Academic IT Festival is an annual international conference directed especially toward people who show a passionate interest in computer related technology. This event stands out of the crowd because of the fact that it is being organized by students for students and therefore meets their expectations accurately. The Festival is a forum for the exchange of information and experience related to computer technology between experts in the field and auditors. It also serves as a meeting ground for students with similar interests.
Since the very first edition, which took place in 2005, the Festival has been becoming more and more popular. Cracow city had not been offering a similar event that far. Although scientific life has always been thriving at Cracow’s universities, there lacked some substantial contact with what was really going on in computer science both in Poland and in the world. Books and IT magazines ceased to be enough. Our team, consisting of members from academic circles, decided to take up the task of arranging an event on a nationwide scale, which was to break the standstill. And as you can see, it has succeeded.
