Fingers crossed for Aga and Tracey at the BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium

Today two Edinburgh Napier computing students are competing for an award at a BCS event at the University of Nottingham.

Two months ago in February 2013 Aga Banach and Tracey Binney responded to a call for students to submit a 250 word abstract for a poster presentation at the BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium.

The colloquium is the UK’s main event for women undergraduate students of computing. Now in its 6th year, the day features talks from industry and academia, a panel-based careers session, stalls from employers, and lots of networking opportunities.

The centrepiece of the event is a poster contest for women students. This gives the delegates a chance to show off their work and to win a prize. Aga and Tracey have already won Google-sponsored places at this event, and are now in for a chance of winning the first year Google Excellence Award.

So today I am keeping my fingers crossed for Aga and Tracey.

Post script: Aga and Tracey weren’t lucky enough to win an award at the colloquium. However, if you read Tracey’s recent blog post, you’ll see that that they very much enjoyed participating at the event.
