The 5th 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:

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

- Computer Systems - Programming Languages - Verification and Model Checking
- Databases - Computational Modellin - Machine Learning
- Logic and Artificial Intelligence - Software Engineering - Computer Graphics
- Networks and Communications - Theory of Computational Systems

The main criterion for evaluating the submissions will be originality. Papers based on previous published work will be considered only if they include a footnote to the title specifying the previously published work. In addition, a short appendix describing changes from the published paper can be submitted (optionally) to help the reviewing.

For each submitted paper, the authors will be required to review two or three papers, not necessarily related to the topic of their immediate expertise. To ensure reviews are objective and meet academic standards the steering committee will read all the reviews prior to their release.

All accepted technical, survey and tools papers of ICCSW’15 will be published in the OpenAccess Series in Informatics (OASIcs) by Schloss Dagstuhl (OASIcs format). Authors of accepted papers will be given the possibility to publish only an abstract rather than the whole paper in the proceedings of ICCSW’15. It is expected that one of the paper authors (a doctoral student) will attend the workshop and present their work.

Submission of papers should be done via EasyChair at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iccsw15.


The local steering committee consists of members of the Imperial College London ACM Student Chapter (http://acm.doc.ic.ac.uk/) who will be responsible for the organisation of the workshop. Research students from outside Imperial College are invited to join the organising committee as ambassadors of the workshop to promote it at their respective university and coordinate students wishing to participate in 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.
