Colloquium 2020

The BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium is a free, one day conference for women undergraduates and taught masters students.

2020 will be our 13th event and it will be held in the University of Stirling. We had over 110 submissions last year!

Key information

Abstract submissions are now open. See the Abstract Submissions page for more info and a link to our online submission form.

  • The date: Wednesday 8th April, 2020
  • The venue: University of Stirling
  • The abstract deadline: Friday 31st January 2020 (23:59)

All successful poster contest entrants will get to the finals in Stirling, we will pay for your transport, and put you up for one or two nights* (7th and/or 8th of April, depending on your transport requirements). On the 8th we will have the main event: talks, student poster contests, careers fair, panel session, free lunch, and far too much cake.

General Registration

The colloquium is open to all (yes, even if you just want to visit!), and free – you have to sign up online first though. General registration will open shortly after the abstract deadline closes.
