Goran Trajkovski is an assistant professor of computer and information sciences and the director of the Cognitive Agency and Robotics Laboratory (CARoL) at Towson University (Towson, MD). He served on the faculty of West Virginia University (Parkersburg, WV) and SS Cyril and Methodius University (Skopje, Macedonia). He holds a bachelor’s degree in applied informatics, a master’s degree in mathematical and computer sciences, and a PhD degree in computer sciences from SS Cyril and Methodius University (Skopje, Macedonia). Trajkovski is also affiliated with the Institute for Interactivist Studies at Lehigh University (Bethlehem, PA), and a member of the organizing committee of the Interactivist Summer Institutes.

His work spans a wide range of computer science topics, and is of an interdisciplinary nature. His current research is focused on cognitive and developmental robotics, and emergent phenomena in the agents’ societies, especially concept formation and the emergence of language. Trajkovski’s upcoming book, An imitation-based approach to modeling homogenous agents societies (Idea Group Publishing, anticipated in July 2006), outlines his efforts in this area. His recent work has been supported by the National Science Foundation and the National Academy of Sciences, through a Twinning Grant.

He is chairing the 2006 fall symposium of the American Association for Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), will be held in October in Arlington, VA. It will cover interaction and emergent phenomena in societies of agents.

Facilitating student creativity is important to Trajkovski. CARoL is a unique place that enables numerous undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students to pursue their own research interests under his supervision. Their work has been featured in the media and at various conferences.

Throughout his 11 years in academia, he has been an advocate of the inclusion of diversity topics in the curriculum of the “diversity-unfriendly” disciplines (computer science, information technology, natural sciences, and mathematics). He has been on several panels on this topic, and chaired the 2004 Towson University Multicultural Conference, “Dimensions of Diversity.” His fourth book, Diversity in information technology education: issues and challenges (Information Science Publishing, January 2006) focuses on this subject.

  On integrating confidentiality and functionality in a formal method
Banks M., Jacob J.  Formal Aspects of Computing 26(5): 963-992, 2014. Type: Article

Miracles happen and are now formalized. Moreover, they can exist in formal methods where functionality and confidentiality of systems coexist in efforts to build secure systems by design. Functionality and confidentially have so far been irreconci...

   Answering regular path queries in expressive description logics via alternating tree-automata
Calvanese D., Eiter T., Ortiz M.  Information and Computation 23712-55, 2014. Type: Article

Description logic (DL) is a formal knowledge representation language family. It exhibits more efficient decision problems than first-order predicate logic, and is amply relevant to semantic web efforts. DL uses formal reasoning on the concepts of ...
