After the great success of ECSS 2009 in Paris, the dates for the European Computer Science Summit 2010 have been announced: Oct 11-13, with Oct. 11 devoted to the department chair workshop and Oct. 12-13 to the conference proper. Mark your calendars now!
Most exciting, ECSS is moving to the Eastern part of the continent for the first time: the conference will take place in Prague, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, hosted by the Czech Technical University with participation from Charles University which will invite us to its historic Carolinum building for the conference dinner.
The program chair is Gerti Kappel from TU Vienna and the conference co-chairs are Pavel Tvrdik from the Czech Technical University and I. Jørgen Staunstrup from the IT University of Denmark will chair the Department Chair Workshop. More workshops are planned, in particular one on how best to prepare for European research funding.
The first keynote speaker has already been announced: Moshe Vardi from Rice University, famous not only for his contributions to program analysis but also for his astounding work in reinventing Communications of the ACM as its editor-in-chief since 2007. Many more speakers and events will be announced in the coming months.
