1st Call For Papers Submission Deadline: 11 December 2009


We are now inviting submissions for full and short papers for the 8th New Zealand Computer Science Research Student Conference (NZCSRSC 2010), to be held in April 2010 at Victoria University of Wellington.


The NZCSRSC is a conference organised by Computer Science research students to strengthen the research community in New Zealand by providing opportunities for students to share, discuss and acquire valuable feedback in regard to their research, build research network and definitely establish friendship. It is also a good opportunity for Computer Science research students from around New Zealand to gain vital experience in writing academic papers, peer reviewing, and presenting work at the conference.

Submissions are now being accepted for:
  • Full papers (with presentation) – not exceeding 8 pages.
  • Short papers (with poster) – not exceeding 4 pages.
All papers must be in PDF format.

Papers must follow the ACM style guidelines (PDF).

Papers must be written by a student author and reflect the student's own research. Papers can contain research in progress i.e. research does not need to be complete for a paper to be accepted. Papers may be co-authored as long as the primary author is a Computer Science research student at the time of submission and is affiliated with a New Zealand university. Papers extending work published in previous NZCSRSC are also accepted, provided the advancement is significant.
