The BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium 2017

The BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium 2017 is a free, one day conference for women undergraduates and taught masters students. 2017 will be our 10th event and it will be held in Aberystwyth University.

Abstract submission is now closed: if you want to come along you're welcome to join us, but we're not accepting any more student contest entrants. We had 116 submissions this year which was record breaking. 

All successful poster contest entrants will get to the finals in Aberystwyth, we will pay for your transport, and put you up on the 11th and 12th of April*. On the evening of the 11th, there will be activities including a hackathon, creative coding sessions, and later on a social. On the 12th we will have the main event: talks, student poster contests, careers fair, panel session, free lunch, and far too much cake.
