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 includes talks by key speakers and a career panel with members from both academia and industry who share their experiences with the participants.

The 4th Oxbridge Women in Computer Science Conference will take place on the 16th of March 2017 in Oxford, UK. More details can be found on the conference website. For previous editions please see the conference websites for 2016, 2015 and 2014.


Talklets are a series of in-house research talks, taking place once a term. The Talklets series is intended to expose the research done by different groups within the department. Each session typically presents a different research group and includes 2-3 short talks (10-15 minutes long) by its members.

Speaker lunch series

Speaker Lunches are monthly tech events, where we invite a female speaker to come and talk about her work, research, career issues and other interesting and relevant topics. We have a real diversity of speakers including women from academia, industry, start-ups, etc. Examples of previous events include career discussion panels and talks by Google, Microsoft Research, Intel, Cambridge Cell Networks, and many more. Speaker lunches are open to all, and we provide free lunch. For previous talks please see our archive.

Wednesday Seminar Series

The "Wednesday talks" are the department's main seminar series. Please see for more details. These talks are followed by "Coffee and cakes" with the female speakers.

We are always interested in suggestions for speakers, if you have any ideas or would like to volunteer please contact us.
