ECI (School of Informatics) has been organized yearly since 1987 by the Computer Science Department at the School of Sciences (FCEN) of the University de Buenos Aires (UBA), Argentina.

Its main objective is to offer participants high-quality intensive courses on subjects usually not covered by the regular curricula. Attendants to the ECI are graduate and undergraduate students from UBA and other universities, and practitioners from the industry/government, from both Argentina and neighboring countries. Courses are taught by visiting professors from Universities and institutions from around the world. This gives participants the opportunity to learn new research topics and establish links of academic cooperation. The ECI has repeatedly proven to be an excellent means for promoting research and development. In previous editions, ECI was attended by 350 to 800 participants, each taking from one to three courses.

Throughout these years, ECI has been possible thanks to the effort of many renowned professors and researchers, the cooperation of the authorities and staff of FCEN-UBA, and the financial support of several private companies and organizations. Previous editions of ECI have been supplemented with software, hardware and book exhibits from different companies. Other activities at ECI include talks, tutorials and seminars, making it an excellent venue for academic and professional exchange.
