Warwick Postgraduate Colloquium in Computer Science 2012

The Warwick Postgraduate Colloquium is an annual event held in the Department of Computer Science which brings together postgraduate researchers from Computer Science, MOAC and the Centre for Scientific Computing to present recent and on-going research. The event is free for all postgraduates. Submission and attendance to WPCCS 2012 event is compulsory for all research students in Computer Science.

Building upon the success of previous years, WPCCS 2012 will contain two tracks which will run in parallel. Once all submissions have been received the abstracts will be allocated between the tracks and the schedule made available.
