Two FIT students received prizes in the Brno PhD Talent competition
Among the 130 participating first-year doctoral students, two entrants from the Faculty of Information Technology impressed the jury of Brno PhD Talent, a competition among Brno universities. Roman Andriushchenko and Jiří Pavela, both from the Department of Intelligent Systems, made it to the top-twenty-five and will thus receive a scholarship from the city of Brno. While Roman Andriushchenko focuses on computer-aided synthesis of probabilistic models, Jiří Pavela works on efficient techniques for measuring software performance. The competing projects and contestants themselves have been assessed by leading experts, primarily from abroad. The selected students will receive a financial aid of CZK 300,000 paid over the next three years. It should provide talented doctoral students with better conditions so that they can fully devote themselves to their studies and research.
