Presentation of public opinion as shaped within the context of Public Consultation

The presentation is related to the final work conducted within the framework of the educational process of the National School of Public Administration and focuses on the comments published in the Public Consultation of the draft legislation as well as the opportunities for export and visualization of information from them. More specifically classification methods and visualization toolς of the trends as shown by the expression of the citizens views are examined, using free software.

Public consultation using Web 2.0 technologies: The Greek case

In times of crisis, as the crisis of democracy that emerged the last decades, the internet and information and communication technology added their own impact in modern proposals for remedying the shortcomings of representative democracy. The purpose of this study is to examine the operation of the public consultation platform OpenGov, the efficiency with which it has been used until today, and the feasibility of using argument visualization tools for improving the quality of consultation.

Smart Antennas and Interference Mitigation Techniques in Cognitive Radio Networks

Smart antennas in the form of beam-forming, spatial multiplexing and MIMO have been widely used in wireless communication networks to enhance data rates, increase coverage and mitigate interference. Various communication standards such as WiMAX and LTE support the use of multiple antennas to enhance quality of transmission and reception of signals. As smart antennas exploit the spatial dimension to increase network capacity, this has been considered as a promising technique to meet ever increasing demand on radio spectrum.

From NOOTROPIA to NOOWIT: how a model became a minimum viable product

NOOWIT is an online magazine that adapts to a user's personal interests, the social trends and even to the browser's window. It is the result of more than ten years of research and development in the domain of Adaptive Information Filtering. NOOWIT is based on NOOTROPIA, a biologically-inspired model that can represent a user's (or a group's) multiple interests, it can continuously adapt to changes in them over time and can evaluate any type of information accordingly.

Research results exploitation under a new perspective: SciFY

The exploitation of research outcomes is now, perhaps more than ever, a necessity and an opportunity. We will discuss how an idea on cutting-edge scientific result exploitation has been built and is being implemented, under a crowd-funding perspective. We will comment on how this effort appears to flourish in a difficult socio-economic environment. We will describe how a new perspective for scientific result exploitation has paved the road to a variety of open and freely accessible products, based on such scientific domains as:
