      SSTiC 2013

      Tarragona, Spain

      July 22-26, 2013

      Organized by
      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 75 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


      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.
