The ACM India Council announces the 16th Academic Research and Careers for Students (ARCS) Symposium, Coimbatore, India, 10-11 February 2022. Earlier, the event was known as IRISS. ARCS invites research scholars of Computer Science and allied areas in India to showcase their recent work (either published in 2021 or accepted in 2021 for publication) to a conclave of researchers and potential employers.

Apart from the contributed talks and poster presentations, ARCS 2022 will feature a keynote by Prof. Amit Kumar, IIT Delhi, talks by the ACM-India Doctoral Dissertation Award (DDA) recipient, Early Career Research (ECR) Awardee. Further to this there will be four talks by early career researchers discussing the speakers' transition from PhD to their career and job, their expectations, disappointments, why they chose what they did etc. The speakers of the early career sessions are Prof. Chaya Ganesh, IISc., Dr. Parul Ganju, Ahammune Biosciences Pvt. Ltd, Prof. Shweta Jain, IIT Ropar, and Dr. Karthik Ramachandra, Microsoft Azure Data SQL R&D. Finally, we will also have several panel discussions with panelists from the industry and academia.

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. See https://event.india.acm.org/ARCS/#arcs-cfp to download the style file.
