Fourth International Software Architecture PhD School (ISAPS 2020)

The International Software Architecture PhD School (ISAPS) is a four-day 
intensive workshop that will provide young researchers following a PhD 
and practicing architects from industry the opportunity to learn from 
the leaders in the field the most recent methods, tools, and theories 
produced by top research groups around the world and in industrial 

For whom:
For young researchers and practicing software architects.

Tuesday, June 2nd through Friday, June 5th (full time), 2020.

The school is hosted by the Lorentz center on the campus of the 
University of Leiden, in The Netherlands, a short 30 minutes west of 
3rd Floor Oort Building, Niels Bohrweg 2, Leiden, Netherlands 

School format:
The format combines lectures on cutting-edge software architecture 
topics (mornings) with hands-on sessions on industrial cases (afternoons):
Day 1: The decision-making process in Software Architecture design.
Day 2: Empirical Software Architecture research in collaboration with 
industry. Architecting in Industrial Practice.
Day 3: Hyper-scalable Software Architectures. Pragmatic Software 
Architecture Evaluation.
Day 4: The role of the software architect. Architecture for a data- and 
AI-driven world.

For PhD students, attendance costs are absorbed by donations from 
various companies and organizations, such as SIKS and CGI. There may be 
the possibility of a travel grant (depending on industrial sponsorship). 
Needs for grants should be indicated in the application
  form (see Applications below).

Interested attendees can apply online at http://tiny.cc/isaps2020
SIKS and IPA PhD-students working on the ISAPS topics are strongly 
encouraged to apply. However, the number of seats is limited. 
Applications will be evaluated by the organizers based on need and fit 
within the ISAPS topics. All SIKS and IPA PhD-students will be informed 
about the decision as soon as possible.

The Lorentz Center
The Lorentz Center is a Dutch national center for international 
workshops in all scientific disciplines. Its guiding philosophy is that 
innovative research thrives on interaction between creative researchers. 
Lorentz Center workshops focus on new collaborations and on interactions 
in highly diverse groups of researchers – international and with 
different scientific viewpoints as well as seniority, gender, and culture.
The Lorentz Center receives structural financial support by Leiden 
University, and by the Dutch research councils Netherlands Organisation 
for Scientific Research NWO, Foundation for Fundamental Research on 
Matter FOM, and Technology Foundation STW.

In cooperation with SIKS (www.siks.nl) and IPA (https://ipa.win.tue.nl).
Sponsored by CGI (www.cgi.com).
