So what's Thinking Digital all about?

"Thinking Digital is an outstanding conference — the combination of excellent speakers and engaged, curious, and motivated attendees creates an atmosphere of electric serendipity."

Erin McKean, Founder of

Foundational Partner

The School of Computing Science at Newcastle University is proud to be the Foundational Partner of the first Thinking Digital Women event. 

Every year, about four hundred student graduate from the School at various levels, which forms the engine behind the booming digital industry in the region. 

The School is strongly committed to equality and diversity and has been awarded a bronze medal from the UK's Scientific Women Academic Network for its effort to support females throughout their careers. 

The research we do demonstrates how versatile computing science can be, and our research is ranked first among all universities in the UK for its impact on society and the economy. We research digital applications in all kinds of settings, including children's health, online privacy, cyber-crime, computational biology, participation in local democracy, phone chips and virtual reality games. 

We also are home of the regional centre for Computing At School, supporting teachers in primary and secondary schools in teaching computer science.    
"Thinking Digital is such a well-organised conference with fantastic social engagement and top-notch speakers showing how digital is changing the arts, business and our everyday lives. An outstanding event."

Bill Jinks, CTO at IBM
