Today, 14 October 2022, we successfully concluded the conference MATCOS-22  The Middle-European Conference on Applied Theoretical Computer Science. The two-day event was organized by Andrej Marušič Institute (UP IAM), the Faculty of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Information Technologies (UP FAMNIT) and in cooperation with the research institute InnoRenew CoE.

MATCOS-22 was held as part of the 25th Multi-Conference on Information Society that took place from 10 to 14 October 2022, in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

For the scope of the conference, two goals were set - to come up with ideas and solutions from the field of theoretical computing, that can be directly used in real world applications, and to collect theoretical results based on some fruitful ideas, that may be useful to adopt for practical problems. Special emphasis was placed on applications such as simulation, bioinformatics, digital signal and image processing, data science, digital forensics, logistics, smart homes/cities and IoT (Internet of Things).

»This year, as last year, we have again introduced regular and short contributions, allowing for a greater number of contributors and a greater exchange of ideas. The programme included a total of 32 papers (11 regular and 21 short papers) and the presentations were held in two parallel sessions to give participants enough time for discussion. We are pleased that more than 40 participants were part of the event, thus contributing to the creative atmosphere of the conference,« commented Assoc. Prof. Rok Požar, Chair of the MATCOS-22 Organizing Committee.

This year’s keynote speaker was Prof. Dr. György Turán (University of Illinois at Chicago, and Research Group on AI, University of Szeged). In his keynote lecture titled »Interpretability of deep-learned error-correcting codes«, he answered questions about whether the error-correcting codes, today often created by deep learning, differ from the traditional ones whose existence was demonstrated by C. Shannon in 1948.
