BCS President visits ECS

Published: 18 January 2008

Rachel Burnett, President of the British Computer Society visited ECS at the invitation of the School's ECSWomen group.

Rachel Burnett spoke about her term as BCS President to an audience of students and staff in ECS and Law. Her talk 'BCS - this year's focus: activities, achievements and networks', sparked lots of lively discussion with regards to IT Law, the BCS and gender issues.

The meeting was hosted by ECSWomen, a new group which has just been set up this academic year, in conjunction with the Southampton branch of the British Computer Society. This is the first branch of the BCS in the UK to have affiliated a student chapter.

Two members of ECS academic staff have recently served as President of the BCS: Professor Wendy Hall (2004-5) and Professor Nigel Shadbolt (2006-7).
