Poster and Lightning Talk Submissions

Poster and Lighting Talk submissions are being accepted for ACSW 2019. Please see below further information on how to make a submission.

The Australian Computer Science Week welcomes postgraduate students and researchers to submit short abstracts (up to 1 page) for posters and lightning talks on their research topics.  These posters and talks are opportunities to showcase your work to Australasian colleagues at the conference – there is no publication resulting from your presentation.

Submissions may include work previously published/presented elsewhere, and/or work in progress or planned.

We encourage submissions on all research topics that are related to computer science. Authors are expected to both present their posters during the poster sessions and, if selected, give a three minute introductory lightning talk in the designated lightning talk session.

All posters must be in A1 format (594x841mm/23.4×33.1 in).

This call for participation will close Friday 21 December 2018


CORE will provide a limited number of registration and partial support grants to PhD students presenting Lightning Talks/Posters, up to $375 per person.

Students are encouraged to immediately:

(a) discuss this opportunity with their supervisor and get agreement to participate (and ask if they are able to cover the other travel and accommodation costs);

(b) prepare a poster (or dust off one you have already made in the past);

(c) submit it through the link on

(d) complete the  form at to register your request for CORE support.

The closing date for the CORE requests is Monday 17 December.

Acceptance notifications will be distributed the same week.


All presenters will be required to register for ACSW 2019 and pay the appropriate registration fee. Presenters also need to meet their own travel and accommodation costs.

Early bird registration closes Friday 21 December 2018


Authors are expected to submit either a one page abstract using the template provided below


A PDF of the poster that they plan to present (this can be from a previous conference).

If submitting an abstract, the submission should include the following information:

  • Title of the poster and lightning talk
  • Author names and institutions
  • Summary of the work to be presented

If you have a poster already prepared which you would like to present, you may submit a PDF of the poster instead of an abstract.

All submissions will be peer reviewed and decisions will be made available via email.
