Dare to Do Mighty Things: Journey to Mars, Nagin Cox, 04.04.2016.

We are happy to announce that our distinguished guest from NASA/JPL Institute, Nagin Cox, is going to give a lecture: ”Dare to Do Mighty Things: Journey to Mars”.

Since the beginning of time, people have been entranced by the night sky and by our nearest planetary neighbor - Mars. Come hear the stories of NASA’s “Journey to Mars” from the early rovers to our newest rover on Mars - the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover. Curiosity landed on Mars spectacularly in August 2012 and has made astounding discoveries already. Robotic exploration is the first step in the longer term vision of international exploration of Mars by humans. Our exploration of Mars symbolizes all that humankind can do when we work together as a team.

Date and time: Monday, 4th April 2016. 15:00 h Place: RGF, room #733, IV floor, Studentski trg 16

Third ICT Security CONFERENCE, May 19 - 20, 2016

Cybercriminals are becoming more sophisticated and collaborative with every coming year. According to the latest research, companies will spend at least 50% of the IT budget for the improvement of the corporate network security and malware protection systems. Adequate backup solution is necessary for full data protection, too.

The sophisticated IT security system is very important for known and new concepts like cloud, MDM (Mobile Device Management), IoT (Internet of Things), BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) etc.

Seminar on Computer Science and Applied Mathematics, 23.02.2016.

Next meeting: Tuesday, 23rd February 2016.

Place: 301f Mathematical Institute of SASA

Time: 14:15h

Lecturer: Ilija Antović, Faculty of Organisational Sciences


Abstract: The design and implementation of user interfaces are two of the most effort and time consuming activities of the software development process. The lecture will address the automation of the process of designing and implementing user interfaces. The automation is based on the identified connections between software requirements, particularly use cases, and the resulting user interface of the application, taking into account the characteristics of the targeted implementation technologies and application types. We will also discuss the principles and characteristics which should be an integral part of the tool for automation of user interfaces development, that are all implemented in SilabUI approach.

Keywords: user interface, requirements engineering, use case, code generator, meta-model, user interface template, business applications, user interface generator
