Submissions

Submissions of extended abstracts for DCSI 2015 based on recent and active research are now open to all undergraduate and graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty members within the Faculty of Computer Science. Authors will present their work during the conference, held in September 2016.

Submissions are particularly encouraged from graduate and senior undergraduate students whose original contributions stem from pursuing their degree programs. This includes contributions from thesis research, graduate project research, final course projects, summer research terms, and research assistantships, as well as independent research. You may also submit previously published material or material accepted at other venues, so long as this is clearly indicated in your work.

This year, DCSI will provide basic editorial review prior to the conference. Every submission will be accepted and the authors will be able to present. All submissions will be eligible to be included in the conference proceedings. However, only full papers will be eligible for selection for full peer review and financial support for open access publishing.
