On 13 and 14 September, the DACHS Symposium took place for the twelfth time – for the third time at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT). At this international symposium, professors and lecturers of computer science, business informatics and other computer science-related courses of study meet. They exchange ideas to further develop their teaching content and get to know other pedagogical teaching concepts. Projects and questions of applied research also find their due place in the round. About 25 people took part in this year’s symposium, the majority on site in Deggendorf, the rest virtually. Prof Dr Johannes Grabmeier was responsible for the organisation. The DACHS Symposum is a joint initiative of the universities in Deggendorf in Germany (D), Hagenberg/Upper Austria (A), Biel in Switzerland (CH) and Ljubljana in Slovenia (S). The name DACHS was derived from the abbreviations of the four countries.

The spectrum of topics at this year’s conference ranged from concepts for programming education, creativity and problem-solving techniques in computer science studies, updating and interlocking a software technology teaching module, student participation in computer science education, further developments in logic programming, the presentation of new master’s degree programmes in Artificial Intelligence and Data Science and High Performance Computing / Quantum Computing at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology, teaching concepts in corona times, electronics testing and assessment instruments, through to research projects in AI-based researcher networking, graphics techniques, an energy data reallab, electricity charging optimisation for cars and information on the planned new technology campus in Vilshofen.
