Austrian Computer Science Day 2014

Annually this event aims to strengthen the networking between computer scientists nationwide and to provide a communication platform for highlighting the excellence of Austrian computer science.

Distinguished computer scientists will present a variety of attractive topics, illustrating the broad scope and the impact of national research. Similar to last year, eight researchers from different computer science departments at national and international universities will give an overview over the computer science research done in Austria. Furthermore, there will be included a poster session in order to allow PhD students to present and discuss their work with the community.
