DIKU Alumni Day 2021

50 years ago, computer science really took shape in Denmark. Since Peter Naur defined the concept of “datalogi” (datalogy) and founded the Department of Computer Science at the University of Copenhagen - called DIKU - computer science researchers and students have formed the basis for our society's accelerating technological transformation, and today, Denmark is the European champion in digitisation and number three worldwide. It is a story that officially started in 1970 when DIKU was founded as the first computer science department in Denmark, for which we celebrate our 50th anniversary in 2021 - with a one year delay due to corona.

DIKU Alumni Day is therefore this year anniversary themed, and we turn up the festivities. Mark your calendars - more about the program will follow soon. We start as always at 4 pm. with the general assembly of the DIKU Alumni Association and the alumni day itself follows from 5 pm.
