1st Cyprus Workshop on Computing

Friday, 4th of October 2013, European University Cyprus

In recent decades we have seen significant advances in Computing and a proliferation of its applications in a number of disciplines. There is no doubt this has had a tremendous impact on society and has allowed us to make significant progress in addressing fundamentals problems in science and engineering. This is the first of a series of workshops organized by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of European University Cyprus (EUC) in which we aim to discuss recent developments in Computing and its applications.
