The Lovelace Colloquium is now live for student submissions.

We are pleased to announce that the 2017 BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium
is now open for student abstract submissions. This event is aimed at
women students studying for degree-level computing qualifications in
the UK.

This year is our 10th event, and we will be in Aberystwyth on the 12th
of April. To celebrate 10 years of the Lovelace we are having a bigger
show, and will provide all successful poster contest finalists with 2
nights accommodation (11th and 12th April) as well as a refund of
reasonable travel costs*. The night of the 11th there will be some fun
activities (hackathon, creative coding session, social) for those who
wish to take part.

We have separate poster contests for different groups of women
students – broadly speaking, these are
– First year and foundation year
– Second year, industrial placement, and any other non-finalists on
BSc programs
– Final year BSc/BEng/etc, which also includes those in the
penultimate year of an integrated MEng or similar
– MSc, which also includes those in the final year of an integrated
MEng or similar

To enter the contest, students need submit a 250 word abstract on the
computing topic of their choice, deadline February 17.

All information, including submission form, FAQ, and so on can be found at
