Are you interested in computer science? Do you want to learn more about the fields that compose it?

The ACM AUTh Student Chapter is hosting a series of lectures from distinguished speakers throughout May, giving everyone the chance to get informed about trending issues that concern both scientists and professionals in the field.

Our team quickly adapted to organizing online events, which has led to an expansion of our audience beyond the local tech community of our city, as we’ve already received positive feedback from students and graduates of various university departments across the country. At the same time, hosting virtual events has enabled us to invite speakers from all over the world, such as professors from the most prestigious universities and skilled individuals working in reputable tech companies.

So, if you want to make the best out of the situation and attend a wide variety of lectures on topics like cyber security, artificial intelligence and distributed computing, we’re inviting you to participate in this event, with the ultimate goal of bringing the tech community closer and promoting the interest in computer science to a greater number of people!
