CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: BSC Women Lovelace Colloquium 2017, 12 Apr 2017, Aberystwyth, WALES

(DEADLINE: 17:02:2017)

All women students of computing and related subjects(1) are invited to 
enter one of the poster contests at the BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium.

Your abstract can be on any computing topic you like. We've had 
submissions on everything from social networking to quantum computing; 
from medical image processing to wearables (complete with an arduino 
powered skirt). If it involves computers, we're interested. If you aren't 
sure what a 250 word abstract looks like, we have some samples of 
abstracts from previous years.

The poster contests are as follows:

Best first year poster for students who are in their first year of study 
at a UK university. This category is also open to students in a Foundation 

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 

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. We hope to be able to offer people's choice prizes 
as well as first and second place in each category.

To enter the poster contest, you will have to write a 250 word abstract on 
the topic of your poster.

Abstract submission is now open! To enter, please submit your 250 word 
abstract here:

by the deadline of February 17th.

(1) We interpret "Related subjects" very broadly - in the past, we have 
had students following courses in computer arts, cognitive science, 
information systems, and a large number of different joint/major/minor 
programmes of study. If you're not sure, drop the organisers an email on, we'll probably say "yes".
