Informatics Colloquium 6. 12. Systems Theories contributes to Service Science (2016-12-06)
Informatics Colloquium 6. 12. 2016, 14:00 lecture hall D2 prof. Francesco Polese, University of Salerno Systems Theories contributes to Service Science Abstract: Service Science is a multicultural scientific domain addressing service systems, their desing, functioning, performance looking for the conditions and enablers of value co-creation in service exchanges. Service Systems are the focus of this research mainstream, indeed related to many other scientific domains such as that of big data analytics, management, engineering, legal sciences, marketing, human behavior, systems thinking. This latter, and in particular the Viable Systems Approach (VSA), supports the understanding of complex phenomena and with its theoretical suggestions, its postulates and fundamental concepts can be very useful to better understand service exchanges. A deepening of the VSA is hence most welcome in order to better manage decision making involving service systems, complex adaptive systems, complex service systems, smart service systems, smart cities and communities, and all topics interested by smarter planet initiative and by the service science community.

Informatics Colloquium 13. 12. Limits of Discrete Structures - An Algorithmic Perspective (2016-12-13)
Informatics Colloquium 13. 12. 2016, 14:00 lecture hall D2 prof. RNDr. Jaroslav Nešetřil, DrSc., MFF UK LIMITS OF DISCRETE STRUCTURES - AN ALGORITHMIC PERSPECTIVE Abstract: It is an old dream of mathematicians to replace the cumbersome investigation of particular cases by certain limit behaviour which would reflect the finite properties and hopefully would be simpler to handle. In the lecture we survey a particular recent activity which is both analytic and model theoretic and leads to a surprising connection to new techniques in clustering and modeling of sparsity.
