Seamless integration of teaching, research and applications An innovative, integrated approach forms the core framework of the teaching, research and practical applications of the Faculty.

Our study programmes evolve naturally from our research activities, so that students of all levels have opportunity to work directly on software development projects that have real-world impact for business, the public, and the international research community.
 
Our teaching offer comprises all three levels of studies: Bachelor, Master and PhD. Our jewels in the crown are our European Masters degrees, which foresee periods of study at partner universities and a double degree.

We are particualrly committed to research. An excellent infrastructure and an international and dynamic teaching body create the ideal environment for this and our research projects are internationally recognised and financed through national and European funds, with frequent contributions from local companies and public institutions.

Our strong focus on research does not make us neglect real-world applications. Our Faculty works in close collaboration with local entities, organises common endeavours and addresses actual demands of enterprises, local government and schools.

A Kid Krypto System based on DIRECTED CYCLE COVER - A KRDB SeminarExternal eventsThe Computer Science Unplugged activities and project has been an influential STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) initiative, importantly supported by Google. Many of its activities are suitable for very young children. One of the most popular Unplugged activities is Kid Krypto, invented by Mike Fellows and Neal Koblitz. Kid Krypto demonstrates the mathematics underlying public-key cryptography without using advanced mathematics.  This talk discusses Kid Krypto and also gives a second example of a Kid Krypto-style encryption system, this one based on vertex disjoint and edge disjoint directed cycle cover. It has been developed together with Mike Fellows and may be accessible to an even younger audience.  The talk also mentions the Creative Mathematical Sciences Communication conference which encourages research scientists to participate in mathematical sciences outreach.Room BZ P1.02, Dominikanerplatz 3 - Piazza Domenicani, 3, 39100 Bozen-BolzanoFrances Rosamond, Department of Informatics, University of Bergen, Norwa

What Makes People Use a Mobile Application for Tourism? - An IDSE seminarExternal eventsWhat Makes People Use a Mobile Application for Tourism? The Predictive and Moderating Role of Individual Differences in Reward and Punishment Sensitivities  In this presentation, the results will be presented from an experimental study into proactive delivery of recommendations. Much knowledge exists on people’s willingness to use proactive recommendations when relevant versus their reluctance to do so when poorly timed, overly intrusive, or seemingly causing overdependence. This suggests that their impact not only depends on contextual factors (such as relevance of the recommendation), but also on general user differences in sensitivity to reward or punishment. We specifically predicted that users with high reward sensitivity would be more inclined to use proactive recommendations than those with high punishment sensitivity. We tested this in an online experiment among graduate students who downloaded and interacted with a mobile tourism application, and were able to show that users indeed appreciated proactive recommendations whenever they were relevant. The impact of differences in reward and punishment sensitivity on use and appreciation of the mobile application will be addressed.  Room BZ P1.02, Dominikanerplatz 3 - Piazza Domenicani, 3, 39100 Bozen-BolzanoLaurens Rook, Technology, Policy and Management Faculty of Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands

3rd Interdisciplinary School on Applied OntologyExternal eventsThe International Association for Ontology and its Applications (IAOA) is happy to announce ISAO 2016 — Third Interdisciplinary School on Applied Ontology, which will take place in Bozen-Bolzano, Italy between June 27 and July 1, 2016 (the week before FOIS 2016 held in Annecy, France between July 6th-9th, 2016).   World-class experts in different disciplines (Philosophy, Knowledge Representation, Logics, Conceptual Modeling and Ontology Engineering) will meet for a week with students, researchers and practitioners and present courses in complementary aspects of Applied Ontology. The summer school will be a full immersion experience in ontology during which the experts will engage in open discussions with each other as well as interact with the participants.
