The different stages of a festival's evolution provide a plethora of opportunities for us to better understand our culture, the relationships we build, what we value in our culture and our communities, and how we socialize and interact with one another. Managing and Developing Community Festivals and Events brings together community festival and event research from nine different countries. It critically explores how festivals and their communities develop and impact upon one another. The chapters focus on a wide range of festivals such as food and culinary festivals, art events, religious pilgrimage and feast festivals, as well as a variety of diverse themes such as joy, civil unrest, preservation of cultures and authenticity.
The article elaborates a method for estimating the probabilities of occurrence of prognosticated events in future. On the basis of the data from the previous periods about prognosticating the relevant events, as well as the data about the trends observed at present, two matrices are formed, the product of which is the matrix for the prognosis errors committed by the individual or the expert. The article shows that the vector for probabilities of the prognosticated events is the eigenvector of the prognosis error matrix, which corresponds to its single eigenvalue. Application of the elaborated method is shown on the definite example for forecasting demand of new products
Monografija apima visą Rusijos istoriją – nuo seniausių laikų iki šių dienų. Autorius pasirinko gana originalų medžiagos pateikimo būdą: skyriais „datos“, „žmonės“, „įvykiai“. Skyriuje „datos“ pagrindinis dėmesys teikiamas įvykių chronologijai, skyriuje „žmonės“ vaizdžiai aprašomi istorinių asmenybių charakterio bruožai ir pristatomi jų nuopelnai, o skyriuje „įvykiai“ apmąstoma Rusijai ar net visam pasauliui svarbių istorijos lūžių reikšmė. Objektyviai nušviečiama naujoji Rusijos istorija, ypač sovietinis laikotarpis.
The book has an original structure. Along with chronological exposition of events, it puts them into three rubrics: Personalities, Events, Dates. Each page is devoted to a certain historical event, known person or remarkable day. The work covers main directions of Russian history and presents its dynamics.
This paper addresses the issue of public cultural services management by the example of event organization in cultural institutions. The Night of Museums event has been held annually in St. Petersburg and attracted more than 100 000 visitors for its fifth edition in 2012. A multistage study on this event has been organized aiming at exploring the potential of the large-scale event in development of public cultural services management both from the side of audience and cultural entities. The findings of the study indicate audience development within the event, implementation of innovative solutions through application of creative methods by cultural institutions and develop recommendations for effective provision of public cultural services.
Event logs collected by modern information and technical systems usually contain enough data for automated process models discovery. A variety of algorithms was developed for process models discovery, conformance checking, log to model alignment, comparison of process models, etc., nevertheless a quick analysis of ad-hoc selected parts of a journal still have not get a full-fledged implementation. This paper describes an ROLAP-based method of multidimensional event logs storage for process mining. The result of the analysis of the journal is visualized as directed graph representing the union of all possible event sequences, ranked by their occurrence probability. Our implementation allows the analyst to discover process models for sublogs defined by ad-hoc selection of criteria and value of occurrence probability
