Ada Lovelace Day 2018 - call for proposals

Submit presentation or workshop ideas for the University’s annual Ada Lovelace Day celebrations.

Ada Lovelace Day is an annual event whose goal is to raise the profile of women in science, technology, engineering, and maths, and to create new role models for girls and women in these fields.

This year will be the tenth Ada Lovelace Day and to celebrate we’re now accepting proposals for potential presentations, demonstrations or workshops at the University’s own event.

A full day of activities are planned for Tuesday 9th October at the King’s Buildings campus.

Suggest an Ada Lovelace Day activity

Each idea submitted will be reviewed by the Ada Lovelace Day committee. Key criteria will be availability, audience and how it connects with the theme of Ada Lovelace Day. Please note the deadline for submissions is Tuesday 31st July.
