This conference is a one day event being held to demonstrate the latest research that is being done by all researchers in Computer Science at Bath University, showing the connections between the different groups in the field by allowing researchers from all fields to present and discuss their work. The aim of the conference is to exchange ideas and information about what is happening inside and outside of your field, and to see our progression of Computer Science as a whole.

The conference is open to all Postgraduate students, Postdoctoral researchers and staff, and will be aimed throughout all research areas of Computer Science at the University of Bath. We welcome submissions from the following research areas: 

        Human-computer interaction

        Intelligent systems

        Mathematical foundations

        Visual Computing

This is an opportunity to present your work in a formal environment of diverse researchers, to get a constructive feedback on your research ideas and to gain exposure to interests both inside and outside of your research group. All PhD and EngD students are strongly encouraged to submit for the conference, except for EngD students in placement (although if you still wish to submit you are welcome to).


Paper Submission Deadline: 1st May 2017 

We are currently calling for papers. Submissions should consist of a single anonymised PDF file of 2-5 pages, excluding references, written in the English language. The document should be intended to address a general Computer Science audience. All submissions will need to be electronic, consisting of a single PDF file.

The link for submission is HERE.

You will need to sign up for an EasyChair account using the link on the above page, before you will be able to log in and submit your paper.

Submissions should have paper format ACM. Templates can be downloaded from HERE.

Your paper could outline either your research in general, or a specific result or study that you are conducting, or have finished. (Care must be taken with specific studies especially, that the first 2 pages minimum are accessible to the general audience).

For the 1st year PhD and EngD students, a paper could contain preliminary research ideas or an outline of their transfer report. These papers will be reviewed according to different criteria. The title of these papers should start with "1st year PhD" or "1st year EngD"s.


Posters submissions will consist of a maximum one page abstract. The posters can be printed on any university printer in A3 format.


You can register HERE.

Anyone who would like to attend the conference can register, though the number of places for those who do have any contributions to the conference might be limited.

The authors of the accepted papers must attend the conference to present their work.
