  • 26 October 2016, Two lectures on Dutch open access negotiation with publishers

    Date & Time: Wednesday 26 October 2016, 12:00-13:00
    Location: UvA/FNWI, Science Park

    During the international open access week, held from Monday 24 until Thursday 27 October, we will pay attention to the transition of traditional journals and publications to open access.

    We have invited two members of the Dutch open access negotiation team, who negotiated (on behalf of the VSNU) about open access with Elsevier, ACS, Springer, Wiley, etc. They will share their views, elucidate their intentions and the decisions that have been made so far, such as the type of agreement (free, discount, or vouchers) and in some cases the selection of journal titles. The audience is invited to share their opinion and views on these topics.

    In this PhD thesis we study the effects of quantum entanglement, one of quantum mechanics most peculiar features, in nonlocal games and communication problems in zero-error information theory. This reseach has been done at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) in Amsterdam, the national research centre for mathematics and informatics in the Netherlands.

  • 28 October 2016, DIP Colloquium, Sabine Iatridou

    Speaker: Sabine Iatridou (MIT)
    Title: Since since again
    Date & Time: Friday 28 October 2016, 16:00-17:30
    Location: Room F1.15, ILLC, Science Park 107, Amsterdam

    The candidate will bring to the position a relevant and innovative research agenda in the area of Digital Humanities and will be able to teach within the programs of Media Studies. The candidate will be especially interested in the critical study, development and application of digital research methods, techniques and tools. In the study of information and media (broadly understood as books, artworks, audio-visual media and digital media), digital research materials are evolving in spectacular fashion, leading to new research affordances that require a critical approach to media as information, as well as to how digital media structure the reuse and interpretation of born-digital and historical data.
