FerFud travelling kitchen to visit Turistica

Category: Events

This year’s culinary theme of the FerFud project is BBQ. The charity BBQ tour will visit many Slovenian places and present the hot hits of Slovenian BBQ legends: HOOD BURGER, SORBARA STEAK HOUSE, HILLBILLY`S SMOKE HOUSE and POP’S PLACE. Through their creations and contributions of many FerFud fans, the project will raise funds for children involved in the “Sponsorship” project (Botrstvo: more information here).

The FerFud truck will visit Turistica as well. You will be able to try BBQ masterpieces in front of our faculty on Wednesday 23 May 2018 at 10.30 and until 14.30.

This is not the first visit of the FerFud travelling kitchen to Turistica. In May 2016 our students Martina Zamuda and Polona Lopert convinced the jury and won the FerFud competition 2016 with their culinary concept.

See you on Wednesday!


International Workshop: Non-commutative structures 2018

Category: Cooperation General

Between 23 and 27 May Turistica will host the international workshop  Non-commutative structures 2018 (NCS2018).
The workshop is organised by the SDAMS – Slovenian Discrete and Applied Mathematics Society together with UP FAMNIT, UP IAM, UP FTŠ, UL FMF and IMFM.
Workshop description:
Recently, non-commutative generalizations of lattices and related structures have seen an upsurge in interest, with new ideas and applications emerging, from quasilattices to skew Heyting algebras. Much of this activity derives in some way from the initiation, thirty years ago, by Jonathan Leech, of a research program into structures based on Pascual Jordan’s notion of a non-commutative lattice. The first workshop on non-commutative structures aims to present the breadth of contemporary research in the area, with contributions from international and Slovenian mathematicians. We are delighted that Jonathan Leech has accepted our invitation to deliver the keynote address in this meeting, which will hopefully be the first of many.
