AugerNext: R&D studies at the Pierre Auger Observatory for a next generation ground-based ultra-high energy cosmic-ray experiment
Marko Zavrtanik, Danilo Zavrtanik, Lili Yang, Serguei Vorobiov, Darko Veberič, Marta Trini, Samo Stanič, Ahmed Saleh, Gašper Kukec Mezek, Andrej Filipčič, Andreas Haungs, 2015, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: The findings so far of the Pierre Auger Observatory and those of the Telescope Array define some requirements for a possible next generation global cosmic ray observatory: it needs to be considerably increased in size, it needs enhanced sensitivity to composition, and it has to cover the full sky. At the Pierre Auger Observatory, AugerNext aims to conduct some innovative initial research studies on a design of a sophisticated hybrid detector fulfilling these demands. Within a European supported ASPERA/APPEC (Astroparticle Physics European Consortium) project for the years 2011-2014, such R&D studies primarily focused on the following areas: i) consolidation of the detection of cosmic rays using MHz radio antennas; ii) proof- of-principle of cosmic ray microwave detection; iii) test of the large-scale application of new generation photo sensors; iv) generalization of data communication techniques; and v) development of new schemes for muon detection with surface arrays. The AugerNext Consortium consists of 14 principal investigators from 9 countries. This contribution summarizes some achievements of the R&D studies within the AugerNext project.

Empirical Research: How to Improve Reception of Classical Poetry
Zoran Božič, 2015, original scientific article

Abstract: An empirical study of understanding The Baptism at the Savica showed that Slovenian high school students had notable difficulties in decoding the basic meanings of Prešeren’s poem. In literature, didactics offer three methods of facilitating reception of complex classical poetry: linguistic modernisation, addition of notes,and transmission into prose. Due to the cult status of Prešeren’s poetry, modernizations can only be limited, while commenting hinders a spontaneous reading experience; as a result, only prosification entirely solves the problems of pronounced archaization, inverted word order and abundant metaphors in Prešeren’s lines.This was confirmed by an empirical study in which high school students, who read the prozification together with the verses from The Baptism at the Savica, attested a comprehension which was twice as good as comprehension of students who only read the poetry.

Evaluation of France Prešeren's Poems
Zoran Božič, 2014, original scientific article

Abstract: The paper, referring to the school selection of Prešeren's poems, deals with the problem of evaluating Prešeren's poems. When selecting literary texts for secondary school reading books, the modern literature didactics recommend giving priority to the principles of reception and literary history. A study of the evaluation criteria of three leading experts on Prešeren from the second half of the 20th century brings recognition that, in spite of significant differences between them, literary historians, above all, value formally complex and receptively demanding poems belonging to the central period of Prešeren's romanticism. Although the influence of literary-historical principle is also noticed in secondary school students, these attribute the most value to Prešeren's poems with simple forms and less demanding reception, predominantly those that have a story, are easier to understand and provide a complete experience.

Brand introduction on the Slovenian market: case study Gurieli tea
Mariam Parekhelashvili, 2016, master's thesis

Abstract: Human beings have always tried to create new, innovative things so as to gain profit out of them. Companies which are following the human beings nature strive to satisfy customers’ demand for high-quality products and services. Developing a new product is always a complex and experimental process. The process of introducing new products to an international market is as risky as it is vital for the long-term success of many companies. The number of new products introduced globally is increasing every year, but great majority of them fail. The main purpose of this thesis is to develop an effective marketing plan for the new product introduction to an international market - a successful launch of the Georgian Gurieli tea to the Slovenian market. Market research gave us a business view of the tea industry on the Slovenian market. By means of secondary research and market analysis, we identified potential customers, understood market conditions and competitive landscape. The main steps of proposed marketing strategy are segmentation, targeting and successful positioning (STP). STP focuses on commercial effectiveness, selecting the most valuable segments of the Slovenian market and developing the marketing mix and product positioning strategy for each recognized segment. Planned implementation of a subtle advertising campaign for the Gurieli tea would be a vital component of the strategy - through an innovative marketing communication mix the product would be successfully introduced and promoted to target customers.

Under All the Hats of Quality —- from a round table discussion among teachers, students, quality experts, policy makers…
Peter Purg, Potokar Urša B., 2016, scientific or documentary film, sound or video publication

Abstract: This 54-minute full feature documentary and research film features, in a unique intermedia manner, the findings of a round table, conceived and moderated by dr. pETER Purg; at the "Quality of University Teaching and Learning" international conference, Brdo pri Kranju in April 6, 2016. This video (directed and shot by P. Purg, and edited by Urša .B. Potokar) presents the issues emerging from a round table discussion among teachers, students, quality experts and policy makers from different disciplines and countries. As a "mixed media publication", It links in with an academic article (to be) published after the conference by P. Purg, discussing the selected utterances as evidence of emerging topics in academic quality, set against a broader theoretical and policy-related argumentation. Such a mixed-media multi-layered interplay of theory and practice, between text and video, may prove that an open discussion, paired with (audio-visual) self-reflection can both articulate and confirm some crucial commitments for increasing the quality of teaching and learning. The round-table participants mostly agreed academic quality is dependent on teaching and learning quality, while academic practice is moving towards student autonomy and agency. For that both the national and the institutional legislative framework should provide a suitable scaffolding, facilitating better progression through education stages and sustainable student-to-teacher ratios. Good contact with the employment sector remains a key challenge that affects education quality, confirming the need for a wider participation of all higher education stakeholders.

W OMEN W RITERS D ATABASE AND VIRTUAL RESEARCH ENVIRONMENT BEYOND THE CURRICULA OF LITERARY SCHOLARSHIP
Narvika Bovcon, Aleš Vaupotič, 2017, published scientific conference contribution abstract

Abstract: The study of informatics typically includes information visualization and the rhetoric of user interface. Such courses are expanding the core computer science curricula towards multimedia communication design. However, to practice visualization on datasets in a non-focused way may diminish the quality of educational effect as well as the quality of the results of students' projects. A collaboration with domain experts has proven to be very beneficial by involving students in various research projects and platforms. The students of informatics at the Faculty of Computer and Information Science, University of Ljubljana, have touched upon humanities projects in different special domains: the datasets provided by Institute of Contemporary History (INZ, Ljubljana), interface design for electronic scholarly editions based on TEI XML files, documentation of new media art exhibitions, and others. As noted by some contributors in A New Companion to Digital Humanities (2016) with relevance to the latter aspect of interdisciplinary contact, the domain of new media art constitutes an essential inspiration for the study of digital humanities methods and approaches. In the second part of the paper, the multi-year collaboration between the University of Nova Gorica and University of Ljubljana computer-science curricula will be presented. The WomenWriters database, as well as subsequently the NEWW VRE, has been used in different models of interdisciplinary collaboration.

REVITALISATION OF RUINS AND THE IMPACT ON CONSERVATION POLICIES IN SLOVENIA. CASE STUDY OF THE CARTHUSIAN MONASTERY AT ŽIČE, SLOVENIA
Mateja Golež, 2019, doctoral dissertation

Abstract: The doctoral dissertation in question presents in detail the issue of protecting architectural heritage as ruins on the example of the Žiče Charterhouse complex in Slovenia. The author based her work on the history of conservation, internationally applicable charters related to architectural heritage protection and on examples taken from international conservation practice. Although the Slovenian conservation profession, as an independent technical and scientific discipline, received its formal legal status through the emergence of independent Slovenia merely a couple of decades ago, it is possible to claim that Slovenia, with its first academically qualified conservation specialists Avguštin Stegenšek and France Stele, was in contact with active policy on heritage protection as early as before World War I, when the Slovenian territory was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and also after the War, when the territory was annexed to the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. Despite long-standing efforts, Slovenians did not achieve the legal protection of architectural heritage until early 1980s, when an independent act on the protection of natural and cultural heritage was adopted in former Yugoslavia. Because of this, the tasks carried out by conservation specialists until that time primarily focused on documenting heritage and carrying out the most pressing maintenance works. Since all major international charters related to cultural heritage protection were signed when Slovenia was part of former Yugoslavia and after it became independent, it is not possible to claim that the profession did not follow the international legal order in this field. This is why it is sometimes difficult to understand the large gap between international technical criteria and the conservation decisions made by Slovenian conservation experts when performing intervention works on structures or sites of cultural value in Slovenia. To improve this condition, it is therefore vital that buildings be treated comprehensively prior to interventions, including in terms of carrying out natural science and technical research studies that provide an insight into the materials, structural frame and building physics of a building, as shown in the doctoral dissertation on the example of the ruin of the Church of St. John the Baptist at Žiče Charterhouse. Only by carefully analysing historic materials, it is possible to make the right decision on the use of adequate substitute materials for the needs of maintaining a ruin and, only on the basis of preliminary research made into structural frames, it will be possible to monitor the vitality of ruins in future, whereby using state-of-the-art research methods from conservation science. Since the Church of St. John the Baptist has lost its original intended use and also the possibility to get it back, the author of the dissertation proposes that the structure not be reconstructed, since this would imply a major deviation from original architecture, with a shortage of adequate documentation that would provide a basis for credible reconstruction. For this reason, the author of the doctoral dissertation defends the position that the Church be protected as a ruin. The operator of the monastery complex and the entire valley of St. John, where the remains of the lower and upper monastic houses of the Žiče Charterhouse are located, now faces quite a challenging task. It will have to prepare a management plan that will foresee expert bases for sustainable use of natural and cultural values of this site and a suitable development policy, whereby giving the key role to the local community.
