What is it?

Over the years the HPI Research School has been expanded to a state in which we are excited to welcome colleagues from University of Cape Town (UCT), South Africa, the Technion, Israel, and Nanjing University, China. In order to foster collaboration and information exchange, we organized a pre-symposium activity event, so that PhD students from HPI, UCT, Technion, and NJU will get to know each other both on the social and the academic levels.

The event includes a mix of a social event, poster session, and demo presentations. The poster session that dives into the research topics of the attending PhD students, will follow a more informal pattern: eating ice cream while exploring other people posters and explaining yours!

Please find below the agenda of our pre-symposium event. The agenda of the official symposium on Future Trends in Service-oriented Computing can be found here.
