The Escuela de Ciencias Informáticas (ECI) is held annually at
Departamento de Computación, Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Naturales,
Universidad de Buenos Aires, since 1987.

The goal of ECI is to help Computer Science students of UBA and other
Universities and professionals to strengthen and enlarge their skills
through intensive, top-level, post-graduate courses about topics not
covered by the regular curricula. These courses are taught by
Lecturers of other Universities from all over the world. This offers
participants the opportunity to establish links of academic
cooperation, as well as promoting research and development activities.

Each year, between 400 to 800 people participate in ECI, taking one,
two or three courses each. Among them, there are numerous students and
lecturers from other Universities in Argentina and neighbour

The organization of ECI is possible thanks to the generous
contribution of prestigious professors and researchers from world-wide
institutions, the support of Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Naturales,
the collaboration of authorities and personnel, and the financial
support of private and public companies and institutions.
