 15th at 4:00pm in ICT 516.</p> <p><span class="inline inline-center"><img src="http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/system/files/images/EndOfSemesterParty2014-2.preview.jpg" alt="End Of Semester Party" title="End Of Semester Party" class="image image-preview " width="495" height="640" /><span class="caption"><strong>End Of Semester Party</strong></span></span></p> <p>Come and celebrate the end of another semester and the start of summer with all of your friends while enjoying some delicious Italian cuisine from Lina's!</p> <p>All CPSC graduate students, post-docs, faculty and staff are welcome<br /> and we hope to see you all there.</p> <div class="image-clear"></div> http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/node/283#comments Wed, 09 Apr 2014 18:08:59 +0000 csgs 283 at http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca Third Annual CPSC Curling Party http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/node/281 <p>Registration is now open for the Third Annual CPSC Curling Party!</p> <p>The event is scheduled for Sunday April 13th from 3:00pm to 5:00pm at the Calgary Curling Club with a dinner afterwards consisting of veggie lasagna.</p> <p>There is only room for 32 participants and since it fills up fast be sure to get your name and $5 to Erin Moloney as soon as possible.</p> <p>- CSGS Exec.</p> http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/node/281#comments Social Mon, 24 Mar 2014 17:58:37 +0000 csgs 281 at http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca CSGS Food Drive 2013 Box Locations http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/node/280 <p><span style="line-height: 1.22;">For those of you hunting for your box for the </span><a href="http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/node/277" style="line-height: 1.22;">2013 <span data-scayt_word="CSGS" data-scaytid="1">CSGS</span> Food Drive</a><span style="line-height: 1.22;">.

The Campus food bank works to help people in the campus community who find themselves in emergency need of food and other necessities of life. Each year CSGS and the rest of the Department of Computer Science work together to gather shelf-stable non-perishable items for donation.</p> <p><span class="inline inline-center"><img src="http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/system/files/images/poster_0.preview.png" alt="CSGS Food Drive 2013" title="CSGS Food Drive 2013" class="image image-preview " width="509" height="640" /><span class="caption"><strong>CSGS Food Drive 2013</strong></span></span></p> <p>The Food Bank Drive is also a chance for the different labs a chance for some friendly competition. Based on the need expressed by the Campus Food Bank different items have been assessed different point values (see the table below). Each lab will receive a total number of points based on their donations and the lab that receives the highest total number of points will win the right to have their name carved onto the coveted "Soup Can Cup".</p> <p>Boxes for the Food Bank Drive have been distributed to each lab. Exact locations will be provided on the CSGS website (csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca), if you are unsure where your box is contact your CSGRC labrep or your nearest CSGS Executive (or just hunt around). If you have any other questions please contact <a href="mailto:csgs@cpsc.ucalgary.ca">csgs@cpsc.ucalgary.ca</a>.</p> <p>The points for each type of item are as follows:</p> <p>Points Items<br /> 5 Feminine hygiene products, Canned Meat (ham, turkey, chicken), Canned Fish, Pasta and pasta sauce<br /> 4 Toiletries (i.e. toothpaste, bar soap), Canned beans, Canned fruits and vegetables<br /> 3 Cereal/oatmeal, Meal helpers (i.e. Sidekicks, Hamburger Helpers, etc.), Canned pasta (i.e. Chef Boyardee)<br /> 2 Dry soup (i.e. Mr. Noodles, Ichiban noodles, etc.), Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate, Gluten-free/veggie products, Rice, Dried Lentils<br /> 1 Other Usable Shelf Stable Items<br /> -2 First Expired / Opened Package<br /> -6 Subsequent Expired / Opened Packages</p> <p>To be donated to the Campus Food Bank, items must be UNOPENED (in effect, in their retail state), UNEXPIRED (before their best before dates), SHELF-STABLE food or toiletries. Unusable items will be counted against your labs total and reduce your overall score. For scoring, we will consider bulk version items to be equivalent to multiples of smaller versions, for example a 1kg package of pasta would be counted the same as 2, 500g packages of pasta. Keep in mind however that smaller packages allow the food bank more flexibility when they are putting together their hampers.</p> <p>The boxes will be collected on Friday, December 6, 2013. Once collected, the points will be tallied, our donation will be taken to the Campus Food Bank and the winning lab will be announced. The Soup Can Cup will be awarded at an event in January.</p> <p>Thank you all, in advance, for helping to make a great contribution on behalf of CSGS.</p> <p>The CSGS exec.</p> <div class="image-clear"></div> http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/node/277#comments Mon, 25 Nov 2013 22:46:22 +0000 csgs 277 at http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca Halloween Pumpkin Carving Contest and Party Images http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/node/258 <p><span class="inline inline-left"><a href="/node/250"><img src="http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/system/files/images/IMG_1020.thumbnail.JPG" alt="Halloween 2013 groups 1-3: Spooky!" title="Halloween 2013 groups 1-3: Spooky!" class="image image-thumbnail " width="100" height="75" /></a><span class="caption" style="width: 98px;"><strong>Halloween 2013 groups 1-3: </strong>Spooky!</span></span><span class="inline inline-left"><a href="/node/251"><img src="http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/system/files/images/IMG_1021.thumbnail.JPG" alt="Halloween 2013 groups 4 &amp;amp; 5: Goblins!" title="Halloween 2013 groups 4 &amp;amp; 5: Goblins!" class="image image-thumbnail " width="100" height="75" /></a><span class="caption" style="width: 98px;"><strong>Halloween 2013 groups 4 &amp; 5: </strong>Goblins!</span></span><br /> <span class="inline inline-left"><a href="/node/252"><img src="http://csgs.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/system/files/images/IMG_1022.thumbnail.JPG" alt="Halloween 2013 groups 6: Rats!
