The BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium 2016 is now open for abstract
submission on the following link:
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
- 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 2 nights accommodation,
but if you're coming from Manchester we'll only refund your train fare).
Once you have written your abstract, please copy and paste it into the
form which you can find here:
The deadline for abstract submissions is the 6th February 2016.
