Regular version of the site


Regular research seminars are held with focus in two areas.

  1. Computational modelling techniques are offered as a combination of workshops and lectures. Instruction includes Matlab toolkits for clustering neural networks, visual interface programs for Bayesian and Dynamic Bayesian networks and custom coding are taught for diffusion models.
  2. Eye tracking workshops include both theoretical overview of the human visual system and practical implementation of eye tracking experiments. These workshops typically involve intensive full day or weekend introductions at least once per year as well as bimonthly sessions to improve skills.
Bimonthly group meetings are also held as a forum for open discussion, review of relevant literature, and group problem solving.

Java workshop

ACME is announcing an elective workshop on Java programming this year.

The meetings take place 'most' Thursday evenings from 7pm till 8:30 on Armianskii 4/2.

A few things to help you decide if you are interested:

  • This is an unofficial elective/workshop, but Dr. Joe MacInnes (Associate Professor, School of Psychology) will teach it just like a first year introduction to computer science course, so it will be thorough.
  • Why Java? It is a true programming language (unlike Matlab) and can be used to teach proper programming methods, structures and techniques. These techniques will serve you far beyond any single programming language (this will even help you in Matlab and Python).
  • Java also has a great, free development environment called Eclipse that we will use. We start with basic programming skills, then on to data structures and Object Oriented Programming (OOP), then finally to Java and OpenGL graphics.

The workshop is held in English.

If you want to join the workshop, please contact the head of the ACME Group.
