  • On Proof-Labeling Schemes versus Silent Self-Stabilizing Algorithms

    Prof. Pierre Fraigniaud, CNRS and Universite Paris Diderot, France


    Self-stabilizing algorithms are distributed algorithms supporting transient failures. Starting from any configuration, they allow the system to eventually reach a legal configuration. In the context of network computing, we will show that, for every task, there is a self-stabilizing algorithm solving that task, with optimal space-complexity...

    Guest lecture
    Exactum C222

    Dr. Marcin Piątkowski (Nicolaus Copernicus University, Toruń, Poland) will give a guest lecture on "Repetitions in words over partially commutative alphabets" on Tuesday, October 21 at 13:15-14 in Exactum room C222.

    Problems related to repetitions are significant due to many practical applications. On the other hand, in some cases it is important to consider words avoiding regularities and repetitions....

  • Could computers design great user interfaces?

    Prof. Antti Oulasvirta, Aalto University


    In this keynote, I discuss the possibility of using computational methods to design user interfaces automatically. Algorithms play an essential role in the design of many man-made artefacts, so why not in the design of user interfaces? Computational methods are generally useful in well-defined problems in engineering optimization. They are particularly useful when the search space grows...

    Title: Euclidean TSP with few inner points in linear space

    Abstract: Given a set of n points in the Euclidean plane, such that just k
    points are strictly inside the convex hull of the whole set, we want
    to find the shortest tour visiting every point. The fastest known
    algorithm for the version with few inner points, i.e., small k, works
    in O(k^O(k^0.5) k^1.5 n^3) time [Knauer and...

    Guest lecture

    Huayu Wu, PhD (Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore) will give a guest lecture titled "Managing and Analyzing Transportation Data" on Friday, October 10 at 12:15 in Exactum CK111. Welcome!



    More and more public (e.g., subway and bus) and private (e.g., taxi) transport data are being released to research institutions for urban analytics. By studying those transportation...
