SICSA-funded places available at The Internet at 100 event, with Dr Vint Cerf

We are very pleased to be a sponsor for the forthcoming “The Internet at 100” event, which culminates in a talk by Dr Vint Cerf.  A limited number of SICSA-funded places are available at the event, which takes place on Monday 22nd June at the University of St Andrews.


Dr Vint Cerf, one of the founders of the Internet, will be awarded an honorary degree by the University of St Andrews.  In honour of Dr Cerf’s visit to the University, the School of Computer Science will be hosting an event, culminating with a talk by Dr Cerf.

The event will take place in the Medical and Biological Science (Medical School) Main Auditorium, University of St Andrews.

The Internet is, of course, not 100 years old. It’s not even quite 50 years old, but the talks at this event will look at its history, its current state, and forward to what it might look like at 100.


SICSA have sponsored a limited number of places for staff working within SICSA member institutions.  If you would like to register for a place:
