SIKS basic courses: "Interactive Systems" and "Mathematical Methods for IKS"



From September 25-28 2012, the School for Information and Knowledge Systems (SIKS) organizes two tutorials "Mathematical Methods for IKS" (25-26 Sept) and "Interactive Systems" (27-28 Sept). Both courses will be given in English and are part of the Tutorial Program for SIKS-PhD -students. Although these courses are primarily intended for SIKS-PhD-students, other participants are not excluded. However, their number of passes will be restricted and depends on the number of SIKS-PhD -students taking the course.


DATE: 25-28 September 2012

Prof.dr. P. De Bra (TUE), Interactive Systems
Prof.dr. V. Evers (UT), Interactive Systems
Prof. dr. T. Heskes (RUN), Mathematical Methods for IKS
Prof. dr. E.O. Postma (UvT), Mathematical Methods for IKS
Prof.dr. G. van der Veer (OU, UT), Interactive Systems

PROGRAM: The program is not available yet, but may include the following topics:

Mathematical Methods for IKS
  • Basic formalisms relevant to modern intelligent knowledge systems
  • Automatically acquired knowledge representations
  • Inductive learning
  • Bayesian statistics
  • Entropy and Information theory
  • Computer intensive techniques
  • Minimum Description Length Methods

Interactive Systems:
  • Human Computer Interaction
  • Man-Machine Interaction
  • Adaptive Hypermedia
  • Intelligent multimedia research
  • Web-based Information Systems


In the conference center there is a limited number of places and there is interest from other groups in the topic as well. Therefore, an early registration is required.

Deadline for registration for SIKS-Ph.D.-students: September 14 2012

After that date, applications to participate will be honoured in a first-come first-serve manner. Of course, applications to participate from other interested groups are welcome already. They will receive a notification whether they can participate as soon as possible.

For registration you are kindly requested to fill in the registration form

Arrangement 1 includes single room, all meals, and course material.
Arrangement 2 includes two lunches, one dinner and course material. So no stay in the hotel and no breakfast.
