EG-ICE is the acronym for the European Group for Intelligent Computing in Engineering. The primary goals of the group are to promote advanced informatics research across Europe by improving contact between researchers, fostering research collaboration and enhancing awareness of the latest developments. With this latter aim in mind, the group maintains active contact with similar groups in countries outside Europe and encourages membership of non-Europeans. The group has a further aim to increase the awareness of industry of advanced informatics as well as the economic benefits that can be gained by implementation. To achieve its aims, the group runs a yearly workshop and is active in the promotion, dissemination and exchange of ideas in order to provide effective links between research, industry and teaching.
