On Sept. 3rd, 2018, ITEC met for the annual research day. This being the first time for a lot of people, we learned a lot of interesting things on the work, focus and result of our colleagues and were able to identify potential collaborations and joint efforts. Time before lunch was filled by Pecha Kucha style presentations and after lunch we came together in group discussions to identify and report overlaps and potentially beneficial collaborations.

Prof. Radu Prodan and Dr. Dragi Kimovski participate at “The 1st ACM SIGOPS Summer School on Advanced Topics in Systems” where with many proeminent speakers in the area of distributed systenms. They will also present a poster on their work on “A Nature-Inspired Adaptive Fog Architecture”.

From July 12th to July 14th, staff and students affiliated with the Klagenfurt Game Jam have gathered at the Turracher Höhe for a retreat to discuss the status quo of gaming at Universität Klagenfurt. Organised by Assoc. Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr. Mathias Lux, the team of fellow professors, as well as university and student assistants, has taken a moment to celebrate the achievements of the past year, ranging from the most successful Game Jams in the history of AAU to the second Game Pics Show and the impressive start of the Game Studies and Engineering master’s programme, as well as to organise their future strategies and offerings. The serene landscape of the Gurktal was no mere backdrop for strict work, though: once the daily meetings were over, there was enough time to explore the beauty of the mountainside by hiking.
