Partnership with TALQ

Department of Applied Computer Science has partnered with TALQ.

The TALQ Consortium aims to set a globally accepted standard for management software interfaces to control and monitor heterogeneous outdoor lighting networks.

TALQ generates answers to the main challenges of outdoor lighting as reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions worldwide, increasing cost efficiency and accelerating the introduction of LED luminaires in road and urban lighting.

Samsung AppCup Winners

Oskar Kuligowski and Ziemowit Rachwał, members of the SHADER Reseach Club at the Department of Applied Computer Science, are the winners of this year's Samsung AppCup.

The awarded application is called 'Bring Them Water', and belongs to the category of puzzle video games.

The app is available for the Samsung Galaxy S3.

Sabre Academy

We would like to invite you to the next meeting in the Sabre Academy series.

The program:

  • 10.05.2013, 12:30 - 14:00, Java refactoring and design patterns,
  • 20.05.2013, 11:00 - 12:30, What's new in C++.

Location: Build. B-1, Room H24.

Research topics

The research conducted by scientists affiliated with the Department includes:

  • computer science applied to power engineering – developing intelligent energy infrastructures (the so-called smart grid), to design and optimize intelligent lighting; the Department has unique experience and knowledge in this field,
  • artificial intelligence (AI) – knowledge engineering (KE), decision support systems, didactics, computer linguistics,
  • software engineering – theoretical aspects such as software quality (for example implementation of formal methods in the process of software design) as well as practical aspects concerning software architectures (like, for instance, SOA),
  • embedded and mobile systems – microcontrollers, single-chip computers as well as modern operating systems such as Android and iOS,
  • processing of large datasets – cloud computing, big data, data warehouses,
  • computer graphics – the Department is equipped with a new 3D computer graphics lab,
  • project management – agile software developement and classical methodologies, as well as research regarding their integration.

The Department of Applied Computer Science closely cooperates with governmental organisations and public administration (among others - the Marshal's Office of the Malopolska Voivodship, the Energy Regulatory Office) as well as with the industry (among others - GE, ABB, Schreder, Philips and Fideltronik). One of the most important projects ran by the Department is Green AGH Campus. It is a Smart City Project, conducted together with the Marshal's Office of the Malopolska Voivodship and GE. The Department of Applied Computer Science coordinates the implementation of pilot Smart Grid solutions (including intelligent lighting systems). One of the aims of the project is to create an integrated laboratory for energy systems, in order to allow monitoring of the efficiency of diverse renewable energy sources in the Malopolska Voivodeship.
