"Computação Sem Fronteiras" - "Verão no Campus 2017"

Date: 
Monday, July 24, 2017, 2:00pm - Friday, July 28, 2017, 12:00am

HASLab will take part in the 10th edition of the “Verão no Campus”, which will be held at the University of Minho from the 24th to the 28th of Jully. The motto for this event is “Computação Sem Fronteiras”. As one of the many activities, some members from the HASLab will engage students in how it is to be a real computer scientist for a week. The main goal is to show students the main challenges in the life of a computer scientist and what they think, through games and puzzle solving. This will engage students in bridging the gap between problems and computer programs. With all the planned activities, students will model and program powerful algorithms with applications in areas such as cryptography and bioinformatics. By doing so, they will discover how mathematics are present in many aspects of the every day life.
