On March 13-16, Kraków will host an international meeting of the most distinguished experts in the field of IT. Each student, enthusiast and professional will have an opportunity to attend a number of interesting lectures and workshops
Over 40 lectures and workshops will be held during the three-day festival. Internationally renowned computer scientists and IT experts will be among this year’s speakers, including Thomas H. Cormen, the man who humanized algorithmics, the co author of a textbook well known to every computer science student, Andrew S. Tanenbaum, the creator of Minix system, which was the forerunner of Linux, and Philip Wadler, one of the authors of Haskell programming language.
The student IT festival has been organised for twelve years by students from computer science research societies of four Kraków universities: the Jagiellonian University, the AGH University of Science and Technology, Cracow University of Technology and the University of Economics. They organise the whole event by themselves in their free time, attracting about 4500 attendees each year.
Every year, the event is hosted by a different university. The 13th Student IT Festival is organised by the AGH, with the JU Computer Science Students’ Association as one of its collaborators. More information about the event can be found on its website and its Facebook page.
