ORGANIZATION

The GII Doctoral School in Computer Engineering is organized by
GII (Gruppo Ingegneria Informatica), in collaboration with GRIN
(Gruppo di Informatica), as a common educational place for the
doctoral university students from Italy and abroad with strong
motivation towards Computer Engineering and Computer Science
disciplines and applications. The GII school aims to be an
international forum where doctoral students may meet, discuss
and learn.

The school contributes to the education of students providing
thematic lectures on relevant scientific and technological
topics and occasions to meet and share experiences with
colleagues and teachers. The model of the schools is that of a
"full immersion" experience far from the usual activities of
the students in their departments.

Every year a program is proposed that is focused on relevant
topics covering foundational and research aspects as well as
social and economic implications and their applicative fallout.
In this respect, besides members of the academia, also experts
from industry, public administration and private companies are
invited as lecturers.

The school comprises assessments of activity and involvement of
the participants accordingly to suggestions of the teachers.
The evaluations may be reported to the students' institutions
to be converted in educational credits.

The school has been hosted in Rovereto (1995), Pavia (1996),
Benevento (1997), Como (1998), Torino (1999 and 2000), Volterra
(2002), Siena (2003), Benevento (2004), Siena (2005), Padova
(2006), Palermo (2007), and L'Aquila (2008). An average of 50
students per year has taken part to the school.
