IRISS: Inter-Research-Institute Student Seminar

IRISS invites Computer Science research students in India to showcase their published or accepted-for-publication work to an audience comprising members of academia and industry. The event hosts oral as well as poster presentations. The submissions go through a program committee and selected papers are invited for oral/poster presentation. Partial funding is provided to the selected submissions.

As the event is co-located with the ACM India Annual Event where eminent researchers such as Turing Award winners and ACM Fellows are invited to deliver talks on their work, participants of IRISS get a unique opportunity to listen to them and interact with them.
