November 25 @ 09:00 - November 27 @ 16:00

University of Bergen will arrange Norwegian Conference for ICT Research and Education (NIKT) from 25.-27. November 2024 in Bergen. NIKT is an important national meeting place for researchers, teachers, masters and PhD students in information and communication technology, computer science, information science and information systems. A conference for ICT-researchers in Norway bringing together people from the following fields:

The conference is hosted by Department of Information Science and Media Studies at Faculty of Social Science, University of Bergen and funded by SFI MediaFutures and SLATE.

The academic content of the conference will consist of a number of peer reviewed articles that present new research, supplemented by the contributions of four invited speakers on current topics in ICT research, innovation and education. In addition, held in conjunction with the conference, there will be a meeting of the national ICT fagråd as well as a number of thematic workshops and lightning-talk poster presentations.

One of the three keynote speakers will be Björn Þór Jónsson, Associate Professor, CRESS, at the Department of Computer Science in Reykjavik University.

Björn Þór is working within the broad field of Multimedia Analytics, applying Multi-Dimensional Analysis concepts and techniques to multimedia. A strong focus is on interactive learning at scale, resulting in the Exquisitor prototype, which can interact with a collection of 100M images in real-time on a standard laptop. Over the last decade, his research has focused primarily on the performance of very large scale content based multimedia retrieval. This research has led to the traditional international publications and graduate degrees, but also to two patent applications and a start-up company, Videntifier Technologies. He has taught classes on the database design and implementation, the architecture and performance of database systems, the architecture and performance of SSDs, big data management, and on advanced database systems, such as multimedia systems, stream query processing and database client caching.

The second keynote speaker is Per Thorsheim.

With close to 30 years of experience in information security, he is a passionate and knowledgeable leader in this area. His core competencies include operational security management, policy development and implementation, hardening and security patch management, defence in depth, risk analysis, awareness training, and incident handling. He also has a strong interest and expertise in passwords and password research, having founded and organized the first and only conference dedicated to passwords and digital authentication: #PasswordsCon. Per is a frequent speaker, writer & media commentator on security-related topics, and is currently holding the CISA and CRISC credentials from ISACA.
There will be 2 more keynote speakers in the conference.
