28 to 29 April 2016
CS CON 2016 is the 14th
New Zealand Computer Science Research Student Conference (NZCSRSC), to be held at Victoria University of Wellington between 28 and 29 April 2016. This is the premier postgraduate
conference promoting ICT research in New Zealand. The main aim of this conference is to strengthen
New Zealand's ICT community by bringing students together to share their research, and establish
contacts that will support future careers. Students will gain experience in writing, submitting,
reviewing and presenting their research in a supportive environment. The conference will consist
of formal presentations and a poster session showcasing leading ICT research in New Zealand,
along with exciting invited keynotes and workshops.
This is a great opportunity to showcase your own research, exchange ideas, give and receive feedback, and discuss collaboration with other research students.
The NZCSRSC was first held in 1992 at the University of Waikato.
The conference grew out of the desire to bring students together to share their research and
work towards building a lasting ICT student community. After a very successful conference,
it was decided that the NZCSRSC would be held every few years and subsequent conferences
followed in 1995 and 1999 at the University of Waikato, and 2001 at the University of Canterbury.
There was a gap of a few years, then the conference returned to the University of Waikato
University of Canterbury
in 2008, University of Auckland
in 2009, Victoria University of Wellington
, Palmerston North in 2011, and University of Otago
in 2012. Then, the cycle
started again with the conference returning to University of Waikato in 2013, University of Canterbury
in 2014, and University of Auckland 2015. Given the importance of the NZCSRSC to the NZ computer science research community, the hope is to continue to make the conference an annual event.
