About Maribor ACM Student Chapter
Welcome to ACM Maribor student chapter. The chapter was established in 2015 by the PhD students from Computer Science Institute at Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Maribor. Our main goal is to share computer science knowledge between different generations of students, while also connecting internationally with other students and ACM chapters across the world.
