BCSWomen specialist group: Competitions and conferences
BCSWomen contribute to and run a number of special events.
BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium
The BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium is an annual one-day conference for women undergraduates, which moves around the country.
The aims of this event are to support and encourage women and non-binary students, and:
- To provide a forum for undergraduate and masters students 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 undergraduates and masters students about careers in computing from women and non-binary people’s perspectives
Each year we have a great series of talks, and an opportunity for students to discuss their own work in the form of a poster contest, with cash prizes provided by industry sponsors.
