Informatics Research Workshop

Workshop objectives

To contribue to theoretical and practical research and development of Informatics and its borderline science areas, using the results of operations research, artificial intelligence, computing and applied Mathematics.

In the workshop
• we would like to involve students in solving component problems,
• They would do the programming of simple algorithms related to the research project, and also take part in processing resource works, mainly in the form of Students Scientific Circle acitivities. In the short run we aim at solving the NP tasks of a scheduling problem by implementing different search algorithms and comparing their efficiency. The project would end with the preparation of a proposal.

Current plans
•    Preparation of the mathematical model of the problem, using available literature.  
•    Ant algorithm solution
•    Writing the corresponding program
•    Planned publication: DGC "Informatika" Journal 
•    Genetic algorithm solution
•    Writing the corresponding program


E-Learning Science Workshop

Workshop objectives
To contribute through research and development to the increased effectiveness of e-learning, while at the same time improve its methodology and quality. To summarize national and international experience in operating e-learning platforms and to enhance results achieved so far.

Research work

  • MOOCs: practice and accomplishment
  • E-learning tools and environments, student perceptions and learning experience
  • Assessment, validation and performance support in e-learning methods  
  • Innovation and e-learning models
  • Learning in virtual communities and networks
  • Collaborative learning in online environments
  • Accessing LCMS systems via mobile devices
  • E-learning and knowledge management
  • Methodology for electronic testing
  • Economic Issues of e-learning


Applied Informatics Workshop

Workshop objectives

To analyse, measure and solve different problems in informatics from an engineering point of view, with the emphasis on performance and reliability. During the exploring research we apply  the multidisciplinary results of different science branches from probability to psychology.

Current plans

If with classic bubble sort we end sorting at the end of iteration when there had been no exchange in the given iteration, we do not have a result from a mathematical point of view, since the sort time in the worst case still remains O(n2). However, from an engineering point of view, supposing a random input, we have significantly improved the average sort time, thus, the sorting performance. In the workshop we would like to involve students in the world of technical development, with offering them interesting tasks that need serious professional knowledge. We are dedicated to use opportunities created by open source softwares and simulators, and at the same time develop student skills and talents that are advantageous for independent work.

Research topics of the Applied Informatics Workshop:
•    Operating systems, scheduling 
•    Designing a data warehouse
•    Developing web applications
