Posters/Lightning talks

Poster and Lighting Talk submissions are still being accepted for ACSW 2018. 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.

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 give a three minute introductory lightning talk.

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

Student funding for Posters/Lightning talks

CORE will provide a limited number of registration and partial support grants to PhD students presenting Lightning Talks/Posters, up to $350 per person. 

Students are encouraged to immediately:

(a) discuss this opportunity with their supervisor and get agreement (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 EasyChair; and

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


Authors are expected to submit a one page abstract that covers the following information:

  1. Title of the poster and lightning talk
  2. Author names and institutions
  3. Summary of the work to be presented

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

Where to Submit

All abstracts should be submitted via the EasyChair submission system under the “Lightning and Poster Session” track.

Important Dates

Early bird registration closes Friday 15 December, 2017. All presenters will be required to register for ACSW 2018 and pay the appropriate registration fee. Presenters also need to meet their own travel and accommodation costs.
