Warwick Postgraduate Colloquium in Computer Science 2016

WPCCS logoThe WPCCS 2016 event is now over. Thank you to all those who attended! WPCCS 2016 was reported on the DCS news ticker. The proceedings of the event is available here(PDF Document).

The Warwick Postgraduate Colloquium is an annual event held in the Department of Computer Science which brings together postgraduate researchers from Computer Science and the Centre for Scientific Computing to present recent and on-going research. The event is free for all participants. Submission and attendance to WPCCS 2016 is compulsory for all research students in Computer Science as it is a condition for upgrading from an MPhil to a PhD, but PGT students are also encouraged to participate. Staff are encouraged to attend as much of the event as possible, in order to provide valuable feedback. Also, for the first time, we are welcoming students from across the university to attend.

Submission Information

Attendees may choose between submitting an A0 poster or a presentation. Poster submissions must include a PDF of the poster. Presentation submissions do not need to include the slides of the presentation (although it is recommended). MSc students and first year PhD students are required to submit a presentation. Each presentation should be 15 minutes long with an extra 5 minutes for questions.

All submissions are expected to contain new content. It is acceptable to modify an existing poster or presentation for the submission, such that it contains new and up-to-date information on your chosen topic.

A limited number of poster presentations are available (maximum 25), so if there are more than 25 poster submissions some people may be asked to resubmit a presentation instead. The notification of poster submissions is earlier to accommodate this.

Submissions can be made here. Once all submissions have been received and responses sent out to all authors, the presentations and posters will be allocated between the tracks and the schedule made available.

Prizes will be awarded to the best poster and the best presentation. A free lunch will be available on the day (provided you request it in your submissions) and there is also an optional dinner for attendees in the evening.
