More information



Program description:
The training and research programme of the Doctoral School of Information Science is open to a wide field of information science and of its technical applications. Its topics flexibly cover the constantly changing training and research demands. The research in its scientific workshops is of international level. The research is controlled by internationally recognized and highly appreciated professors.
The main research directions of the Doctoral School are:
(1) Image and signal processing, including image recognition, presentation and processing, new efficient methods in image retrieval, in object recognition in video analysis and advanced signal processing methods using sensor networks.
(2) Medical informatics systems: diagnostics and modelling studies of brain and cardiovascular systems, analysis and synthesis of food input regarding many components, development of intelligent informatics systems containing remote diagnostics and therapical units.
(3) System and control theory: intelligent diagnosis of complex systems, state and parameter estimation of nonlinear and stochastic systems, advanced control methods for energy systems, system and control theory approach of smart grids.
(4) Optimization of large-scale industrial systems and processes: developing methods and softwares for the analysis of complex processes and systems, for their design, optimization and decision support.
(5) Deterministic and stochastic dynamical system models: developing new theoretical and numerical methods motivated primarily by mathematical models describing biological processes and neural networks, their applications to practical problems.
(6) Applications of combinatorics in information technology: structural and extremal study of discrete mathematical models, mainly graphs and hipergraphs, study of the algorithmical complexity of combinatorical problems, study of approximability of discrete optimization, study of the competitive ratio of on-line scheduling.
