This year the conference will host 70 full paper presentations, 20 work in progress presentations and 25 poster presentations from students at the 16 Telkom Centres of Excellence (CoEs), says the company.

Alphonzo Samuels, Telkom’s managing executive for Network Infrastructure Provisioning and conference chairman says Satnac offers students the ideal opportunity to showcase their research and network with industry leaders. “The conference also provides industry the opportunity to come and see these future industry leaders in action,” says Samuels.

The Telkom CoEs have been established across the country at various universities, making it the largest coordinated research effort in the ICT sector in SA, according to Telkom. To date the programme has produced approximately 2500 Doctoral and Masters level graduates.

According to the statement, 41 Telkom bursars conducted their research at the various CoEs in the last year. This year, 15 of these students completed their research and have been employed at Telkom. Currently, 33 Telkom bursars are conducting their research at the 16 CoEs across the country.

"It is often said that there is too little interaction between academic institutions and industry,” says Samuels. “Satnac provides that opportunity for industry to influence tertiary institutions to become more outcome-focused and prepare engineers for their roles when they enter the workplace.” Registrations can be completed online.
