- Competition for PhD students and graduates
- CESNET launched a contest for young PhD graduates and students in which the participants will present the case studies of innovative use of the current CESNET e-infrastructure services or propose new services and their uses for science, research, and education. The first three winners will gain a financial award: 100.000 CZK (approx 4000 EUR) for first place, 50.000 CZK for second place, and 30.000 CZK for third place. Our goal is to support young researchers and students and propagate usage of modern IT services in this community.

- 2014 PEGASUS-AIAA Student Conference
- A main purpose of the conference is to provide a forum for PEGASUS students to present technical papers in public competition and to give the students an opportunity to practice the presentation of technical work at meetings. Further important aim of the conference is to support a close relation among PEGASUS universities (see www.pegasus-europe.org), AIAA, and European industry related to aeronautics and space engineering.
The conference will also provide the floor to present and introduce the company's products, ideas, and activities to students and academic staff coming from 25 technical and aerospace oriented PEGASUS Network universities from 10 EU countries as well as to discuss a potential cooperation.
The conference is held under auspices of His Magnificence, prof. Petr Konvalinka, the Rector of the CTU.

- Prague Computer Science Seminar - The Life with Constraints - Prof. Roman Barták
- LECTURE ANNOTATION
Constraint Programming (CP) is a technology for declarative modeling and solving of combinatorial optimization problems. Despite (wrong) belief in some research communities, CP is not equivalent to simple enumeration. The real power behind CP is in the integration of search and inference realized via various consistency techniques. This integration gives CP a unique capability to exploit both user-defined heuristics as well as general powerful search-pruning techniques.
The presentation will introduce constraint satisfaction terminology and technology using a popular well-known puzzle. Then it will focus on so called global constraints that represent a “backdoor” for adding specific efficient solving techniques into general constraint solvers. The presented ideas will be motivated by real-life examples originated mainly from planning and scheduling problems.
Prof. RNDr. Roman Barták, Ph.D.
Roman Barták works as a full professor at Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, where he leads the Constraint Satisfaction and Optimisation Research Group.
In 1999-2004 he led research activities of a multinational company Visopt BV, where he was the main architect of the scheduling engine developed by this company. His work focuses on techniques of constraint satisfaction and their application to planning, scheduling, and other areas. Since 1998 he has been teaching a course on Constraint Programming at Charles University, he gave several tutorials on constraint processing at international conferences (IJCAI, AAAI, ICAPS, CI, SAC) and summer schools (ESSLLI, NASSLLI) and he is an author of the On-line Guide to Constraint Programming (#2 source for Constraint Programming according to Google) and On-line Guide to Logic Programming (#2 source for Logic Programming according to Google).
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.
- Film Club - The Best Offer
- In the world of high-end art auctions and antiques, Virgil Oldman is an elderly and esteemed but eccentric genius art-expert, known and appreciated by the world. Oldman is hired by a solitary young heiress, Claire Ibbetson, to auction off the large collection of art and antiques left to her by her parents. For some reason, Claire always refuses to be seen in person. Robert aids Oldman in restoring and reassembling some odd mechanical parts he finds amongst Claire's belongings, while also giving him advice on how to befriend her and deal with his feelings towards her. Also a friend of Oldman, Billy Whistler helps him to acquire a secret private collection of master paintings.

- 26th 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 26th 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.
