Welcome to the Department of
Computer and Information Science
Amir Aminifar has got the Best Student Paper Award at the 21st IEEE Real-Time and Embedded Technology and Applications Symposium (RTAS), that has been held in Seattle, USA. RTAS is a major event, highly selective, and among the most prestigious in the area.
Some optimization problems are practically unsolvable; the algorithms we have at disposal have enormous running times. Other problems, however, can be solved efficiently. Why is it like this? What properties is it that make problems easy to solve, or conversely, difficult to solve? Questions of this type are studied by Hannes Uppman in a recent PhD thesis at IDA about the complexity of combinatorial optimization problems.
This year is the 40th anniversary of Computer science and engineering program (D) as the first such educational program in Sweden, and this was celebrated together with the IT programs 20th anniversary. The organised jubileum conference was enjoyed by many alumni och students with cake, mingle, and entertainment.
