    Best Paper award on a top ranked conference

    Computer Science researchers at Karlstad University received Best Paper award at the top ranked research conference ISD, Information Systems Development 2017. The paper concerns users’ perspectives on a cloud-based personal identity management and it is connected to the CREDENTIAL project which Karlstad University is involved.

    “I was surprised when they announced our paper as the winner of the award but I was also very happy, of course. We have put a lot of efforts into user studies and it feels good that the content of our paper is appreciated”, says Farzaneh Karegar, PhD student within Computer Science at Karlstad University and the main author of the paper.

    Future network services in multiple cloud-based environments

    Internet services are becoming a greater part of our daily lives and the more complex the service, the higher the demands placed on the systems and networks behind the services. During this week, 26-30 June, Computer Science at Karlstad University arranged the ACRO 2017 summer school that focused on the control and management of network traffic and latency linked to future network services in multiple cloud-based environments.

    ”The development of network services is moving towards virtualisation and multiple cloud-based environments. This means that more and more services are linked through functions in many different systems and that large volume of data are transported between the systems,” says Andreas Kassler, professor in computer science and one of the summer school organisers.

    PhD student on international Exchange in Tokyo

    Ricardo Santos, research student in computer science at Karlstad University, is one of few PhD students in Sweden offered a part in JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) summer program and the opportunity to do a research exchange in Tokyo. During two months, starting in the beginning of June, Ricardo is located in Tokyo, working together with research colleges at Tokyo Institute of Technology.

    Data transfer in mobile networks
    Ricardo Santos work is about optimizing new ways of transporting huge amounts of data within mobile networks. The increasingly amount of data that needs to be transported through mobile networks demands new solutions. Ricardo’s research focus on using wireless networks that operate in high frequencies as a mean of communication for huge amounts of data, though but is highly sensitive to interference and blockage.

    Best Demo Award at IFIP Networking

    The NEAT project won the Best Demo Award at the IFIP Networking conference, in Stockholm (June 12-15, 2017). The Demo was presented by Zdravko Bozakov (Dell EMC) on behalf of all the authors.

    The demo, titled "A NEAT framework for application-awareness in SDN environments", is joint work from KaU and Dell EMC illustrating how NEAT can be integrated in an SDN scenario. The demo shows how, by enabling the OpenDaylight SDN controller to interact with NEAT, policies and path information can be distributed to NEAT-enabled end-hosts to improve the handling of both bulk and latency-sensitive flows."

    The impact of GDPR in higher education

    Associate professor Lothar Fritsch (Karlstad University) will hold a tutorial on privacy compliance at the ImperialCollege in London.

    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect in May 2018 and will introduce a regulatory framework of new data protection rights for EU citizens. This one-day conference is tailored towards higher education professionals.

    Experts from HE, privacy law and technology will explain how institutions need to change their data policy and will provide examples of best practice.


Paper within @CREDENTIAL project by phd student @farzkare won the best paper award at the #ISD2017 conference -
