SAICSIT 2010 Call for Papers - Postgraduate Student Symposium


11 October 2010 at Forever Resort Warmbaths, Bela-Bela

SAICSIT 2010 offers a unique opportunity for postgraduate students at masters and doctoral levels to actively engage with knowledgeable and experienced researchers on the first day of the conference (11 October 2010). Successful students will be required to present their research during the dedicated sessions, and will also be required to display their work by means of a poster for the duration of the conference.


Participation is free and open to all CS, IS and IT postgraduate research students at any stage of their research. The Postgraduate Symposium provides an excellent opportunity to:

  • practise giving conference papers and poster presentations in a friendly environment;
  • present your research to peers and experienced supervisors;
  • meet other postgraduate researchers working on similar areas of research but based in different Research Centres and universities;
  • receive feedback on your research.
