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.

On Saturday, September 25, Milena Kužnin, a faculty member at RIT Croatia’s Hospitality and Tourism Management program, held an interesting lecture on the topic “Emotional Intelligence (EI) – Why is it important and how to develop it” in Kulturni Centar Jadran in Dubrovnik.
The guest lecture came up as a result of collaboration between Milena Kužnin and Ivana Tepšić, an RIT Alumna who is one of the founders of Kulturni Centar Jadran in Dubrovnik.
On Saturday, September 18, students and faculty members at the Dubrovnik campus united their forces to mark the World Cleanup Day 2021 by organizing and executing a cleanup action of the area surrounding our campus.
Hi everyone, Dean Hudspeth here smiley. It is Wednesday, September 1st, 2021, while I am writing this, which is the first day of our 25th academic year. We had our freshmen orientation in both our Dubrovnik and Zagreb campuses, and welcomed our 25th generation of new students. These students will graduate in 2025, which is also really neat!
