SICSA is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 5th SICSA PhD Conference, to be held at the University of Stirling on 12th and 13th June 2013.
The SICSA PhD Conference is open to all PhD students in computer science and informatics in Scotland, not just those students funded by SICSA. The programme has been designed to cater for students at every level of PhD research – 1st, 2nd and 3rd year. There are no registration fees or accommodation costs and travel expenses to attend the conference will be covered by your university. En-suite accommodation will be available for all delegates on campus at the University of Stirling.
The conference is a forum for PhD students working within the SICSA research community. This year the theme of the conference is “Communication and Working Together”, and it will feature an exciting programme including:
•Pitching Competition – Working Together To Get Funded
•Careers panel & debate, to help you decide what to do after your PhD
•Transferrable Skills sessions, aimed at developing skills to help you communicate your research: Know your Discipline; Scientific Writing and Research Papers; Thesis Writing and Vivas.
•Workshops on a variety of technical subjects: How do the big players do it?; User Experience and Mobile Interaction; Security, Privacy and Trust; The Future of Programming Languages
•There will also be keynotes from distinguished speakers including Professor Muffy Calder OBE.
•Conference dinner and a range of social events.
Registration will close on Friday 17th May 2013 and we advise early registration to avoid disappointment, as places are limited.
