DISTINGUISHED DISSERTATIONS 2003

Second announcement


Closing date for this years competition is 1 April 2003


The Conference of Professors and Heads of Computing (CPHC), in
conjunction with the British Computer Society (BCS), annually selects
for publication the best British PhD/DPhil dissertations in computer
science. Over thirty theses have been selected for publication since the
scheme began in 1990.

The scheme aims to make more visible the significant contribution made
by Britain - in particular by post-graduate students - to computer science.

Publication also serves to provide a model for future students. The
selection panel on behalf of CPHC consists of up to nine experienced
computer scientists, not more than one from any institution, each
normally serving on the panel for three years. The 2002/2003 panel
membership includes Steve Benford (Nottingham, Chairman), Gordon Blair
(Lancaster), Muffy Calder (Glasgow), Jon Crowcroft (Cambridge), David De
Roure (Southampton), Peter Dew (Leeds), Peter Johnson (Bath), Ursula
Martin (St Andrews), and Nigel Shadbolt (Southampton).

Any dissertation is eligible which is submitted for a doctorate in the
British Isles in what is commonly understood as Computer Science.
(Theses which are basically in some other discipline but which make use,
even very extensive use, of computing will not be regarded as eligible.)

To be considered, a dissertation should: make a noteworthy contribution
to the subject, reach a high standard of exposition, place its results
clearly in the context of computer science as a whole, and enable a
computer scientist with significantly different interests to grasp its
essentials.

It is reasonable to submit a thesis to the scheme if it has all of the
above qualities in good measure, and if it is comparable in standard
with the top 10-15% of dissertations in the subject. Long dissertations
are not encouraged; if the main text is more than about 80,000 words,
there should be good justification.


We are introducing a number of changes to the competition for 2003:

- electronic submission of theses

- electronic publication of theses by the BCS/CPHC

- publication of a greater number of theses. Last year's panel felt that
many of the short-listed theses were a credit to our research community
and deserved wider visibility. As a result, we intend to publish
short-listed theses and then, within these, to star the competition winners.

The aim of these changes is to increase the availability of the selected
theses, to enable a larger number of theses to be made available, and to
simplify the submission and subsequent processing of theses.

The dissertation should be submitted electronically by the author's
examiners, or by the Head of Department with the examiner's advice. It
should be accompanied by the author's written agreement and by an
assurance that within the previous twelve months the examiners have
recommended to the author's institution that it merits a doctorate. An
indication should be given if the dissertation is being considered for
publication elsewhere. The dissertation should be accompanied by a
written justification, of perhaps 300 words, by one of the examiners -
preferably the external - explaining the dissertation's claim to
distinction.

The latest submission date is 1st April 2003. Full submission details
will follow.

Steve Benford, January 2003.
