Sponsorship & Exhibition Prospectus - Invitation

Sponsorship Details

Sponsors will have the opportunity to engage with leaders in the computing disciplines, researchers and educators from Australia, New Zealand and beyond. Australasian Computer Science Week (ASCW2016) organised by CORE, represents the largest annual gathering of computing educators and researchers in Australasia.

From 2 to 5 February 2016, the Australian National University expects to host between two and three hundred ICT educators and researchers to participate in the ACSW conferences and workshops. ACSW is held every year in either Australia or New Zealand and was last held in Canberra in 2000. The aim for 2016 is to build upon the existing strengths of the event, to re-emphasise its community building focus and provide a stronger community of practice for computing discipline leaders, researchers, educators and industry professionals in the region. ACSW is a multi-conference event with a collection of some ten different conferences and workshops across the Computer Science and Information Technology related disciplines.
