HPI UCT spring workshop 2015

This workshop brought together students and supervisors from both collaborating institutions(UCT and HPI) to share ideas and recent research results in the emerging areas of Computer Science in Africa and Service Oriented Architectures. The Kick-off event aimed at celebrating our continued collaboration that has been cemented with the signature of a new five (5) year agreement for the period of January 2015 - December 2019.The talks given at the workshop included aspects of computing such as theory, design, and applications in networks, education, healthcare, and cloud computing. During the workshop in addition to two keynote talks, there were 14 student talks spread over the two days.

The workshop participants were deeply honored to have two distinguished keynote talks by Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel, President and CEO of the Hasso-Plattner-Institut; as well as by A/Prof. James Gain who recently joined the team of HPI supervisors at the University of Cape Town (UCT), South Africa. Both keynote talks provided avenues for further discussions and give new insights to the workshop participants.
