Registered participants will receive specific joining instructions two weeks before the conference. In the meantime, we hope you find the following, more general, ICCWS Practical Information helpful.
Stellenbosch University and the CSIR are co-hosting ICCWS 2019
Stellenbosch University (SU) is home to an academic community of 29 000 students (including 4 000 foreign students from 100 countries) as well as 3 000 permanent staff members (including 1 000 academics) on five campuses. The historical oak-lined university town amongst the Boland Mountains in the winelands of the Western Cape creates a unique campus atmosphere, which attracts local and foreign students alike. The University is recognised internationally as an academic institution of excellence. According to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, SU is one of the top 300 universities in the world.
The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) is a world-class African research and development organization that undertakes directed, multidisciplinary research and technological innovation that contributes to the improved quality of life of South Africans. As part of the CSIR's contribution to national defence and security, it provides protection against cyber-security threats, the development of systems for the effective sharing of information across different components of the security forces and helps to ensure that government is a smart buyer and user of technology in this space. The organisation provides science, engineering and technology support for the continuous improvement of the country’s armed forces.
Stellenbosch is a university town in South Africa's Western Cape province. It's surrounded by the vineyards of the Cape Winelands and the mountainous nature reserves of Jonkershoek and Simonsberg. The town's oak-shaded streets are lined with cafes, boutiques and art galleries. Cape Dutch architecture gives a sense of South Africa's Dutch colonial history, as do the Village Museum's period houses and gardens.
