The National Advisory Committee on Computing Qualifications (NACCQ) was formed in 1988, and provides help and support to member institutions in the development, teaching and quality assurance of courses and programmes, from certificate through degree to postgraduate levels, in the field of Computing and Information Technology. The NACCQ also supports academic staff in several different ways, such as national workshops, research seminars, APL, moderation, the publishing of a journal, a research bulletin and also by organising this annual conference. NACCQ activities and a digital version of these proceedings are available from the NACCQ website.
The philosophy of the conference is the encouragement and support of new, emerging and established researchers in a safe environment while encouraging excellence and academic discourse.
