York Doctoral Symposium on Computer Science and Electronics

29th October 2013, York, UK


The Department of Computer Science and the Department of Electronics at
the University of York are hosting the 6th York Doctoral Symposium on Computer
Science and Electronics (YDS 2013) on the 29th October 2013.

The goal of the symposium is to bring together doctoral students from
around the UK and Europe to share and exchange research and ideas. The
symposium will promote interdisciplinary research and help research students to
gain experience in presenting their work to colleagues.

Our academic keynote this year is Dr Sue Black (UCL) and our industrial
keynote speaker is Prof. Rashik Parmar (IBM).

Important Dates

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

* Full length papers (up to 10 pages)
* Extended abstracts (4 pages for content and 1 page of references)

Extended abstracts can describe very early work and ideas; full length papers
should describe work that is more developed. Authors should 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 so that as many
participants as possible can engage with the contribution.

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

Paper and extended abstract submissions will only be accepted via Easychair,
which can be accessed from the "Submission" page on

Submission Guidelines: Posters
Posters must be submitted in two stages. Posters will be reviewed based
on an initial submission of a one-page (maximum) abstract of the poster's content,
with the camera-ready version of accepted posters to follow. Please note the
deadlines above for these two stages.

Poster abstracts should be formatted using Springer's LNCS style. Templates and guidelines are available from their

The proceedings of the symposium (full-length papers, extended
abstracts and poster abstracts) will be published as a technical report by the Department
of Computer Science, University of York. The report will be freely available
online from Several hard copies
will also be printed.

Thanks to our sponsors we are able to offer the following cash prizes
to YDS contributors:

* Best full-length paper: £100
* Best extended abstract: £75
* Best paper or extended abstract presentation: £75
