The BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium #BCSLL16

31st March 2016 hosted at Sheffield Hallam University


  1. The BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium is a national one-day conference for women students of computing and related disciplines. The aim of the event is to bring women students from around the UK together for networking, talks, and career development advice from successful women in computing. We have speakers from both industry and academia, and a poster contest for the students to show off and talk about their own work.
  2. The BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium founder and chair is Hannah Dee. The lead organiser at the hosting venue this year was Deborah Adshead.

  3. The event is generously supported by sponsors so BCS Lovelace are able to keep the event free for all who want to attend, and also pay the transport for all women who get into the poster contest.
