SI is celebrating its 40th anniversary! Emerging out of the Swiss Chapter of the ACM in 1983, the Swiss Informatics Society has been representing the interests of IT professionals in Switzerland for the last four decades. To commemorate this moment, we cordially invite all of our members to SI’s 40th Anniversary Celebration on November 17th at the Hotel Schweizerhof in Bern.

The celebration will include talks on “DNA as Data Storage” and “Post-Quantum Cryptography” as well as a panel discussion on the Future of Computer Science, followed by a gala dinner. Save the date and join us on this momentous day!
