The Informatics Association of Turkey (TBD)
, Prof. Dr. Aydın Köksal Computer Engineering Academic Teaching Prize of this year has been given
to Assoc. Dr. Berk Canberk.
Shortly after the introduction of informatics in Turkey in 1971, TBD was established with a great vision of future by a group of half-academics who can be referred as professionals in informatics today; TBD has become a pioneering movement of “civil community” that tries to disseminate “the culture of informatics” with its members from all layers of the society. Total number of its members is over 12.000 at the moment. TBD has six main branches, 13 offices in provinces, and it contributes significantly to the improvement of informatics as a sector in Turkey through TBD - Young organization at 33 universities.
The award ceremony was held on November 6-7, 2019 at the Information Technologies and Communication Authority (BTK) Central Office in Ankara at TBD National Informatics Congress, which was held for the 36th time and has more than 2000 participants.
We congratulate Assoc. Dr. Berk Canberk for his meaningful award and wish him continued success.
