Computer science courses: the numbers ( CNR )

In thirty-nine years of activity, the courses in Computer Science organized by the University of Pisa have generated nearly eight thousand graduates. Overall, 5,569 students got their four degree in Computer Science (the top year being 1989 which saw 318 students graduate).

237 have completed their fi ve-year degree in Computer Science and 93 their bachelor’sdegree. With the advent of fi rst and second level degrees, Pisa has produced 1272 fi rst level degree graduates in Computer Science and 84 in Applied Information Sciences, 231 students managed to get a postgraduate degree, and 263 in Information Technology. And fi nally there have been 59 graduates in fi rst degree courses in Computer Science and Economics.

Pisa: opened prestigious collaborations, for example with the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies.

In the same spirit, we are setting up a School of Computer Sciences, on the lines of the Scuola Normale (editor’s note: another school of advanced studies in Pisa), which will operate within the University of Pisa, with scholarships for students funded by public organizations and businesses.

Research in computer science in Pisa has built up to its position of excellence as a result of a long history that began with the CEP.

It is on this tradition that the PhD school is based.

Our new advanced school will give a standard of excellence to the other levels of university education, without the need to get anything by political means.

who is Giorgio Levi? Giorgio Levi, was born in 1942, graduated from Padua University in Electronic Engineering.

He is the head of the Department of Computer Science of Pisa.

He has been in Pisa since 1967, fi rst as a CNR researcher and then as a university lecturer and professor.

In recent years he has been doing research on programming languages and techniques for data analysis.

He is a member of the editorial board of a number of international journals and he is coordinating the Scientifi c Committee for the 50th anniversary celebrations of CEP.

the heritage / 2 three institutes, one soul by Claudio Montani, director of the CNR Research Area of Pisa Basic research and technology transfer: for the Internet, for language resources, for computer applications.

Fifty years after CEP, much of that enterprise survives in the research campus of the Italian National Research Council (CNR) at San Cataldo.

It’s not just the cards, circuits, and the valves that some of the protagonists of that epic adventure still jealously hide away, but also black and white photos, now yellowing, which can be seen in thousands of offi ces.

The legacy of the pioneers of IT in Pisa, or rather Italy, lives on in the technicians and CNR researchers who have followed their footprints, and who belong to the three research institutions (ISTI: Institute of Sciences and Technlogies of Information; IIT, Institute of Information and Telematics; ILC: Institute of Computational Linguistics) who for various reasons sprung up out of the Study Center of on Electronic Calculators (CSCE).

the role of a Research Center of national interest.

Within a short time the affi liation would become permanent with the transformation of the CSCE into an institute of the CNR (IEI: Department of Information Processing).

The CNUCE (the university national center of electronic calculation) then followed suit becoming in 1974 an institute of the CNR.

The IEI and CNUCE represented the best of the two sides of the computer science research: on the one hand, the vocation to theoretical studies, particularly in avant-garde areas, on the other, the pragmatic spirit that took the form of technology transfer and the provision of cutting-edge services.

This then is the real cultural legacy of CEP - absorbed by ISTI as by IIT and ILC - an amazing mechanism with research as its foundation and which continually found opportunities in very high level applications and services.

The Institute for Computational Linguistics (ILC - CNR) came out of the CNUCE in 1969, the year in which the Calculation Center set up the Division of Computational Linguistics, founded and managed by Antonio Zampolli.

The Division became an independent institute of the CNR eleven years later (1980), still under the guidance of its founder.

The name of the ILC is now dedicated to his memory.

The Institute is a hub, not only for the Italian scene, in terms of the complex discipline that it applies to human language computing, mathematics and statistics.

An area of stateof- the-art research, half way between computers and the humanities, which contributes to the dream of being able to provide people with the means for interacting with machines using natural languages.

The merger of IEI and CNUCE took place in 2000 and became operational two years later.

It led to the creation of the Institute of Information Science and Technologies dedicated in its name to the memory of Alessandro Faedo, who was rector of the University of Pisa and president of the CNR.

ISTI is in fact, the sum of the best characteristics of the two institutes whose skills it has absorbed.

It is an incubator for multidisciplinary research and, at same time, the engine of technological development and activities of higher education.

In a sector that moves forward at the speed of light, the Institute has managed to develop points of excellence in the areas of technology for the cultural heritage, software engineering and technologies of knowledge.

And then of course there is the Institute of Informatics and Telematics (IIT-CNR), founded in 2000 from the merger between the Institute for Telematics Applications (an offshoot of CNUCE) and the Institute of Computational Mathematics (part of IEI).

It has been operating since 2002, and delivers excellence where fundamental information research develops the knowhow needed for R&D projects and for running advanced Internet services.

So it is clearly not by chance that it has managed the Register of.

it Internet domains since its founding in 1987, a service on a European- wide level.

LSNN is an independent editor which relies on reader support. We disclose the reality of the facts, after careful observations of the contents rigorously taken from direct sources, we work in the direction of freedom of expression and for human rights , in an oppressed society that struggles more and more in differentiating. Collecting contributions allows us to continue giving reliable information that takes many hours of work. LSNN is in continuous development and offers its own platform, to give space to authors, who fully exploit its potential. Your help is also needed now more than ever!

In a world, where disinformation is the main strategy, adopted to be able to act sometimes to the detriment of human rights by increasingly reducing freedom of expression , You can make a difference by helping us to keep disclosure alive. This project was born in June 1999 and has become a real mission, which we carry out with dedication and always independently "this is a fact: we have never made use of funds or contributions of any kind, we have always self-financed every single operation and dissemination project ". Give your hard-earned cash to sites or channels that change flags every time the wind blows , LSNN is proof that you don't change flags you were born for! We have seen the birth of realities that die after a few months at most after two years. Those who continue in the nurturing reality of which there is no history, in some way contribute in taking more and more freedom of expression from people who, like You , have decided and want to live in a more ethical world, in which existing is not a right to be conquered, L or it is because you already exist and were born with these rights! The ability to distinguish and decide intelligently is a fact, which allows us to continue . An important fact is the time that «LSNN takes» and it is remarkable! Countless hours in source research and control, development, security, public relations, is the foundation of our basic and day-to-day tasks. We do not schedule releases and publications, everything happens spontaneously and at all hours of the day or night, in the instant in which the single author or whoever writes or curates the contents makes them public. LSNN has made this popular project pure love, in the direction of the right of expression and always on the side of human rights. Thanks, contribute now click here this is the wallet to contribute
