The EUC Colloquium on Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering was established in November 2011 and is organized by the Department of Computer Science of the European University Cyprus. The purpose of Colloquium is to provide a forum to our colleagues, our current and potentially future collaborators as well as known scientists to meet, present research findings, and discuss developments on a variety of topics spanning all important fields of Computer Science and Engineering. It also aims to provide an environment in which graduate students can gain experience in presenting their work, and benefit from contact with established researchers. The scope of the colloquium includes all aspects of Computer science, including Networks, Software Engineering, Databases, Algorithms, Theoretical Computer Science, Human Computer Interaction, High Performance Computing, and Operational Research, as well as aspects of Mathematics and Engineering.
If you are interested in giving at talk at the Colloquium, please contact the coordinator Dr. Vicky Papadopoulou by filling out the Colloquium Form.
|Speaker||Dr. Stelios Tsangarides|
|Title||Stellar ‘Genetics’: Sequencing Generations of Stars from Carbon to Uranium|
He attended Michigan State University (US) for a B.Sc. in Astrophysics, with a partial CASP scholarship (co-funded by the Cyprus government and the Fulbright Commission) and a number of scholarships from MSU. He graduated with a 4.0. and continued his studies with a Ph.D. in (Nuclear) Astrophysics at the Open University. He returned to Cyprus in July 2005, after a successful defence of his Thesis, titled ‘Abundances and Radial-Velocity Monitoring of Carbon-Enhanced, Metal-Poor Stars’, and has been a teacher in Physics at The G C School of Careers since his return. In 2009 he was promoted to Head of the Physics Department.

|Title||Diverse and Proportional Size-l Object Summaries for Keyword Search|
The abundance and ubiquity of big graphs (e.g., Online Social Networks such as Google+ and Facebook; bibliographic graphs such as DBLP) necessitates the effective and efficient search over them. Given a set of keywords that can identify a Data Subject (DS), a recently proposed relational keyword search paradigm produces, as a query result, a set of Object Summaries (OSs). An OS is a tree structure rooted at the DS node (i.e., a tuple containing the keywords) with surrounding nodes that summarize all data held on the graph about the DS. OS snippets, denoted as size-l OSs, have also been investigated.
|Speaker||Mr Kendeas Karantonis (Hellas-Sat)|
|Title||Geostationary Communication Satellites - A multimillion investment!|
There are thousands of artificial satellites orbiting our planet today. These human-made objects are used for a variety of purposes such as science missions, commercial and military applications. This presentation will talk about the geostationary communication satellites. It will present the satellite's main systems and the satellite's ground-control-center operations.
|Title||Teachers as designers of adaptive e-learning|
The cornerstone premise of this talk is that teachers are the primary change agents of an educational system. Another basic premise is that teachers adapt their lessons with or without the use of technology. Based on these premises, the presentation extends the notion of “teachers as designers” to “teachers as designers of adaptive e-learning”.
