Mission Statement

The main objective of the 2nd Conference on Applications in Information Technology is to foster rich creativity in students’ research works and to encourage students and young scientists to participate actively in open discussions with their colleagues. This conference is a place for the scientific presentations of young researchers representing not only the universities organizing this event but also many partner universities from all over the world. This conference accumulates good traditions established in the past conferences including The Conference on Humans and Computers in 1998-2010, its successor, The 2012 Joint International Conference on Human-Centered Computer Environments and The 2015 International Workshop on Applications in Information Technology.

Proceedings (2010-2015)
