Description

The 2019 SICSA PhD Conference will be held at the Pathfoot Building, University of Stirling on 18 & 19 June.

The Scottish Informatics & Computer Science Alliance (SICSA) PhD Conference has been an annual event since SICSA began in 2008. It marks a time where PhD students attending universities all around Scotland get together for a couple of days. During the event students get to attend interesting workshops, talks and social events, whilst having a chance to showcase their work through the PhD Research Competition.
The event is open to all PhD students in Computer Science and Informatics in Scotland, not just students funded by SICSA. There are no registration fees and one nights' accommodation is provided free as the event is fully funded by SICSA. Due to the popularity of the conference, please register early to avoid disappointment

Workshops include:

Kick Start Your PhD
There is a First Time for Journals, Conferences and Review
How to Succeed Professionally After Your PhD
