Distinguished Fellowship Award
This award is given to individuals whose contribution to computing is seen in terms of major importance to the overall development of computing, with substantial personal recognition through peer review over a substantial and sustained career.
Each year, we work with the Conference of Professors and Heads of Computing (CPHC) to award the best UK PhD/DPhil dissertations in computer science, raising the profile of the significant contribution made by postgraduate students in the UK.
If you’re a female postgraduate student, you can apply to take part in the Research Spotlight competition that takes place during the London Hopper Colloquium one-day event. This part of the day acts as a forum with a number of women presenting their work. At the end, three speakers are awarded for their presentations based on both the content and delivery.
