Australasian Computing Doctoral Consortium (ACDC)
ACDC provides an opportunity for doctoral students to present their research topics and early results and receive advice 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 to provide guidance for each student’s future progress. Up to seven applicants will be invited to present their work during ACSW 2008, and experts will be invited to attend the presentation and discuss each student’s work. These selected applicants will receive complimentary ACSW 2008 student conference registration, accommodation and meals. Note, however, that ACDC will not provide travel costs.
Doctoral Consortium Award
A Doctoral Consortium Award will be presented for the best presentation.
Students wishing to participate in ACDC should have been enrolled in a PhD program in any area of computing in any CORE university in Australia or New Zealand for between one and 2.5 years by the time of submission.
