Our colleague doc. Ing. MSc. Martin Klaučo, PhD. was nominated among the 5 ESET Science Award 2023 finalists in the category Outstanding Personality of Science under the age of 35. Laureates of the ESET Science Award are selected on the basis of a demanding evaluation process that takes into account the entire complex of criteria, such as the contribution of their scientific and research work to society, scientific performance, measurable scientometric data, participation in the solution of important international research projects, or the visibility of Slovak science and research abroad. The award ceremony will take place on October 12 at 8:10 p.m. viewers can watch it live on RTVS. Congratulations!
The annual meeting of IAM was held in Valtice, Czech Republic on September 4-6.
On September 6, the high school students attending the 13th Summer University at STU visited IAM, where they learned more about industrial process control, automation, and the development of our smart greenhouse.
On September 7, the IAM students presented the interesting results of their summer internships in industry. The following IAM students presented their results: Martin Bíreš, Richard Fodor, Lukáš Lukča, Oliver Mészáros, Matej Ružička, and Martina Tomaškovičová.
We are coauthors of a new paper in the prestigious international scientific journal Computers & Chemical Engineering:
The paper presents the design of inferential sensors, incorporating multiple linear models. The state-of-the-art methodology is enhanced to ensure continuous model switching and optimize the labeling of training data. This contribution is a result of our industrial cooperation with the refinery Slovnaft, a.s. in Bratislava, Slovakia. The publisher Elsevier provides open access to new research articles for 50 days to help share the current results.
The full paper contributions presented at the 24th International Conference on Process Control are already available at the IEEE Xplore.
On Friday, August 18, 2023, PhD students Michaela Horváthová and Martin Mojto defended their dissertation theses. Congratulations!
Dr. Michaela Horváthová defended her PhD thesis on "Energy-Efficient Advanced Robust Control Design" supervised by Assoc. Prof. Juraj Oravec.
Dr. Martin Mojto defended his PhD thesis on "Data-driven Design of Linear Soft Sensors" supervised by Assoc. Prof. Radoslav Paulen.
We are proudly announcing that Prof. Miroslav Fikar and Assoc. Prof. Martin Klaučo have successfully applied to organize the 14th IFAC Symposium on Dynamics and Control of Process Systems, including Biosystems (DYCOPS) 2025 in Bratislava, Slovakia. The other candidate countries were Spain (Barcelona) and the Republic of South Africa (Stellenbosch).
