Welcome to the 29th annual ACM conference on Innovation and Technology in Computer Science Education (ITiCSE). ITiCSE conference is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Computing Education (SIGCSE), in collaboration with the ACM Europe Council, and Informatics Europe. ITiCSE 2024 will take place in Milan, Italy and it is hosted by Università degli Studi di Milano.
Milan is a city in northern Italy, capital of Lombardy, and the second most populous city proper in Italy after Rome. The city proper has a population of about 1.4 million, while its metropolitan city has 3.26 million inhabitants. Milan hosts seven universities, the biggest one being the Università degli Studi di Milano (locally known as “La Statale”, even if there are two other public universities in town), with approximately 60,000 students and 2000 tenured faculty members organised in 31 departments. La Statale is going to celebrate its 100th birthday in 2024. Milan is easy to reach and it is famous for its wealth of historical and modern sights — the Duomo, one of the biggest and grandest Gothic cathedrals in the world, La Scala, one of the best established opera houses in the globe, the Brera art gallery, with some of the finest artistic works in Europe, the UNESCO’s World Heritage Site “Basilica di Santa Maria delle Grazie”, containing one of the world’s most famous paintings: Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper”. Milan is sometimes described as a paradise for shopping, football, opera, and nightlife.
