Welcome to BCI 2013

The main objective of the BCI series of conferences is to provide a forum for discussions and dissemination of research accomplishments and to promote interaction and collaboration among scientists from the Balkan countries and the rest of the world, and to encourage involvement of young researchers from the region.

The conference will consist of regular sessions with technical contributions (regular papers) reviewed and selected by an international program committee, as well as of invited talks presented by leading scientists. Different workshops will be held in line with the main conference. The official language of the conference will be English. The conference will be held in parallel with the 17th Panhellenic Conference on Informatics (PCI 2013).

The 6th Balkan Conference in Informatics (BCI) continues the BCI conferences held in Novi Sad (2012), Thessaloniki (2009), Sofia (2007), Ohrid (2005), and Thessaloniki (2003). For more information regarding BCI and past conferences you may visit the official BCI Website.
