About

The North Texas Area Student Conference (NTASC) is designed to provide 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 faculty and students.  The program includes a keynote address and presentations of papers by students.

Registration is required for the conference and you do not need to be a presenter to be able to attend. Registration is FREE and door prizes will be awarded! Visit the registration page to register for the conference. The deadline for registration is March 31st, 2015.

Abstract submission must be sent electronically using the registration page, and it is due no later than March 31st 2015.  Instructions about format of abstract and submission guidelines can be found on the abstract guidelines page.  Abstracts will be printed in the conference program (no proceedings will be published).

This conference provides the perfect opportunity for students to view the work of their peers and to be able to network.

Guidelines for Submission of Paper Abstracts


The abstract should be a brief, concise summary of the intent and conclusions of your paper or project and should be no more than 150 words in length. Please, do not include any figures, tables or illustrations in the abstract. All abstracts must include the title with the name of all authors centered on separate lines below the title. Single space the text using 12-point, Times New Roman font, one-inch, flush margins. Use a 5-space indentation at the beginning of each paragraph. Do not place blank lines between paragraphs. Be sure to spell-check, and carefully proof read your abstracts. The content of all abstracts will be printed as received with no editing of content. Abstracts will be edited only to fit them into the format of the program. A sample abstract is given below.

Multiprocessor Scheduling:
An Object Oriented Approach to Parallel Processing
 
Midwestern State University
Obaidur Rashid, Joe Smith
 
      Scientific applications, such as digital signal processing, are usually dependent on parallel or multiprocessor architectures. The efficient use of those architectures is highly dependent on the way that the application tasks are scheduled. One of the common methods of scheduling tasks under constrained resources is List Scheduling. The performance of this technique is quite satisfactory. However, the implementation of this algorithm is usually based on a functional design approach. As a result, it fails to take advantage of the object technology. Objects support abstraction, encapsulation, modularity, hierarchy, typing and persistence, and thus improving the ability of software to be reused, tested, refined, maintained, and extended. The advantages of objects are well accepted in todays world. In this paper, we implement list scheduling using an object oriented approach and thus avail its advantageous features.

Submission of Abstracts

Guidelines For Paper Presentations

Presentations are limited to no more than 20 minutes (including a 5 minute question and answer period). A session moderator will introduce each participant and will be responsible for keeping each presenter within the allotted time. Each room used for presentations will be equipped with a computer / projector, lectern, and a table. If you have any other special requirements, please contact the conference coordinator at christina.britt@mwsu.edu. The program will include the abstract of your work.
