The Proceedings

Here you can approach the symposium proceedings.

What is it?

A forum for PhD students at the University of Iceland whose projects are of a computational nature to give a talk on their project, learn from each other, and get to know one another. It is expected that these projects will come from a variety of disciplines, including statistics, engineering, biology, chemistry and physics. The projects need not necessarily involve extensive computer programming, and the computational devices could range from laptops to computer clusters. The mini-symposium is jointly organized by the Faculty of industrial and mechanical engineering and computer science and the Faculty of science at the University of Iceland.

Who can present and how?

PhD students at the University of Iceland whose projects are of a computational nature can give a 15–20 minute slide (or whiteboard) presentation, followed by 5–10 minutes of discussion.

Who can attend?


Why should you present?

There are many aspects of computational projects that are common across different disciplines, and such a multidisciplinary meeting gives the participants an opportunity to get new ideas and see their own projects in a new light. Practice in giving presentations is always important, and it can sometimes be a first step towards a publication.

Why should you attend?

There has been a substantial increase in the number of computing PhD students at the University in recent years, and it is interesting to learn more about this flourishing activity.


Those who want to present as well as those who only wish to listen should register by selecting the Registration tab above. The symposium programme will be available via the Programme tab when available
