Official release of the website

Published: Sunday, 30 March 2014

We are happy to announce the Official Release of the DEVASSES project website.

With the end of the Project Logo Contest, the website is complete. This also concludes a preview period that allowed the project researchers to register in the website and suggest modification. The project now includes new features and both for general public and project collaborators, and constitutes an key tool for communication and sharing of resources among the project researchers.

The logo selected in the Contest was presented by a team of UC researchers led by Ivano Irrera, to whom will be awarded the contest prizes. Congratulations to the winners. Here follows a preview of the Logo that was already applied to the website and project documentation:
