At this year’s Conference, presentations of scientific and professional papers, results of international research projects and a two-day EuroCC workshop entitled “2nd High Performance Computing, High Performance Data Analytics, and Artificial Intelligence Workshop” were organized. The main topics of IT 2022 discussed at this year’s conference are the development and application of information and communication technologies in all spheres of science, education, industry and society in general. Over 30 scientific papers were presented at the conference, including papers in the field of the Internet of Things, high-performance computing and artificial intelligence. The conference and workshop were attended by about 100 participants.
EuroCC project was presented by Dr Luka Filipovic in the session dedicated to presentation of project results for the projects implemented in Montenegro and the region.
