Dear Colleagues and friends,
I would like to welcome you to the eighth issue of the DESCnet newsletter. From the events planned within the DESCnet project, the second AESC Convention is of special significance. This time the Convention will be held in Tbilisi and will be jointly organised by New Vision University and Ilia State University. We will do our best to make sure that Tbilisi Convention can build on the successes of the first Convention held in April 2017 in Instanbul and provide a forum for lively discussions, exchange of views and networking.
