      SSTiC 2013


      Tarragona, Spain


      July 22-26, 2013


      Organized by:

      Research Group on Mathematical Linguistics (GRLMC)

      Rovira i Virgili University








      SSTiC 2013 will be an open forum for the convergence of top class well recognized computer scientists and people at the beginning of their research career (typically PhD students) as well as consolidated researchers.


      SSTiC 2013 will cover the whole spectrum of computer science by means of more than 70 six-hour courses dealing with hot topics at the frontiers of the field. By actively participating, lecturers and attendees will share the idea of scientific excellence as the main motto of their research work.




      Graduate students from around the world. There are no pre-requisites in terms of the academic degree the attendee must hold. However, since there will be several levels among the courses, in the description of some of them reference may be made to specific knowledge background.


      SSTiC 2013 is appropriate also for people more advanced in their career who want to keep themselves updated on developments in the field.


      Finally, senior researchers will find it fruitful to listen and discuss with people who are main references of the diverse branches of computing nowadays.




      At least 8 parallel sessions will be held during the whole event. Participants will be able to freely choose the courses they will be willing to attend as well as to move from one to another.
