YDS 2011 welcomes contributions from all areas of computer science, which include, but are not limited to, areas of active research at York:

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Computer Architectures
  • Computer Vision
  • Enterprise Systems
  • Formal Methods
  • Human-Computer Interaction
  • Model-Driven Engineering
  • Natural Language Processing
  • Non-Standard Computation
  • Programming Languages and Systems
  • Real-Time Systems
  • Safety Analysis
  • Software Engineering
  • Software Testing
  • Theoretical Computer Science


This year, we will be accepting two categories of papers:

  • Full length papers (up to 8 pages)
  • Extended abstracts / short papers (up to 4 pages)

Extended abstracts can describe very early work and ideas; full length papers should describe work that is more developed. We urge authors to write with the breadth of the symposium’s scope in mind; papers should be as self-contained as possible, and should not assume specialist background knowledge, in order to enable as many participants as possible to engage with the contribution.

Papers should be formatted using Springer’s LNCS style. Templates and guidelines are available from this webpage.

Submissions will only be accepted via Easychair

Financial support may be available, upon request, to enable the attendance of authors.


For the first time, YDS will be offering a poster session this year.

With regards to submission, we require the following:

  1. A one-page abstract of your research (for inclusion in the proceedings).
  2. A poster OR a poster plan.

The above submissions should be sent electronically to cposkitt[@], NOT via our Easychair instance (which is for papers only). Further details are available from our “Submission” page on . Note in particular the later submission deadline for posters.

Financial support may be available, upon request, to enable the attendance of poster owners.


The proceedings of the symposium (which will include both types of paper, as well as poster abstracts) will be published as a technical report by the Department of Computer Science, The University of York. The report will be freely available online via , and in addition, a number of hard copies will be printed.
