Grace Hopper 2010 was the latest in a series of conferences focused on the technical contributions and career interests of women in computer science, engineering, and information technology. Highlights included presentations by female leaders from industry, academia, and government, special sessions on preparing for graduate school, a career fair, and a networking reception at the Georgia Aquarium. The theme of this year's conference was "Computing across Boundaries", and members of Tufts Women in Computer Science (WICS) returned to campus inspired to organize technology outreach events for the community.
