FESI: III Forum on Education in Information Systems


Date: May 18, 2016

The Forum on Education in Information Systems (FESI) aims at providing a discussion about graduate and post-graduate degree in Information Systems (IS) in Brazil. The FESI is co-located to SBSI when relevant issues about IS degree must be discussed by the IS brazilian community.

In 2013 and 2014, the FESI had promoted discussions about the review and update of the Brazilian Computer Society reference curricula in order to be in accordance to the National Curricula Guidelines (DCNs) for graduate courses in Computer Science area, authorized by the National Council on Education. Members of IS community have continuously follow up this and other discussions about the subject.

In 2016, the SBC Education board of directors had defined, as a goal for the next years, the conclusion of the review of the reference curricula of the Computer Science area courses, based on the DCNs approved in 2012. The hope is that this review process be accomplished in a collaborative way by the specific related communities.

The III FESI is an initiative of the SBC Education Committee and of the Special Committee on IS with the purpose of contributing to this discussion. The forum congregates IS course coordinators, professors and students to discuss and elaborate the reference curricula for the Brazilian IS graduate courses, to be sealed by SBC.

We invite all IS course coordinators, professors or students to attend the III FESI in order to contribute to the discussions for the reference curricula elaboration. You will be contributing to the definition of the IS education strategies in Brazil.

Details about the forum program will be available soon.
