International activity

Kremenchuk Mykhailo Ostrohradskyi National University is actively working on the development of international relations, which are aimed at expanding cooperation with educational and research institutions of foreign countries in order to increase the efficiency of the educational process and research work at the university, finding partners for joint international projects and receiving grants, scholarships. KrNU partners are the Technical University of Braunschweig (Germany), Badji Mokhtar University of Annaba (Algeria), University of Matej Bel in Banská Bystrica (Slovakia), University of Ljubljana (Slovenia), Miskolc University, etc.

In connection with the declared European integration of Ukraine and on the basis of priorities for expanding cooperation with countries near and far abroad, the Department of Computer and Information Systems is actively working to find foreign partners and establish close contacts with scientists. At the same time, a number of areas of interest for cooperation are outlined: expansion of creative and scientific relations between higher educational institutions of Ukraine and European countries, in particular, with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics of the Technical University of Košice (Slovakia).

In addition, lecturers, students and graduate students of the CIS department take an active participation in All-Ukrainian and International scientific conferences and internship programs abroad.

Since 2018, employees of the CIS department prof. Huchenko M.I., assoc. prof. Sydorenko V.M. and assoc. prof. Mamchur D.H. participate in the project ERASMUS+ KA2 Digital competence framework for Ukrainian teachers and other citizens - dComFra, 598236-EPP-1-2018-1-LT-EPPKA2CBHE-SP, in which they actively cooperate with the research and teaching employees of related departments of following universities:

  • Vytautas Magnus University (Kaunas, Lithuania);
  • Carinthian University of Applied Sciences (Villach, Austria);
  • Czech University of Natural Sciences (Prague, Czech Republic);
  • Commission of Public Education Pedagogical University (Krakow, Republic of Poland);
  • Polytechnic University of Bucharest (Romania).

During the project M.I. Huchenko, V.М. Sydorenko and D.H. Mamchur visited the partner universities, where they took part in events dedicated to the development of new approaches and measures to increase the digital competencies of Ukrainian teachers and other citizens, taking into account the current state of development of digital technologies.

On November 14-15, 2019, Natalia Sokhin, assistant of Computer and Information Systems Department, and Svitlana Kravchenko, student of of Computer and Information Systems Department, took part in the international conference LOGI-2019. The event was held in cooperation with the Faculty of Technology of the Institute of Technology and Business in Ceske Budejovice, VSTE. The conference was held under the auspices of the project "Future of Autonomous Mobility in Central Europe (FAME)". This project is funded by a grant from the International Visegrad Fund. The organizer of the international scientific conference LOGI is the Institute of Technology and Business in České Budějovice. This conference is dedicated to current topics and trends in the area of transport and logistics, related to the functioning of all modes of transport and transport and logistics technologies. Topics of work include the operation of autonomous vehicles and loading and unloading equipment, automotive, the use and operation of air, water, road and rail transport, the application of applied mathematical methods and methods of research operations in terms of transport and logistics.

Nataliia Sokhin has presented the report "Study of prognostic capabilities of the algorithm for building a local model of a controlled process for traffic forecasting", and Svitlana Kravchenko has presented the report "Method of classification of time series of tonal estimates in problems of sentimental analysis of textual content". Both reports were made in the section "Innovative information systems and smart technologies application within transport and logistics processes" ("Application of innovative information systems and intelligent technologies in transport and logistics processes").

As a result of participation, in addition to scientific publications, further cooperation of the Faculty of Technology of the Institute of Technology and Business in České Budějovice and the Faculty of Electronics and Computer Engineering of KrNU was reached.

From June 1, 2018 to August 31, 2018, a 12-week internship of Anton Gladyr, a student of the CIS department, was held within the research internship program of Ukrainian students in Canada Mitacs Globalink Research Internship Program. Mitacs is a non-profit national research organization that funds international research and academic exchange programs for undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students in partnership with universities, industry and the Government of Canada.

Anton Gladyr's internship was based at McGill University, Canada's oldest and most famous university in Montreal, Quebec, under the guidance of Professors John Kildea and Laurie J. Hendren as part of the Opal - Oncology Portal and Application project. and a mobile app) at the University Medical Center, which is one of Canada’s largest medical facilities.

During the internship, Anton developed a "friendly" user interface that allows cancer patients to access information about their treatment in a convenient way. An article about the successful internship of a Kremenchug student at McGill University has been published on the official website of the Canadian government organization Mitacs: https://www.mitacs.ca/en/impact/cancer-patients-receive-easy-access-treatment-information.

The article notes that the new mobile application is convenient and easy to use, it helps to improve the quality of information support for cancer patients at Montreal Medical Center at McGill University. The appendix, which is called a project and is currently being used in a pilot study, provides patients with access to their treatment plan, laboratory results, timing of procedures, and disease-specific educational materials. Internship Director Professor John Kildea notes: “Anton's internship as a developer in the McGill Medical Physics department of our Medical Center has been a great support for our research team. His advanced interface, which contains information about patients, will help us organize the necessary data for medical research and allow patients to find out about their health before meeting with a doctor, which will save time for both patients and medical staff. The collected data will allow to carry out research of comparative efficiency and to define the most effective methods of treatment of patients. This is a huge help to cancer patients, who will be able to instantly access their personal data by providing the doctor with intermediate information about the effectiveness of treatment between hospital visits".

  • Internship of a student of the CIS department  according to the program of the Republic of Lithuania

Student Gladyr A.A. from September 1, 2018 to January 31, 2019 (5 months) had an internship under the program of the Republic of Lithuania at the University of Applied Sciences (Alytaus Kolegija), Alytus, Lithuania.
The program is similar to the Erasmus exchange program, but is funded by the Government of Lithuania and lasts for one semester (from September 1 to January 31). During the study, the student must receive 30 academic credits, which will be transferred to the home university. When applying, the student chooses the University of Lithuania and the disciplines he / she would like to attend (there should be a total of 30 academic credits), but the choice of subjects depends on the chosen university, as each university has its own list of subjects. Student Gladyr Anton has chosen:
 - PHP Programming;
 - Databases;
 - Basics of Programming;
 - Business English;
 - HTML Technologies;
 - Computer Graphics.
Classes for foreign students are held in English (however, if you have knowledge of the Lithuanian language, you can go to classes with Lithuanian students). The University of Applied Sciences has two buildings: the main one and the IT department. The buildings are new, have modern classrooms and laboratories.

In 2017, within the framework of the academic exchange program, Professor of the Computer and Information Systems Department  Huchenko M.I. completed an internship at the Institute of Technology and Business, České Budějovice, Czech Republic (http://www.vstecb.cz).
