University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory, March 10th 2016

Call For Papers, Posters and Lightning Talks


Current female Undergraduate, MPhil/MSc, PhD/DPhil students, RAs and PostDocs are encouraged to submit short abstracts (up to 1 page) for presentations or posters on their topic of research. Posters are solicited for research related to any aspect of Computer Science. Abstracts should be sent to and also include the name, affiliation and position of the applicant.The deadline for submission is 15th of February 2016.

Each presentation and poster abstract will be reviewed by members of the Technical committee. Rejected presentations may be offered a poster slot. There are no proceedings for the conference, and hence presentations and posters can be under submission for other conferences or workshops. All accepted submissions will be assigned mentors, who will provide feedback on the presentation/poster.

Only members of Cambridge Computer Laboratory and Oxford Computer science department are invited to submit an abstract for a presentation, but we welcome posters and lightning talks from female researchers in related fields.

Lightning Talks

Lightning talks are short one minute talks, also known as "minute madness", presenting early research ideas, work in progress as well as completed work, in a short and concise way (a past example). This year we introduce separate tracks for undergraduate, postgraduate and postdoc presentations.

Undergraduate and MPhil/MSc students are especially encouraged to apply. Undergraduates will be assisted by a mentor to help them prepare the lightning talk. The topic of the talk can be for example, a past CS project (e.g. part IB project) or a project done during an internship. To apply for a lightning talk click here.

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