Prof. Jarke Presents Keynote Talk at 650 year Celebration of the University of Vienna

Founded in 1365 by Archduke Rudolph, the University of Vienna is the oldest university in the (currently) German-speaking countries. As part of the 650th anniversary celebration, Prof. Matthias Jarke presented a keynote talk on history and challenges of the University of Vienna’s Computer Science Faculty, where he had chaired the Scientific Advisory Board since its founding in 2005.

In two additional keynotes, Prof. Mike Williams, formerly chief curator of the Silicon Valley computer museum in Mountain View, and Pulitzer Prize Winner Douglas Hofstadter , Indiana University, went further back into the history of mathematics and informatics in Vienna, highlighting accomplishments by early researchers in Vienna and especially the fundamental results of Kurt Gödel.
