Call for Abstracts

For the past ten years, the UNM CS Student Conference has showcased the research conducted by the students and faculty of the UNM Computer Science department. We are currently soliciting presentations and posters for this year's conference. Presentations will be 15 minutes long with an additional 5 minutes provided for questions. Posters will be displayed during the day of the conference and will be presented during an afternoon poster reception. Because this conference is principally a forum for sharing research within the department and the broader university community, novelty is not a requirement. Practice presentations and material that has already been presented in other venues are welcome. To submit a poster or presentation, send a one page abstract to:

csgsa (at) cs (dot) unm (dot) edu.
