SSTiC 2013

Tarragona, Spain

July 22-26, 2013

Organized by:

Research Group on Mathematical Linguistics (GRLMC)

Rovira i Virgili University



SSTiC 2013 will be an open forum for the convergence of top class well
recognized computer scientists and people at the beginning of their
research career (typically PhD students) as well as consolidated

SSTiC 2013 will cover the whole spectrum of computer science by means of
more than 70 six-hour courses dealing with hot topics at the frontiers
of the field. By actively participating, lecturers and attendees will
share the idea of scientific excellence as the main motto of their
research work.


Graduate students from around the world. There are no pre-requisites in
terms of the academic degree the attendee must hold. However, since
there will be several levels among the courses, in the description of
some of them reference may be made to specific knowledge background.

SSTiC 2013 is appropriate also for people more advanced in their career
who want to keep themselves updated on developments in the field.

Finally, senior researchers will find it fruitful to listen and discuss
with people who are main references of the diverse branches of computing


At least 8 parallel sessions will be held during the whole event.
Participants will be able to freely choose the courses they will be
willing to attend as well as to move from one to another.
