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. WCI'22 seeks to give a venue for women researchers to showcase their work in the areas of computing, communication, and informatics.

Thiruvananthapuram (or Trivandrum) is the capital of the southern Indian state of Kerala. Kerala, dubbed "God's Own Country," is located in India's southern tip and is endowed with unique geographical features that have elevated it to one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. Besides its famous languid network of backwaters, sprawling beaches, paddy fields, coconut groves, tea plantations, and elegant houseboats, Kerala is renowned for its delicately flavoured, tongue-tingling delicacies. The state blessed with a serene climate and lush greenery is home to wild elephants, exotic birds, and odd tigers. Additionally, the land is well-known for its cultural heritage, traditional festivals, and snake boat races. Moreover, Kerala is one of the best Ayurveda tourism destinations in India.
