Az IMEKO tagjai 25 különböző részterület konferenciáin mutatják be tudományos eredményeiket, évről évre. A részterületek (TC-k, Technical Committee-k) maguk döntik el, hogy mikor és hol rendezik meg éves konferenciájukat, kivéve a háromévente megrendezett világkonferenciát.
International Measurement Confederation (IMEKO): an international, scientific organisation covering the complete range of measurement, it has 41 country members from all over the world, additionally, it has many personal members, 32 leaders in person and over 50 participated online on the actual meeting, representing more than 40 countries.
The Hungarian Machine Learning Meeting (Magyar Machine Learning Találkozó) provided an opportunity for Hungarian machine learning researchers working in foreign institutions to meet each other and the younger generation of Hungarian machine learning researchers and Ph.D. students. During the 3-day informal summer meeting, 17 internationally renowned researchers gave presentations, and the Hungarian young researchers presented their research in 35 posters, with many informal joint activities. Two of the speakers were professors from Cambridge University and two from Carnegie Mellon University, while other speakers came from Google, Deepmind, Huawei, Harvard University, ETH Zurich, among others.
A team consisting of the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR), the Institute for Computer Science and Control (SZTAKI) from Hungary, the French Aerospace Lab (ONERA) and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) from Germany was funded under the EU Horizon 2020 framework. The successful flight tests took place at the National Experimental Test Center for Unmanned Aircraft Systems, which is operated by DLR and located in Cochstedt, Germany.
There can hardly be a higher recognition of the hard work put into a Horizon Europe proposal than the 15/15 score on the anxiously awaited evaluation result letter. This is exactly the score we got for the one we submitted for the "Enhanced citizen preparedness in the event of a disaster or crisis-related emergency (HORIZON-CL3-2022-DRS-01-01)” call last November.
On Wednesday, 12 July 2023, a Chinese delegation of investors and government officials visited the National Laboratory for Autonomous Systems (ARNL) and the Artificial Intelligence National Laboratory (MILAB).
​​​​​​​DARIAH European research network, that focuses on the arts and humanities, held its annual event between 6-9 June in Budapest. The main topic of the DARIAH Annual Event 2023 was the data management and data curation of cultural heritage.
In the latest edition of the Australian Describo newsletter one can read about the ELKH ARP Aroma developments. The aim of the ELKH ARP project is to create a software platform to store, archive and share research data. The ARP software system (ARP platform) is designed and created by SZTAKI DSD Department of Distributed Systems. The newly developed AROMA extension, that adds a new data packaging solution to the already existing solution, has been developed to this very system and is based on the Describo software.
Bilbao hosted the technology-focused Tech-X Conference of the Gaia-X initiative, which was co-organized with a Hackathon. The competing teams had to work on real-life end-to-end scenarios which leverage the Gaia-X Open-Source Software and the Trust Framework. Our colleague, Márk Emődi’s team won second place.
80% of Europe's buildings will still be in use in 2050. Action is needed to preserve their integrity and value. Modern countries generate an incomparable amount of data and information about the building stock, such as 3D geometry data, operational information, measurements, etc., which are usually lost or unused, unstructured and not updated. The vision of the EU-funded BUILDCHAIN project is that this information and data have the potential to change the way we design, construct, and maintain our buildings.
In just over 7 months, following the incident involving the T-FLEX demonstrator in August, 2022, the FLiPASED project-team (i.e., engineers and technicians from SZTAKI, Technical University of Munich, German Aerospace Center (DLR), ONERA - The French Aerospace Lab) has made a remarkable effort to redesign and rebuild the aircraft, carry out static and ground vibration tests, and ultimately conduct flight tests.
SZTAKI is the Hungarian HUB for the Gaia-X European data sharing technology project. Therefore, it was obvious that our institute was represented at the Market-X conference in the Austrian capital on 14-15 March. Róbert Lovas, Gábor Érdi-Krausz and Ákos Hajnal aimed to gather more knowledge and contacts about the project's status and the European participants.
Co-organised by the Artificial Intelligence National Laboratory (MILAB) and the Autonomous Systems National Laboratory (ARNL) – both coordinated by SZTAKI – and Neumann Nonprofit Ltd., the international AI & AUT EXPO was held between 14-15 February 2023 at the Hungarian Railway Museum in Budapest.
The AI & AUT EXPO, co-organised by the national laboratories coordinated by SZTAKI and Neumann Nonprofit Public Benefit Ltd., attracted more than 480 visitors in two days.
On 30 November 2022, the COPROLOGS project's final meeting was held at SZTAKI, coordinated by József Váncza, project leader.
A conference on the ’Safety and Security Related Applications of UAVs in the Home Affairs Sector" was held in the Marble Hall in the Ministry for Home Affairs.
Dr Miklós Maróth, President of the Eötvös Loránd Research Network extended the mandate of Dr László Monostori as SZTAKI’s director by further 5 years.
Elisabeth Angyalka Ilie-Zudor, Director's Advisor at SZTAKI and senior researcher of the Research Laboratory on Engineering & Management Intelligence, will participate in a panel discussion where participants from European Partnerships will share their experiences.
A SZTAKI és a Fraunhofer Társaság közös vállalata, az EPIC InnoLabs által szervezett eseményen iparági szakemberek tartottak szakmai előadásokat. Mindegy 140 vendég vett részt a rendezvényen.
The research and development (R&D) projects, developments and results of SZTAKI were presented to the delegation by the Institute's researchers. The American guests were mainly interested in aeronautical and automation solutions, therefore the programme was set accordingly.
