Subject: [CFP] Student Research Forum (SRF2021) @ SOFSEM2021
January 25 - 28, 2021
Bozen, Italy

(Apologies in case of multiple receptions)

The Student Research Forum (SRF) is organized with the aim of publishing and
discussing student research projects in the field of theory and practice of
Computer Science. The aim of the forum is to offer students the opportunity to
receive feedback on the research originality and suggestions for the work in
progress based on a submitted research proposal. Furthermore, participation to
SRF can be the occasion for students to establish new valuable future

============ Participation FREE of Charge ==============
**Participation to the SRF for students (including authors of research
proposals) is free of charge.**
