Informatics Europe New Website
Posted by Cristina Pereira on 27 September 2011
Informatics Europe is proud to introduce its new website. After several months in a project of complete redesign and development, the new Informatics Europe website is now online.
Along with a vibrant new look, the site features enhanced tools, a password protected area for sharing information restricted to the members of the association and two brand new online services:
- The Research & Education Directory
- The Informatics Jobs Service
The R&E Directory of Informatics Europe includes a database of academic institutions conducting Research and offering Education in Informatics in Europe and neighboring areas and provides access to more detailed information presented by the institutions.
The Informatics Jobs Service is a specialized forum for the advertisement of scientific positions (e.g.: scientific researcher, post-doc, professor, etc) in Informatics, Computing, Computer Science, Information Science, Information Technology or other closely related fields. The service is completely free of charge to members of Informatics Europe, all members are entitled unlimited job advertisements posting. As an special introductory offer, only in the first year, the service is also free to non-members of the association.
The website has a clear and well-structured layout with appropriate drop-down menus that lead to different sections. It is based on an open source Content Management System, allowing for its contents to be updated dynamically. Latest entries in the Informatics Europe blog are now visible through the new website, while sharing tools and links to social media platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc. are also now integrated.
All the information present on the old website is still accessible on the new one, but arranged in a more intuitive way. You can still find all the details about:
- the ECSS conferences series
- the membership and how to become a member
- the list of members
- the Informatics Europe reports
- the Department Evaluation initiative
- the Curriculum Best Practices Award
- the Computer Science Event List
As it is difficult to describe in a few lines everything that you can find in our new website, we warmly invite you to explore it.
The project of design and development of the new Informatics Europe website was conceptualized and executed by the group makebelieve from Athens, Greece, managed by Cristina Pereira, Secretary General of Informatics Europe, and technically directed by Enrico Nardelli, Board Member of Informatics Europe.
We look forward to receiving your comments and suggestions about the new website.
