Nearly 500 people gathered in Poznan, Poland for the World Computer Congress (WCC2018) earlier this month.  

Delegates came from 45 countries around the world, although the vast majority were from across Europe and in particular, hundreds of Poles took advantage of the opportunity afforded by having the event staged in their homeland.

WCC2018 included four keynote talks, 11 invited speakers, 11 parallel conferences, four workshops, an Oxford debate, live Enigma demonstration and link to Bletchley Park and various IFIP meetings, including its General Assembly.

With keynote presentations from luminaries including Leslie Valiant of Harvard University, cryptography expert, Jan Camenisch, celebrated data scientist, Wil van der Aalst and Shamila N Sirimanne of UNICTAD, attendees had a unique opportunity to hear from world-leading authorities.
