The informal Booklet of Abstracts (updated: now also including authors' email addresses) can be found under the 'Programme' tab of this web site. Moreover, also a photo web page has been set up for all participants who wish to download some nice souvenir photographies from the events in Cullinan.

Update 11-5-2016: Title and topic of Bob Travica's invited lecture: "Teaching Informatics in North America: Jugglers Wanted"
Update 9-5-2016: The title and topic of Martin Olivier's invited lecture at SACLA`16 is: "On the Morality of Teachning Students IT Crime Skills"
Update 15-4-2016: We have reached a cordial agreement with the well-known Johannesburg Centre for Software Engineering (JCSE) about the co-location of a JCSE Workshop at our SACLA`16 Conference. The JCSE Workshop will have the highly important topic "The IT Skills Shortage in South Africa", which will surely attract a number of important visitors to the event. This topic is certainly relevant also for the many academics who are going to attend the SACLA`16 conference. From an 'academic' point of view the JCSE Workshop is 'internally autonomous' with its own committee, its own list of speakers, its own publication, etc. We thank the JCSE for this amicable agreement, and we look forward to the mutual benefits of this JCSE/SACLA`16 co-location of events. For further information about the JCSE Workshop at SACLA`16 please contact Adrian Schofield in Johannesburg.
