Activities, groups and events
The following outlines activities, groups and events the school undertakes:
Women in Computer Science (WICS) group
Our WICS group is made up of staff and students of all levels. Meetings are held throughout term time to discuss issues affecting women in computer science, and to develop departmental strategies to improve the numbers of female students and staff.
Women in Technology (WIT) Conference
Women in Tech is an annual event organised and run by our students to inspire women into technology. Guests are invited free of charge to listen to influential women in technology and partake in workshops throughout the day.
BCS Women's Lovelace Colloquium
We were proud to host this annual conference here at Nottingham's Jubilee Campus in 2013. We continue to contribute to this by providing content from our female staff year on year.
We deal with several initiatives driven by the EU and UK which are emblematic of our ambitions for student recruitment in the School. These include:
Ann Mclaren Fellowships

Women in Computer Science scholarship
Female home/EU undergraduate students who achieved AAA at A level (or equivalent) can apply for a £3,000 scholarship. To be eligible, students need to successfully pass the first year and write an essay titled 'What inspired me to study Computer Science?' We will provide further information in your first year of study.
L'Oreal-UNESCO UK and Ireland Fellowships for Women in Science
The Fellowships are awards offered by a partnership between L'Oréal UK & Ireland, the UK National Commission for UNESCO and the Irish National Commission for UNESCO, with the support of the Royal Society, to promote, enhance and encourage the contribution of women pursuing their research careers in the UK or Ireland in the fields of the life and physical sciences. Five Fellowships will be awarded in 2017 to outstanding women scientists in the early stages of their career to facilitate promising scientific research.
The Fellowships are tenable at any UK or Irish university or research institute to support a 12-month period of early career research in any area of life, physical and computer sciences, engineering and mathematics. Candidates must be female early career researchers who have already been awarded their research doctorate in the fields of life, physical and computer sciences, engineering and mathematics. Candidates must have no more than 10 years' active full-time equivalent postdoctoral experience (discounting career breaks, but including teaching experience and/or time spent in industry).
