TC2 on Software

> Objectives

The 3rd IFIP TC2 Summer School aims to present a wide variety of up-to-date software technology principles, to enhance the academic expertise of Computer Science and postgraduate students and academics. The tutorials are all given by experts in the field of Software: Theory and Practice, which is the scope of TC2. Several of the tutorials are adapted from postgraduate courses given at the speaker's university, or from material presented at conferences. The speakers are giving their services without payment, and are genuinely looking forward to interacting with students and lecturers.

> Scholarships

     As at the 2002 Autumn School, we are able to give scholarships to students attending the school, thanks to our generous sponsors. The normal scholarship will be R2000. Students wishing to apply for scholarships should follow this procedure:

1. Only students in full-time study at a university in an African country may apply for a scholarship. Applications from lecturers at very needy institutions will also be considered. Part-time students cannot be funded.
2. Applications should include a full CV as well as a one page motivation explaining why you wish to attend the Summer School.
3. Applications should be submitted directly on email only to the organiser, Judith Bishop .
4. Scholarships will be allocated to deserving candidates while funds are available, up to the deadline of 31 October.
5. Scholarships will be used to offset the fee, and will not be paid out to attendees.
6. It is a condition of the sponsorship money that scholarships may not be paid to one country only.

> Credit Course

     By arrangement, the Summer School can be made a credit course with universities. Discussions with the organiser should be entered into timeously in this regard, but at least before 31 October 2005.
