SACLA (the Southern African Computer Lecturers’ Association) is a formal association of academics, involved in education, lecturing and teaching of Computer Science (CS), Information Systems (IS) and related Information Technology (IT) subjects at universities and other Higher Education Institutions throughout Southern Africa.  The main activity of SACLA is an annual conference, at which issues relating to CS, IS and IT education, teaching and research in Southern Africa are presented and discussed.

The papers presented at the annual conference are published in accredited conference proceedings and since 2016, selected papers have been published in an accredited journal publication. Each year the SACLA program committee is committed to keeping the standard of papers earmarked for Journal publication on a very high standard, to ensure that we can continue to publish selected papers in the accredited journal.
