BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium 2016: Call for abstracts
All women students of computing and related subjects* are invited to enter one of the poster contests at the BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium. The poster contests are as follows:
Best first year poster for students who are in their first year of study at a UK university.
Best second year poster for students in their second year of study at a UK university (also those on an industrial year or 3rd year of a 4 year degree – basically this is for students between their first and final years).
Best final year undergraduate poster for students in their final year of study for a BA, BSc, BEng, or in the penultimate year of an MEng (this will often be the 3rd year, but may be the fourth or fifth year, if the student has taken a year abroad, year in industry, or is studying for a 4 year Scottish degree).
Best Masters student poster for students doing a taught masters degree, or who are in the final year of an MEng or similar integrated 4-5 year course resulting in a masters.
We hope to be able to offer people’s choice prizes as well as first and second place in each category.
To enter the poster contest, write a 250 word abstract on the topic of your poster. The best 50 or so abstracts received will get travel bursaries, meaning that we’ll refund your transport costs, and an overnight stay if that’s necessary for you to attend (for example – if you’re coming from Plymouth, we’ll pay for a nights accommodation, but if you’re coming from Manchester we’ll only refund your train fare).
Abstract submission is now open: women students of computing and related subjects can now submit using the web form. We recommend that you write your 250 word abstract using a text editor or word processor, and then paste it into the form.
The abstract deadline is February 6th 2016.
Note that the event will be in Sheffield on March 31 2016, and if you are selected, you will need to be able to get to the event with your poster in order to compete.
