 “I am a member of a special interest group in SI and I am delighted that I can actively participate in the future development of our association. In this way, I have gained access to many attractive topics and lifelong learning programs. This enables me to pursue my professional and private interests in the field of computer science. The SI events, the meetings of the special interest group, and SI’s online offerings allow me to network with many SI members as well as with interesting personalities in the field. My membership in SI has seriously contributed to my credibility when promoting my own professional goals.”
