prof. Ing. Martin Klimo PhD. RB354 041/5134300
Martin Klimo received his diploma in telecommunication engineering from the University of Transport and Communication (UTC) Zilina in 1973. From 1973 to 1990 he was an Assistant Professor on Technical Cybernetics at UTC. Since 1990 he worked as Associated Professor and in 2005 he was appointed professor in Applied Informatics.
His research interests include communication theory, queuing theory and fuzzy logic implementation by nanotechnology. He focused to these disciplines from speech point of view: packet networks performance for voice transmission (VOIP quality), text-to-speech systems, and speech recognition. His actual interest is memristor based fuzzy computing. He participated in the projects: COPERNICUS #62, COST 242, COST257, EURESCOM P1112, COST 279 COST 290, VEGA 1-2039-5, and he was reviewer of the EURESCOM projects P603, P806-GI and P 906-GI. Now he participates in the project Scientific Park of Zilina University, APVV 14-0560 and COST MemoCIS IC1401. He participated in ETSI Speech Transmission Quality group, and he was the national delegate in ICT Committee FP7, actually in ICT Committee H2020.
His education interests include education in networking and communication theory. He participated on 3 TEMPUS projects e.g. “Master Degree Programme in Telecommunication Informatics”, Leonardo projects “European Computer Networking Licence Supported by E-learning”, and “HELEN - The European Learning Network”. He provides university courses in Networking theory, Communication theory and Principles of Informatics. His 15 PhD. students have been graduated.
He is author of 3 books, 32 journal articles and 52 other papers.
