Demystifying blockchain technology in business
On Tuesday, November 28, 2023, a demytifing seminar on Artificial intelligence in public addministration will be held from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. The development of information technologies has led to an era in which we create, share and exchange increasing amounts of data. As the range of available data exceeds the capabilities of conventional, established computer systems to analyse them effectively, artificial intelligence and machine learning has become key to coping with this task. This, in turn, brings new challenges and requirements, such as accuracy and reliability, complexity of data acquisition, transparency of predictive models, credibility of validation, protection of privacy and ethical issues. Starting from two decades of practical experience in the use of artificial intelligence in various fields, the seminar will present what artificial intelligence is, and demonstrate through various examples some possibilities for its effective use. In doing so, we will point out some pitfalls that are too quickly caught by underexperienced developers who, under the influence of often excessive expectations and unrealistic demands of the environment, see artificial intelligence methods as a new “magical” technology. The seminar will be held by prof. dr. Vili Podgorelec, Head of the Laboratory for Intelligent Systems at the Faculty […]
Demystifying Artificial Intelligence in Public Administration
Invitation to the event organized by the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, and Innovation, SPIRIT Slovenia, and the Business Development Agency in collaboration with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, and Informatics (University of Maribor). The event is organized for researchers, experts in digital technology, and the interested public. Attendees will gain insights into key calls for the digital sector (Cluster 4- Digital) in 2024. Additionally, opportunities within the European Innovation Council (EIC) program will be presented. Representatives of national contact points (NCP) will introduce possibilities for applications in 2024, funding for Research and Innovation (R&I) from the European Innovation Council, and assistance from the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN). Successful applicants will share their experiences in a panel discussion, addressing questions from participants. The event, supported by EU funds under the Recovery and Resilience Plan and NextGenerationEU, provides an excellent opportunity for networking and generating new project ideas.

MultiXscale, in collaboration with CASTIEL 2 WP3 presents an event aimed at the Center of Excellence, the National Competence Center, their network and the end user. The event will take place online on December 5, 2023, from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m CET. Have you ever wished that all the scientific software you use was available on all the resources you had access to without having to go through the pain of getting them installed the way you want/need? The European Environment for Scientific Software Installations (EESSI – pronounced “easy”) is a common stack of architecture-optimised scientific software installations for HPC systems and beyond, including laptops, personal workstations, and cloud infrastructure. At the training you will learn what EESSI is, how it is designed, how to gain access to it and how to use it. A number of presentations will be shown, and access to a resource where you can try EESSI yourself will be given. Please register in advance by 1 December, EoB.

Streaming optimised scientific software: an introduction to EESSI
On Monday, 4 December 2023 (13:30-17:00 CET) online introductory tutorial on CernVM-FS will be held via Zoom. Tutorial was developed in collaboration with with the CernVM-FS development team. CernVM-FS, the CernVM File System (also known as CVMFS), is a file distribution service that is particularly well suited to distribute software installations across a large number of systems world-wide in an efficient way. The focus of this tutorial is on explaining what CernVM-FS is, how to access existing CernVM-FS repositories (like EESSI), and covering some aspects specific to using CernVM-FS on HPC systems. It is intended for people with a background in HPC (system administrators, support team members, end users, etc.) who are new to CernVM-FS: no specific prior knowledge or experience with it is required. If you would like to attend this tutorial, please register via https://event.ugent.be/registration/event/84b45c41-b98b-4a41-9aae-60f5f9e89440

On Wednesday, November 29, 2023, a demytifing seminar on cyber security technologies will be held from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. The development of information technologies and the Internet means an ever-increasing amount of data and digital services, which brings the challenges of cyber security. Ensuring cyber security includes both technical and non-technical aspects. As part of the seminar, we will focus on the concepts and technologies of cyber security, which are often misunderstood or not known at all. Various aspects of cyber security will be presented as part of the seminar. The basics of cryptography will be presented, with which we want to dispel the mystery surrounding the technologies that are the basis of many security mechanisms. The use of cryptography is also related to digital certificates and public key infrastructure. We will explain concepts such as electronic signature, digital certificate, SIGEN-CA, eOsebna, etc. and possibilities of use in practice. An important aspect of the protection of information systems is also the protection of the communication connection, for which we can use technologies such as HTTPS and VPN, where we will address misconceptions related to the mentioned concepts. By introducing new possibilities for using biometrics, FIDO 2 or PassKey […]
