The annual HIIT Retreat event will be held on May 22 - 23
toimintakeskus under the theme "HIIT Research Programmes 2006-2008 ".
As a step towards the joining of the present two units of
HIIT, the HIIT Board accepted on May 11, 2006, the titles and missions
of the four research programmes of HIIT: Algorithmic Data Analysis, Future
Internet, Network Society, and Probabilistic Adaptive Systems. The prime
objective of the retreat is to discuss and decide how the research programmes
will carry out their missions. Issues include the organisation and decision-making
procedures, transparency towards partner research groups and participating
companies, and the role of research programmes in education. Also the
possibilities of launching a fifth research programme will be discussed.
Senior researchers from HIIT and representatives from companies
and partner institutions are invited to the event.
