*[Report|Acad_Main/News/Informatics/NEFI_Bergen2012/NEFI_2012] with photos
*[Program as also shown below|Program of New Frontiers in Informatics_07_September.pdf]\\
Prior to the [General Assembly and the Annual Meeting of Academia Europaea|Acad_Main/Plenary_Conferences/Bergen_2012] the Informatics Section is organizing a workshop for all members of Academia Europaea who are interested to participate. There is no extra registration fee. Academia and particularly Informatics Section encourages all interested members to participate in the workshop!
!Subject of NEFI:
Informatics grows dynamically in our times and also affects many other sciences. Academia Europaea thus has decided to organize a Workshop on new frontiers and directions of Informatics. This is very timely and will help the field itself via the proposals and ideas to be announced at the Workshop. The talks are meant to be comprehensible for members of the Informatics Section who are not specialists in the particular area of the talks.
!Other Information: 
The program committee consists of (in alphabetical order) Bergstra, Jan (U. Amsterdam) and Spirakis, Paul (Chair, U. Patras and CTI).
