UPSITF is inviting you to join the 5th Y4iT Research Summit (YRS 2021)!

YRS 2021 (Virtual) aims to enhance the research mindsets, broaden perspectives, and serve as a dynamic learning experience of young researchers in conceptualizing ideas for thesis, capstone/research project or paper requirements focused on computing sciences and technologies.

Best ideas will be selected from among the abstract submissions for oral and poster presentations that will compete for the best paper and best poster awards.

The Y4iT Research Summit badge rates (inclusive of certificate of participation) are as follows:

  • Early Bird Reg Fee: ₱ 150 / person (until April 16, 2021)
