Presentation Modalities

There are 3 presentation modalities to which you can submit:

Traditional Talk (~15-20 minutes)

Give a talk related to CS or OMSCS. Example topics include:

  • Present research you’ve conducted or are conducting
  • Discuss a unique experience you’ve had related to OMSCS and its impact on you
  • Share your perspective on an important ethical issue in CS
Demonstration (~10 minutes)

Demonstrate a project you’ve worked on (preferably in OMSCS, but personal projects are welcome, too). Example projects include:

  • Apps or games
  • AI agents
  • CS learning interventions
  • CS 8903 or CS 6669 projects
  • OMSCS Project Showcase submissions
Workshop (~45 minutes)

Share your expertise with other attendees in an interactive, hands-on format. Example topics include:

  • Tools commonly used in OMSCS
  • VR toolkits
  • Coding libraries
  • Best practices for being a successful self-learner
  • Job search skills (e.g., résumé writing, interview skills)

The examples given above are suggestions; feel free to propose presentations on different topics! You may submit proposals to more than one modality. If you would like to submit multiple proposals, please fill out a separate form for each proposal. 

Note that the OMSCS Conference is non-archival, so you are welcome to present work that has already been, or will eventually be, published.
