The Workshop INFINIS 2017 will take place on Thursday, October 19, 2017, from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Departamento de Computación, Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Naturales, Universidad de Buenos Aires (map).
During this workshop each team of INFINIS will present their main subjects of research and their perspectives. There are six teams and each presentation will last, at most, 60 minutes. Each presentation will consist of talks and 10 minutes will be devoted to questions and exchanges with the public. The talks are addressed to students and researchers interested in Computer Science. Registration is not required. Everybody is welcome.
