Student Club Inauguration

In April, an AFCEA student club was founded at the Academy of the Armed Forces; it is the first such club in the Slovak Republic. AFCEA International, as well as its branch in Slovakia, the Slovak Chapter, is focused on research, education and the use of information systems in intelligence, security and defense of the state. AFCEA creates a broader access to the latest information on technological progress and invites experts and institutions, which participate in the process of information technology penetration into the security forces, and also supports technical education and culture of the young generation of experts in information technology, telecommunications and electronics. The Slovak Chapter cooperates closely with the Department of Informatics at the Academy of the Armed Forces, which has supported the foundation of the student club. Present at the foundation ceremony was Petr Jirásek, regional vice president for Central Eastern Europe, who stated that the Slovak Republic has now become only the fourth country in Europe, after Greece, the Czech Republic and Romania, to have students so engaged in AFCEA activities. The foundation base of the AFCEA club in the Academy of the Armed Forces is made up of eight students in the second year of the study program on information systems, networks and services. Pvt. Jozef Kostelansk is the president of the club, and Miroslav Ďulk from the Department of Informatics is the faculty adviser. In addition, attendees of the inauguration included the rector, Brig. Gen. Boris Ďurkech, Air Force. He stated that the club, with its professional activities, would be a significant contribution for the future career development of students. Marcel Haraka, vice rector for science and an associate professor, added that the next event for the club is participation at the international scientific conference KIT 2013 (communication and information technologies), where they will meet other students from the AFCEA community. He added that club membership has provided space for students to participate actively at seminars, symposia, courses and member networking, and to engage in scientific projects, obtain grants and scholarships, communicate with the academic and scientific community around the world. Vladimr Ondrovič, president of the Slovak Chapter, welcomed new members to the club.
