Computer Science



Advanced Schools present the cutting edge of research to young academics, who learn about the latest advances in their disciplines from world-class scholars.

The annual Advanced School in Computer Science and Engineering provides the forum for learning about current computer-focused scholarship, examining the scientific foundations of the field, discussing its application in industry, and exploring future directions.

The General Director of the School is multiple-prize winner, Professor Moshe Vardi.
