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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com and you will be contacted after the end of February 2011.
