T.U.E.S.Day Lecture Computer Science
Enjoy a free lunching during a computer science (and mathematics!) related lecture. This lunch lecture will be hosted by none other than Prof. dr.h.c. L.J.M. Rothkrantz, an honorary member of the study association.
Here is an abstract from the lecture:
The city of Prague is situated along the Vltava river (Moldau). This river is a typical rain river. After heavy rainfall in the Black Forest in Germany, the water in the river can raise for several meters. In 2002 there was heavy flooding in Prague. There were some casualties and heavy damage to the infrastructure and buildings of Prague. Some measurements were taken such as removable dams, broadening the riverbed, a cascade of dams stream upwards with artificial lakes to buffer the water. The measurements can only be tested by simulation studies and models. We will discuss and present some of them. To educate civilians and first responders in the city as fire workers, police officers and medical staff a special MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) has been designed. Part of the lessons including simulations of evacuation will be presented.
