Academics & Postdoctoral Researchers

By bringing together academics from across Universities in Scotland, SICSA has created one of the largest top-quality research clusters in Computing Science in the world.

Academics and Postdoctoral Researchers in Scotland are automatically part of SICSA and therefore eligible to take advantage of SICSA funding programmes:

Host a Visitor (DVF’s)
Host an eminent researcher for 1 week – 3 months. Collaborate & share them with SICSA to inspire the next generation of researchers
Research Theme events (Cross Theme/Disciplines)
The SICSA Research Themes are driven by you, the academic community, and research events are a great way to build and maintain relationships across Scotland within your area of expertise.  This is also a great way to work across across other Research Themes, SFC Research Pools and/or Scottish Innovation Centres.
Conference Sponsorship
SICSA is able to provide sponsorship for major international conferences to be held in Scotland with an Informatics and Computer Science focus
Summer School Sponsorship
If you’re organising an Informatics or Computer Science based Summer School that will be held in Scotland, we have sponsorship available to facilitate a number of free places for SICSA students
