About the conference

We are delighted to announce the 4th Oxbridge Women in Computer Science Conference, to be held on March 16th, 2017, at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Oxford, UK. The Oxbridge Women in Computer Science Conference is an annual conference that aims to bring together junior and senior female computer scientists at Cambridge and Oxford, encourage collaboration through formal and informal discussion, and give a perfect opportunity for young researchers to present their research and get valuable feedback in a very open, friendly and informal environment.

The conference will include talks by key speakers and a career panel with members from both academia and industry who will share their experiences with the participants. This year's conference has been made possible through the generous sponsorship of Google.

All students, faculty and staff members of the department are welcome to attend the conference. There is no registration fee for the conference, and snacks, lunch and a conference dinner at St John's College will be provided free of charge. The deadline for registration is March 1st, 2017. Coach transportation will be provided free of charge for all participants traveling from Cambridge.

Current female undergraduate, MPhil/MSc, PhD/DPhil students, RAs and PostDocs are encouraged to submit their past and current work in any area of Computer Science. We accept abstract submissions (up to 1 page) for presentations, posters and lightning talks. The deadline for submission is February 6, 2017 . Presentations will be 10 minutes long while posters can be up to size A1. Lightning talks are short one minute talks, also known as ''minute madness'', that present early research ideas and work in progress in a short and concise way (a past example). Each abstract will be reviewed by members of the TPC, rejected presentations may be offered a poster slot. There are no proceedings for the conference, and hence posters can be under submission for other conferences or workshops.

To register attendance or submit your abstract, please see the registration and abstract submission guidelines.

We hope that you will join us for this wonderful conference, which will help create connections between female computer scientists in Cambridge and Oxford!
