Prof. Dr. Jörg Lässig, head of the Enterprise Application Development (EAD) group of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the University of Applied Sciences Zittau/Görlitz (HZG, Hochschule Zittau/Görlitz), gave the talk "Understanding Quantum Computing - Computing Model and Algorithms" on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 at 15:10 (3:10pm) in Hefei University [合肥学院] in the Lecture Room 308 at the third floor of Building 35 [合肥学院 计算机科学与技术系 合肥市 230601蜀山区 经济技术开发区 南2区/南艳湖校区 锦绣大道99号 35栋 308教室]. [poster]

The talk was open for all interested audiences and presented a really nice and easy-to-understand introduction to quantum computing from the perspective of algorithms. Quantum computing seems to become a real possibility in the near future, with IBM making a 20-qubit computer available through their "Q-Experience" program via the web for any user and announcing a 50-qubit computer. In his interesting lecture on this exciting topic, Prof. Lässig explained the basic mathematics and features of quantum computations and gave live demonstrations of two algorithms on the IBM system via the web. This way, the audience obtained a basic understanding on how to write programs for quantum computers within only 1.5 hours of time.

This talk followed directly the presentation "An Application Meta-Model to Support the Execution and Benchmarking of Scientific Applications in Multi-Cloud Environments" by Mr. Markus Ullrich in the same room, which started at 14:00.

Mr. Markus Ullrich, researcher at the Enterprise Application Development (EAD) group of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the University of Applied Sciences Zittau/Görlitz (HZG, Hochschule Zittau/Görlitz), gave the talk "An Application Meta-Model to Support the Execution and Benchmarking of Scientific Applications in Multi-Cloud Environments" on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 at 14:00 (2pm) in Hefei University [合肥学院] in the Lecture Room 308 at the third floor of Building 35 [合肥学院 计算机科学与技术系 合肥市 230601蜀山区 经济技术开发区 南2区/南艳湖校区 锦绣大道99号 35栋 308教室]. [poster]

The talk was open for all interested audiences. First, the opportunities of cloud computing were presented and a use-case from scientific computing, which can tremendously benefit from the opportunities of the cloud, was given. The question about how to best match the requirements for resources, such as processors, I/O, storage space, and runtime of a given application to the environments available for rent from a cloud provider was proposed. Mr. Ullrich introduced a meta-model for this purpose, which is unique in its ability to represent all the relevant features of this question instead of concentrating of single aspects. His talk was followed by an interesting and inspiring discussion with the audience.

This talk was directly followed by the lecture "Understanding Quantum Computing - Computing Model and Algorithms" by Prof. Dr. Jörg Lässig starting at 15:10 (3pm) in the same room.

On Wednesday, October 25, 2017 from 09:30 to 10:20, I presented my research talk "Automating Scientific Research in Optimization" in Anhui University (AHU) [安徽大学], Conference Hall on the First Floor below of the Xingzhi Building [安徽大学磬苑校区行知楼负一楼报告厅] at the Symposium on Evolutionary Computation [进化计算领域专家系列学术报告会] under the organization of Professors Xingyi Zhang (Anhui University) and Bin Li (USTC) for the IEEE CIS Hefei Chapter. The talk followed the presentation "Approximation-Guided Many-Objective Optimisation and the Travelling Thief Problem" by our guest researcher Dr. Markus Wagner, Senior Lecturer from the Optimisation and Logistics Group of the School of Computer Science of The University of Adelaide, Australia and, in turn, was followed by the talk "Species-based PSO for Continuous Dynamic Constrained Optimization" by Associate Prof. Dr. Wenjian Luo (USTC). All talks are open for any interested audience. [poster, slides]
