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

Its main objective is to offer participants high-quality intensive
courses on subjects usually not covered by the regular curricula.
Attendants to the ECI are graduate and undergraduate students from UBA
and other universities, and practitioners from the
industry/government, from both Argentina and 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 possible thanks to the effort 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 exhibits from
different companies. Other activities at ECI include talks, tutorials
and seminars, making it an excellent venue for academic and
professional exchange.
