CALL FOR PAPERS: Imperial College Computing Student Workshop, 29-30 Sep 2011, UK

Imperial College Computing Student Workshop (ICCSW) 2011, London, United Kingdom

The 2011 Imperial College Computing Student Workshop aims to provide an international forum for 
doctoral students to discuss various and wide ranging topics that are current in computer science 

The workshop welcomes computing research students from all around the Europe.

The inaugural workshop aims at bringing together students at different 
levels of their graduate studies. The workshop offers a traditional track 
featuring technical papers and a discussion session focused on current 
topics in computer science.

The workshop aims to:
* offer research students the opportunity to submit and present their research at a peer reviewed venue;
* provide PhD students with the experience of organising a workshop, including reviewing papers by other students;
* provide a forum for open discussion of topics including those outside the current focus of research;
* allow students to network with those from other institutions as well as to learn about research at other universities.


* Abstract & replies to topics submission: July 15, 2011
* Paper submission: July 25, 2011
* Author notifications: August 15, 2011
* Camera-ready version & two-page slides: August 30, 2011


Technical Track

This track is a general computing track for both theoretical and applied 

Areas of interest for the general track cover all fields of research in 
computer science, including (but not limited to) the following:

Computer Systems
Logic and Artificial Intelligence
Networks and Communications
Programming Languages
Software Engineering
Theory of Computational Systems
Verification and Model Checking

Discussion Track

This track includes multiple discussion panels on current topics in 
computer science and its surrounding fields.

Current discussion topics include:
   "The Future of Machine Learing"
   "Software Engineering in the Age of Multi-Scale Computing"

We invite students to nominate additional topics for a discussion panel 
that they are willing to chair.

Gone In 120 Seconds

The workshop plans to include a "two-minute madness" session at the start 
of the event. In this sessoin, participants are given an two-minute 
opportunity to speak about their work.

Participants are requested to submit a short 2-slide presentation when 
sending their camera-ready manuscript to the conference chairs.


Submission of papers, replies and 120-second slides should be done via 
EasyChair at
