Webinar: PhD Bridge to Innovation – Dottorato, un valore aggiunto per le Aziende

Vi invitiamo a partecipare al webinar gratuito PhD Bridge to Innovation – Dottorato, un valore aggiunto per le Aziende, in collaborazione con l’Università degli Studi di Brescia, in programma martedì 28 aprile alle ore 16.

L’evento online intende far comprendere alle aziende il grande valore aggiunto rappresentato dal Dottorato di Ricerca (PhD), presentando opportunità e funzionamento del percorso di III livello che consente di investire su giovani con alta qualificazione scientifica, ottenendo di ritorno un intenso interscambio di conoscenze avanzate per il settore di riferimento e l’impiego integrato di competenze.

L’Università presenterà i Dottorati di Ingegneria, Economia, Giurisprudenza e Medicina con tutti i dettagli per:
– finanziare una borsa di ricerca
– attivare un dottorato in apprendistato
– attivare un dottorato industriale

Sarà interessante scoprire come il dottorato di ricerca offre alle aziende la possibilità di avere accesso a risorse umane formate per l’innovazione, mantenendo al contempo un rapporto di interazione e continuo scambio con l’Università e uno sguardo aggiornato sulle frontiere più avanzate nelle differenti discipline.

Graph Theory and Applications course (16h)

Detailed program  

 
Prof.ssa Anita Pasotti
Università di Brescia
 

Combinatorial optimization and graph theory have experienced a fast development over the last few decades. It is well known that a lot of problems in combinatorial optimization arose directly from everyday practice in engineering and management. Indeed all the topics considered in this course are motivated by pratical interpretations. The goal is to focus on some problems of combinatorial optimization which can be formulated and treated by graph theoretical methods. After an introduction into graph theory, we study some selected topics both from a theoretical and an algorithmic point of view.
No previous knowledge of graph theory is necessary.

 
 

Monday, 18 May 2020
Preliminary concepts. Eulerian graphs. Examples of applications.

Thursday, 21 May 2020
Representations of graphs. Optimization problems.

Monday, 25 May 2020
Matching theory: definitions, properties and main theorems.

Thursday, 28 May 2020
Matching theory: algorithms and applications.

Monday, 1 June 2020
Trees and forests: definitions, properties and main theorems.

Thursday, 4 June 2020
Minimum spanning tree: algorithms.

Monday, 8 June 2020
Travelling salesman problem: basic definitions, lower bounds, approximation algorithms.

Thursday, 11 June 2020
Travelling salesman problem: upper bounds via insertion algorithms and local search.

 
 

The course will be delivered through asynchronous lessons which will be uploaded on Google Drive on the dates indicated above. Students interested are requested to contact:

Vehicular Networks and Cooperative Driving (20h)

Mass media call them Autonomous Cars, meaning that they do not need a human driver; however, vehicles in traffic are never autonomous, they need to interact and cooperate with all the other vehicles and road users to drive you to destination and avoid crashes and accidents. The easiest way to cooperate is to communicate, so networking and communications are essential for the success of this extremely promising technology, that has been recently hampered by the first fatalities … all of them due to the lack of simple communication technology that would have prevented the tragic misjudgment of the situation by the driving algorithm.
This PhD course of 20 hours aims to present the more promising communication technologies for V2X (Vehicle to Anything) networking, from the 802.11p standard, to 5G-New Radio and network slicing, to Visible Light Communications, as well as the key functions needed to achieve cooperative driving and smart traffic management, including both safety related applications and traffic management.

 

LATEST NEWS: The course will be postponed due to the health emergency
