The Computing Society of the Philippines (CSP) invites you to participate and submit papers to the 17th Philippine Computing Science Congress (PCSC2017). The CSP organizes this conference to enable computing educators, researchers, ICT professionals, and students to interact and to share their work in computing, computer science, computer engineering, computational science, and information and communications technology (ICT). The conference features contributed research papers and special lectures by prominent researchers and educators in the field of computing, ICT, and related fields.

PCSC2017 is organized by the Computing Society of the Philippines (CSP) and locally organized by the University of San Carlos, Talamban Campus, Cebu City, Philippines. 

Young Researchers' Forum

PCSC2017 features a Young Researchers' Forum (YRF) that will take place within the conference. The goal of this forum is to assist MS and PhD students by providing a venue for them to discuss their thesis topics, as well as present any initial results, for which they would like to seek advise from mentors that CSP will assign to them. We look forward to exciting and productive discussions that will result from the Forum, which will also serve to stimulate discussions and generate new ideas, as well as encourage  networking among students and researchers in Computing Science in the country.

The YRF will be reserved to bona fide graduate students. Interested participants are invited to submit an extended summary of their thesis proposal,  including a working title, an abstract of a maximum of 500 words,  the current general and specific research objectives, and a 3-page background of the study, including some partial results if available.  The extended summary must be emailed to arnie.azcarraga@delasalle.ph, with the subject : "PCSC2017-YRF name of student". Deadline is the same for regular paper submissions.


The PCSC2017 Proceedings will be electronically published with ISSN number. The online version will be available from the official CSP website (csp.org.ph) after the conference.

The extended abstracts submitted to YRF will not be included in the proceedings.
