We would like to invite you and your colleagues who are interested in applying to Horizon Europe schemes to participate in the Info Day and Workshops which will take place at the Rectorate STU on March 15-16. The event is organized under the project FrontSeat and will be held by our partners from UNIPI. Registration is open till March, 13. Please register here.
On the 28th of February, in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of STU in Bratislava, the first "Academia Meets Industry" seminar took place. This seminar is a part of the project FrontSeat. "Academia Meets Industry" seminars are activities aimed to stimulate discussion between academia and industry managers and practitioners. We believe in the need for the industry to play an active role in this discussion to help to shape the academic research agenda that would reflect their pressing and emerging issues.

On Friday, February 24, 2023, PhD students Tereza Ábelová and Diana Dzurková defended their Dissertation Examination. Congratulations!
Tereza Ábelová defended her thesis on "Predictive Control of the Multipurpose Battery Energy Storage in the Microgrids" supervised by Prof. Michal Kvasnica.
Diana Dzurková defended her thesis on "Secure and Privacy-Preserving Process Control Based on Homomorphic Encryption" supervised by Prof. Miroslav Fikar, and the supervisor-specialist is Dr. Martin Kalúz.
We organized the first Consortium Meeting of the Project FrontSeat on February 17, 2023. The Plenary meeting was organized in a virtual format. In the morning session, the members of the project Consortium from STU, RUB, and UNIPI discussed the current status of the project, WPs, future plans, etc. As a part of the afternoon session, there was organized an online scientific session as a part of the seminar series on the “Research Seminar on Smart Cybernetics“. The scientific session was opened to a wide audience. In this session, two scientific lectures were delivered:
(i) Sebastian Leonow (RUB Bochum, Germany): Collaborative control under strict security requirements on lean embedded hardware,
(ii) Riccardo Bacci di Capaci, Marco Vaccari (UNIPI, Italy): Acid Gas Treatment in Waste-to-energy Plants: a case study of system identification and advanced control.
The final session of the Consortium Meeting was dedicated to the General Assembly meeting.
Annual meeting of IAM on February 9-10, 2023 in the Smolenice Castle.
