A combination of events in Paris on Oct. 7-9 will honor European contributions to computer science and showcase some of the most recent advances both in the science and in the use of informatics.

The fifth edition of the European Computer Science Summit (ECSS) will take place in Paris on October 8-9, 2009, with a special workshop for department heads on Oct. 7 and the first-ever ACM Europe award reception on Oct. 8. ECSS is focused on the place of informatics in science, with the double theme: Informatics Among the Sciences, and Scientific Principles in Informatics.

The speakers are world-class researchers who will present their latest advances and debate the future of the field. Keynote speakers include experts from other disciplines. ECSS includes a wide range of contributions from industry and government. In addition, the ECSS program includes submitted contributions on topics of wide interest to the informatics community as well as panels and workshops, and presentations of Informatics Europe reports and initiatives. 

ECSS is also the venue for the official launch of ACM Europe, a new initiative of the ACM to recognize the contributions of European computer science and expand its services for European ACM members. The deadline for early and discounted ECSS registration is Sept. 15.
