Call for Papers

The Seventh Annual Conference on Undergraduate Research on Applied Computing (URC 2015) aims to provide a forum for undergraduate students to present their ideas and interact with other young researchers from educational institutions in the UAE, other GCC countries, and the rest of the Arab world, as well as expert faculty and leaders from the IT industry. So, if you are an undergraduate student (in UAE, GCC counrties, other Arab countries) working on a final year project or doing research in any computing field, you are encouraged to submit an abstract for oral or poster presentation. There are two types of submissions (for oral or poster presentations), and all submissions will be reviewed by expert faculty and feedback will be provided to all submissions.
Call for Papers in PDF format.

Abstracts for Oral or Poster Presentation should report on a research project work done by undergraduate students, and the first author should be an undergraduate student. The research project can be in progress and results will be available and presented at the conference in an oral or poster presentation. In an oral presentation, the presenter will be given 15 minutes to present his/her work in front of the audience. Poster presentations are meant to be visual and will be displayed in the conference venue and presented during breaks. Most students who have demos like to present in a poster presentation style.
