We are very glad to inform the incorporation to domusBITae consortium during this summer of two teams from the University of Szeged, Hungary, and Aalborg University Copenhagen, Denmark. The former enriches the consortium with an historical and high-technology background from the Library and Infomation Science pole; the later with their innovative approaches in media technology. The heads of both teams, Lazlo Karvalics and Luis Bruni respectively, will also contribute from the expertise of their outstanding scientific works to the Science Advisory Board of domusBITae.
Lazlo and Luis, Cordially welcome to domusBITae, and thank you for your support.
