Organiser: Huszár Zsuzsa Réka | Format: in-person | Room:  C IX. | Language: English

Description: Presentation aims to provide an interactive discussion for finding impactful research question in finance or applied economics. Probably 80% percent of research papers submitted to top (D1) journals get rejected because of the lack of contribution. The common mistake among junior faculty is a “search for research gap”, often wanting to justify to editors what they are doing is relevan, connected to outstanding research. However, excessive justification could undermine the contribution of the research. It is always useful to have a target audience. I present three examples of how my coauthors found great  research questions in three areas: investment, household finance, and energy finance. Two of the papers presented have been already widely cited not only in academia but also in policy discussion forums by the US housing committee at the US Senate, and by the European Securities Markets Authority (ESMA) and the SEC, as well as professionals.

11 June (Tuesday)

Organiser: Baranyi Péter | Format: in-person | Room: C X. | Language: English

Description: The reluctance to adopt AI solutions in control systems lies in the fact that AI systems derive their knowledge and outputs from experiential learning, which constitutes “soft” knowledge. In control systems, reliance on experiential evaluation for demonstrating global stability and control performance is not acceptable. What is required instead is a precise, tractable and verifiable proof that the control strategy ensures system stability under all conditions. Therefore, the lecture focuses on how to integrate Linear Matrix Inequality based control design and analysis into AI frameworks, enabling the rigorous mathematical verification of stability and performance metrics for AI-controlled systems. 

Organiser: Tim Gittins | Format: hybrid | Room: C IX. | Language: English

Description: This session will focus on smartphone research conducted with Roma individuals in 2023. On the basis of previous anthropological research we aimed to assess the extent of municipal bulky waste collected in lomtalanitás by informal Roma collectors. This was perfomed by smarthones recording sizes of waste piles and the frequency of transporation of waste material for further use. The method is experimental and as such subject to refinement.

12 June (Wednesday)

Organiser: Köves Alexandra | Format: in-person | Room:  C X. | Language: English

Description: Today everything is green. Or at least should be. However, aiming for sustainability means highly different directions for different actors. It is not only the definition of sustainability that is highly contested but what we should do about it. This presentation attempts to provide an overview of these different shades of green trying to facilitate the understanding of the cacophony in proposed and implemented “solutions”. From the light green of market solutions, through the grass green of institutional solutions to the deep green of radical demands, we will see how these concepts evolve and the rationale behind them.

Organiser: Nuno Morgado | Format: in-person | Room:  C V. | Language: English

Description: China’s rise as a great power awakes an interest to study its identity. This presentation explores China’s ambitions to a great power status in the 21st century, delving into the country’s important role within the international system.

We trace the origins of China’s ambitions in its strategic culture and system of ideas and representations, through the lens of China’s historical and cultural context, forming a geopolitical study. We pay a particular attention to the concepts of ‘middle’, ‘Middle Kingdom’, and Tianxia. ‘Middle’ symbolizes China’s centrality and moral authority, ‘Middle Kingdom’ embodies the idea of a state, where the political power is concentrated, and Tianxia represents China’s historical visions of the global order.
Our results show that China’s traditional views suggest ambitions for a leading status in the international chessboard, which is confirmed by China’s ongoing multiple efforts to reshape the international system as empirical evidence.

Description: “If it bleeds, it leads” – one of the famous mottos of news production captures the inseparable connection between violence and the news genre. The news media are the primary source of information on complex matters, such as the violent acts that the session covers. Not only do the media select the issues they report on, but they also choose the ways in which to do so, which is central to the concept of framing. One of the most powerful framing tools are pictures. However, while reports on violent acts appear daily, restrictions on their explicit visual depiction make the framing mechanisms of violence in online visual discourse less clear. Thus, the question arises: which motifs substitute explicit violence on images accompanying news articles? The session presents a theoretical and practical framework that reveals how reports of violence are illustrated in such restricted circumstances, with a special focus on contemporary cases in the age of the “homo videns”, the man who watches and is informed by images (Sartori, 1997).
