IX Summer School "Achievements and Applications of Contemporary Informatics, Mathematics and Physics" (AACIMP - 2014)

August 3-16, 2014, Kyiv (Ukraine), website: http://summerschool.ssa.org.ua

.

We are glad to announce the opening of the registration for the Ninth Summer School “Achievements and Applications of Contemporary Informatics, Mathematics and Physics” (AACIMP-2014). This year four streams are being launched: Operational Research, Applied Computer Science, Neuroscience and Energy.

To participate in the Summer School, it is necessary to fill in the application form on the AACIMP-2014 website (summerschool.ssa.org.ua). The decision on the acceptance is made by the Organizing Committee and is based on the applicant’s skills, his\her range of interests and motivation.

DAAD scholarships for students that are currently studying in Germany (covering all costs) are offered. More information about scholarships can be found on the DAAD Go East program website http://goeast.daad.de/.

You can find all the details of registration, information about courses, terms of participation, scholarships and payment at the AACIMP-2014 website: http://summerschool.ssa.org.ua. 

Educational program. The courses are presented in the form of lectures, seminars, workshops,
discussions according to the topics of four areas (streams):

  • Applied Computer Science. This year stream will first cover data retrieval and storage techniques as a part of data manipulation, then will cover basic methods of statistical analysis, data mining and machine learning. Lectures will be given on data visualization and tools for data analysis. This program will also investigate various real-world applications of these techniques, including image processing, bioinformatics, social science, and natural language processing. As this stream focuses on ”learning by doing” principle, a number of training exercises applying theoretical knowledge are planned.
  • Neuroscience. The neuroscience stream will provide insight into a broad range of topics, including dynamical principles of visual and auditory systems, rhythm generation, neuromechanics of movement control, neuron-computer interface in dynamic-clamp experiments, and brain computer interfaces. We will use practical examples of applications of modeling and biosignal analysis for functional assessment of movement control mechanisms and sensory system dynamics. This program aims to provide participants with an essential review of the contemporary computational neuroscience field and to give a practical introduction to the principles of analysis and simulation packages.
  • Energy. The energy program returns this year, covering on low-energy housing, focusing on new approaches and solutions to enhancing energy efficiency of buildings. This program will give a broad overview of existing challenges, followed by a discussion of widespread and emerging approaches to low energy building. The introductory lectures will be followed by the study of specific technologies, such as “smart buildings”, “smart grids” and their components; the efficient usage of solar energy; natural ventilation and integrated energy efficiency equipment; daylight systems, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning; new materials and construction methods; and advanced simulation tools.
