The new academic year of 2014/2015 successfully began with a good work atmosphere. We are proud to share valuable information on success of the academic team of the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences (FENS).

Prof. Dr.  Fuat Gürcan, Dean of FENS,  has been invited as Invited Author in Two Conferences:  First: 12th International Conference on Fluid Mechanics & Aerodynamics (FMA '14) Geneva  December 29-31, 2014 . and second: in Istanbul. Prof. Dr  Fuat Gürcan also published two research papers in two highly respected journals; 

1.  Chaos, Solitons and Fractals (SCI), vol 68, 169-179  and  2.  Mathematical Methods in Applied Sciences (SCI), DOI:10.1002/mma.3196. 

Assoc.Prof. Dr. Izudin Dzafić’s seven papers have been accepted to be published in highly respected journals: IEEE Trans. Power Syst., vol. PP, no. 99, pp. 1–8, ; IEEE Trans. Smart Grid, vol. PP, no. 99, pp. 1–10 ; ,” IEEE Trans. Power Syst., pp. 1–8 ; Electric Power Systems Research, vol. 119, pp. 237–246 ; IEEE Trans. Power Syst., vol. 29, no. 3, pp. 1419–1428 ; IEEE Trans. Power Syst., vol. 29, no. 1, pp. 193–202, ; IEEE Trans. Power Syst., vol. 28, no. 4, pp. 4839–4848 ( all indexed by SCI). 

Assist. Prof. Dr. Muhamed Hadžiabdić’s two papers have been accepted to be published in highly respected journals International Journal of Heat and Fluid Flows (SCI) and Flow Turbulence and Combustions (SCI). 

Emeritus Professor Mehmet Can and Assist. Prof. Dr. Ali Osman Kusakci published a paper in highly respected journal (SCI), title: An adaptive evolution strategy for constrained optimisation problems in engineering design, Journal: Int. J. of Bio-Inspired Computation, 2014 Vol.6, No.3, pp.175 - 191(SCI). 

Emeritus Professor Harry Miller and Assist. Prof. Dr. Leila Miller-Van Wieren get a their joint paper which has been accepted for publication in Hacettepe J Math Stat. (SCI), titled: "Some Statistical Cluster Point Theorems". 

Prof. Dr. Migdat Hodžić and Assist. Prof. Dr. Emir Karamehmedović has been rewarded by Malmo and Boras Universities, in Sweden. During their visit they concluded agreement on Academic and industrial cooperation related to renewable energy. Next step is for our Swedish hosts come to visit IUS (early 2015) and go to the next step in cooperation. Prof. Dr. Migdat Hodzić’s paper has been also accepted at Budapest Complex Systems Conference, early November  with Title:  New Approach to Complex Ecological Dynamic System Analysis and Modeling. 

Asst. Prof. Dr. Mirza Suljagić has been selected by the IPA Adriatic Cross-border Cooperation to participate in Managerial Skill Development for Researchers program (MBSDr), among researchers from Bosnia and Herzegovina. The program is part of the Pacinno initiative, funded by the EU to promote innovation and technology transfer throughout the Adriatic region. The top 16 candidates form the Adriatic region for the MBSDr program will include 2 participants from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Montenegro, Serbia, and Slovenia. 

As part of the Short Term Scientific Mission (COST Action IC1005, European Cooperation in Science and Technology) Senior Assist. Kanita Hadžiabdić has been awarded by Bangor University, UK, where she has worked for a week (between 10.11.2014 and 14.11.2014) on a research project related to high dynamic range imaging. 

At the 20th Conference of the International Federation of Operational Research Societies (IFORS 2014) held from held from 13-18 July 2014 in Barcelona, Assoc. Professor Haris Gavranovic at FENS, together with PhD student Mirsad Buljubašić and Professor Michel Vasquez from Nimes, France and Professor Said Hanafi from Vallenciennes, France won two EURO/ROADEF/SNCF awards, First prize and Sprint 2 winner prize, for the Best solution for Rolling Stock Unit Management on Railways sites problem proposed by SNCF and ROADEF. The algorithm designed by Franco/Bosnian team has shown by far the best results in the competition among 36 teams from 20 countries from all around the world. 

Asiss. Professor Dr.  Jasminka Hasić-Telalović has been invited to the Program Committee of the Eurographics conference.  The papers of this conference are published at Computer Graphics Forum which is a highly valued journal. Asisst. Prof. Dr. Abdurazzag Ali Aburas have been invited as a Distinguished Speaker for the Global Engineering Education at the IEOM 2015 Dubai Conference. Asisst. Professor Dr. Işıl Ekin Calak appointed as a jury member in Istanbul Design Biennial.
