MASTERS & DOCTORAL SYMPOSIUM
SAICSIT 2019 Skukuza
SAICSIT 2019 offers postgraduate students at master’s and doctoral levels the opportunity to actively engage with their peers and established researchers on the first day of the conference.
Successful students will be required to present their research during the dedicated sessions, and also will be required to display their work by means of a poster for the duration of the conference.
Participation is free and open to all CS, IS and IT postgraduate research students at any stage of their research. The Postgraduate Symposium provides an excellent opportunity to:
- practise giving conference papers and poster presentations in a friendly environment;
- present your research to peers and experienced supervisors;
- meet other postgraduate researchers working on similar areas of research but based in different Research Centres and universities;
- receive feedback on your research.
