Serbia celebrated its first Day of Computer Experts on 18th November this year, marking the day with a conference on the premises of “Mihajlo Pupin” institute in Belgrade.

The Informatics Association of Serbia made the decision at its general assembly earlier in the year, choosing 18th November as the anniversary of the ETRAN conference in 1960 when the first domestic computer named “CER 10” was promoted.

The inaugural Day of Computer Experts this month included presentations about Serbian IT industry success stories as well as initiatives to further improve the IT sector in Serbia. The highlight of the conference was a short panel held by two computer expert veterans, Dusan Hristovic and Petar Vrbavac – the creators of CER 10.
