The University of Ljubljana (UL) will host University Week from 27 November to 1 December 2023 - a week of festive events traditionally organised by UL to mark the anniversary of the oldest Slovenian university. On the occasion of the 104th anniversary of the University of Ljubljana, awards for the most outstanding research achievements, honorary degrees, plaques and prizes will be awarded to those who have made the University of Ljubljana a better university year after year. This year, University Week will mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of Josip Plemlj, the first rector of the University of Ljubljana: a documentary film prepared especially for this occasion will be screened at the Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television of the UL, and a small exhibition will be on display in front of the Rector's Office from 27 November onwards, presenting the life story of one of Slovenia's most important mathematicians and academics.

The stakeholders of the highest awards of the University of Ljubljana, who come from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, are:

  • Prof. Dr. Jaka Judge and Viš. sod. dr . Nadica Miljković, who received an award for the most excellent research achievements of the University of Ljubljana!

Colleagues from the Laboratory for Information Technologies at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering developed a method for automated assessment of the level of ability to drive patients with neurological problems. The ability to drive is determined using a simulated driving environment, in which the doctor subjects the patient to a series of tests to test sensomotor and cognitive functions. The new method is based on calculating time to view fixation (TTF), which is calculated based on view tracker data. The latter constantly records the point of view of the patient in the simulated driving environment. TTF represents the time interval between the moment a pre-selected stimulus appears in the field of view and the moment the person tested notices this stimulus and directs his gaze to it.

This scientific paper was published in the top-ranked journal in the field of mathematical and experimental psychology by Springer.
