Researchers in mathematical logic and knowledge based systems, graph theory, operational research, cryptology etc., have all made breakthroughs in developing solutions for many problems on which modern technology and everyday life depend. The practice in Serbia shows that results obtained by our scientists remained on a theoretical level. Thus, we propose a concerted effort towards developing ICT applications of these results with the main objectives to:

  • strengthen the S&T base in Serbia for the development of ICT as the core of the knowledge-based society and economy,

  • utilize the knowledge of advanced mathematical methods, commonly unfamiliar to engineers, for obtaining novel or significantly improving the existing ICTs,

  • help reduce the digital divide by unlocking the innovation and creativity of the partners. The project will focus on a limited set of challenges with a firm mathematical background. It will establish cooperation between research groups in mathematics, CS, engineering, telecommunications, and arts and humanities for mutual benefit. We will concern • ICT

as the main research area, and its applications into some key socio-economic challenges (health, power systems, sharing of cultural resources) defined in the national strategy for science:

  • Contributions to prediction, prevention, diagnostic and therapeutic approaches (1.2),

  • New technologies for renewable energy sources and clean technology (2.2),

  • The cultural heritage, creating capital works (7.7).

Project Description

The project team will comprise 34 institutions and 192 researchers in mathematics, ICT and its applications into health, power systems, and digitization of cultural heritage. We will envisage numerous subprojects: 1. Intelligent clinical consultation system, 2. Advanced cryptology techniques and applied mathematics for information security in distributed systems, 3. Algorithms, combinatorics and optimization, 4. Mathematical analysis of renewable energy sources, 5. Simulation, analysis and optimization of wireless telecommunication networks, 6. Development of intelligent systems based on data mining strategies, 7. Middleware for simultaneous management and control of distributed systems from municipal communal services, 8. An adaptive system of computer assisted learning, 9. Applications of ICT in digitization and scientific-historical-archival treatment of heritage, 10. Advanced Methods in 3D Modeling and Simulating of the Original Patents of Nikola Tesla, 11. A portal of Serbian Official Papers 1813-2013, 12. 1700th anniversary of the Edict of Milan: Emperor Constantine and Mediana; The project will involve J. Edmonds, one of the creators of the field of combinatorial optimization, and Z. Obradovic, director of the Center for Information Science and Technology at Temple University, Philadelphia. 57 young researchers will be hired addressing the "brain drain".
