“The Two Pillars” — IC3K 2019 Keynote Speech

Interested in the foundations of conceptual modelling? You may like to watch the keynote speech of Robert Pergl given in Vienna, September 2019.

Abstract:

In this keynote, I discuss two pillars of intellectual human endeavour: naming and hierarchies. I dig into the essence of these corner-stones of conceptualisation and explore their presence, significance and forms in various disciplines. Challenges of naming and hierarchies in engineering disciplines are discussed and lessons learned are formulated.

2nd Annual GO FAIR INs Meeting

This year, we again attended GO FAIR Implementation Networks Meeting (this time in Hamburg) with our international project Data Stewardship Wizard.Within its Implementation Networks, GO FAIR actively supports the implementation of FAIR principles – Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability a Reusability. The main topic was convergence in terms of finding and reusing standard solutions. The meeting was fascinating, full of exciting information on the border of information technology and work with data in the field of Life Science. From the perspective of our project, this was a great success as we have been mentioned in several presentations by speakers from various major European institutions. At the same time, we made new contacts and started cooperation with others.

A half-round EOMAS workshop took place

International Workshop on Enterprise & Organizational Modeling and Simulation (EOMAS) is a workshop that has been organized by CCMi for several years in partnership with its partners. This year, his 15th edition was held in Rome, again as a co-located event with the renowned CAiSE conference.

This year’s event was very successful, EOMAS enjoyed plentiful participation and interest, and very interesting and lively discussions took place. In this year’s edition, a considerable number of contributions from CCMi members were present: Marek Suchánek, Vojtěch Knaisl, Jan Slifka and David Šenkýř presented their contributions.

The participants also heard a very engaging and inspiring keynote by prof. Jan Verelst of the University of Antwerp, who lectures our popular subject MI-NSS.

This year’s novelty was a “Master & Doctoral Consortium”, which also gives skilful Master and Doctoral students the opportunity to present their results and, in particular, get feedback from prominent experts.

The organizing team is already looking forward to the EOMAS 2020. So, see you in Grenoble, France!

TEMOS at ICSOFT 2018

During the 13th international conference ICSOFT on 26–28 June 2018 in Porto (Portugal) David Šenkýř presented a paper entitled Patterns in Textual Requirements Specification (authors: David a prof. Kroha). During the presentation, the TEMOS (Textual Modelling System) was presented as a tool processes textual software system requirements with an ability to generate a UML class diagram and alerting the user about ambiguity and inconsistency in the
requirements.

DS Wizard @ ELIXIR All Hands 2018

ELIXIR-CZ logo

During the ELIXIR All Hands 2018 meeting, we (Robert & Marek) presented our progress on Data Stewardship Wizard in forms of a flash talk and a poster. The progress was quite significant, our team developed new portal solution purely with Haskell and Elm. It is  running and we got a lot of positive feedback: https://dsw.fairdata.solutions

ELIXIR-CZ Annual Meeting 2017

We participated in the ELIXIR-CZ Annual Conference 2017 in Třešť. We presented our work within the Interoperability platform, where we work on the international Data Stewardship Portal project and other projects such as ontology and UFO (A and B) application in the field of bone marrow donation. You can see our presentation below along with the photos from the event.

If you are interested in our ELIXIR-related work, take a loot at our offered thesis topics or contact us…

CCMi 2017

OntoUML.org portal has been launched

Today, 10 October 2017, precisely at 10:10 (UTC) is a key moment for OntoUML. Together with our foreign colleagues, we launched the long-awaited OntoUML.org community portal, which is not just full of useful information on Ontology of UFO and OntoUML (we teach at our faculty in subject BI-KOM, formerly BI-OMO), but it also allows to search and share opinions, experiences and projects. It represents a place where all the know-how associated with OntoUML will be concentrated, a place that has been missing for a long time. We hope it will significantly help broaden and develop language, as well as basic ontology, which development was started by Dr. Guizzardi in 2005.

We already have a lot of ideas and plans to develop and improve this portal, and we will be glad to welcome everyone who wants to work with us and join the community!

ESUG17 and IWST17

Once again we’ve taken part in the traditional Smalltalk conference ESUG (European Smalltalk User Group), this time in Maribor, Slovenia.

During the conference, two of our students presented their work related to modeling and Pharo on the IWST17 workshop.

Jan Blizničenko followed up on his Master thesis and presented Kendrick epidemiological modeling on top of our OpenPonk platform. (presentation, paper)

Peter Uhnák presented an approach generating instance models for running systems, and live visualization and debugging of object structures. (presentation, paper).

 

ELIXIR CZ Annual Conference 2017

The second ELIXIR CZ annual conference will be held on 15 and 16 November 2017 and we are preparing to participate actively – to present our work, which we are doing in ELIXIR platform in cooperation with foreign colleagues.
