British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science (BCTCS)
29th -31st March 2021
The British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science (BCTCS) is an annual event for UK-based researchers in theoretical computer science. A central aspect of BCTCS is the training of PhD students, providing an environment for students to gain experience in presenting their work, to broaden their outlook on the subject, and to benefit from contact with established researchers. The scope of the colloquium includes all aspects of theoretical computer science, including automata theory, algorithms, complexity theory, semantics, formal methods, concurrency, types, languages and logics.
BCTCS 2021 is the 37th conference in the series and took place on 29–31 March 2021. Despite earlier plans to meet in person at the University of Liverpool the event took place online on Gather and Zoom.
WiT (Women in Technology) Talks
Ada Lovelace Activity Day - 2020
The EEECS EDI team assisted with Ada Lovelace Day, which was organised by a small team from the Faculty of Science & Engineering. The event was held on 6th October to celebrate Ada Lovelace's life, and was open to students in Years 10 to 13. The event consisted of a hands-on coding session, followed by a career’s carousel session with experts from different areas of STEM, and concluded with a Twitter competition to draw a picture of Ada Lovelace.
The event attracted around 45 attendees from local Schools (e.g. Kings Leadership Academy, Hope Academy, The City of Liverpool College), in addition to freshers from University of Liverpool.
EEECS also contributed to the 1st prize (£100 vouchers), awarded to Miss Laura Hill from The City of Liverpool College, for her creative artwork (below left). The runner-up was Angel Burrows (£50 vouchers), who is a Year 1 student in the Maths Department, with a colourful artwork (below right). The Committee aims to run this event again next year.
Victoria Gallery & World Museum event
Saturday 20th & 27th July 2019
It is now 50 years since Man first walked on the Moon, a defining moment of the 20th century and arguably one of the greatest achievements of the human race. Attendees were welcomes to come along for a fun-packed afternoon exploring this achievement and examining some of the everyday technologies we are able to use because of the space programme.
