Welcome to SACLA 2020!

The Departments of Computer Science and Information Systems at Rhodes University are proud to be hosting the 49th Annual Conference of the Southern African Computer Lecturers’ Association (SACLA) from 6th to 9th July 2020.

The objective of SACLA is to promote co-operation among South African and Southern African Universities, specifically in order to further the method and contents of university education in the field of computing. The annual conference brings together lecturers, researchers, students, industry and society interested in the field of computing education, and for this reason it provides an opportunity to network and learn from one another.

The conference theme for 2020 is “TL;DR - Teaching the New Generation!”. The banner on this webpage hints at some of the well-established and new concepts that are involved in tertiary Computer Science and Information Systems education. Please join us in exploring and unpacking some of these during the conference. Younger academics (#Millennials, #GenX) are particularly encouraged to attend to enlighten those of us (#BabyBoomers) who might at first sight not fully comprehend the meaning of the conference theme .

"SACLA is a relatively informal association of people involved in the teaching of Computer Science and Information Systems at universities throughout Southern Africa. The main activity of SACLA is the annual conference, where issues concerning teaching and research in ICT in Southern Africa are shared and discussed."
