  • 23 - 25 October 2019, 16th International Conference on Formal Aspects of Component Software (FACS 2019), Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    Date: 23 - 25 October 2019
    Location: Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    Component-based software development proposes sound engineering principles and techniques to cope with the complexity of present-day software systems. However, many challenging conceptual and technological issues remain in component-based software development theory and practice. Furthermore, the advent of service-oriented and cloud computing, cyber-physical systems, and the Internet of Things has brought to the fore new dimensions, such as quality of service and robustness to withstand faults, which require revisiting established concepts and developing new ones.

    FACS 2019 is concerned with how formal methods can be applied to component-based software and system development. Formal methods have provided foundations for component-based software through research on mathematical models for components, composition and adaptation, and rigorous approaches to verification, deployment, testing, and certification.

  • 25 October 2019, Set Theory Seminar, Asaf Karagila

    Speaker: Asaf Karagila
    Title: Stranger Things: The ZF-verse obtained by adding just one Cohen to L
    Date & Time: Friday 25 October 2019, 12:00-13:00
    Location: ILLC Seminar Room F1.15, Science Park 107, Amsterdam

    Abstract

    Adding a single Cohen real to L provides us with a lattice of intermediate models, but if we only consider models of ZFC, these models are all somehow very similar (except L itself). Without assuming the Axiom of Choice in those intermediate models we have a very different picture. We will discuss the construction of the Bristol model, which is a model between L and L[c], which does not have the form L(x) for any set x.

  • 29 October 2019, Workshop the next step in valorisation

    Date & Time: Tuesday 29 October 2019, 08:30-10:30
    Location: UvA, Amsterdam Science Park. Exact location TBA

    With your research activities you generate ideas constantly. That’s not too difficult. But to turn an idea into a business case is usually more complicated. In this workshop the experts from IXA share different models on why and how to transform your idea into a more concrete concept which can be turned into a solid business case.

    12 November 2019, ABC Lecture Series, Robert J Zatorre

    Speaker: Robert J Zatorre
    Title: Why do we love music. A view from cognitive science
    Date & Time: Tuesday 12 November 2019, 17:00-19:00
    Location: Roeterseilandcampus, Building M, room 1.01, Plantagemuidergracht 12, 1018 TV, Amsterdam

    In this lecture I will present findings from cognitive neuroscience that bear on the question of how we get from perception of sound patterns to pleasurable responses. I will first discuss evidence that corticocortical loops from and to the auditory cortex are responsible not only for perceptual processes but also for working memory, sensory-motor, and predictive functions that are essential to produce and perceive music. Then, I will discuss neuroimaging and brain modulation studies from our lab focusing on the dopaminergic reward system, its involvement in musical pleasure, and what happens when that system is disrupted.
