We invite users to attend Scientia’s Annual User Conference and explore this year’s theme:
Creative solutions to scheduling.
The Scientia Annual User Conference is the largest gathering of the Scientia user community. The programme consists of both invited and user-contributed presentations, as well as updates from Scientia colleagues.
The invited keynote and plenary lectures cover a broad spectrum of topics ranging from inspirational and technical solutions to general educational topics of current interest.
We are pleased to announce that Rudy Oude Vrielink, University of Twente will be giving a plenary address at the conference. Rudy has a background in Organisational and change management, business management, and strategic management for organisations in the notforprofit sector. His research interests include education logistics and adaptive timetabling in higher education.
User-contributed presentations are typically organised as breakout sessions covering topics of special interest, together with some of the broad interest delivered as plenary sessions.
