Computer science Definition from Science & Technology Dictionaries & Glossaries
Telecommunication Standard Terms
The discipline that is concerned with methods and techniques relating to data processing performed by automatic means.
Web Dictionary of Cybernetics and Systems
The study of the use, design and CONSTRUCTions of (largely digital ) computer s. Computer science heavily relies on mathematical (see mathematics ) and engineering insights. In spite of its mathematically sophisticated, academically demanding, and economically profitable appearance, its body of generally acceptable fundamental laws or principles, is small. A more appropriate name for this "state of the art"-like body of knowledge would be computer technology. (Krippendorff )

Wikipedia English - The Free Encyclopedia
Computer science is the scientific and practical approach to computation and its applications. It is the systematic study of the feasibility, structure, expression, and mechanization of the methodical procedures (or algorithms) that underlie the acquisition, representation, processing, storage, communication of, and access to information, whether such information is encoded as bits in a computer memory or transcribed in genes and protein structures in a biological cell. A computer scientist specializes in the theory of computation and the design of computational systems.
