PIS - Prof. Josef Kittler - Anomaly detection: A novel framework 
LECTURE ANNOTATION: Anomaly is an important notion in the operation of both biological and engineering systems. The concept refers to events or situations which deviate from normality (usual observation, order, form or rule) and in this sense are considered anomalous. Applications include intrusion detection in surveillance systems and communication networks, abnormality detection in medical diagnostics, novel class detection in pattern recognition, and out-of-vocabulary word detection in speech recognition, to mention just a few examples. Anomaly is a very generic term, having many nuances, which are impossible to discern using simply the classical mathematical concept of anomaly as an outlier of a probability distribution. A recently proposed anomaly detection system architecture is presented and discussed. It includes several distinct mechanisms to detect anomalous events and facilitates their characterisation. In addition to the conventional process of distribution-outlier detection, the mechanisms include classifier incongruence detection, data quality assessment, classifier confidence gauging, and model-drift detection. The outputs of these processes feed into a reasoning engine, which draws conclusions about the presence of anomaly and its nature. The advocated approach to anomaly detection is illustrated on a number of applications. LECTURER: Josef Kittler is professor of Machine Intelligence at the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing, University of Surrey. He received his BA, PhD and DSc degrees from the University of Cambridge. He teaches and conducts research in the subject area of Signal Processing and Machine Intelligence, with a focus on face biometrics, and anomaly detection. He published a Prentice Hall textbook on Pattern Recognition: A Statistical Approach and several edited volumes, as well as more than 700 scientific papers, including more than 180 journal papers. He serves on the Editorial Board of several scientific journals in Pattern Recognition and Computer Vision. He became Series Editor of Springer Lecture Notes on Computer Science in 2004. He served as President of the International Association for Pattern Recognition 1994-1996. He was elected Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2000 and received honorary doctorates from the Czech Technical University in Prague and from the University of Lappeenranta. In 2006 he was awarded the KS Fu Prize from the International Association for Pattern Recognition, for outstanding contributions to pattern recognition. In 2008 he was awarded the IET Faraday Medal and in 2009 he became EURASIP Fellow. ABOUT THE PRAGUE COMPUTER SCIENCE SEMINAR: The seminar will take place on the 4th Thursday of each month at 4:00pm (except June, July, August and December) alternately in the buildings of Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Czech Technical University, Karlovo nám. 13, Praha 2 and Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University, Malostranské nám. 25, Praha 1. Its program will consist of a one-hour lecture followed by a discussion. The lecture should be based on an (internationally) exceptional or remarkable achievement of the lecturer, presented in a way which is comprehensible and interesting to a broad computer science community. The lectures will be in English. The seminar framework was laid out by the preparatory committee consisting of Michal Chytil (Czech Academy of Sciences, Computer Science Institute), Pavel Kordík (Czech Tech. Univ., Faculty of Information Technologies), Jan Kybic (Czech Tech. Univ., Faculty of Electrical Engineering), Michal Pěchouček Czech Tech. Univ., Faculty of Electrical Engineering), Jiří Sgall (Charles University, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics), Vojtěch Svátek (University of Economics, Faculty of Informatics and Statistics), Michal Šorel (Czech Academy of Sciences,Institute of Information Theory and Automation), and Filip Železný (Czech Tech. Univ., Faculty of Electrical Engineering) The idea to organize this seminar emerged in discussions of the representatives of several research institutes on how to avoid the undesired fragmentation of the Czech computer science community.


6th International Conference on IT Convergence and Security (ICITCS 2016)

ICITCS 2016 seeks contributions presenting novel research results in all aspects of IT Convergence and Security. Focus of the conference is covering areas of Computer Vision and Applications, Future Network Technology, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, Web Technology, Software Engineering and related. As a part of this conference, we organize a special track Innovative Methods in Software Testing, dedicated to research in software testing, verification and quality assurance. Paper submission deadline is April 30th 2016.


Poster 2016 – 20th International Student Scientific Conference 
Student scientific conference Poster 2016 provides a forum for presentation of scientific work of both doctorate and master students in programmes related to electrical engineering and informatics. Its 20th edition is held on May 24, 2016. Other information available on


27th Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology (SPPT) 
The Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology (SPPT) has a long tradition and is usually held biennially. This will be the 27th Symposium. It was originally founded for the presentation of results of the Institute of Plasma Physics of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences (IPP CAS) in 1967. Since 1969 it has gradually become a Czechoslovak forum in this branch and many famous foreign scientists have made presentations. Since 1993 it has been held in co-operation with the Department of Physics, Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University (FEE CTU) in Prague. The symposium is of the European importance. There will be about 150-200 participants.
