Women represent approximately 51% of the total population. Over the course of history, the demographics of the workforce have changed significantly. Women continue to advance, holding important roles and positions in both academia and industry. Although progress has been made, the precipitous journey is not yet complete. Global concerns about current and future roles of women in computing occupations gained more importance with the emerging information age. The Seventh International Symposium on Women in Computing and Informatics (WCI'20) is co-affiliated with the Fourth International Conference on Computing and Network Communications (CoCoNet'20), October 14-17, 2020, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. The Symposium aims to provide a forum for women researchers to present their work in the emerging areas of computing, communication, and informatics. WCI'20 is technically supported by ACM Chennai Professional Chapter and IEEE Toronto Women in Engineering.
