Girls on ICT Day

Girls on ICT Day

On April 27, 2023, the International Day of Girls in ICT will be celebrated, and as we have been since 2013, we will celebrate it from the Supercomputing Center of Galicia!

That day we will have many activities!

In the morning we will have a colloquium through a web multiconference in which 4 Galician professionals who work daily with technology will participate, who will tell, in a pleasant and detailed way, their career, what they work in, and what technology can contribute in various fields to improve the everyone’s life From primary and secondary schools, girls and boys will be able to send their questions and concerns live to be able to have that direct dialogue with them.

In the afternoon, we will have several technological workshops aimed at girls and boys between 10 and 16 years old at the CESGA, in addition to games and visits to our FinisTerrae III supercomputer. Places will be limited, so don’t leave registration until the last day.

Don’t you know what the International Day of Girls in ICT is? It is an international celebration, aimed at motivating the new generations of girls to consider the field of ICT for their academic, research and professional development. Here is all the information on the international movement.

Participants of the Girls’ Day in ICT 2023 colloquium

This year we will have the honor of having the following Galician ICT referents:

Mariamo Mussa Juane said that she studied physics because she was curious and a doctorate in complex systems physics because she was curious. Both theories came to Santiago de Compostela. A palabra complexidade significa cualidade do enteiramente enredado. An ant, a potato, an earthquake, a cloud, or even a computer, all of them are complex systems. At present, he works at CESGA. He coordinates a quantum computing group, a new computing paradigm based on quantum mechanics. He works on creating quantum algorithms that require new ways of hearing. What does the physics of complex systems have to do with quantum computing?
