The 6th Imperial College Computing Student Workshop (ICCSW) aims to provide an international forum for doctoral students in computing, a workshop for students, by students!

Over the past six years, ICCSW has been established as a high quality student-run international academic event in Europe. Both organisers and participants are doctoral students from the United Kingdom and other countries. The workshop is an opportunity to both publish and discuss new research, including work-in-progress, and network with peers from other institutions.

While most conferences and workshops in academia solely cater for specific research fields, ICCSW encourages doctoral students from all disciplines in computer science to submit a paper.

The ICCSW’17 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 Modelling Machine Learning
Logic and Artificial Intelligence Software Engineering Computer Graphics
Networks and Communications Theory of Computational Systems



Papers must be written in English, within page limits, and using the OASIcs template — please read carefully the typesetting instructions.

Page limits are as follows:

All accepted papers of ICCSW’s traditional track will (optionally) be published in the OpenAccess Series in Informatics by Schloss Dagstuhl (OASIcs format). If requested, accepted papers will be given the possibility to publish only an abstract rather than the whole paper in the proceedings of ICCSW’17.

At least one of the paper’s authors (student) must attend the workshop and present the work.

Each participant who submits a paper is required to review at least two other papers, not necessarily related to their field of expertise. To ensure reviews are objective and meet academic standards, the steering committee will read all reviews prior to their release.

All submission of papers and abstracts should be done via EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iccsw17.


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.
