On the 9th of April 2015, in Edinburgh, it will be the BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquim’s 8th event. To prepare for this, all women students of computing and related subjects are invited to enter one of the poster competitions. The categories 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 final years).
- 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.
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 Southampton, we’ll pay for 2 nights accommodation, but if you’re coming from Glasgow we’ll only refund your train fare).
