BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium 2013

The 2013 BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium will be held on April 4th in Nottingham.

This is the UK’s main event for women undergraduate students of computing. Now
in its 6th year, the day features talks from industry and academia, a
panel-based careers session, stalls from employers, and lots of networking
opportunitites. The centrepiece of the day is a poster contest for women
students allowing you show off your own work and have the chance to win real
prizes. Many poster contest entrants will get their travel refunded by sponsors
(most years we are able to sponsor travel – and accommodation if needed – for
around 40 out of 100+ attendees).

There is also a free lunch, so what are you waiting for! Read on for
more poster contest details…

…The contest in more detail…

All women students of computing and related subjects [1] 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 (this includes those in their third year on four year
courses, and those taking a year in industry- basically it is for those
inbetween their first and final years).

* Best final year undergraduate poster for students in their last
year of study for a BA, BSc, BEng or (this may practically be the
fourth or fifth year, if the student has taken a year abroad or in
industry, or is studying in Scotland where schemes are sometimes longer).

* 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.
