NS Summer School ’17

Following our collaboration with the University of Antwerp (see our older post), two members of our research group, Marek Suchánek and Peter Uhnák, participated in the Normalized Systems Summer School 2017 in Antwerp. During this very exciting event they learned how to design, analyze, create and customize Normalized Systems and worked on their own projects related to the NS theory and tooling, specifically about visualization, evolvable documents and conceptual modelling. Together with Dr. Robert Pergl, prof. Jan Verelst and prof. Herwig Mannaert they also discussed further broadening and intensifying of the collaboration between CCMi & FIT CTU in Prague, the NSX spin-off and also Faculty of Applied Economics – the largest faculty of the University of Antwerp.

This opens new prospects of  interesting theses topics, research projects and other challenging opportunities. We want to repeat NS Summer School with more students again the next year, as well as to improve and deepen our collaboration continually over time.

DS Portal at the ELIXIR All Hands 2017

As a part of our work within the ELIXIR-CZ and in cooperation with the ELIXIR-NL we are working on Data Stewardship Portal project, which aims to streamline and improve the creation of the Data Management plans primarily for scientific projects in the field of life sciences.

We’ve presented this project at the ELIXIR All Hands 2017 in Rome, where we introduced our approach and future plans during own (4 hour) workshop. Participants had the opportunity to try to work with a preliminary version of the portal as well as edit and create the content (the Knowledge Model). During the workshop as well as a previous poster session we’ve received not only positive feedback, but also interesting suggestions and ideas.

You can take a look at the workshop agenda with presentations, photos and our poster:

We visited Formetis Consultants

FormetisFormetis Consultants, our Dutch industrial partner and sponsor invited our students working on enterprise engineering topics into their headquarters in Boxtel, The Netherlands. We presented our work, got valuable feedback and support from the CEO Steven van Kervel. Prof. Jan Dietz also came to see our progress. The involved topics were:

  • The CIAO! App – a diploma thesis of Bc. Roman Lánský focused on designing a simple messaging and task management application based on the PSI theory and implementing a prototype.
  • Transformation of DEMO models into BPMN – a diploma thesis of Bc. Ondřej Mráz, which continues the work of Štěpán Heller, MSc.: an effort to bring the DEMO rigour into the BPMN world and vice versa: providing an intuitive visualisation of DEMO transactions.
  • Ongoing work on the Action Model in Formetis DEMO Engine done by Bc. Marek Skotnica as his diploma thesis.
  • Bc. Peter Uhnák presented our DynaCASE project and we discussed the synergies with the DEMO Engine.

ESUG 2015

We were present at this year’s European Smalltalk Users’ Group flagship event, which was held in Brescia, Italy. Although the weather was very hot, the conference was COOL! So many big things running in Smalltalk! Iceland’s mobile network, processors manufacturing and, of course, many business systems. Pharo really rocks, Pharo 5 is under massive development, cool stuff planned. Amazing things — you definitely need to check the GT Tools! More things retweeted on @RobertPergl.

Our DynaCASE project was present by its main programmers — Peter Uhnák and Honza Blizničenko — and got a lot of attention from the community. Michal Balda presented his Querier — a new database query system for Pharo inspired by NotORM.

Sad that you missed it? Do not dispair! ESUG 2016 will be in Prague, organised by FIT & CCMi ;-).
