Lovelace Colloquium Poster Competition 2015

29 January 2015 — Women studying computer science are invited to take part in the 2015 Lovelace Colloquium poster contest with a chance to win cash prizes and possibly be talent spotted for a job. The contest is part of BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium, an annual one day conference for women students of Computing and related subjects.

 

Event organiser, Hannah Dee, BCSWomen, explains: “The aim of the Lovelace Colloquium is to give women students - many of whom are used to being "the only female in the class" - an opportunity to network with each other, to ask questions about women in tech careers, and also to see a range of talks by women who are further on in the career pipeline.”

 

As part of the day, a poster contest is held for students attending the event. The contest is an opportunity for students to showcase their own work to each other and to recruiters.

 

Hannah continues: “There are many good reasons for women students to enter the BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium poster contest. As well as a range of cash prizes, the event also gives you an opportunity to talk to and network with other people, and could even lead to a job as recruiters and talent spotters will be attending the event. We will have talks from women in computing (industry and academia), the poster contests, lots of networking time, a panel session on careers, and stalls from employers. The day will be open to general attendees too.”

 

All women studying computer science or any related subject (information systems, information technology, cognitive science, electronic engineering) are encouraged to enter the contest by writing an abstract and submitting it online. The deadline for abstract submissions is the 28th February 2015. The BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium takes place at The University of Edinburgh on 9 April.
