Computer Researchers Are People (too)
International Multi-CONference on the Socio-Psychological Origins of Scientific Personnel
March 4th, 2010(co-located with the EWSCS '10)
The emerging socio-economic, socio-psychologic and socio-networkologic trends are greatly affecting the behaviour of the average computer scientist. It has been widely established that one's personal experiences and ancestral environment strongly manifests in the directionality of the steps taken to barrage the horizons of our research with the elementary particles of fresh knowledge.
As the even more recent discoveries of the esteemed Dr. Wryzhkhatofowski show, we are in dire need of at least superabundant threshold-breaking amounts of empiric data to support the massive neural network mining effort to construct the paradigm of the Ideal Computer Scientist.
This year's CRAPCON taps into the collective psyche of the computer science community by gathering the leading experts of the field to present their lifelong experiments on growing a faster, brighter and socially capable computer scientist.
Topics of interest
The conference intends to cover all aspects of the abovementioned research area. The potential topics include, but are not limited to nor restricted by:
- On the Origin of Specializations.
- Depth-first traversal of genealogical data: past, present and future.
- The migratory patterns of science personnel.
- Pairings of computer science with extracurricular activities.
- Personality Enhancing Technologies (PETs): theory and practice.
- Linear classification of computer scientists.
- The BSc, MSc and PhD complexity classes.
- Methods of supervised and unsupervised thesis defence.
- Non-interactive student supervision techniques.
- Algebraic and non-algebraic attacks on students.
- Discrete methods for verifying zero-knowledge properties of students.

Call for Presentations
Researchers of all areas and ages are welcome to submit their results in the form of an oral presentation given at the conference site in front of the worldwide CRAPCON community.
The presentation duration is expected to fail in the range of 2 to 10 minutes.
Conference VenueThe conference will be hosted in the restaurant of Park Hotel Palmse.
