Australasian Computer Science Week 2018

29 January — 2 February 2018, UQ St Lucia

The University of Queensland's Research Computing Centre is hosting the Australasian Computer Science Week (ACSW) conference at UQ’s St Lucia campus from 29 January to 2 February 2018. Early-bird registration closes Friday, 1 December 2017.

RCC Director Prof. David Abramson is the chair of ACSW 2018.

ACSW covers research and education in computer science across Australasia. It is organised under the governing auspices of the Computing Research and Education (CORE) Association of Australasia, an association of university departments of computer science in Australia and New Zealand.

The annual conference is attended by Higher Degree Research (HDR) students, academics and industry representatives in computer science from across Australasia.

ACSW 2018 consists of several satellite conferences covering a wide range of computer science topics, including:

  • Asia-Pacific Conference on Conceptual Modelling (APCCM 2018)
  • Australasian Computing Education Conference (ACE 2018)
  • Australasian Information Security Conference (AISC 2018)
  • Australasian User Interface Conference (AUIC 2018)
  • Australasian Web Conference (AWC 2018)
  • Interactive Entertainment (IE 2018)
  • Australasian Workshop on Health Informatics and Knowledge Management (HIKM 2018)
  • Australasian Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing (AusPDC 2018).

ACSW 2018 has a new stream focused on training opportunities for ECRs and HDRs, including how to build and run industry collaborations, how to apply for a promotion, and a grant-writing workshop.

ECRs and HDRs are particularly being encouraged to register and attend ACSW 2018.

UQ, QUT and Griffith University have pre-sponsored a number of ECR and HDR registrations.
