The Second Student Conference on Optimisation of Software 25-26 June 2013, University College London, UK

Welcome to StuConOS 2013

The StuConOS conference is aimed at current undergraduate and master students in the UK. The conference will give students a chance to submit their work and to have this reviewed by a programme committee of experts. We interpret the word "optimisation" in its very broad sense: anything that improves (in any way) software or the process of making it. It will give students an initial taste of research work and a chance to publish and discuss their ideas with experts. The programme committee will review the submissions and decide on those to be accepted and the prizes to be awarded. All authors will receive feedback on their work and those accepted for the conference will be published in a printed proceedings & online available and presented(by one of the authors) at the conference.


There will be prizes for the best three papers submitted in the form of a gold, silver and bronze medal which will be accompanied by a gift of £300, £200 and £100 respectively.
