PLAIS Bulletin 94
I Reminder: CfP for the Xth SIGSAND/PLAIS EuroSymposium'2017

Witam serdecznie członków PLAISu,

 

przypominam, iż bardzo szybko zbliża się deadline corocznego, flagowego wydarzenia naukowego PLAISu - EuroSymposium’2017(http://eurosymposium.eu/, o którym informowałem już kilkakrotnie. Jest to poniedziałek, 29 maja, godz. 24.00. O tym czasie,springerowski system OCS zamknie możliwość nadsyłania referatów na ES’2017, na co nie mam już żadnego wpływu - taka jest umowa z Wydawcą materiałów konferencyjnych ES’2017 w serii LNBIP. A umów należy dotrzymywać…

 

Tegoroczne EuroSymposium zapowiada się niezwykle interesująco, i nie wynika to tylko z faktu, że jest to najważniejsze wydarzenie naukowe Złotego Jubileuszu 50-lecia Gdańskiej Informatyki Ekonomicznej (1967-2017). Również i dlatego, że wideokonferencyjny Keynote Speech wygłosi legenda światowej informatyki ekonomicznej - prof. Frank Land  z London School of Economics.

 

Zachęcam więc do finalizowania swoich submissions. Wiem, że niektóre osoby aktualnie intensywnie pracują nad swoimi referatami. Pierwsze referaty na EuroSymposium już wpłynęły, są zagraniczne. Otrzymuję też wiele pytań z Polski dot. EuroSymposium i warunków udziału w nim.

 

Zapowiada się więc ekscytujący, mam nadzieję, event J

 

Z pozdrowieniami i do zobaczenia we wrześniu w Sopocie, również  na corocznym PLAIS Annual Meeting,

 

Wrycza
