We regret to announce that Martin Janžura passed away on August 2, 2016, aged 61. His research was centered around the statistics of Gibbs random fields. For many years, he served the Institute as a deputy director. Since 2011 he has been Editor-in-Chief of the journal Kybernetika. As an associated professor, he lectured at the Charles University and the Czech Technical University on various topics in statistics and information theory. He will be missed by his colleagues and students. In him, our institute has lost an original and notable character.

The Department of Adaptive Systems focuses predominantly on the design of decision-making systems, which modify their behavior according to the changing properties of their environment. This essential ability – adaptivity – enhances their efficiency. Decades of research have brought a number of conceptual, theoretical, algorithmic, software and application results. The applicability of adaptive systems is currently being extended toward complex scenarios by improving the classical adaptive systems and by developing their new versions.

The departmental “know-how” serves to resolve national as well as international research projects, running in collaboration with industry and government agencies. The interplay between theory and limited computing power is the common issue linking the various project domains. They include traffic control, management and control of technological systems, radiation protection, nuclear medicine, analysis of financial data, electronic democracy, etc. The increasing complexity of the problems addressed directs the main stream of the research toward decentralized control of large-scale systems and normative decision-making with multiple participants.
