SICSA PhD Conference 2023
The Scottish Informatics & Computer Science Alliance (SICSA) Conference has been an annual event since SICSA began in 2008. It marks a time where PhD students and early-career researchers attending universities all around Scotland get together for a couple of days.
During the event attendees get to attend interesting workshops, talks and social events and this year we are incoporating a Pitching Session competition. The event is open to all PhD students and early-career researchers in Computer Science and Informatics in Scotland. There are no registration fees and one nights’ accommodation is provided for studnt who require to travel to the event free as the event is fully funded by SICSA.
Due to the popularity of the conference, please register early to avoid disappointment.
This year, the focus of the SICSA Conference will be on building research programmes to address interdisciplinary challenges. Increasingly, research focus and funding is led by societal challenges that are of international concern. Although computing science research will be fundamental to addressing these challenges, they will also need to collaborate across disciplines and a wide range of stakeholders. The aim of this conference is to expose research students to the opportunities of interdisciplinary research as well as skills and tools they will need to work effectively in this context. The conference will include keynotes from high profile speakers on the challenge-led research landscape, as well as workshops on research programme road mapping and interdisciplinary collaboration. Students will have opportunities to practice these skills in small teams drawn from the diverse fields of our discipline, in order to develop their own collective research visions.
