Lectures, Informatics Colloquia, and News
16 FebDo not miss the unique opportunity to hear prof. Král, leading world-wide expert in the field of discrete mathematics and algorithms. Daniel Král' is a professor of matematics and informatics at University of Warwick. For his work he received many important awards such as European Prize in Combinatorics 2011 or Philip Leverhulme Prize in Mathematics and Statistics in 2014. He is also one of two Czech scientists who received ERC grant more than once. Lecture "Models of large networks" will be given in English. The lecture will take place on Friday, February 16, 2018 at 11 am in the D3 lecture hall.
20 FebInformatics colloquium 20. 2. 2018, 14:00 lecture hall D2 ao. Univ.-Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr. Renate Motschnig, Faculty of Computer Science, University of Vienna Transforming Communication in Leadership and Teamwork – Why should computer scientists care? Abstract: Numerous sources report that the major reason for ICT-project failure are people- rather than technical issues. Thus, in order to improve project success, the most evident thing to do seems to care about the human factor in ICT projects. This influential “soft”, “fuzzy”, and “complex” factor, however, has tended to be overlooked, such that a number of research gaps at the interface between software engineering and human sciences became apparent and need to be filled. In this talk, my objective is to raise awareness of the salience of communication issues in ICT projects and illustrate, what can be done (or what computer scientists, in particular, can do) scientifically and practically, to fill the research/practice gaps and concurrently improve communication, leadership, and teamwork in ICT projects.
27 FebInformatics colloquium 27. 2. 2018, 14:00 lecture hall D2 asst. prof. Dimitris Sacharidis, Ph.D., Institute of Information Systems Engineering, TU Wien Managing and Analyzing Big Geo-Social Data Abstract: The widespread adoption of online social networks and location-aware mobile devices has resulted in a continuously increasing amount of published user-generated, geo-tagged content. Typical examples include tweets, check-ins, photo/video uploads, route posts (e.g., taxi rides, running trails). This big geo-social data essentially captures people's everyday interactions between the physical and digital world, and presents immense opportunities for creating added value to domains such as location-based services, smart cities, tourism. In this talk, we will present methods for efficiently handling and effectively analyzing large amounts of such data.
"I'd like to thank our academics and students, particularly our doctoral students, for publishing work that has seen the Faculty of Informatics ranked first out of 55 institutions in the area in disciplinary comparisons published by IDEA CERGE in Oborová publikační výkonnost pracovišť výzkumných organizací v ČR v letech 2009-2013.Prof. Jiří Zlatuška
