*Dear Informatics Europe Members, Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to announce that the program of the ECSS 2017 
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 2017 will be held in Lisbon (Portugal) October 
23-25, hosted by the Universidade NOVA de Lisboa. The central theme of 
this year conference is /*"Informatics Connects!"*/.

A key challenge in education and university research for our discipline 
is to properly manage increased “connectivity”. The ongoing digital 
revolution and globalization is deeply affecting education and research 
in Informatics, as well as the role that the domain plays in society. 
Informatics is driving this digital revolution, creating a huge demand 
for specialized graduates and professionals. It is also contributing to 
developing innovative, fundamental approaches and tools for other 
disciplines: data-driven science, personalized medicine, manufacturing, 
architecture, finance and the creatives industries among others. 
Besides, Informatics is a global discipline that remains largely 
unaffected by local or country-specific regulations. That is why 
education and talent-search know no boundaries, as we can see from the 
ever-increasing number of joint programmes, online courses (MOOCs) and 
the presence of major IT companies across all the globe.

ECSS 2017 will gather a selection of distinguished speakers to address 
the challenges that connectivity represents in its various forms. It 
will feature talks on selected “hot” topics, examples of successful 
stories and engaging panel discussions.

Invited Speakers:

  *      Marie-Paule Cani, University of Grenoble INP – Ensimag
  *      João Claro, Universidade do Porto
  *      Nuno Correia, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa
  *      Roberto Di Cosmo, INRIA - Université Paris Diderot
  *      Pierre Dillenbourg, EPFL
  *      Wendy Hall, University of Southampton
  *      Elham Kashefi, University of Edinburgh
  *      Michael Kölling, King’s College
  *      Kurt Mehlhorn, Max Planck Institute for Informatics and
    University of Saarland
