TUCS Distinguished Lecture Series

Christos Papadimitriou, who will give a TUCS Distinguished Lecture on June 10, 2013 has been recently interviewed in the series "People of ACM". Here is a copy of the discussion:

"Christos Papadimitriou is a professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences Department at University of California, Berkeley. Before joining UC Berkeley in 1996, he taught at Harvard, MIT, Athens Polytechnic, Stanford, and University of California, San Diego. He serves on the Campus Advisory Board of the Berkeley Center for New Media.

Papadimitriou received the 2002 Knuth Prize from ACM SIGACT and the IEEE Technical Committee on the Mathematical Foundations of Computing for longstanding and seminal contributions to the foundations of computer science. In 2012 he and Elias Koutsoupias received the Gödel Prize for their joint work on the price of anarchy, a concept in game theory that measures how the efficiency of a system degrades due to selfish behavior of its agents. Papadimitriou is a Fellow of ACM and the National Academy of Engineering, and is a member of the National Academy of Sciences. He co-authored a paper, "Bounds for Sorting by Prefix Reversal," with Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, while Gates was studying at Harvard.


- You teach Computer Science and you write novels. What is the connection?

- There is a secret link between programming and storytelling. One day we'll read that neuroscientists discovered the two engage the same part of the brain. Writing a novel, especially near the end, when dozens of balls are hovering in the air and each must fall at exactly the right place, is close to what happens in coding-and in crafting an involved mathematical proof.

There are more connections: Teaching Computer Science is more effective and fun if it is intermingled with stories. I often stop in class to tell a story that animates the algorithm-like Theseus and the Minotaur for depth-first search-or about the discoverer of the algorithm or idea. How can you teach undecidability without recounting the tumultuous life and tragic death of Alan Turing? Or teach introduction to programming without mentioning Lady Ada?

Another connection is personal: My stories are often about computation. My first novel was Turing. My second, Logicomix, is a graphic novel about the crisis in mathematics in the early 20th century, which brought about the birth of the computer.

- You mentioned twice Alan Turing, whose centennial we celebrated last year. How has he influenced you?

- Turing has been the shining light of my career (see "Alan and I," CACM September 2012). Studying Electrical Engineering in Greece, I stumbled upon the Turing machine, and it transformed me intellectually. Turing's research legacy, automata theory, was my first topic in grad school at Princeton-where, as it turns out, I lived for two years in a dorm room rumored to be Turing's old quarters. The exacting rigor of his thought, his eerie talent for asking the right question, his amazing breadth of interest from hardware to biology, were major inspirations. Without my Turing fascination I would have never written stories, which would have left me missing a dimension.

- You collaborated with Bill Gates in the 1970s. What impression did he make on you?

- When I was an assistant professor at Harvard, Bill was a junior. My girlfriend back then said that I had told her: "There's this undergrad at school who is the smartest person I've ever met."

That semester, Gates was fascinated with a math problem called pancake sorting: How can you sort a list of numbers, say 3-4-2-1-5, by flipping prefixes of the list? You can flip the first two numbers to get 4-3-2-1-5, and the first four to finish it off: 1-2-3-4-5. Just two flips. But for a list of n numbers, nobody knew how to do it with fewer than 2n flips. Bill came to me with an idea for doing it with only 1.67n flips. We proved his algorithm correct, and we proved a lower bound-it cannot be done faster than 1.06n flips. We held the record in pancake sorting for decades. It was a silly problem back then, but it became important, because human chromosomes mutate this way.

Two years later, I called to tell him our paper had been accepted to a fine math journal. He sounded eminently disinterested. He had moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico to run a small company writing code for microprocessors, of all things. I remember thinking: "Such a brilliant kid. What a waste."

- What advice would you give to budding technologists considering a career in computing?

- I chose computing forty years ago, and it is one of the few choices I would repeat in a millisecond. These years were invaluable, singular, fascinating. I would trade them for nothing-save the next 40 years. Actually I don't have to trade, I plan to be there.

Computation has transformed itself radically a dozen times. It's like celestial mechanics, the chaos created by the strong interactions among three bodies: Science - industry - market. When I started computers were rooms, compilers a mystery, and Unix a strange new idea. The design of databases and chips became towering problems of the day. Parallelism came and went-and then came back. Robots, ditto. At first there were no networks, and then they were shaped as rings. AI was the world's most fascinating problem, then a problem nearly solved, then an embarrassment, and then promising, then not, until it thrived under another name. You must be ready to jump to a new raft-with both feet-a couple of times every decade. You must be constantly on the watch for the new huge thing. And be prepared to miss it, as I did with personal computers and Microsoft.

Computer Science was an adolescent, insecure field looking inward, trying to overcome its existential problems, to build a reputation, introverted by necessity, geeky by character. Then "the Internet" happened. Computation became the default platform of the universe. Today Computer Science is at the center of scientific discourse. Computation is worldly, it's about society, markets, people, brains, behaviors, perception, emotions. Computer Science is looking outwards now. I advise my undergrad students to take as many courses as they can: Economics, biology, sociology, humanities, linguistics, psychology.

All this makes computation the perfect subject for women. Clichés die hard, and entering freshmen are proverbially conformist when choosing majors, but I predict that computation will have a male majority for another twenty years at most, and then things will flip."

TUCS Highlight: Information Technology in the Finnish Matriculation Examination

Mikko-Jussi Laakso and his team at the Learning and Reasoning Lab reintroduces ViLLE as a tool for taking the Finnish Matriculation Examinations of the future with the aid of information technology.


TUCS Publication in Nature Methods

TUCS GP Student Jari Björne and his supervisor, Professor Tapio Salakoski have a publication "A Large-Scale Evaluation of Computational Protein Function Prediction" published in the Nature methods journal. This three point publication is the first one in the TUCS Publication Database that has been accepted in this revered journal.


TUCS GP doctoral defence

On Friday, March 15th, TUCS GP student Tommi Lehtinen presented his Doctoral thesis "Numbers and Languages" for public criticism. The opponent of M.Sc. Lehtinen was Docent Juha Kortelainen from University of Oulu. Docent Alexander Okhotin acted as the custos at this public defence.

Time: 12 noon
Place: Auditorium Cal4, Calonia

Publication Forum lists updated in the TUCS Publication Database

The Publication Forum lists were updated at the end of last year. The TUCS Publication Database was recently updated with the new lists. The capitalization of the forum titles should now also be improved from last year on our system. Furthermore, the system is now more exact, giving only journal and series options to the fields for journal or serie names, and only publisher options for publisher name fields.

There may still be abbreviations that are not all capitalized. For example “IEEE” is correct everywhere, but some less common abbreviations may have escaped. Also some titles may be found as duplicates, as they are duplicates in the original Publication Forum lists of altogether over 24.000 items. These are typically cases such as “IEEE International Conference on This and That” being also on the lists as “IEEE Conference on This and That”, or “Conference on This and That”.

New courses

New TUCS short course: Multicriteria Decision Modeling in Problem Solving (2013 Spring)

Organisation: ÅAU / Dept. of Information Technologies

Credit Points: 5

Schedule: Period IV

Responsible Person: Tomas Eklund

Objectives: The main goal of the course is to make students familiar with the basic models that can be used when addressing decision making problems taking care of the complex circumstances under which choosing an alternative is more an art of balancing multiple attributes or criteria than a mechanical search for a mathematical maximum or minimum.

Starting from a variety of real-world examples we will show how to elicit the set of feasible and competing alternatives, how to settle the measurement scales of preferences and how to search for the best alternative.


Multicriteria decision making under conditions of total uncertainty: maximin, maximax and minimax of regret. TOPSIS: normalized ratings, weighting, positive-ideal and negative-ideal solutions, separation measures, similarities, rank preference order. ELECTRE: outranking relationships, preferred alternatives, normalization and weighting, concordance and discordance sets and indexes, dominance relationships.

Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP)

How to reduce complex decisions to a series of pair-wise comparisons starting from a hierarchical representation of the criteria. How to manage tangible and intangible goals through the weighting of the criteria. The mapping of the pair-wise comparisons and its formal representation. On the consistency of pair-wise comparisons. From partial scoring of the criteria to total scoring of alternatives..

  2. Case studies – how to structure and execute?
  3. Experimental Process – how to perform an experiment?
  4. Surveys – how to make them?
  5. Validity issues in performing experimental research – how to make a sound research?
  6. How to visualise data?

The theory provided by the course is supported by practical examples.

Teaching methods: The course meetings provide a combination of regular lectures with interactive tasks that require active student participation (analyzing data, going together through some examples, etc.).

In order to pass this course, the participants have to successfully accomplish all home assignments (at least 50% of the maximum amount of points of each of them), which are to be given during the course. Moreover, each participant has to pass a final examination with at least 50% of the maximum amount of points. Students can get additional points for the lecture tasks (up to 10% of the final grade).

New course: Research Seminar on Structured Derivations (2013 Spring)

Lecturer: Ralph-Johan Back (backrj@abo.fi)

Course assistant: Stefan Asikainen (stefan.asikainen@abo.fi)

Course description:  Structured derivations was proposed in the late 90s as a systematic way of presenting mathematical proofs and argumentations. It has been tried in mathematics education in junior high school, high school, and university introduction courses, as well as in practical research papers. Presently the method is being developed in a large EU project, and  piloted in a number of high schools in Finland, Sweden and Estonia, with very promising results.

The seminar presents and discusses different aspects of structured derivations, such as mathematical and logical foundations of the method, experiences from using the method in education, use of the method in text books, computer support for structured derivations, structured derivations in program construction, use of the method in sciences,  etc.

The course gives 5 ECTS credits (requires seminar presentation)

Target audience: The course is suitable for M.Sc and Ph.D. students, as well as for researchers in the general area of Mathematics and Computer Science education and in Logic.

Prerequisites: A basic understanding of logic, as well as an interest in mathematics education

Time and place: Lectures are on Mondays 10 - 12, in lecture room Cobol (ICT building, 3rd floor). Lectures start on April 8.

Registration: No prior registration required.

Courses on transferable skills at University of Turku



Conference announcement: iFM 2013, Turku, June 10-14, 2013

Applying formal methods may involve the modeling of different aspects of a system that are expressed through different paradigms. Correspondingly, different analysis techniques will be used to examine differently modeled system views, different kinds of properties, or simply in order to cope with the sheer complexity of the system. The iFM conference series seeks to further research into hybrid approaches to formal modeling and analysis; i.e., the combination of (formal and semi-formal) methods for system development, regarding modeling and analysis, and covering all aspects from language design through verification and analysis techniques to tools and their integration into software engineering practice.

The plenary talks at iFM 2013 will be given by

  1. Jean-Raymond Abrial, Marseille, France
  2. Cosimo Laneve, University of Bologna, Italy
  3. Susanne Graf, VERIMAG, France
  4. Kim Larsen, Aalborg University, Denmark

The conference is organized at Department of IT, Åbo Akademi University and it will take place in the ICT Building. The PC is chaired by Einar Broch Johnsen (University of Oslo) and Luigia Petre (Åbo Akademi University).

TUCS GP travel reports

TUCS GP travel report: INFOTECH intensive course on “Open Source and Mobile Phones” by Jose Teixeira

Full name of the event: INFOTECH intensive course on "Open Source and Mobile Phones: Perspectives on Open Innovation and Generativity"

Place and date: Finland, Oulu, February 28, 2013

Type of event:INFOTECH graduate school intensive course

The scientific profile of the event: A doctoral students level course for celebrating research on open-source. Course provided by researchers experienced in investigating the open-source phenomena. A good list of literature was provided, students were expected to familiarize themselves with reading material on the subject matter for discussing during the lectures and workshops. An concluding essay is to be reported. Course will account for 4 ECTS credits on mandatory major subject studies.

Opinion on the best paper and its topic: The presentation of Bergquist on its own journal paper: “Rolandsson, B., Bergquist, M., & Ljungberg, J. (2011). Open source in the firm: Opening up professional practices of software development. Research Policy, 40(4), 576-587.”

Number of participants: Circa 15 participants

Key contacts established:

  1. Henrik Hedberg, University of Oulu
  2. Magnus Bergquist, University of Gothenburg

Kay contacts re-established:

  1. Salman Mian, University of Oulu
  2. Netta Iivari, University of Oulu
  3. Zeeshan Asghar, University of Oulu

TUCS GP travel report: Grounded theory by Tingting Lin

Full name of the event: INFORTE seminar of Grounded Theory

Place and date: Finland, Helsinki, February 12-13, 2013

Type of event: Seminar

The scientific profile of the event: In the seminar, Grounded Theory Method has been introduced by Professor Cathy Urquhart (Manchester Metropolitan University Business School) and Dr. Riitta Hekkala (Post Doc Researcher at Aalto University). Both of the speakers are very experienced researchers using GTM. Especially, Prof. Urquhart has delivered very vivid lecturers and tutorials; and Dr. Hekkala has shared her research and publication experiences in her doctoral dissertation and her post-doc works. The seminar is indeed very useful for beginners of GTM, but not for an in-depth discussion on the subject.

Opinion on the best paper and its topic: For me the best part is Prof. Urquhart’s presentation of “What is and isn’t GTM”, which has responded to many of my doubts in the subject.

Number of participants: 21

Touristic impressions: Not too much to say about Helsinki, I guess. But the accommodation we found from Airbnb is recommendable. It is a good alternative to expensive hotels near Aalto University, if you can share the two-room with another colleague.
