Gastvortrag: Dr. Carmine Dodaro (University of Calabria)

Dienstag, 12. April 2016 12:54

(Der Vortrag wird live aus der TU-Graz übertragen)

Titel:         „Efficient Solving Techniques for Answer Set Programming“

Zeit:           Dienstag, 19. April 2016, 14:00-16:00 Uhr

Ort:            Raum E 1.42, Südtrakt, Ebene 1



Answer Set Programming (ASP) is a well-established declarative programming paradigm. The high expressivity of ASP, combined with the growing number of industrial applications, made the implementation of efficient ASP solvers a challenging and crucial research topic. Efficient ASP solvers are required to address several reasoning tasks that go beyond the mere computation of answer sets. Among them are cautious reasoning, for modeling query entailment, and optimum answer set computation, for supporting numerical optimization. This talk reports on the techniques employed by the most efficient ASP solvers, and details the algorithms and the design choices for addressing several reasoning tasks in ASP.

Vortrag: Radu Mateescu, INRIA, Grenoble

Mittwoch, 2. März 2016 12:01

(Der Vortrag wird live aus der TU-Graz übertragen)

Titel:         „On-the-Fly Verification for Extended Action-Based Temporal Logics“

Zeit:           Donnerstag, 3. März 2016, 11:00-12:30 Uhr

Ort:            Raum E 1.42, Südtrakt, Ebene 1



For analyzing the dynamic behaviour of concurrent value-passing systems, classical temporal logics must be extended with data-handling primitives. Since the early days of formal verification, many such extensions were proposed, both in the linear/branching time and the state/action based settings. We present here MCL (Model Checking Language), an extension of the alternation-free modal mu-calculus with data-handling features, generalized regular expressions over transition sequences, and fairness operators. MCL was designed to allow a versatile and succinct formulation of temporal properties interpreted on labeled transition systems (LTSs) containing data values. We illustrate the usage of MCL by means of classical examples of properties (safety, liveness, fairness). We also describe the implementation of MCL provided by the EVALUATOR 4.0 model checker of the CADP verification toolbox, which evaluates an MCL formula on-the-fly on an LTS and also produces full diagnostics (witnesses and counterexamples), i.e., subgraphs of the LTS illustrating the truth value of the formula. We discuss the expressiveness and evaluation complexity of MCL, and we outline directions of ongoing work.

IEEE Student Paper Contest

Mittwoch, 25. November 2015 12:50

Dear students,

The IEEE Student Branch is organizing a student paper contest.
Deadline is December 10 (hard). To participate, please send your paper (maximum 6 pages, two-column style) to

The contest is open to all students of this university, not only technical students. However, the paper topics need to be related to a technical content.

The best paper will be nominated for the IEEE Region 8 Student Paper Contest.

IEEE Region 8 Student Paper Contest is for IEEE R8 student members or graduate student members who have not yet started their PhD. Professors-mentors and other associates can not be SPC authors (but their names could be acknowledged in the FINAL versions of the papers). Each student author must be a member of an IEEE Student Branch at the time of the original submission of the paper to the Branch Contest, and a member (student or not) of the IEEE at the time of the R8 Oral Finals presentation. The work presented has to be completed before the student receives the engineering degree that entitles her/him to start preparing a doctoral thesis. The submission of the paper to the Region 8 SPC must be completed within 12 months after graduation. A doctoral thesis is not considered. Published work is excluded from the Contest.

Best wishes,

Klagenfurt meets Robots: EU Robotics Week at AAU Klagenfurt

Dienstag, 10. November 2015 18:58

The IEEE Student Branch organizes from 23 to 27 November, a networking event for all those who deal with robotics or look forward to do so.

Numerous research projects at the Alpen-Adria University, the Lakeside Science & Technology Park, in the Lakeside Labs GmbH and in the laboratories of Joanneum Research are dealing with robotics. IEEE Student Branch is now organizing a multi-day event, where different Robotics groups present their research and invite the audience to explore the fascinating development going on in their research labs. Part of the program also provides the computer science workshop at the Institute for Informatics Didactics, which is aimed at school pupils.

The workshop concludes on 27 November with a robotics competition: participants in 14 teams will build their own Lego robots and program them to solve the given task in the most efficient manner. The participants will be divided into the Junior League (under 18 years) and Senior League (over 18 years. The winners of the Junior League will eventually compete against the winners of the Senior League. The award ceremony will take place from 16:00 clock on Friday 27 of November.

If you would like to participate with your team in the Robotics Competition, please register here:

The maximum number of teams that can participate is 14 due to technical limitations. The registration is therefore on a first come, first served basis and all teams will be informed about further details via e-mail.

Please note that only the LEGO kits will be provided and each team should bring at least one laptop on their own!

Details of the program will follow shortly.

Current Directions in Behavioral Energy Economics

Ort: Z.1.09

Zeit: Freitag, 17.07.2015, 11:00 Uhr

Abstract: In recent years many times sustainability and renewable energy consumption have been set on the agenda. However, the pressing issue how to make people reduce their amount of energy consumed – or their switching  towards green alternatives – has received far less research attention. The academic discipline of behavioral economics has much to offer to this debate. In the presentation we will summarize prior research on the role of individual differences and various pricing and framing techniques that have proven to be helpful in making people switch to green energy. We will also address challenges and future directions in behavioral energy economics.

Guest Lecture: Current Directions in Behavioral Energy Economics
