On 9-11 October the yearly competition, European Cyber Security Challenge, was held and 20 teams of young cyber security talents from 20 European countries solved security-related problems. Simone Fischer-Hübner, professor of computer science at Karlstad University was a member of the jury. “There is a great need of more people working with IT related security problems,” says Simone Fischer-Hübner.
The launch of the 5G network is approaching and the expectations are great. Both individuals and businesses are looking forward to higher speed, minimal delays, and the possibility of handling a greater number of connected devices simultaneously. But how do we make optimal use of the potential offered by 5G technology?
Three scholarly articles written by researchers in Computer Science at Karlstad University have been accepted to IEEE CloudNet, a large international conference on cloud networks in Coimbra, Portugal. “It is unusual that a research group has three articles included in a conference at this level,”says Andreas Kassler, Professor of Computer Science.
Students, alumni, and representatives from local IT and technology businesses competed in the Karlstad Programming Contest on 5 October.
It is unusual for a Bachelor’s essay to be of such high quality that it qualifies for presentation in an international conference. But Jonatan Langlet, a Master’s student in Computer Engineering, has proven that it is possible.
Javid Taheri has been promoted to a professor. Through his promotion, Computer Science acquires even more scientific competence in cloud computing. Javid’s field of research includes, among other things, fog computing that is the next big paradigm in the computing world. Through fog computing, cloud services can be extended to the very edge of networks; this makes it ideal for applications that require real-time interactions.
This year’s SNITS dinner at Karlstad University was more than fully booked, not surprisingly since employment in the IT industry was on the table – a mouth-watering dish which tempted both businesses and students.

Is it possible to improve the performance of mobile data communication through a combination of technologies such as WiFi with 4G and 5G? This is what Stefan Alfredsson, senior lecturer in Computer Science, would like to find out in his research. It is hard to imagine life without a mobile phone. It is our primary access point to social media and the authorities and offers a constant link to entertainment, shopping, and important community services.
In Brazil, 63% of the population receives primary health care at home, and the introduction of digital aids has revolutionized healthcare.

Apps have become an important part of our lives. They guide us to the right address, tell us to exercise more, and provide us with information about other things that we need help with in our everyday lives. In order to be able to do so, they register where we are, what we say, and what we do. But can we really trust the apps with our personal information?
Mobile broadband gives 30% lower performance than normal broadband. This is shown in a new study presented by Karlstad researcher Mohammad Rajiullah at The Web Conference 2019, a top-ranked (A*) conference held on the 13th –17th May in San Francisco, USA. Smartphones and mobile broadband have revolutionised web use.
SQuaD (Software Quality and Digital Modernisation) is the new name of what used to be called SERG (the Software Engineering Research Group), one of the three research areas in Computer Science at Karlstad University. "We are, of course, still software engineers at heart.
Computer Science at Karlstad University is now recruiting four new doctoral students. Three of the projects are focused on the development of digital healthcare services and one on reinforcing the department’s work on cloud services. DigitalWell Arena is a large investment in the development of digital healthcare services.
Now there is a clear definition of internet access. Computer Science at Karlstad University was one of the participants in a project in which the Swedish Internet Foundation (IIS) and Netnod brought together service providers, technicians and other interested parties to define important terms so that they can be used consistently. "Today all our services rely on internet access.
