Conference Starts


We invite both BSc and MSc students to submit research papers from all fields of computer science. The length of the paper is limited to 4 pages. MSc students must write their papers in English, while BSc students may choose either English or Slovene. If your paper passes the acceptance threshold, it will be designated either for oral presentation or for poster presentation.

Having a paper presented at a conference and published in the conference proceedings is a reward in itself. Nevertheless, the authors of best papers, posters and/or presentations will receive additional awards contributed by the organizers and our industry partners.
