Public Symposium – The Reformation: Impacts and Consequences

It was 500 years ago that the Augustinian friar, Martin Luther, nailed his Ninety-Five Theses to the door of the Castle Church at Wittenberg, setting off a train of events that had far-reaching effects on most spheres of human activity. 

A Symposium 'The Reformation: Impacts and Consequences' organised by the Humanities, Medicine and Science Programme (HUMS) of the University of Malta will commemorate the anniversary of this critical turning point in European history. It brings to bear a variety of disciplinary perspectives on the natures, the contestations and the legacies of the Reformation. 

The event will be held on Wednesday 10 May 2017 at 6 pm at Valletta Campus, University of Malta, and is supported by the Faculty of Arts, the Faculty of Theology, the Augustinian Institute and the Malta University Historical Society

The Satellite Communications Summer School 2017

8-10 May 2017 

The Satellite Communications Summer School is organised by the University of Malta in collaboration with Satellite Network of Experts (SatNEx).

Satellite Communications Systems are used for a broad range of applications including broadcasting, mobility, broadband access and governmental services. Others like Machine-to-Machine (M2M) or Internet–of-Things are emerging. A family open standards (such as DVB-S and ETSI) has provided a significant stimulus especially in the areas of broadcasting and broadband access. This together with the technology development of the space and ground segments has greatly contributed to the evolving panorama of Satellite Communications.

Today, Satellite Communications is mostly dependent on geostationary satellites but a number of systems are being proposed employing non-geostationary orbits. As users become increasingly technology agnostic, the interaction with terrestrial services is also receiving considerable attention.

The School is intended for people with a sound background in Communication Systems who want to have a broad overview on Satellite Communications.

The Satellite Communications Summer School 2017 addresses applications, methodological advances and basic theory of Satellite Communications. We plan to touch the current schemes that are implemented covering applications, the space and the ground segments, regulatory aspects, standardisation activities, as well as the current state-of-the-art and future tendencies. The School technical programme consists of 9 short courses as well as 3 keynotes from renowned international professors and industry experts. Most courses will include close-to-real implementation results.

Lecture: Domestic Violence Interventions for Couples

Friday, 5 May 2017 

The Department of Family Studies within the Faculty for Social WellBeing at the University of Malta in collaboration with the Maltese Association for Family Therapy and Systemic Practice (MAFT – SP) announces a lecture on domestic violence interventions. 

Offering couples treatment for the problem of intimate partner violence (IPV) is a much debated issue. Yet recent research illustrates that carefully conceptualised and delivered couples treatment appears to be at least as effective as traditional individual treatment for IPV. The research project that will be reported here explores how intimate partner violence is addressed in couple therapy meetings. Also the use of different conversational practices, and analyse their effects on both partners’ experiences of treatment for IPV is examined. 

The Department of Family Studies in collaboration with MAFT – SP would like to invite academics as well as professionals in the areas of family therapy, psychotherapy, psychiatry, counselling, psychology, social work, health sciences and medicine to attend a seminar led by Prof. Juha Holma from the University of Jyväskylä, Finland Students in these areas at Master’s level are also welcome. 

The seminar will be held at the University of Malta Valletta Campus, Meeting Room 4 on ground floor and it shall run from 18:00 to 19:00.

Places are on a first come first served basis. To book for this seminar, kindly contact Ms Zvetlana Cassar or Ms Charlotte Busuttil via email
