8th Panhellenic Conference
on Informatics 

with international participation 

Nicosia, Cyprus
8-10 November 2001


The Greek Computer Society (GCS), in cooperation with the Cyprus Computer Society  (CCS), the University of Cyprus , and with the support of Cyprus Telecommunications Authority (CYTA) are organizing the 8th Panhellenic Conference on Informatics at Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus Republic during 8-10 November 2001.

The Panhellenic Conference on Informatics is a biannual event established by GCS. The 1st conference took place at Athens (1984), the 2nd at Thessaloniki (1988), the 3rd at Athens (1991), the 4th at Patras (1993), the 5th at Athens (1995), the 6th at Athens (1997) and the 7th at Ioannina (1999).


English will be the official language of the conference. The Greek language will be used only in satellite workshops, which will focus on topics of local  professional, industrial, business and political interests. The conference will run in parallel sessions, whereas invited talks,  panels,  and special interest workshops will be organized. Although the conference is a forum for information exchange between Greek scientists from Greece, Cyprus and Diaspora, the experience is that international participation is significant.
