Now in its 15th year, the BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium is a celebration of women in computing and a networking opportunity for women starting out in their careers.
We will have a live keynote from Rebecca George OBE, video talks from women in tech with live Q&A, student poster presentations, employer stands, a careers q&a and plenty of online networking.
This year the entire event will be online; we will be using a combination of platforms including Discord, Teams and gather.town to host the event.
Connection information will be sent to registered attendees before the day.
The event is aimed at women and non-binary undergraduates and taught masters students, but is open to all.
The event is sponsored by Ocado technology, NMI, Amazon, JP Morgan, Oxford University’s AIMS CDT, the Security Services, Airbus UK and AND Digital.
There will be employer stands and recruiters around throughout the day. Any companies wishing to have a presence at the event should contact the organisers on firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will also be a “Skills Buffet” of short talks covering careers and skills matters for those entering industry or academia, such as how to ace an interview, communication skills, and how to get a PhD place.
Our events are for adults aged 16 years and over.
