IEEEXtreme 24-Hour Programming Competition is a global challenge in which approximately 1500 teams of IEEE student members compete in a 24-hour time span against each other to solve a set of programming problems.
Anita Sobe from the SOMA team participated (together with Michael Grafl from ITEC and István Fehérvári from NES) and (preliminary) ranked #36. Photos of the competition!
Prof. Böszörmenyi was invited to give a keynote speech at the 8th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Video and Signal-Based Surveillance (AVSS 2011), hosted this year by the Pervasive Computing research group of the Institute of Networked and Embedded Systems at Klagenfurt University.
In his talk he describes a set of ideas and presents some first results of realizing the idea of the Vision of the Crowds. Beside general considerations, two particular applications will be introduced, in the area of medicine (in particular endoscopic videos) and traffic.

The 8th edition of AVSS takes place in Klagenfurt, Austria from August 30 to September 2, 2011.
AVSS is the prominent IEEE conference series on video and signal-based surveillance. AVSS provides a forum bringing together participants from the worlds of research, industry and government agencies sharing interest in various forms of surveillance. Starting in Genoa in 1998, it has continued to take place in exciting cities all over the world.
The Research Days are an annual event concentrating on the core competence of Lakeside Labs – Self-organizing Networked Systems. During this workshop organized by Lakeside Labs GmbH in cooperation with the University of Klagenfurt, international experts devote themselves to a special topic in self-organization.
We are very pleased to announce the visit of Prof. Klara Nahrstedt from Ralph and Catherine Fisher Professor Department of Computer Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She will meet with the various researchers at our University but will also give a talk with the following topic: “Mobile Networking Solutions for First Responders”. The colloquia will be held on July 11, 2011.
Her research interests are directed toward multimedia systems, quality of service (QoS) management in mobile networks, QoS routing, QoS-aware resource management, Quality of Protection (QoP) in multimedia systems, and real-time security in mission-critical systems.
On 26th and 27th April the ITEC Research Days 2011 took place. Many members of the Institute of Information Technology (including the members of the SOMA team) presented their current research topics. The following discussions resulted in intersting ideas for ongoing activities. The program can be found HERE.
