The series offers a large dose of informatics, where Czech and foreign experts introduce all informatics enthusiasts to various mysteries and both popular and lesser-known areas of IT. The lectures are popular among students, academic workers and simply anyone interested in informatics. The lectures are in Czech or English.
Events for students
MARCH AND OCTOBER
The jobs fair COFIT, or Companies at FIT, will give you an idea of what to expect in the jobs market or maybe help you find an interesting topic for your thesis. COFIT is held twice a year, and students can use the opportunity to discuss possible cooperation with partner companies.
Meet the Dean
All students of English bachelor and master programs have the opportunity to meet with the Dean, the Vice-Dean for Study Affairs and other representatives of the faculty. For first-year students, it is a chance to learn more about the faculty, meet senior students, ask questions or raise issues.
Research Summer at FIT (VýLeT)
Each year, we announce a program of support for students’ summer research – the Research Summer at FIT (abbreviated in Czech as VýLeT, meaning “trip”). The program provides funding to gifted bachelor and master students, allows them to get involved in scientific research activities at the faculty and leads them to independent scientific work and publication activity.
Prague PostgreSQL Developers Day
The Prague PostgreSQL Developers Day (P2D2) is a developers conference focused on the relational and open-source database management system PostgreSQL. The two-day event offers lectures and workshops. The event’s narrow focus is good news for apps developers and PostgreSQL administrators. The conference is organized by the Czech and Slovak PostgreSQL User Group (CSPUG).
The IT field is developing rapidly. So it is no surprise that the relatively rigid Czech law often cannot keep up with this pace. Consequently, questions and legal issues regularly appear whose solution is challenging. That is why, each year, we organize a meeting of experts, where they can discuss the current problems of law and informatics. The conference is open to students and the general public.
Prague Embedded Systems Workshop
The FIT Department of Digital Design is a proud organizer of the Prague Embedded Systems Workshop (PESW). It is a meeting place for students and experts in the field of embedded systems, their testing and application. The aim of the workshop, where students’ advancements in research are presented and discussed, is to boost cooperation among universities in Europe and outside Europe.
Prague Stringology Conference
Visitors to the Prague Stringology Conference will have the opportunity to attend lectures by foreign experts in stringology and related fields. This international stringology conference is organized by the Prague Stringology Club at the Department of Theoretical Computer Science.
StringMasters is a travelling workshop which during the year descends on different cities around the world. Some of the workshops are organized by the Prague Stringology Club. The workshop focuses on different disciplines of stringology, e.g. indexing, data compression and bioinformatics. It is a friendly, informal meeting without a fixed program. The event’s main aim is to connect experts in the field.
Every year, our faculty hosts the LinuxDays, the biggest event of its kind in the Czech Republic. Linux and open-source geeks can enjoy a weekend full of interesting lectures. The program will give you an idea about which lectures are intended for beginners and which are better suited for professionals.
