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 jewel 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.

DMRS - International Workshop on Decision Making and Recommender SystemsExternal events Workshop Scope While most research in recommender systems is conducted in recommendation techniques, which boils down to rating prediction algorithms, there is still too little discussion on the impact of the supported user interaction and its effect on the decision making behaviors that are enabled and supported. User interactions and decision-making are however critical in recommender system research. Hence it is important to design the interaction while understanding its impact on the user decision-making behavior and heuristic in order to support an effective process. Therefore with this workshop we aim to go beyond recommendation techniques and algorithm evaluations and further merit the research attention from both recommender systems and human factor. Workshop Objectives This workshop aims to bring researchers and practitioners together from user interaction, decision-making and recommender system research communities, especially focusing on integrating research interests across different communities. Also, we aim to provide a platform for discussing approaches, models, research results and case studies addressing a broad range of issues related to recommender system and user interaction. We are specifically interested in discussing the interdisciplinary research challenges and emerging research directions. Room 002 , Dominikanerplatz 3 - Piazza Domenicani, 3, 39100 Bozen-Bolzano

A DRAMA LÄB Workshop - Co-Design and Children: Who, Why, HowExternal events«Up to age 16, kids are determining most expenditures in the household. This is very attractive to marketers». But how to design for nowadays children? Bring them into the design life-cycle! «Children are natural for co-designing. In the right context with the right tools, kids have no problem unleashing their wildest ideas and dreams to create previously unimagined product concepts». For Drama Läb, Franca Garzotto will deliver an overview talk on co-design and children. The talk by Franca will be inclusive also in the sense that all are welcome—students as well as researchers, experts of design and art, computer science as well as education.Room 002 , Dominikanerplatz 3 - Piazza Domenicani, 3, 39100 Bozen-BolzanoFranca Garzotto, Politecnico di Milano

Scientific Lenses over Linked Data: An Approach to Support Multiple Integrated Views - A KRDB SeminarExternal eventsWhen are two entries about a concept in different datasets the same? If they have the same name, properties, or some other criteria? The choice depends upon the application to which the data will be put. However, existing Linked Data approaches provide a single global view over the data with no way of varying the notion of equivalence to be applied.   In this presentation, prof. Alasdair Gray will introduce Scientific Lenses, an approach that enables applications to vary the equivalence conditions between linked datasets. They have been deployed in the Open PHACTS Discovery Platform – a large-scale data integration platform for drug discovery. To cater for different use cases, the platform allows the application of different lenses which vary the equivalence rules to be applied based on the context and interpretation of the links.
