INGI Fall 2011 Doctoral School Day on Software Engineering and Programming Systems

Created by Kim Mens at November 09, 2011.

On Tue 29/11/2011, INGI organizes a full-day session of doctoral lectures by confirmed international researchers on the theme of Software Engineering and Programming Systems.

The Computing Science and Engineering pole (INGI) of the Institute of Information and Communication Technologies, Electronics and Applied Mathematics (ICTEAM) at the Universit้ catholique de Louvain is organizing a full-day session of doctoral lectures on the broad theme of Software Engineering and Programming Systems. The program will consist of extended, didactic presentations (about one hour each) on selected topics in computer science, presented by an international panel of confirmed researchers. The presentations will be given in English.

This seminar allows Belgian doctoral researchers to learn about latest advances and trends in the broad field of Software Engineering and Programming Systems and to meet with colleagues researchers from Belgium and abroad, all within a single day. It also offers an opportunity for the presenters to disseminate their research achievements to and to meet their peers in the Belgian academic community.


The lectures will take place in auditorium BARB94, Sainte-Barbe Bldg, Place Sainte Barbe 1, 1348 Louvain-la-Neuve.


The Doctoral School Day is targeted at all Belgian doctoral students but is open to all. Participation will be credited to doctoral students upon request, as part of the GRASCOMP doctoral school programme. Attendance is free but registration is required by subscribing to the course website (see instructions below). Lunch will not be included in the registration (there are plenty of opportunities in the city of Louvain-la-Neuve to get a good and cheap lunch).

To register:

• Visit the GRASCOMP Campus Website at

• If you have not yet, create a user account for yourself. Make sure you provide a valid e-mail address.

• Enrol to course COMP051 with the key "fall2011".
