Completed Projects

Gender x Computer Science. Supporting networking and dialogue in research

Rapid developments in the IT-branch, as well as their multiple effects on the world we humans live in, demands an ever more growing occupation with user appropriate elements of presentation. The Centre for Equal Opportunities in Science and Research at the TU Chemnitz has picked up this topic and developed a project that desensitises computer scientists towards gender and diversity and that supports the integration of gender aspects in the scientific research process. This project also included conscious taking up and reflection of this topic in own projects.

The cooperation partners were TU Bergakademie Freiberg, the TU Ilmenau and the OVGU Magdeburg. The project stretched till May 2018. The goals were to evoke an intense dialogue, the sensitisation of research as well as to improve the research networking between universities and employees and to demonstrate potential and chances of integrating gender aspects into the computer science research.

To be able to achieve the set goals, measures were installed which also included five thematically fitting workshops held on the first and last day of a conference. The participants of these workshops were given selected input to projects and were further educated methodically and subject specifically.
