ECI (School of Informatics) has been held yearly since 1987 by the
Computer Science Department at the School of Sciences (FCEN) of the
University of Buenos Aires (UBA), Argentina.

Its main objective is to offer participants high-quality intensive
courses on subjects usually not covered by the regular curriculum.
Attendants to the ECI are graduate and undergraduate students from UBA
and other universities, and practitioners from the
industry/government, both from Argentina and from neighboring
countries. Courses are taught by visiting professors from Universities
and institutions from around the world. This gives participants the
opportunity to learn new research topics and establish links of
academic cooperation. The ECI has repeatedly proven to be an excellent
means for promoting research and development. In previous editions,
ECI was attended by 350 to 800 participants, each taking from one to
three courses.

Throughout these years, ECI has been made possible thanks to the
efforts of many renowned professors and researchers, the cooperation
of the authorities and staff of FCEN-UBA, and the financial support of
several private companies and organizations. Previous editions of ECI
have been supplemented with software, hardware and book presentations
from different companies. Other activities at ECI include talks,
tutorials and seminars, making it an excellent venue for academic and
professional exchange.
