The North Texas Area Student Conference (NTASC) provides a forum for graduate
and undergraduate students in computer-related studies to present their projects, research
efforts, or classroom experience to their peers. Conference attendance is for students and
faculty. The program includes a keynote address, presentations of papers by students (only),
and lunch. NTASC provides a great opportunity for students to view the work of their peers
and to network. Presenters are expected to attend the entire conference.
Registration for the conference is FREE but required. You do not have to present to attend.
Door prizes are awarded at the conference lunch! Visit the registration page to register
for the conference. The conference is Saturday, April 15 from 8:30 - 3:30. The deadline for
Registration and Abstract submission is Wednesday, March 8th 2023
Upload Presentation Abstracts or RSVP through the button below. Abstracts are printed in the conference program (no proceedings are published).
The abstract is a brief, concise summary of the intent and conclusions of
your presentation. Maximum length of an abstract is 100 words. Do not include
figures, tables or illustrations in the abstract. Please type your abstract in Word,
single-spaced. Complete spell & grammar check. Use word-count to reduce to
100 words. Finally, copy-&-paste the abstract into the indicated box.
Designate ONE MEMBER of the group to submit the abstract. That person will enter the names of ALL the other members of the group along with the faculty sponsers' name in the designated box. ALL other members of the group must register for the conference individually, indicate they are a member of a group presentation, and enter the name of the faculty sponsor and presentation so all names will appear on the program. Please get together before-hand and decide on the title of your presentation. Groups that register, but use different titles for the same presentation may be excluded from the conference.
Presentations are limited to no more than 15 minutes (plus a 5 minute Q&A). A session
moderator introduces each participant. A timekeeper is responsible for ensuring the
time schedule is maintained. Student presenters must present at the beginning of the
session or they may not be allowed to speak. The program will be established
approximately 10 days prior to the conference and no changes will be made once the
program is complete. Any scheduling requests or requests for special accommodations must
be made at least 2 weeks prior to the conference. Presenters should dress
