5th Computer Science Annual Workshop CSAW 2007

Organised by the CS & AI Departments - University of Malta

5-6 November 2007, Malta

CSAW is the main annual Computer Science research workshop in Malta aimed at presenting current research being carried out locally. Currently in its 5th year, CSAW 2007 will be held on 5 and 6 November 2007. The idea of the workshop is for the members of staff and students from the University of Malta and the local industry to present ongoing research activities, and hence to foster research relations between the department and the industry. The workshop also serves to expose undergraduates to the research areas pursued by the department and possible projects that can be undertaken.
