This mailing list is a low traffic list to stay informed about major events in the programme at AIMS South Africa and across the network. We will announce vacancies, study opportunities, research positions, or a major event like our annual graduation or annual report. We will also inform you of the arrival of academic visitors, weekly seminars, and general news of interest to those near AIMS South Africa.
This mailing list started at AIMS South Africa is intended for people who studied, worked, or is in some way connected to any AIMS institute, but it is open to the public for anyone interested in socialising with the AIMS community.
It contains mostly information about opportunties for AIMS alumni, such as external conferences and workshops, short schools, job offers, or (non-AIMS) events of interest both in Africa and abroad. It may however also contain general discussions about Science, Technology, Academia and Development in Africa.
The focus of this mailing list is the use of Free Software in universities in the developing world. Although our speciality is supporting scientists running Ubuntu, more general discussion or questions are welcome.
