The BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium is an annual one day conference for women students of Computing and related subjects. The event started in 2008, and moves around the country – in 2018 it will be at Sheffield University on March 28th. You can find out all about the 2018 colloquium on this site – we’re currently finalising the speaker lineup and you can now submit an abstract.
The aims of this event are:
- To provide a forum for undergraduate women and masters students to share their ideas and network
- To provide a stimulating series of talks from women in computing, both from academia and industry
- To provide both formal (talks) and informal (networking) advice to undergraduate women about careers in computing from a female perspective
Each year we have a great series of talks, and an opportunity for students to discuss their own work in the form of a poster contest, with cash prizes provided by industry sponsors. Google have sponsored all events to date, enabling us to cover the travel costs (and overnight accommodation if necessary) for all students in the poster contest, and other industrial and academic bodies have provided additional sponsorship covering prizes and lunch.
You can see details of previous events including lists of prizewinners here: Previous Conferences
