The Event

WPCCS 2008 is an annual event held by the postgraduate students of Department of Computer Science at The University of Warwick. It is intended for postgraduate students to present research to their peers, in order to gain valuable experience in public speaking as well as an insight in the ongoing research in the department.

Target Audience

Every full-time postgraduate research student, in their 1st, 2nd or 3rd year of study, is expected to attend and to submit an abstract online by 1 June 2008. Postgraduate students beyond the 3rd year of study as well as taught MSc students are also invited to attend and the event and / or submit an abstract. Staff are encouraged to attend as much of the event as possible, in order to provide valuable feedback.



The abstracts will be peer-reviewed to provide feedback and allocate limited slots space (if needed). Selected authors will get the chance to present at the WPCCS in a 15 min (including questions) presentation.
