The FORC Capacity Building Workshop was organized part of ICTCS’17 to allow project partners to meet with representatives of external experts, academics, industrial representatives, officials, and student associations' representative. The workshop was planned in June 2017 but we opted to delay it till October to have the chance to do it with ICTCS’17 to gather larger audience.
