Venue/Registration

Pace Graduate Center
The site of the conference is the Pace University Graduate Center in White Plains, New York. It is located across the street from the White Plains railroad station, a half hour trip from Grand Central Station in NYC, see Directions to Pace Graduate Center. White Plains is the seat of Westchester County, NY, with a population of 60 thousand and located 30 miles north of NYC.

This conference is always held on the Friday of the last Doctor of Professional Studies (DPS) weekend of the spring semester which usually falls on the first Friday in May. DPS students usually arrive for the weekend on Fridays for dinner 5-6 pm and stay for evening classes 6-9 pm and Saturday classes 9-5. On this Friday, however, we encourage DPS students to attend the conference prior to the evening session.

Papers presented at the conference come from all areas of computing - information technology, artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, networking, security, systems development, etc. The authors range from faculty presenting their research, doctoral students presenting dissertation summaries or research in progress, masters-level students presenting dissertation or project studies, and occasionally undergraduates reporting on their research.

For the doctoral students and other conference attendees, we have arranged for reduced hotel rates at the Marriott Residence Inn White Plains, located at 5 Barker Avenue, White Plains, NY 10601.
