Great Ideas in ICT

Professors:Leonardo Querzoni, et alt.

Full description

Once every few years the information and communication technology community is shaken by some results that fundamentally impact several core topics. These results often have strong consequence on real systems, and thus, finally, impact our everyday life as well. This course has the goal of introducing the attendees to several breakthroughs, representative of different areas, showing the practical impact they had on ICT as it is today. Lectures will be delivered by professors and researchers from the department of computer science (DI), the department of computer, control, and management engineering Antonio Ruberti (DIAG) and the department of Information, communication and electronic engineering (DIET).
Schedule: from June 3 to July 8
