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.

Formetis 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 ourDynaCASE project and we discussed the synergies with the DEMO Engine.
We also had a very nice social event with great Belgium beer! :-). Thank you, Formetis, for your kind support and hospitality!
