The Lorentz Center hosted a week-long international workshop on Future Computing for Digital Infrastructures. More than 40 experts participated and discussed current and future challenges and potential solutions in computing, including the effects on computing by artificial intelligence, sustainability, and security.
The paper titled Enabling Collaborative Multi-Domain Applications: A Blockchain-Based Solution with Petri Net Workflow Modeling and Incentivization by Zhou, X., Cushing, R., Koning, R., Belloum, A., Grosso, P., Klous, S., van Engers, T.
The paper titled The dynamics of corruption under an optional external supervision service by Xin Zhou, Adam Belloum, Michael H. Lees, Tom van Engers, Cees de Laat has been published at Applied Mathematics and Computation.
Maximilian Barger, MSc Computer Security student at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, received the Best Short Paper Award at CompSys 2023 for his research project that was supervised by CCI members Marco Brohet and Francesco Regazzoni. Congratulations, Max!
Danny van den Berg, BSc Natural and Social Sciences student majoring in Artifical Intelligence, presented the work he carried out for this thesis under the supervision of Tom Slooff (USI) and CCI at IJCNN 2023. Congratulations, Danny!
The workshop Programming Languages in the Netherlands, supported by VERSEN, was a big success. A 12-presentation programme enticed plenty of discussion amoung the 50-60 participants. The CCI group contributed by organising the event (Thomas and Grace) and by giving two talks (Christopher on Seaso and Damian on language services).
Several CCI members have projects being funded for interdisciplinary research on the theme of Responsible Digital Transformation. Interesting aspect about these projects is that they involve (Co-)PIs from at least two faculties. Both projects involve Information Law.
The University of Amsterdam (UvA) is looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the area of programming languages, formal methods, and distributed systems. The goal of the research is to enable the integration and automatic enforcement of high-level contract specification within distributed systems for data exchange and federated data processing. Possible outcomes are: (domain-specific) software languages, system architecture designs, and prototypes for verifying contract specifications, language implementations, and auditing/monitoring components. The offered contract is for a minimum of 12 months. The closing date is the 25th of June. The ideal starting date the 1st of August.
The 22nd Smart Card Research and Advanced Application Conference (CARDIS 2023) will be hosted by CCI in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, on November 15-16, 2023, and is seeking original papers on the design, development, deployment, evaluation, penetration testing and application of smart cards and secure embedded systems.
