N^2 Women (Networking Networking Women) Luncheon

The N^2 Women (Networking Networking Women) luncheon is an informal gathering intended to foster a sense of community by providing an opportunity for those interested in women's issues to meet, network, and share stories/advice. Especially important will be the connections made between students and researchers, which will promote the benefits of a research career. The luncheon will be held at the Hyatt Regency Reston on Tuesday, September 26 from 12:30-2 P.M. The luncheon is free if the participant is registered for the SECON main conference and $25 otherwise (i.e., only registered for a workshop or tutorial), payable by cash, check or credit card at the time of registration.

This luncheon is open to all who are interested in issues pertaining to women in the field of networking. If you would like to attend, please email Wendi Heinzelman at by September 20. We hope you will join us at SECON for this luncheon!

Background on N^2 Women

The first meeting of N^2 Women was held during the MobiHoc conference on May 24th, 2006 in Florence, Italy. This event was attended by the majority of the women attendees of MobiHoc, as well as a few men interested in issues pertaining to women in the communications and networking fields. We have created an email list for the N^2Women group,, which we use to foster connections among women in communications and networking. If you are interested in joining this community of networking women, or if you would like to help organize an N^2Women get-together at a conference you will be attending, please email We hope you will join us at a future N^2Women event!
