Register today! Participate as an observer or give presentations. Over $3000 in cash prizes!

Registration Deadline: February 26, 2021

There are many ways for students of all majors to participate in SCRF. Those curious about computing research and innovation can attend as observers. Students who have been working on research or projects are encouraged to enter one (or all!) of the student presentations, alone or in a team.

To observe, you can be a student at any level. If you are not a student, please contact us.

To present alone without any team, you must self-identify as a female or non-binary, or a person with disabilities, or as a member of an underrepresented population in the computing field — including Blacks and African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Native Pacific Islanders.

To present as a member of a team, you do not have to fit the above descriptions, but your team must have at least one such team member.

If space or time becomes limited, UTA students and teams that include UTA students will be given priority.

Student Presentation Types

Research Lightning Talks

PhD students only

Each individual is given 5 minutes to give a presentation on their current research.

Presentation and Demonstration

Open to high-school, undergraduate, and graduate students

Each team of students (a team can have just one individual) makes a presentation to showcase their project that was accomplished in various contexts, such as dissertation/thesis, REU project, independent study, course project, science fair, and so on. The team will staff an online booth (i.e., a breakout room in the event’s Zoom meeting) during 11:30am - 1:00pm on Monday, March 1st. The teams will share screen/window with the audience and the judges and respond to questions during their presentation. We suggest typical forms of presentations, such as slides, posters, videos of recorded presentations, and so on. Project demonstrations are encouraged.

OurCS@DFW Team Presentations

OurCS@DFW teams only
