Colloquium 2024: Liverpool

The 2024 BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium will be on April 4th at the University of Liverpool.


University of Liverpool

University of Liverpool

The main venue will be the University of Liverpool, in the Central Teaching Hub.

We’ll have a social the night before (on the 3rd) in the venue “Leaf”, on Bold Street, which has a lovely large upstairs space that is accessible and airy. We’ll have some kind of interactive event – maybe a quiz – to help people relax and get to know each other before the big day.

Taking part

The event is open to all, although you have to register. The poster contests are open to women and non-binary students studying computing (BSc or MSc) in the UK. Students who want to take part in the poster contests will be have to submit a 250 word abstract. We usually accept about 125 posters, based on these submitted abstracts, and our call for abstracts will open in November.

If you want to be first to find out about our call for abstracts or our registration opening up, we have a “Google Group” for announcements which you can sign up to email alerts.

We support student attendees in a lot of ways and one of these is to ensure those travelling from farther afield have accommodation – in 2024, our accommodation will be a Travelodge hotel near the station. We’ve already booked a LOT of rooms (80).
