COMPUTER SCIENCE SOCIETY
About the Society
The Computer Science Society, a.k.a. CompSoc. We are a bunch of geeks set out to make the ever-evolving world of Information Technology more enjoyable, and understandable for everyone. The society began in 1991 when a group of students from the College came together to share their love for technology with the world. It has been our agenda to profess that computing is beyond writing complex code.
We are dedicated to the promotion of the various facets of computing. We strive to promote gaming, technology, applications, programming, science, and fiction, inter alia. We aim to do this through our workshops, gaming events, newsletters, seminars, and various full-filled events.
The society strives to extend beyond the conventional domains of computing through a series of multi-disciplinary events. Most importantly, we wish to familiarize people with technology, to increase digital literacy through fun events, talks, meme competitions, blogs, journal, and Instagram posts.
In the past, we have hosted Workshops and Talks, Orfik, Cybercept (Annual Fest), Tech Hunt, Quizzes.Cybercept is our annual fest. It includes a series of events, workshops, and talks which are aimed at bringing out the coder/analyst in you. We have a variety of events that attract both tech-geeks and non-geeks alike. GAMEface is a landmark event for the CompSoc in particular and the college in general. It is the biggest event of this kind held on our campus. It goes on for an entire weekend with participation from colleges like IIT Delhi, DCE, NSIT, SRCC, HINDU, and so on.
We are a melange of people brought together by a common idea: Tech is the future.
Vision and Mission
The Computer Science Society is committed to promoting Tech Literacy to everyone. It wants to make people aware of how they can use technology to simplify their work and solve real world problems. The Society also aims to solve commonly faced problems by leveraging technology. For this purpose, the society works on different projects and initiatives throughout the year.

Past Events (2022)
Clash of Memers
In order to make the online year more interesting, the Computer Science Society hosted an online Meme-making competition:Clash of Memers 2.0. Participants were required to choose among the 3 themes and submit their original artwork along with description. The memes were evaluated by the organizers with regard to humor, relevance, uniqueness, and originality. The event was conducted in two rounds and the top 3 winners were awarded with Netflix Subscriptions. The timeline of the event was from 13th January 2022 to 3rd February 2022. We received over 117+ entries from 57+ participants.
Paper Presentation Competition
In order to capture and model Computer Science in real-time, CompSoc conducted a Project Paper Competition in the month of March. It aimed to provide the students with a platform to display their technical grit and receive professional feedback which shall further enhance their skills and knowledge. Abstracts were invited from students based on the theme of Computer Science. Based upon the abstracts received, the students were shortlisted and invited to present their projects in front of the jury on 11th March 2022 and 13th March 2022. The event received over 22+ Project submissions on various technical topics.
Annual Fest – CyberCept’22
The annual fest of our society, CyberCept’22 was held from 21st to 24th April 2022. It consisted of events in both online and offline modes. Multiple events, talks and competitions were conducted during the course of these 4 days. It attracted both the geek and non-geek audience alike and saw an enthusiastic participation of more than 200 students across the country.
Inaugural Talk on ‘Future of Quantum Computing’ by Professor Arun K Pati
The fest began with an Inaugural Talk on ‘Future of Quantum Computing’ by Professor Arun K Pati. The talk was conducted on Google Meet on 21st April 2022. The talk was focused on how quantum computing could be the solution to the challenges that quantum physicists face. The speaker explained how it has the power to change our fundamental understanding of reality, and it could soon become a reality. We received 26 registrations and participants for the talk. We received good feedback from the participants that the talk was informative and insightful.
Orfik (Annual Treasure Hunt)
Our most awaited event, Orfik (Annual Treasure Hunt) was put together on 21st April 2022 (as a part of CyberCept’22), and it was conducted in hybrid mode. The hunt was open to all undergraduate students. It required students to brainstorm and solve puzzles/clues related to CS/Tech/Pop Culture and get to the ultimate treasure. It’s enough to bring out the Sherlock within you. The event was much appreciated and we were able to get a turnout of 42+ students.
On 22nd and 23rd April 2022, we conducted our flagship gaming event, GameFace. GameFace is a gaming extravaganza of St. Stephen’s College. It is organized for students to compete and have fun while playing games they are familiar with. The two day event, which included Mobile Gaming saw a wide participation from students of colleges across India. The gaming tournament comprised two online games: CODM (Call of Duty Mobile) and BGMI (Battlegrounds Mobile India). The event was conducted online and allowed inter-college and cross-college participation. For CODM, we got 6+ team registrations and for BGMI, we got around 28 team registrations with a total player count of 112. The games received positive reviews from the participants for a fair and transparent evaluation system. Overall, the event went off without a hitch and was a huge success.
National Workshop on Git and Github
Under the aegis of IQAC, the Department of Computer Science, together with The Computer Science Society organized a National Workshop on Git and Github on 23rd April 2022 (as a part of CyberCept’22). People from all over the country participated in the workshop. We got around 115+ registrations for the workshop. The workshop was conducted by two professionals, Mr Arjoonn Sharma and Mr Ratik Sharma, with the aim to educate the attendees on the fundamentals of Git and Github and show various other interface functions. It included live demonstrations and hands-on practice so that attendees could see what was going on in real-time on Github. The workshop was conducted on Google Meet and was aired live on YouTube.
SyntaX: Coding Competition
On 24th April 2022, we conducted a programming competition, SyntaX in online mode (as a part of CyberCept’22) on the virtual coding platform, LightOJ. The event aimed at testing the programming skills of participants together with their logical and syntactical capabilities. The event was conducted in two rounds: Language Conversion & Competitive Coding. Time complexities and error-free codes were the basis of evaluation. We received a good number of submissions for both the rounds. We received a good response as we got around 14 registrations, together with 7 active participants.
The Academic Year 2022-23 kicked off with the society conducting an Orientation for the incoming batch of the college on 14th of November 2022 in the Seminar Room.
