Jacek Szamrej passed away

We are deeply saddened to inform you that, our colleague Jacek Szamrej died Oct. 13 from a heart attack. He was 61. Jacek was a long-time employee of the ISS.

At the University of Warsaw, Jacek Szamrej worked on computer models of social behavior. His model called “Nowak-Szamrej-Latane” is the most cited model in the Dynamical Social Impact Theory. Jacek helped bring the Internet to Poland and set up one of the first servers in Poland at the University of Warsaw. He created the first IT system for transactions on the Stock Exchange in a free Poland, and he also created the world’s first monitoring system in the power sector. He moved to the United States and started from zero, and built a successful career working in electric utilities and cybersecurity first in Vermont, and then in Georgia.
In our memory, Jacek was an invaluable computer man in ISS. In the times when the Internet was only a curiosity used mainly by the army and scientists, he showed us what the term “cybersecurity” means.

 

ISS to coordinate a research network supported by a NAWA grant

 

The ISS will coordinate the project received by the University of Warsaw from the National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA) under the Academic International Partnerships program.

On the part of the University of Warsaw, the Robert Zajonc Institute of Social Studies will be involved in building the network together with the Institute of Sociology.
