The Greek Computer Society (GCS/ΕΠΥ), the Dep. of Computer Science and Engineering of the University of Applied Sciences of Thessaly (TEI Thessaly) and the Dep. of Computer Science and Biomedical Informatics of the University of Thessaly, organise the 21st Pan-Hellenic Conference on Informatics (PCI 2017) at Larissa, Greece, on September 28th–30th, 2017.


The Pan-Hellenic Conference on Informatics is organized annually by the Greek Computer Society (GCS/ΕΠΥ). It has been established as one of the most prominent forums for Greek CS scientists to present original and high-quality research on emergent topics of Computer Science. The official language is English and international participation is highly encouraged.


PCI2017 aims to provide an effective communication channel among researchers (universities, research and development centers, start-up centers and incubators), practitioners (SME leaders and managers), decision-makers (government, ministries and state agencies) and entities concerned with the latest research, scientific development and practice on ICT, in order to discuss current, state-of-the-art topics that are of relevance and significance for national competitiveness as well as for sustainable, robust and equitable regional development.


The topics of relevance for the conference papers  include but are not limited to the following:

  • Agile Methods
  • Agent Based Systems
  • Algorithms & Data Structures
