||SpaRCIM - The First Spanish Conference on Informatics (CEDI 2005) is to take place between 13-16 September, 2005. While national conferences are traditionally organized in several specific topics, in this case, all are to take place simultaneously and in the same location. The main goal is to join the Spanish informatics research community in order to demonstrate scientific advances, discuss specific problems and improve the visibility of this area in Spain, while emphasizing its role in the age of the information society.
CEDI will be organized in a 'federated conference' format, joining several more specific symposia in areas including Artificial Intelligence, Software Engineering and Databases, Programming Languages, Parallelism and Compute Architecture, Computer Graphics, Concurrency, Soft-Computing, Pattern Recognition, Natural Language Processing, Ubiquitous Computing and Human-Computer Interaction.
In addition to the scientific activities of each symposium, the conference will organize a number of invited talks, round tables, social events and a gala dinner, at which several awards will be announced, recognizing the efforts of some colleagues in promoting the growth of the area in Spain.
More than 1000 researchers are expected to attend the conference. The event will be funded by the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science, and is sponsored by SpaRCIM.
The conference is organized by the Department of Computer Science at the University of Granada. It will be chaired by Alberto Prieto from the University of Granada, with Juan José Moreno Navarro (UPM and SpaRCIM director) as Program Chair.
