The Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance (SICSA) community includes all postgraduate students studying for a PhD in Scottish universities as well as academic staff in SICSA member institutions. Our aim is to develop a vibrant, coherent community where students participate in research discussions and learn new skills. The SICSA PhD Conference is open to all PhD students in computer science and informatics in Scotland, not just those students funded by SICSA. There is no registration fee or accommodation costs and travel expenses to attend the conference will be covered by your university.
The third annual SICSA PhD Conference was held between 23rd and 25th May 2011 at the Informatics Forum, University of Edinburgh. The next conference is planned for June 2012 and will be held at Glasgow Caledonian University. Further details will be available on this web site at the beginning of 2012.
