About ACDC 2017

Australasian Computing Doctoral Consortium (ACDC) will be held in Melbourne from January 31 to February 3, 2017, organized by Deakin University. ACDC was established in 1996 in Wollongong. Now in its 21st year, the conference is a key forum for international researchers and industry experts to discuss the latest trends, breakthroughs and challenges in information security and privacy. The Australasian Computing Doctoral Consortium (ACDC) provides an opportunity for doctoral students to present their research and early results and receive advice and constructive commentary from research experts. Submissions are invited from current PhD students in computing who would benefit from feedback on their research by a panel of established researchers. The consortium will operate in a workshop format. Up to eight applicants will be invited to present their work during ACDC 2017, and experts will be invited to attend the presentations and discuss each student's work. CORE will be offering scholarships to contribute to travel costs for students enrolled at Australasian universities who will present at one of ACSW conferences (including ACDC 2017). Finally, PhD students who wish to attend, but have not submitted a paper, are welcome --- however, be sure to notify the organisers well in advanced since numbers are limited.

ACDC offers delegates an excellent opportunity to:

  • Exchange research experiences
  • Explore new trends and challenges within the field
  • Stimulate new research activities
  • Forge new research collaborations
  • Close the academic–industry gap
