Welcome to the Bristol branch of the BCS

We have put together a program of events that we hope you will find interesting. You can help to publicise the meetings to everyone at your place of work by displaying one of our posters, or including the details of our meetings on your Intranet.

We always welcome non-members to our meetings, so please bring along your friends and work mates, perhaps they will join.

We are always looking for suggestions or ideas for talks. If there is a subject which you think would be of interest to the members we are always keen for your feedback. If you are working on an interesting project, or you know of someone who is, and would be willing to give a short talk about it we would be very interested to hear from you.

These meetings provide excellent networking opportunities and, if you arrive early, you can take advantage of the buffet whilst networking. The meetings are helpful also in regard to Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

BCS award at UWE

As some of you will know the Bristol branch sponsors a Student award and we are please to announce this years winner is Sundas Choudry from the University of the West of England. She graduates with a first class in Bachelor of Science with Honours, Computer Science.

We now have a Facebook group

We realise that our members interact in different ways, and we want to help facilitate this. That is why we created the Linkedin Group for branch members. But there are many members that are not part of that and don't want to be. So we have also created a facebook group. We hope this will be of use to members.

BCS Bristol twitter account

There is a Bristol branch Twitter account. Follow this account for information on new talks that we are scheduling and reminders about talks as they come up.
