*Dear Informatics Europe Members, Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to announce that the full  program of the ECSS 2015 is now 
online and registrations are open. As in previous years the program is 
very exciting, with some of the world's most distinguished academics on 
the stage, the Summit will not be short of inspiration and stimulation.

The ECSS 2015 will be held in Vienna, Austria, October 12-14, hosted by 
the Faculty of Informatics, Vienna University of Technology. The central 
theme of this year conference is /*"Informatics in the Future - in the 
Year 2025"*/. Informatics as the science behind IT has two faces: 
Informatics ´in itself´ and Informatics ´for others´ as a tool or 
methodological approach in other sciences and application fields. It is 
interdisciplinary quasi by nature. How will all these aspects and 
interconnections evolve? How will computing scientists need to evolve? 
How will our institutes and departments cater for that evolution? These 
and other critical aspects related to Informatics in the future will 
take centre stage at the ECSS 2015 with inspiring speakers propelling us 
into the future.
