Two of our senior WMC students, Dora Beronić and Dino
Muharemagić, in collaboration with RIT Croatia alumni Paula Pufek and Matija
Šipek and under the mentorship of Dr. Branko Mihaljević and Aleksander Radovan,
wrote two research papers and presented them at the 44th International
Convention on Information and Communication Technology, Electronics, and
Microelectronics – MIPRO 2021.
The research paper on the topic „On Analyzing Virtual
Threads – a Structured Concurrency Model for Scalable Applications on the JVM",
authored by Dora Beronić, Paula Pufek, Branko Mihaljević and Aleksander
Radovan, presented research results of an experimental structured concurrency
model based on Virtual Threads in the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) introduced
within OpenJDK's Project Loom, exploring the updated implementation of virtual
threads and accompanying schedulers, as a novel form of lightweight user-mode
threads, demonstrating their efficiency on blocking operations and reviewing
possibilities of reducing memory footprints and context switching costs.
The research paper with the title „Next-Generation Web
Applications with WebAssembly and TruffleWasm", authored by Matija Šipek, Dino
Muharemagić, Branko Mihaljević and Aleksander Radovan, presented research
related to WebAssembly, a binary format compilation target that includes a low-level
assembly-like language used for targeting from other programming languages,
which allows near-native performance level due to its compactness, and
TruffleWasm, a WebAssembly interpreter hosted within GraalVM ecosystem and
Truffle Java framework, by demonstrating the system architecture and
preliminary performance test results within the academic environment.
MIPRO is the largest and the oldest international IT-related scientific conference in Croatia co-sponsored by IEEE, and all papers will be included in IEEE Xplore Digital Library and Web of Science CPCI-S.
A special issue of RIThink - BIG data has been published! The guest-editor of this special issue is Dr. Martin Žagar, who collected eight texts: seven peer-reviewed papers and one non peer-reviewed text. In his words:
In order to celebrate 20 years of its existence and operation, the Council of Polytechnics and Colleges in Croatia held a ceremonial session in the Croatian National Theater in Zagreb, on May 13, 2022.
Senior capstone project is the crown of education at RIT Croatia for graduating students of the Hospitality and Tourism Management program. Senior year students choose topics based on their own interests, which gives them the opportunity to tackle anything they find interesting and worth exploring. Creating a successful senior capstone project is a complex process which requires a lot of maturing along the way, a lot of problem solving, researching and, above all, a good and firm connection with the faculty member mentoring the whole process.
Eta Sigma Delta (ESD), an honorary society for students of the Hospitality and Tourism Management program at RIT Croatia's Dubrovnik campus, held its induction ceremony to welcome 10 new members on Thursday, April 29 at the Hotel Hilton Imperial.
