Over the years the HPI Research School has been expanded to a state in which we are excited to welcome fellow PhDs from University of Cape Town (UCT), South Africa, and the Technion, Israel. In order to foster collaboration and information exchange, we organized a pre-symposium workshop, so that students from HPI, Technion, and UCT will get to know each other both on the social and the academic levels.
The workshop lasts for two days: Monday, June 14, and Tuesday, June 15. It will include an introduction of the Hasso Plattner Institute, an introduction into the huge variety of research topics in the Research School, and a social part, in which we are exploring the surroundings of the HPI, Potsdam and Berlin.
The introductions into the research topics will follow a more informal pattern: each member is given a 5 minute slot to give an elevator pitch of his research. We call this 1-slide-5-minutes talks. The aim here is to discuss interactively outcomes of our research. To keep the tight schedule, we limit each presentation to 1 slide so that every member is forced to concentrate on the key points.
Please find below the agenda of our pre-symposium workshop. The agenda of the official symposium on Future Trends in Service-oriented Computing can be found here.
