ICSOC 2017 successfully concluded

Our congratulations on a rewarding conference Carlos Canal and his co-organzers put in place in Malaga this year. The keynotes were well received, the conference and co-located events were rich in content, a high-level array of more than 140 participants, many of whom are attending ICSOC for years already, had lively discussions, and the weather was just appropriate with sunshine every day and mild temperatures.
