The desired outcome of the seminar is greater awareness of what's going on in this area at Chalmers, and possibly identify new opportunities for collaboration.<br /><br />The seminar's date coincides with a visit to Chalmers by Bulgarian participants in the GATE project [1] and some of the GATE project's Advisory Board members.<br /><br />From 12:00 to 13:00 Graham Kemp will introduce the seminar, Sylvia Ilieva will introduce the GATE project, and there will be a series of presentations (about 5 minutes each) from Chalmers researchers. Participants who are interested are invited to stay on for further discussions from 13:00 to 14:00.<br /><br /><strong>Speakers:</strong><br />  - Graham Kemp (Area of Advance ICT profile area Big Data, Computer Science and Engineering)<br />  - Sylvia Ilieva (Sofia University)<br />  - Marina Papatriantafilou (Computer Science and Engineering)<br />  - Magnus Almgren (Computer Science and Engineering)<br />  - Vincenzo Gulisano (Computer Science and Engineering)<br />  - Anders Logg (Mathematical Sciences)<br />  - Monica Billger (Architecture and Civil Engineering)<br />  - Liane Thuvander (Architecture and Civil Engineering)<br />  - Jesper Knuttson (Architecture and Civil Engineering)<br />  - Devdatt Dubhashi (Computer Science and Engineering)<br /><br /><br />[1] Chalmers is participating in the project &quot;GATE - Big Data for Smart Society&quot;, which is funded by the Horizon 2020 WIDESPREAD-2016-2017 TEAMING Phase 1 programme. This project aims to establish a Big Data Centre of Excellence in Sofia as a partnership between Sofia University and Chalmers. The project partners are Sofia University (coordinating), Chalmers Industrial Technology, and Chalmers University of Technology. The main task in this 12-month &quot;Phase 1&quot; project (from September 2017 to August 2018) is to build a case for support for a &quot;Phase 2&quot; project. If the &quot;Phase 2&quot; application is successful there will be opportunities and funding to build partnerships in research with education with groups in Sofia from 2019. <a href=""></a><br /><br /></div> <div> </div></span></div> <span class="text-normal"><div><span><br /></span></div></span><div><span class="text-normal page-content"></span></div> seminar on Digitalisation Security & privacy | Machine Intelligence<p>RunAn, conference hall, Kårhuset, Campus Johanneberg</p><p>On 15 March 2018 at Chalmers conference centre, Runan.</p>​ <br />At the 2018 initiative seminar on Digitalisation we focus on the two themes Security/Privacy and Machine Intelligence. <a href="/en/areas-of-advance/ict/events/Digitalisation2018/Pages/default.aspx">More information on the seminar webpage &gt;</a> Mingle at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering<p>CSE Department lunchroom. (Follow directions to meeting room EDIT 8103)</p><p>​You are cordially invited to an afternoon of talks and mingle. We will discuss all important aspects of postgraduate life: from the start, to the perils and joys of the research itself. This will be of interest to all who consider applying for a PhD position in the future. Even if you have not thought about doing a PhD, you might find it interesting to learn what a PhD programme is all about.</p><br />This event is a great opportunity to learn about PhD studies first-hand from the people who run the PhD education at CSE, but also from enrolled PhD students. We will talk about applying for doctoral studies, the life of a doctoral student, and how supervisors support their students and help them to develop into independent researchers. You will also get a chance to mingle with students and researchers from the department. If you have any interest in doing research, you should not miss this opportunity. <hr /> <b><br />Schedule<br /></b> <ul> <li><strong>15:00 Welcome talk,</strong> <a href="/sv/personal/redigera/Sidor/agneta-nilsson.aspx">Agneta Nilsson</a><br /> Agneta is vice head of department, and as such responsible for all aspects of the PhD education. <br /><br /></li> <li><strong>15:10 How we nurture PhD students</strong>, Prof. <a href="/en/Staff/Pages/philippas-tsigas.aspx">Philippas Tsigas<br /><br /></a> </li> <li><strong>15:30 Being a PhD student at Computer Science and Engineering</strong>, <a href="/en/staff/Pages/grischa.aspx">Grischa Liebel</a><br /><br /></li> <li><strong>15:50 The supervisor's perspective</strong>, Prof. <a href="/en/staff/Pages/andrei.aspx">Andrei Sabelfeld<br /><br /></a> </li> <li><strong>16:10 Brief presentation of open PhD positions at the department. <br /><br /></strong></li> <li><strong>16:25 or so, Coffee and mingle.</strong></li></ul> <br />There will be also other researchers and PhD students, as well as study administrators to talk to and ask questions. <hr /> How to get to the CSE lunch room: enter the EDIT-building through the D&amp;IT main entrance on Rännvägen (not on Hörsalsvägen). Then go upstairs or take the lift to the 4th floor. Enter the corridor with the teachers' offices and walk until you see a door to the stair case on the right.
