Workshops and Tutorials

Workshops and tutorials provide our participants with an opportunity to gain extra knowledge and practical skills from selected experts, who share their experience with the audience on topics related to the conference theme, i.e. on any topic expanding the computing innovation via fusion with other disciplines and communities, as well as on empowering diversity within the computing community. While workshops are having some hands-on interactive elements and limited capacity, tutorials are usually more frontal (lecture by the presenters) with unlimited capacity. 

Please make sure to select the workshops and tutorials you will attend during your registration. We thank all authors who submitted their workshop/tutorial proposals.

▼ WORKSHOP: Industry Case Studies – Bridging the Gap between Researchers and Practitioners

Case studies are one of the most worthwhile forms of collaborative research. However, establishing and maintaining collaborations between researchers and practitioners is a challenging task.The organisers of  this workshop will share their experience in running case studies and discuss what to expect from practitioners. In an interactive format, the experiences of the participants will be collected and discussed.

▼ WORKSHOP: Hedy: A gradual language for programming education

Learning the syntax of programming languages can be hard, especially for younger children. Block-based languages like Scratch remove the issues of syntax, but when children transfer to textual languages like Python, the syntax can get in the way of learning. To address this problem, Felienne Hermans, associate professor at Leiden University has created Hedy.

In this workshop, Felienne introduces the pedagogy behind Hedy, shows examples of programs created by kids and reports on technical challenges. Hedy is open source, free to use via  any browser and available in 7 different languages. Hedy was launched in early 2020 and since then over 500.000 programs have been created by children worldwide. Try Hedy at www.hedycode.com.

▼ WORKSHOP: Design a linear regression model in python for predictive analysis

Regression is an established statistical technique with an enormous number of tutorials online. The added value of this workshop is getting the audience to apply this technique easily using some beautiful libraries available in Python and reap the benefit of these in an innovative manner to solve real life problems they come across.

▼ TUTORIAL: Attracting, retaining, encouraging, and inspiring women to pursue a career in Computer Science – a Norwegian best practice

Women are underrepresented in Computer Science disciplines at all levels, from undergraduate and graduate studies to participation and leadership in academia and industry. Increasing female representation in the field is a grand challenge for academics, policy makers, and society. The main goal of this tutorial is to introduce the holistic approach of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology to attract, retain, encourage, and inspire women to pursue a career in Computer Science. The Girl Project Ada (www.ntnu.edu/girls) and IDUN’s unique Scientific Mentoring Program offer research work in groups of peers, networking, career planning, and application writing courses.
