Alice & Eve 2021 is a workshop for celebrating women in computing in the Netherlands.
It aims to bring together talents in the field of computing.
The second edition of this workshop will be hosted on May 21, 2021 by Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
Alice and Eve event is inspired by the BCS Lovelace Colloquium that started in 2008.
For more details about the first edition of Alice & Eve in 2020, see here.
The event is free.
We welcome everyone from bachelor students to full professors to participate and to attend the event.
If you would like to attend the workshop, please register here:
The event is held during a single day, and features:
- keynote talks,
- a poster contest, and
- an exhibition on women in computing.
In addition to the keynote talks and the posters, there will be an exhibition which portrays twenty women in computing
and their most important contributions.
Some highlights of the exhibition:
- Grace Hopper who created the world’s first workable compiler;
- Ada Lovelace who is known for her work on the design of the ‘Analytics Machine’, the first ever general-purpose computer, and the first published algorithm;
- Rosalind Picard and her work on Affective Computing which is a combination of Computer Science, Psychology, Physiology and Cognitive Sciences;
- Frances Brazier who helped establish the first Internet Service Provider (ISP) in the Netherlands and Europe.
More information on these women, and many others, can be found at the exhibition.

Call for Posters
- Deadline abstract: Friday, April 30, 2021 at 23:59
- Selected abstract notification: TBA
- Alice & Eve event: May 21, 2021
All women students (Bachelor/Master/PhD) and postdocs of computing and related subjects  are invited to enter
one of the poster contests during Alice & Eve 2021.
To enter the poster contest, you will have to write a 250 word abstract on the topic of your poster.
Your abstract can be on any computing topic you like, e.g., it can be on a topic from social networking to quantum computing;
and from medical image processing to formal verification.
If it involves computers, we’re interested.
If you aren’t sure what a 250-word abstract looks like, we have some example abstracts here
(from the British BCS Lovelace Colloquium).
 We interpret “related subjects” very broadly – we would like to involve everybody in the area of computing in the broadest sense.
If you are not sure, drop the organisers an email at email@example.com and we will probably say “yes”.
More information about the location will be announced soon.
