Call for Peer Reviewed Papers

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 a four-page paper using ACM format to be considered to make a 20-minute paper presentation addressing a relevant topic. We will be accepting papers in two major categories.

Faculty/Professional: Original papers 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: Original papers for a 15-min 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.
