Call For Papers

YDS 2011
Fourth York Doctoral Symposium on Computer Science
20th October 2011, York, UK


The Department of Computer Science at the University of York is to host
the 4th York Doctoral Symposium on Computer Science (YDS 2011), on the
20th October this year. The goal of the symposium is to bring together
doctoral students from around the UK and Europe to share and exchange
their research and ideas with others. The symposium will promote
interdisciplinary research and help research students to gain experience
in presenting their work to colleagues.

Important Dates

* Paper submission deadline: 19th June
* Author notification: 1st August
* Poster submission deadline: 8th August
* Poster notification: 24th August
* Camera-ready papers and posters due: 31st August
* Symposium: 20th October

YDS 2011 welcomes contributions from all areas of computer science, which
include, but are not limited to, areas of active research at York:

* Artificial Intelligence
* Computer Architectures
* Computer Vision
* Enterprise Systems
* Formal Methods
* Human-Computer Interaction
* Model-Driven Engineering
* Natural Language Processing
* Non-Standard Computation
* Programming Languages and Systems
* Real-Time Systems
* Safety Analysis
* Software Engineering
* Software Testing
* Theoretical Computer Science

Submission Guidelines: Papers
This year, we will be accepting two categories of papers:

* Full length papers (up to 8 pages)
* Extended abstracts (2-4 pages)

Extended abstracts can describe very early work and ideas; full length
papers should describe work that is more developed. We urge authors to
write with the breadth of the symposium's scope in mind; papers should be
as self-contained as possible, and should not assume specialist background
knowledge, in order to enable as many participants as possible to engage
with the contribution.

Papers should be formatted using Springer's LNCS style. Templates and
guidelines are available from this webpage:

Paper submissions will only be accepted via Easychair: the link to use is
available from our "Submission" page on

Financial support may be available, upon request, to enable authors to
attend the symposium.

Submission Guidelines: Posters
For the first time, YDS will be offering a poster session this year.

With regards to submission, we require the following:

(1) A one-page abstract of your research (for inclusion in the proceedings).
(2) A poster OR a poster plan.

The above submissions should be sent electronically to, NOT via our Easychair instance (which is for
papers only). Further details are available from our "Submission" page on . Note in particular the later submission
deadline for posters.

Financial support may be available, upon request, to enable poster authors
to attend.

The proceedings of the symposium (which will include both types of paper,
as well as poster abstracts) will be published as a technical report by
the Department of Computer Science, The University of York. The report
will be freely available online via , and in addition, a
number of hard copies will be printed.

Thanks to our sponsors, we will be able to offer a number of cash prizes
to YDS contributors:

* Best full-length paper: £100
* Best extended abstract: £80
* Best poster: £80
* Best presentation (as voted by the audience!): £50

We are very grateful to be sponsored by the following companies and

* BAE Systems
* Cybula
