The meeting was attended by representatives of companies and public institutions, including: Bumar Group, Centre for Health Information Systems, Department of Information Systems and Telecommunications of the Defense Ministry, the City Hall of Radom, KGSP, BIK. The conference focused on the design of complex IT systems. The conference also raised issues of faculty collaboration with commercial companies and public institutions in such areas as: energy security, smart urban management, optimization of road and rail transport, optimization of business processes in the mining industry, emergency response. Chairman of the organizing committee of the conference was T. Górski. For many years, the Institute of Information Systems together with the Department of Information Systems Management (Faculty of Management, Warsaw University) and the Department of Computer Science for Economics (College of Economic Analysis SGH) leads International Seminar entitled "Problems of research and development projects of informatization of the state". The head of organizational development and scientific seminar is B. Szafrański. In 2012, like in previous years, student research teams from WCY WAT participated in international IT competitions, trade fairs and exhibitions of inventions, where they presented their projects. The biggest success in 2012 was the winning of four gold medals for projects: SAPER and SENSE at the International iena Fair in Nuremberg, SIIF in Seoul and the International Warsaw Inventions Exhibition IWIS. In addition to the medals the SAPER project was awarded two special prizes. Projects were developed by teams: ARMED (Army Engineers and Developers) and InnoWATors under the direction of a mentor M. Chmielewski. A real success was also the participation of both teams in an international technology competition Imagine Cup In the national finals of the competition in the most prestigious category Software Design our teams ranked 1st and 2nd and qualified for the second stage of the competition held in Sydney. Another place among the European leaders took a team from the WCY WAT under the direction of R. Kasprzyk. Our young scientists during the 5th edition of the international competition Google Online Marketing Challenge were among the fifteen best teams in Europe. The participants of the competition were to conduct an advertising campaign on the Internet using Google AdWords tools for any company. The WAT Chancellor recognizing outstanding achievements of M. Chmielewski and R. Kasprzyk in the development of students' scientific movement, during the celebration of National Education Day in 2012, honored them with the Chancellor's Award. 4...
