Welcome to Computer Science Ethics - Make your Application

We're in Beta

We're Currently Running in Beta!'

Welcome to the Computer Science Ethics Application Gateway. At the end of the process you will either get immediate approval or be able to generate a paper application for presentation to the Central Ethics Committee. We are using the central university authentication system and so you should use your central username and password; NOT your Computer Science specific ones.

We are currently running in Beta, if anything should go wrong or things don't go as you expect just email us at the contact email address.

Also if you have any complaints about the Ethics proceedure then we can help with a complains and redress procedure. Finally, if you are investigating illegal activity, you'll also need to look at the proceedure for this. Now it's time to...
