The third Imperial College Computing Student Workshop (ICCSW) aims to provide an international forum for doctoral students in computing. While most conferences and workshops in academia solely cater for specific research areas, ICCSW encourages doctoral students from all disciplines in computer science to submit papers and take part in the event. It is a workshop organised by students for students. The workshop will be hosted by the Department of Computing at Imperial College London.
The workshop offers:
- a traditional track featuring technical papers focused on current topics in computer science
- a poster session
- a tools and demos session
This track is a general computing track for both theoretical and applied approaches. Areas of interest for the technical track cover all fields of research in computer science.
Tools and Demos Track
Submissions to the tools and demo track are to describe novel tools implementing interesting theory. Papers documenting tools with real-world applicability are particularly encouraged to submit. It is expected that any tool paper will have an accompanying demo.
The poster session provides an excellent opportunity to share and discuss new ideas and interesting preliminary work. Posters will be displayed throughout the entire workshop giving presenters a unique opportunity to discuss their work, get exposure and receive feedback from attendees. All students who have a paper accepted for the workshop are welcome, but not required, to submit the poster.
- Abstracts due: Monday, July 15, 2013, 11:59 p.m. BST (extended)
- Paper submission due: Monday, July 22, 2013, 11:59 p.m. BST (extended)
- Acceptance notification: Friday, August 16, 2013 (extended)
- Final papers due: Friday, August 30, 2013, 11:59 p.m. BST (extended)
Submissions for the technical track, and tools and demos track are limited to 8 and 6 pages (including references) respectively in OASIcs format. For each submitted paper, the authors will be required to review at least two other submissions, not necessarily related to the topic of their immediate expertise. To ensure reviews are objective and meet academic standards the steering committee will look at all reviews prior to their release.
To submit a poster, please submit a draft of your poster, in PDF (A1 size), together with an extended abstract (up to 2-page) by Friday, August 23, 2013, 11:59 p.m. BST. Poster submissions must include the authors’ names, affiliations, and contact information. Authors are not required to print their own posters; the workshop committee will handle this and also cover the cost of the print.
Papers that do not comply with the submission requirements, including length and format, may be rejected without review. Submission of papers and posters should be done via EasyChair at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iccsw2013.
All accepted technical and tool papers of ICCSW’13 will be published in the OpenAccess Series in Informatics (OASIcs) published by Schloss Dagstuhl. It is expected that one of the paper authors will attend the conference and present their work. Electronic copies of the proceedings will be made available for all participants at the time of the workshop.
Registration is free of charge for all students. Some student bursaries, funded by industrial sponsors, will be made available to students with submissions accepted in the workshop. We aim to provide financial support for students who otherwise would be unable to attend.
The poster session provides an excellent opportunity to share and discuss new ideas and interesting preliminary work. Poster presenters will have the entirety of the evening reception to discuss their work, get exposure and receive feedback from attendees. All students who have a paper accepted for the workshop are welcome, but not required, to submit the poster.
The local steering committee will consist of research students from the department, who will be responsible for the organisation of the workshop. Research students from outside Imperial College are invited to become members of the organising committee as ambassadors of the workshop in their respective university to promote and coordinate students wishing to participate in the workshop. The current list of organising committee members can be found in the Organisation page.
