One-day conference for women students of Computing and related subjects

We’re proud to be hosting the colloquium at Edinburgh this year.

The aims of the event are:

  • To provide a forum for women undergraduate and masters students to share their ideas and network;
  • To provide a stimulating series of talks from women in computing, both from academia and industry;
  • To provide both formal (talks) and informal (networking) advice to undergraduate women about careers in computing from a female perspective.

There are poster competitions for women students at all levels of study. Everyone with a poster accepted for the meeting is eligible for travel funding to attend, and there are additional cash prizes from industry sponsors.

The organisers are also looking for students to help coordinate social events. If you don’t want to make a poster but are interested in getting involved then please contact Amy.Guy@ed.ac.uk
