A monograph entitled '20 Years of CEPIS: 20th anniversary logoInformatics in Europe today and tomorrow' which, in honour of the 20th anniversary of CEPIS, gathers contributions from throughout greater Europe to highlight both the unity and the diversity of the IT profession through regional perspectives and thematic areas such as skills, professionalism and the current state of the ICT industry.

The UPENET (UPGRADE European NETwork) section features an article from the Cypriot journal Pliroforiki which  synthesises the available literature and the recent trends in contemporary Computer-Supported Cooperative Learning scholarship, and an article from the Spanish journal Novática which analyses the new WCAG 2.0 Accessibility Guidelines published by the World Wide Web Consortium in December 2008.

The CEPIS NEWS section presents a position paper from the ECDL Foundation outlining why ICT infrastructure should be complemented by investment in skills development.

The monograph of this issue will also be published in Spanish by Novática.
