BCS Women Lovelace Colloquium: Thursday 14th April 2011

This annual one-day event is open to all undergraduate AND taught postgraduate women in computing and related disciplines across the UK, and beyond. The day comprises a poster competition for students, speakers from industry and academia, and concludes with a social event.

The event is named after Ada Lovelace (pictured left), a computing pioneer and often considered to be the first programmer.

The aims of this event are:

  • To provide a forum for undergraduate women 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

Programme Now Available!

Previously hosted to great success at the University of Leeds.
In 2010 it was hosted by the School of Computer Science & Informatics, Cardiff University.


The event is FREE for all participants! To take part in the poster competition and book your place, email us now at bcswomenlovelace@gmail.com

We may be able to allow a small number of non-presenting participants. If you are a woman undergraduate in the UK, really do not want to make a poster, but do want to come along, please email bcswomenlovelace@gmail.com and you will be contacted after the end of February 2011.
