Australasian Computing Doctoral Consortium (ACDC'12)
Monday 30th January 2012
The ACDC provides an opportunity for doctoral students to present their research and early results and receive
advice and constructive commentary from research experts.
Submissions are invited from current PhD students in computing who would benefit from feedback on their
research by a panel of established researchers. The consortium will operate in a workshop format.
It will contain at least one presentation by a distinguished
academic on the challenges and approaches to succeed in a PhD program. Up to ten applicants will be invited to present
their work during ACDC 2012, and experts will be invited to attend the presentations and discuss each student's work.
These selected applicants will receive complimentary ACSW 2012 student conference registration.
Note, however, that ACDC will not provide travel or accommodation costs, but possible support from CORE may be available.
Finally, PhD students who wish to attend, but have not submitted a paper, are welcome ---
however, be sure to notify the organisers well in advanced since numbers are limited.
The ACDC keynote will be given by Jyrki Katajainen. The title of
the talk is: Strategies to success in scientific work.
