Dear Dr. Yusubov,


It is our pleasure to inform that your proposal to host the ACM Celebration of Women in Computing: womENcourage 2020 at the ADA University in Baku Azerbaijan has been ranked as the first choice by the womENcourage Steering Committee.


We are impressed with the quality of your proposal and wish to thank you for the care and the effort you put in preparing the proposal. We were particularly pleased that you have secured the support of the Azerbaijan Board of Tourism who will be able to assist with contacting supporters and raising funds for the Celebration.  


We would be pleased to proceed with finalizing the ACM agreement for hosting womENcourage 2020 at the ADA University.  The Steering Committee would like to meet on Skype with the Organizing Committee to confirm details of the event, specifically to finalize dates of the event and to discuss the required ACM policies and procedures listed in the attached document.


We would like to announce womENcourage 2020 at the womENcourage 2019 Celebration in Rome on September 18, 2019. It is expected for at least one representative from the Organizing Committee to attend the last day of the womENcourage 2019 Celebration and give a 5-10 min presentation on the upcoming womENcourage 2020 Celebration, inviting the community to attend.


Congratulations again on your successful proposal. We look forward to working with you to make womECourage 2020 a great success.


Best regards,

Bev Bachmayer

Chair, womENcourage Steering Committee
