Sri Lanka Student Workshop on Computer Science (SL-SWCS) was founded by Dr. A. Ramanan (Senior Lecturer, Department of Computer Science, University of Jaffna) with the support of the then Head/Computer Science, Dr. E.Y.A. Charles and colleagues. The first workshop was held in 2011 and had around 100 participants; while being the first national-level student centered workshop that mainly focused students in Computer Science. The workshop nurtured two keynote speakers and 18 poster presentations. Since then SL-SWCS is conducted as a biennial workshop.
