ITAT conference

ITAT (Information technologies -- Applications and Theory) is annual European conference focused mostly on the results of young researcher's, PhD students and other scientists from the area of computer science.

Date: September 15--19, 2016

The conference is a platform for both the exchange of results and experiences in CS community as well as informal meetings in mountain resorts of Slovakia. Language of the conference is English since this year on, even though it used to be Czech and Slovak till last year.

Best paper award

The best paper of the ITAT 2016 was:

  • Hans Degroote, Bernd Bischl, Lars Kotthoff, Patrick De Causmaecker: Reinforcement Learning for Automatic Online Algorithm Selection - an Empirical Study from workshop WCIDM


Conference topics

The area of topics of the conference is broad and contains (not only):

  • Software engineering (software specification, software design, design patterns, modelling, meta-models)
  • Data and knowledge processing (XML technology, semantic web, ontologies, user preferences, data-mining, software agents, multi-agent systems)
  • Security and thrust-management (cryptography, security, formal models, protocols, thrust)
  • Computational intelligence (neural networks, genetic and evolutionary algorithms, fuzzy systems, artificial intelligence)
  • Theoretical foundations of Computer science (theory, algorithms, computational complexity, languages, models, logics)
  • Distributed computation (parallel and distributed systems and algorithms, models of distributed systems, parallel programs semantics)
  • Mathematical and computational linguistic (formal language description, language data, applications of NLP)
  • Didactics of Computer science


The following four workshops will be part of the conference:

  • Slovenskočeský NLP workshop (SloNLP 2016)
  • Computational Intelligence and Data Mining
  • Workshop on Algorithmic and Structural Aspects of Complex Networks and Applications
  • Algorithmic Aspects of Finding Semigroups of Partial Automorphisms of Combinatorial Structures
