BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium 2021

The BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium is a free, one day conference for women undergraduates and taught masters students hosted by Lancaster Uni.

About this Event

Now in its 14th year, the BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium is a celebration of women in computing and a networking opportunity for women starting out in their careers.

We will have a live keynote from Professor Dame Sue Black, video talks from women in tech with live Q&A, student poster presentations, employer stands, a careers q&a and plenty of online networking.

This year the entire event will be online; we will be using a combination of platforms including Discord, Teams and gather.town to host the event.

Connection information will be sent to registered attendees before the day.

The event is aimed at women undergraduates and taught masters students, but is open to all.
