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).

We are particularly keen on providing opportunities for students and apprentices. We hope to run our first social and networking events over the next couple of months, and we're eager to hear any ideas you might have about how best to engage with students.

We have some great events in the pipeline for this year already, and we aim to host one every month.

This years branch sponsored student award

The Bristol Branch has again sponsored a student Award. This year Conor Newcombe got the award for the best final year design and build project on a BCS accredited Computer Science or Software Engineering degree.

Above is Conor Newcombe with LLoyd Skinner and Dinos Appla who presented the award.

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.

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.
