SET for BRITAIN

I had been shortlisted from hundreds of applicants to display my poster in the House of Commons Terrace Marquee in the Engineering Sciences Session of the SET for BRITAIN 2012 competition on March 12, 2012 (now STEM for BRITAIN).

The event was run by The Parliamentary and Scientific Committee in collaboration with The Royal Academy of Engineering, The Institute of Physics, the Society of Biology, The Royal Society of Chemistry, the Physiological Society, the Wellcome Trust and the Society of Chemical Industry, with financial support from BP, Airbus/EADS, The Institution of Engineering and Technology, AgChem Access, Oxford Instruments, IBMS and GE Hitachi.

Andrew Miller MP, Chairman of the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee, said,
"This annual competition is an important date in the parliamentary calendar because it gives MPs an opportunity to speak to a wide range of the country's best young researchers.

"These early career scientists are the architects of our future and SET for BRITAIN is politicians' best opportunity to meet them and understand their work."

Slovak government scholarship

Within the National Scholarship Program of the Slovak Republic, I was granted a 4-month scholarship on December 16, 2008. This scholarship allowed me to conduct a part of my Doctoral studies in the Computational Intelligence Laboratory at the Osaka Prefecture University, Japan. In this Laboratory, I cooperated with Professor Hisao Ishibuchi, Ph.D. and Assistant Professor Yusuke Nojima, Dr. (now Associate Professor) from May 15, 2009 to September 15, 2009.

Scholarship of the Finnish government

On March 27, 2007 the Finnish Government granted a 9-month scholarship to me through the Centre for International Mobility (CIMO) (now Finnish National Agency for Education) to allow me to be a visiting PhD student at the Department of Computer Sciences of the University of Tampere, Finland. I accepted this scholarship soon afterwards and arrived in Finland and that University on August 6, 2007. There I cooperated with Professor Martti Juhola, Ph.D., the Head of the Data Analysis Research Group (DARG). My work consisted in classification of otoneurlogical data coming from the Helsinki University Central Hospital (now Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa) and in making new algorithms which use fuzzy rules. My stay came to its end on May 31, 2008.

Final of the ACM CZ Student Research Competition

The ACM CZ Student Research Competition is a contest of student works submitted by bachelor and master students from the Czech and the Slovak university centers specialized in informatics (computer science) and related fields of study. It has been organized by the Czech ACM Chapter since 2004. Its model and its inspiration is a corresponding competition organized by ACM in the USA.

The ACM CZ Student Research Competition 2006 was sponsored by Microsoft CZ. Microsoft was also the host of the final of ten best contributions. My contribution was one of them. The following is written in the proceedings of the final:

"Participation in the final is a proof of professional level of contestants and their home universities."

Dean's award for my excellent Master thesis

In July 2006, the then dean of the Faculty of Management Science and Informatics of the University of Zilina, Slovakia, Associate Professor Karol Matiasko, PhD. (now Full Professor), conferred the Dean's Award for my Excellent Master Thesis to me. He has written the following about it:

"When I was reading his Master thesis titled Analysis of Algorithms for Making Fuzzy Rules, I was surprised at its quality and research style. His thesis is not only a common one, it has character of a research and scientific study. It is full of interesting and detailed comparisons and classifications. Its conclusions are also well-founded on scientific papers and extensive experiments."
