3rd Annual CCMi Meeting

On Monday, 7. 11. 2016, we met once again at the 3rd Annual Meeting of the Centre for Conceptual Modelling and Implementation. During the formal part of the meeting participant presented themselves, their activity in the previous academic year and plans for the current one. Then we discussed about various topics in the field of conceptual modeling, software engineering, cooperation, research and teaching.

Invitation to ESUG 2016

We warmly invite you to this year’s conference of the European Smalltalk Users’ Group, which this year we host directly at the CTU in Prague. The event will take place soon, namely August 22nd to 26th, so do not hesitate to registrate. It is also a great opportunity for students, you can register as volunteers with the comment “local student volunteer.”

For more information about the event (including registration) visit the ESUG website.

We look forward to seeing you at ESUG’16!

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.

CTU has become a member of ELIXIR-CZ

ELIXIR-CZ logo

Infrastructure ELIXIR (European Life-Science Infrastructure for Biological Information) was founded for the purpose of creating and linking distributed research infrastructure for storage, processing and analysis of life sciences data. It responds to the growing needs of the research community which generates a large and exponentially growing amount of data needing to be stored efficiently, to extract key information and access them. Czech Republic became one of the first members of the consortium and is currently involved in a number of activities within the consortium.

Bioinformatics at CTU has its firm position especially in the form Faculty of Biomedical Engineering and activities at other faculties. On FIT is a research about searching compression of DNA sequences using the dictionary methods and approximate searching patterns in genomes (research group Prague Stringology Club). Most recently, Center for conceptual modeling and implementation get involved in those activities and launched cooperation within ELIXIR-CZ to increase interoperability of bioinformatics data – effort, which is very topical for example in The Netherlands, Slovenia and other countries of ELIXIR infrastructure. The advance in this area is primarily in applying ontological methods in combination with software tools.

ELIXIR-CZ awaits in 2016 great development of investigated topics as well as the infrastructure (technology, cooperation, projects, financing). Involvement of CTU and FIT brings significant opportunities for our researchers and students.
