The Federated Computer Research Conference (FCRC) assembles a
spectrum of affiliated research conferences and workshops into a week long
coordinated meeting held at a common time in a common place. This model retains
the advantages of the smaller conferences, while at the same time, facilitates
communication among researchers in different fields in computer science and
engineering. Mornings of FCRC week will begin with joint plenary talks on topics of broad appeal to the computing research community.
The technical program for each
affiliated conference is independently administered, with each responsible for
its own meeting's structure, content, and proceedings. To the extent facilities allow, attendees are
free to attend technical sessions of other affiliated conferences being held at
the same time as their "home" conference. Proceedings from other affiliated
conferences will be available for purchase on-site. Tutorials and 1-day workshops
are not considered affiliated conferences.
