ARCS Symposium, 11-12 February 2021, Coimbatore: Call for Papers: Deadline Extended to 1 November

October 19, 2020

ACM India announces the 15th Academic Research and Careers for Students (ARCS) Symposium, at PSG College of Technology, Coimbatore, India. Formerly known as IRISS, ARCS invites research scholars of computer science and allied areas in India to showcase their recent work (either published in 2020 or accepted in 2020 for publication) to a conclave of researchers and potential employers.

Talks and Panels
Apart from the contributed talks and poster presentations, ARCS 2021 will comprise talks by the ACM India Doctoral Dissertation Award (DDA) recipient, Early Career Research (ECR) Awardee and an invited Keynote Speaker. Further to this there will be four talks by early career researchers discussing the speaker's transition from PhD to their career and job, their expectations, disappointments, why they chose what they did, etc. Finally, we will also have several panel discussions.

Submissions will be in electronic form via EasyChair. Submissions must not exceed 2 pages (including the title page, but excluding bibliography). Submissions should begin with a title followed by the names and affiliations of all co-authors. This should be followed by a detailed abstract and the details of the venue where the work has either appeared or been accepted for publication. Submissions should be no more than two pages long. The usage of pdflatex and the ARCS style file are mandatory; no changes to font size, page geometry, etc. are permitted. Because of the ongoing pandemic, we will accommodate virtual presentations, if needed.
