Basic information

DATESO workshop is a meeting of people interested in databases, text
processing, specifications, and objects. It is aimed at the
theoretical and technical bases of information technologies,
approved methods and development trends.

DATESO is also intended as a meeting of PhD students and their supervisors.
They can all discuss their new ideas, threads, and other subjects.

The workshop proceedings will be distributed at the workshop as a
collection of the accepted papers; they will also be made available
as proceedings and indexed by DBLP. ISI Web of Knowledge
currently indexes DATESO papers from 2005 to 2009. DATESO 2005 to 2014
is also available at Scopus.

This year’s DATESO is mainly focused on:
– Social networks
– Semantic web and linked data
– Open Data
– Data structures for similarity searching and indexing
– Searching and indexing XML data
– Big Data – its storage and processing
– NoSQL databases
– Search in multimedia and biological databases
– Clustering
– Data compression
– Formal specifications
– Agent-based modeling
– Model-driven development (MDD, MDA)
– Service-oriented architecture
– Information security, trust, privacy, safety-critical systems
– Bioinformatics
– Machine intelligence for Geographic Information Systems
– GPU data processing

CCM is now CCMI

During the reorganization of scientific and research groups at Faculty of Information Technology the group CCM has grown, especially by implementation group. Now we are Centre for Conceptual Modelling and Implementations. Details about new structure and also summary of current activities can be found in the presentation CCMI, which was voiced on the occasion of the inaugural meeting of the CCMI on October 7, 2015.

CCMI zasedání

Lecture of prof. Ray Dawson

CCM invites you to the lecture of prof. Ray Dawson: “Being Right is Not Good Enough – Why Knowledge Management Initiatives Fail”

Time: Thursday Aug 7 2014, 10:00
Place: A-951

Knowledge Management is of growing interest in business and industry today, and many organisations are looking to use knowledge management techniques. However, most knowledge management initiatives fail to measure up to expectations and many fail altogether. What is going wrong? Is this just a passing fad or can knowledge management be used to make worthwhile improvements to an organisation’s way of working?

In this lecture Professor Ray Dawson first examines what knowledge is and what makes the management of knowledge difficult. He concludes that organisations are right to want to embrace knowledge management, but being right is not good enough to ensure the success of any knowledge management initiative.

There are many examples of knowledge management systems that have floundered or failed and some that have been successful. Is it not possible, therefore, to use this knowledge to learn from these experiences to improve the success rate? Professor Dawson describes a number of case studies of knowledge management initiatives and from these he derives a 12 step plan for successful knowledge management implementation.

About the lecturer:
Ray Dawson is Professor of Knowledge Management at Loughborough University, UK. He obtained a bachelor’s and a masters degree from Nottingham University before entering industry with Plessey Telecommunications in 1977. At the company he developed an interest in software engineering processes and the working methods for information systems development as practiced in industry. Since 1987 he has continued this interest in industrial working methods at Loughborough University, working with companies to improve their software engineering processes and their information and knowledge management systems. A particular interest is Knowledge Management systems implantation as these systems seem to have a particularly poor success record and case studies in this area have revealed some interesting lessons for future system developments.

Unique lecture about Enterprise Engineering

We are delighted to invite you to a unique lecture by Steven van Kerveli from holland firm ForMetis, held Feb 17 within informatics evenings FIT. During the lecture you understand what the engineering approach in building businesses and that even in this area it is possible to build a proper formal foundations. You’ll see how to build information systems for EE. More about the lecture.

Cooperation with ForMetis is underway

CCM shares with ForMetis enthusiasm for innovation in Enterprise Engineering and IT technology based on the methodology DEMO. At present, we are running those joint projects:

  • Marek Skotnica – bachelor thesis focused on the implementation of the Action Model to DEMO Engine developed ForMetis.
  • Finalizing education-simulation portal (CCM participates in beta testing).
  • From next week we start a project focusing on the application DEMO in Governance, Risk & Compliance.

Ing. Zuzana Vejrážková diploma thesis was awarded in two competitions

Czech ACM Chapter & Slovakia ACM Chapter Student Project of the Year (ACM SPY) is a comptition for the best thesis in computer science and information technology. Susan received this prestigious award for his excellent work “Business Process Modeling and Simulation: DEMO, BORM and BPMN“, which contributed significantly to the topics which the CCM deals.

In addition to this award Zuzana succeeded well in the competition “ICT dissertation in 2013”, where her work placed on amazing 3rd place in tough competition.

Congratulations, thank you and wish you continued success!
