Student Conference - Call for Papers


The Call for Papers for Oxford's annual Department of Computer Science Student Conference has been announced.

The Department of Computer Science Student Conference 2011 will be held on Friday 18th November (Week 6 of Michaelmas Term).  Established in 2004, the conference was originally held biennially and has since become an annual event. 2011 also sees the conference return to Department, with all talks being held in Lecture Theatre A. All staff and students are welcome to attend.

Current Oxford DPhil students are encouraged to submit abstracts for talks or posters. Full submission guidelines, including LaTEX style files, can be found on the conference website at  Any research topic covered by the Department of Computer Science is appropriate and it is acceptable to submit work that has been presented or submitted elsewhere.

Presentations in previous years have covered new results, selected material from MSc, transfer, or confirmation theses, or research proposals of general interest. The conference may also serve as an excellent forum for students approaching Transfer of Status to present their work to a new audience ahead of their viva.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 11:59PM on FRIDAY 7th OCTOBER. The Selection Committee will review all abstracts and will select 14 talks from these for presentation, along with a similar number of posters; we expect to provide notification of acceptance by Friday, 4th November. Those invited to present talks will need to provide a camera-ready copy of their presentation by Friday, 11th November.

The best three talks will be awarded cash prizes, the winners to be announced at the wine reception at the end of the conference.

Full details of the schedule, buffet lunch, conference dinner, wine reception and other arrangements can be found at This information will be updated as further details of speakers are finalised.

The organising committe for this event are:  Sophie Kershaw, Katie Leonard, Lihao Liang & Joe Loughry
