Welcome to the West Yorkshire Branch website, serving West and North Yorkshire.
Our mission as BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT (formerly known as British Computer Society), is to enable the information society. We promote wider social and economic progress through the advancement of information technology science and practice.
We bring together industry, academics, practitioners and government to share knowledge, promote new thinking, inform the design of new curricula, shape public policy and inform the public.
We in the West Yorkshire Branch Committee welcome new ideas from members for branch meetings, initiatives or even just a new venue. We try to hold events around the region, having at least one event in Bradford and one event in York each year, with most of our events being in Leeds due to its central location and good public transport links. If you have a burning topic that you'd like to know more about or know a great speaker, please get in touch via the contact us page.
