News & Events


We cordially invite you to attend the conference ACM RACS 2015, co-organized by the Czech Technical University in Prague, Faculty of Electrical Engineering.

When: October 9 -12, 2015

Where: Campus of the Czech Technical University in Prague, Technická 2, Praha-Dejvice


Aim & Scope

RACS 2015 will provide an excellent forum for addressing research issues of concern within the adaptive and convergent computing area. Adaptive and convergent computing concentrates on innovative solutions to complex problems in all areas of industry and sciences using adaptive and convergent techniques in computer science and engineering. It involves programming, software engineering, graphics, databases, wireless networks, security, distributed systems, operating systems and so on.


Special tracks chaired by FEE:

The Software Testing track of ACM RACS 2015 is dedicated to research advances in software testing and verification, especially areas of test design process, formal methods, model based testing, test automation and software quality metrics.
The Software Engineering for Mobile Devices Track of ACM RACS 2015 is dedicated to research advances in areas of software engineering methods and development processes for mobile devices.

Keynote Speaker:
Vahid Tarokh, Harvard University, USA
Title: The Future of Cognitive Radio Networks
Abstract: I will discuss the current regulatory issues for opportunistic transmission, current activities, and the future networks based on these concepts. Then I will overview limits of cognitive transmission, and discuss that they may be hard to achieve in some scenarios. Finally, I will speculate (based on these facts) about the future of cognitive Radio networks.

Title:Projectional Editing and Its Implications - JetBrains MPS
Abstract: Let’s shake some of the dogmas that constrain our programming worldview. In this session, I would like to take you to an alternative world - a world where programming languages are not parsed, a world where languages can be downloaded from the Internet and plugged into your IDE just like frameworks. A world where you customize the languages that you use on your projects. You’ll see that projectional editing gives you incredible freedom in how you express your thoughts. It allows you to choose notations that best fit the task at hand. Your code can be edited as text, table, diagram, a form, or a combination of those. This is especially useful for Domain-specific languages and we’ll see real-life examples from domains such as the insurance industry, embedded software development, bioinformatics, enterprise systems and government regulations. We’ll also discuss the downsides and integration challenges that projectional editors face. My goal is that you’ll leave this session inspired, enriched and motivated to try something new.


Special Talk presenter : Radim Vansa, Vojtěch Juránek, RedHat
Title: Infinispan
Abstract: Infinispan is an extremely scalable, highly available key/value data store and data grid platform. It is 100% open source, and written in Java, although C++ and .NET clients are available, too. The purpose of Infinispan is to expose a data structure that is distributed, highly concurrent and designed ground-up to make the most of modern multi-processor and multi-core architectures. It is often used as a distributed cache, but also as a NoSQL key/value store or object database. This presentation should briefly introduce Infinispan and its integration with other frameworks such as Hibernate ORM or Apache Spark
