Student Extravaganza

Students will have the opportunity to hear short presentations from experts in the field about AOSD research directions, and to present their own work as a poster. This event is an excellent opportunity for students to get feedback on their work from leaders in the field, and to mingle with other students. All students are welcome.

This event has three overlapping goals:

Volunteers & EPSRC Bursaries

A limited number of student volunteer positions and EPSRC bursaries are available for PhD students to attend the conference. Click here for more information.

  1. Provide a venue for students to vet research ideas and directions with experts in the field.
  2. Expose students to possible research directions.
  3. Allow students to get to know each other.


We will start with some brief presentations from experts in the field about where AOSD is heading, and interesting open problems. The presenters will be announced closer to the event.

Students who have brought a poster will have been assigned a space on which to hang their poster. We will ask the students to present their poster to experts in the area who will circulate around the interest areas. Interesting discussions can then continue over refreshments. The panel of experts will be announced closer to the event.

We intend to have space available during the conference after the Student Extravaganza for some of the posters to be available for viewing to the general conference audience.

Poster Size

The recommended size for posters is AO (841mm x 1189mm). Posters of this size will fit well on the provided display boards and will ensure visibility from a distance.


Any student attending the conference can participate. We would encourage each student to present a poster, even if their work is only in the formative stages. Students wishing to attend must register.

Early registration deadline:Friday, 6 February (in time for feedback prior to conference early registration deadline).
Late registration deadline:Monday, 4 March.
