Undergraduate Computer Science Conference - CUCSC 2015 CCÉI


Greetings,

We are delighted to announce that the Canadian Undergraduate Computer Science Conference/Congrès Canadien des Étudiants en Informatiques (CUCSC/CCÉI) will be held at the University of British Columbia Okanagan campus in Kelowna, BC from July 8th to 11th, 2015. This will be the first conference ever to be held in Canada directed towards undergraduate students interested in pursuing a vocation in computer science. This conference is an international event so we welcome people from around the world to participate and spread the word!
The CUCSC/CCÉI is a bilingual conference in English and French that will include keynotes presented by a diverse array of professions related to the computer science field including university professors from around the country, entrepreneurs and professionals in the industry. These talks will allow students to gain a broader view of what is beyond their school environment as well as a chance to connect with the larger community. In addition to attending the talks, we fully welcome students to present talks of their own to share their research, projects they’ve been working on or a topic of interest to them. We are positive this conference will assist the aspiring undergraduates of all levels to realise and achieve their full potential.
One of the main highlights in the CUCSC/CCÉI is the “Women in Computer Science” night which will provide a wonderful opportunity for women in the field to connect with one another and to share their expertise. We are hopeful that this event will also further promote and encourage prospective female students as well as current undergraduates to pursue their interest in computer science.
This is the first conference of its kind to be held in Canada and we hope that you and your students will partake in it. Please let your students know that funding is often available for attending conferences.

Bonjour,

Nous sommes heureux de vous informer que le congrès Canadien des Étudiants en Informatiques/Canadian Undergraduate Computer Science Conference (CCÉI/CUCSC) aura lieu au campus Okanagan de l'Université de la Colombie Britannique, à Kelowna du 8 au 11 juillet 2015.  Ce sera la première conférence de ce genre au Canada à s'adresser aux étudiants de premier cycle universitaire désireux de développer leur intérêt dans les sciences de l'informatique.  Cette conférence est un événement international qui réunira des gens de partout dans le monde.  Faites circuler l'information!
Le CCÉI/CUCSC est un congrès bilingue qui se vivra en anglais de même qu'en français et où de nombreux professionnels liés au domaine de l'informatique, c'est-à-dire des professeurs d'université de partout au Canada, des entrepreneurs ainsi que des professionnels de l'industrie viendront partager leur expertise. Ces conférences permettront aux étudiants d'élargir leurs connaissances scolaires tout en leur offrant l'opportunité de faire de nombreux contacts à travers la communauté.  En plus de participer aux différentes conférences, nous invitons les étudiants à s'exprimer en présentant leurs recherches, leurs projets ou simplement leurs intérêts personnels en la matière.  Nous sommes convaincus que cette formule contribuera  à développer le plein potentiel des futurs titulaires du baccalauréat en informatique.
De plus, l'un des principaux points forts du Congrès sera de souligner la place des Femmes en informatique.  À cette occasion, celles-ci auront le privilège d’échanger ainsi que de partager leur expertise.  Nous sommes confiants que cette opportunité contribuera de façon positive à encourager les Femmes à persévérer dans l'atteinte de leur objectif et de leurs intérêts envers le domaine de l'informatique.
Puisque ce congrès sera le premier de son genre au Canada, nous espérons que vous et vos étudiants (es) serez présents en grand nombre. Nous vous prions d'informer vos étudiants que du financement est souvent offert pour les élèves qui désirent assister à un congrès.
Veuillez nous contacter à cucsc.2015@ubc.ca, ou consulter notre page Facebook pour plus d'informations.

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

Course enrollment for Spring 2018

Appointments for course enrollment began on Monday 26 March and open enrollment begins on Wednesday 28 March.

For students trying to add CS courses, we encourage you to review the course selection page.

COURSE ENROLLMENT
In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?
1. Students who selected courses but something went wrong because of: enrollment capacity in a course **a time conflict **an academic enrolment block was applied after course selectiondropping or failing a course after course selection** Please re…
