Dalla collaborazione tra Spoke 3 e Spoke 4 nasce il corso di alta formazione: I principi generali del bilancio per le strutture alberghiere e le imprese turistiche
Dalla collaborazione tra Spoke 3 - Industria del Turismo e della Cultura e Spoke 4 - Montagna Digitale e Sostenibile, nasce un nuovo corso di alta formazione dal titolo: I principi generali del bilancio per le strutture alberghiere e le imprese turistiche. Il corso si propone di fornire strumenti e conoscenze ad aziende e professionisti che operano nel campo del turismo.   Il corso, con un taglio manageriale, è rivolto a coloro che hanno la necessità di conoscere le logiche e la struttura del bilancio d’esercizio con particolare riferimento alle voci tipiche delle imprese ricettive. Nella prima parte del corso si analizzeranno i principi generali concernenti la redazione del bilancio aziendale, gli schemi e il contenuto dello stato patrimoniale e del conto economico, con una focalizzazione sugli aspetti maggiormente attinenti alle imprese di minori dimensioni.   Nella seconda parte, si farà ricorso ad un'esercitazione pratica dove verranno riprese le operazioni di gestione tipiche e si analizzerà il loro effetto sul bilancio. Inoltre, durante il corso verrà spiegato come utilizzare il bilancio riclassificato come strumento per prendere decisioni anche in una logica di digitalizzazione e sostenibilità.    Il corso si terrà in presenza dal 09/05/2024 al 16/05/2024.

25th Workshop "From Objects to Agents" (WOA 2024)
WOA “From Objects to Agents” is an international workshop in the IT field which, every year, serves as a forum for Italian and international researchers and professionals working on all aspects of intelligent agents and multi-agent systems (MAS). The conference has reached its 25th edition, which will be celebrated in 2024, at the Forte di Bard (AO) from 7 to 10 July 2024. It is an event typically appreciated by young researchers for its constructive and interactive environment. Multi-agent systems are computing structures composed of multiple autonomous agents that interact with each other and with their surroundings to achieve specific objectives.   Following the considerable interest that all aspects of Artificial Intelligence (AI) are recently obtaining, and the specific relevance of the topic also within the “Smart West” flagship project, as part of the NODES – Spoke 4 project, the 2024 edition of the workshop will focus on the theme Smart and Agile Agent Technologies for a Sustainable Model of Distributed Working.   Specifically, the COVID-19 pandemic has acted as an accelerator in the digitalization process of small-medium enterprises and public administrations, promoting new forms of hybrid/remote work. This requires the design and implementation of new processes and adequate technological infrastructures to address new challenges, including, but not limited to, the transformation of leadership and control, the shift towards a goal-oriented work organization (due of a reduction in the difference between employed and self-employed workers), the reduction of informal in-person interactions, the need for support to find an adequate work/life balance, the worker's well-being, his safety, and his lifelong learning. The systems and technologies developed in the field of agents and multi-agent systems can provide fundamental support in creating a new and sustainable working model at multiple levels: economic, but also technological, environmental and social, with particular reference to the peculiarities of mountain territories.   During the workshop, thematic sessions will be organized (keynote talks, panel discussions) specifically focused on the challenges of remote/hybrid working in a mountain environment, and on the solutions made available by research on agents and multi-agent systems. There will also be a moment of discussion with local stakeholders, in order to involve them and identify which technological tools can best respond to their needs.   Among the topics of interest identified for this edition it is possible to highlight:      Agent-oriented software engineering      Agents and sensor networks      Agent-based modeling and simulation      Business process management      Compliance      Hardware and software infrastructures for agents and multi-agent systems      Industrial applications of agents and MAS      Next generation socio-technical systems      Agent-based enabling technologies      Intelligent tools and devices for smart collaboration      AI-supported models and tools for remote working      Digital and Sustainable Mountain      Multi-agent systems for remote working in mountainous territories
