Dear Colleagues,

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.

*Pre-Summit Workshop For Deans and Department Heads* 

Jointly with the ECSS main Summit, Informatics Europe organises annually 
the *Workshop for Deans and Heads of Informatics Departments*. The aim 
is to address specific challenges, best practices, new approaches and 
practical strategies for heads in Informatics education & research. This 
year the Workshop is dedicated to the topic: *Personal Development*, 
with main focus on special skills and management training needed by 
deans and professors on the one hand; and PhD strategy and career 
training on the other hand.

You can register to the Pre-summit Workshop alone, or for the combined 
Pre-summit Workshop & ECSS 2018.
