Registrations Open

We are happy to announce that the program of the ECSS 2018 is now online and registrations are open. As in previous years the program is very exciting, with some of the Europe's most distinguished academics on the stage, the Summit will not be short of inspiration and stimulation. The ECSS 2018 will be held in Gothenburg (Sweden) October 8-10 at Chalmers Conference Center. The central theme of this year conference is "Informatics Transforms and Renews".

Informatics has become a pervasive element of our reality that is transforming essentially all areas of science, technology and society, bringing with it new insights and new opportunities, yet also new risks and challenges. At the ECSS 2018, we are aiming to explore this continuing process of transformation and renewal set in motion by Informatics and discuss radical Informatics ideas that are emerging now and impacting the future.

ECSS 2018 will gather a selection of excellent speakers to address the opportunities and challenges that the Informatics transformation brings about; it will feature talks on selected “hot” topics, panel discussions and examples of successful stories.

Invited Speakers:

  • Luca Cardelli, Microsoft Research and Oxford University
  • Mark Coeckelbergh, University of Vienna
  • Per Delsing, Chalmers University of Technology
  • Georgi Dimitrov, European Commission, Directorate General Education and Culture
  • Amy Loutfi, Örebro University
  • Wendy Mackay, INRIA
  • John Shawe-Taylor, University College London
  • Judith Simon, University of Hamburg
  • Klaus Tochtermann, ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics
  • Hannu Toivonen, University of Helsinki.
