  • Project by eScience Research Institute Exhibited at Venice Biennale of Architecture

    A dynamic model of passenger flows at the new Olympic Park railroad station in Adler will be demonstrated at Venice Biennale of Architecture till the end of November 2018. The model was developed by members of the Laboratory of Interactive Visualization of the eScience Research Institute by order of Studio44 Architecture bureau which designed the new railroad station.


  • Climate Change: Future Challenges for Urban Scientists

    This end of February has become St. Petersburg’s coldest in the past several decades. According to Alexander Kolesov, Chief Meteorologist at the Northwest Center of the Russian Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring, we last had such cold weather back in 1955. Europe experienced a drop in temperature as well; actually, the recent cyclone even got a nickname, the Beast from the East. So, what is happening to the climate, and how will these global changes affect St. Petersburg? During a lecture at the Institute of Design & Urban Studies, Artem Pavlovsky, climatologist and member of the State Research and Design Center of St. Petersburg Master Plan, talked about the reasons behind climate change, and its effect on the development of urban territories.


  • First Renga Software Authorized Training Center Slated to Open at ITMO University

    The Renga Software company and ITMO University have signed a partnership agreement; among the partners’ future plans is the opening of Renga’s first authorized training center. There, instructors from ITMO University will introduce Renga’s BIM software to specialists whose previous experience involved working with two- and three-dimensional CAD software. Renga’s products will also be a part of the educational process at the university.


  • ITMO University Opens Educational Courses on BIM Technologies in Building and Infrastructure Design

    ITMO University has launched an educational program for professional training in cooperation with OOO “Research and Development Center “Etalon””. The program is mainly dedicated to study of BIM technology. It can be used to account for all the properties and measurements of the building not only during construction, but also during its operational stage and to predict the possible faults in the structure as well as monitor its condition in real-time. By increasing their theoretical and practical knowledge through the program, specialists are able to work as BIM- managers, coordinators and modelers.


  • New Program for Crowd Behavior Analysis

    ITMO University scientists in alliance with international colleagues developed a program for bringing together computer models of crowd behavior. According to the authors, this helps forecast emergencies that appear during mass gatherings. The method already as a base for the crowd behavior study at the Kumbh Mela festival. The research article was published in Future Generation Computer Systems.


  • ITMO’s Mini-Conference on Advanced Physics

    ITMO University hosted a mini-conference for first and second year students that study advanced physics. The event’s idea was to give them insight into some of the aspects of research activities and train them to present their research results. Some of their works will be presented at contests and published in science journals, noted Alexandr Chirtsov, the conference's coordinator.


  • ITMO and "Russian Highways" to Develop Local Roads

    According to the cooperation agreement signed on November 30, specialists at ITMO University and "Russian Highways" ("Avtodor") state company, plan to run joint projects focusing on improvement of Russia’s highway infrastructure.


  • Modeling Reality: the Fifth "Young Scientists" Conference in Krakov

    Thanks to high-performance computing, scientists can now analyze large amounts of data, predict or model different situations and improve various systems. Algorithms and applications that are developed at ITMO are used in medicine, industry, programming and many other areas. Some of them were presented at the fifth 'Young Scientists' international conference in Poland.


  • "Slower is Faster" - a Mexican Scientist on Systems' Efficiency

    Systems that work with maximum output aren't always efficient — working at medium power is often a lot more productive. This can be true for many areas of human activity like economics, urban science, sociology, psychology, etc. Carlos Gershenson, a Mexican researcher at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, spoke about the "slower is faster" concept during an open lecture at ITMO University.


  • Network Science for Computing Beliefs

    One's opinion on a subject constantly changes, and depends on the opinions of others, as well. Describing this process and studying the reasons behind it is a hard task. Exact mathematical models and methods for studying them would allow to not only forecast changes in public opinion, but also control it to some extent. An international group of scientists supported by the Russian Science Foundation got breakthrough results in this field. Those were recently published in the highly rated Science journal.
