Call for Presentation & Poster Abstracts

The ACM Mid-Southeast Chapter Fall Conference provides a forum for discussion of current applications and experimental, theoretical and educational developments in all areas of computing. Faculty and students are invited to contribute an abstract of no more than 300 words to be considered to make either a 20-minute paper presentation or poster presentation addressing a relevant topic. We will be accepting abstracts in two major categories.

Faculty/Professional: Only abstracts for a 20-min. presentation will be accepted in this category. Submissions must be researched, authored and presented solely by current faculty members and people who are working as professionals within the computer science industry. 

Students: Abstracts for either a 20-min presentation or poster presentation will be accepted in this category. Submissions must be researched (may include research help from a faculty member), authored and presented solely by currently enrolled graduate and undergraduate students. Students can be in any level of their academic studies: PhD, Masters, Undergraduate 4yr Institutions, and Undergraduate 2yr Institutions. 

At least one author must plan on presenting the paper, abstract, or poster if selected for the conference. Any individuals making the presentations must pre-register for the conference after being notified of abstract acceptance.
