ERIE 2012 Keynote Speaker I

Prof. Wei-Chi Yang

Professor Dr. Wei-Chi Yang currently is working at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Radford University, Virginia, USA. His original research was in theoretical Henstock and Kurzweil Integration. Thanks to Computer Algebra System, he has been experimenting the computational integration based on his theoretical background and making mathematics fun, accessible, challenging and theoretical through advancing technological tools.

Prof. Wei-Chi Yang founded the Asian Technology Conference in Mathematics (ATCM) in 1995, and the Electronic Journal of Mathematics and Technology (eJMT) was founded in 2007.


Professor Yang was the recipient of the 2009 Radford University Foundation Distinguished Creative Scholar Award. He was interviewed by; a TV Talk show of the official Web TV for the Ministry of Education in Malaysia on May 15, 2009. He talked about the reform of mathematics with technology in the East and the West. The video clip can be found in this link.

ERIE 2012 Keynote Speaker II

Assoc. Prof. Jana Talašová

Jana Talašová is an associated professor of Applied Mathematics at the Faculty of Science, Palacký University in Olomouc. Her research is focused on multiple criteria evaluation and decision making, applications of the fuzzy set theory and linguistic fuzzy modeling. She has developed a teoretical basis for software tools NEFRIT and FuzzME (fuzzy methods of multiple criteria evaluation). Recently, she has been engaged particularly in the use of mathematical models for multiple criteria evaluation in the area of higher education management (a model for academic staff performance evaluation, model for evaluation of creative work outcomes at Czech Art Colleges, analysis of the models for evaluation and funding of Czech Universities).

As the chairwoman of the Committee for Higher Education Institutions Quality and its Assessment (of the Council of Higher Education Institutions of the Czech Republic), she is involved in the process of transformation of Czech higher education.
