Threads : Societal challenge

Social and economic consequences of computing are ever increasing.

Society debates about digitalization and computing are beyond account.
(Hadopi law, Net neutrality, freedoms, ...) An optional teaching discipline

pre-graduate students in their last period for school year 2012, all
students in preparatory classes for engineering schools have now
computer science courses for September 2013. Those are important advances.
