On November 6-8 researchers from Karlstad University presented several papers connected to 5G and future network architecture. The rapid digitization we are experiencing right now demands extreme capacity from communication networks and to meet these demands new and more automated and flexible network architectures are needed. Expanding and implementing new functions and services for current networks is often expensive and demands a lot of resources.
For the second year running, Computer Science at Karlstad University organized a workshop for external input on the research environment. Computer Science staff presented the research environment to an International Advisory Board (IAB) that gave feedback on the development of the research group. In 2014, Computer Science was established as one of the two excellent research groups at Karlstad University.

The IT branch has a great need to recruit employees, and students on IT programmes therefore have good chances of finding attractive employment after finishing their studies. What is important to employees and how does that correspond to what the branch has to offer? On 21 September, a little more than 100 IT students and around 20 business representatives met for the annual IT dinner of the Snits network that links industry and IT students.
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.
You work mostly within the research profile HITS (High Quality Networked Services in a Mobile World). What is your part within the research profile? “The overall goal for the HITS, High Quality Networked Services in a Mobile World, research profile is to contribute to the development of high quality networked services for a mobile world through world-class research and industrial collaboration.
Cloud computing is considered as one of the major growth areas in ICT but a problem is the uncertainty when it comes to satisfactory approaches to adequately protect sensitive data.
