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.
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.
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.
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.
All over the world, digital tools are increasingly being used to improve and streamline healthcare services. This does not only lead to positive results, but also creates opportunities for new types of threats regarding information security and privacy. Information security and protection of privacy are some of the most important factors in the development of high-quality tools in the healthcare sector.
About one year from now the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect, so it is high time for businesses and organisations to start preparing. At Karlstad University, a cutting-edge international distance learning course is being developed on how to handle personal data according to the new regulation. “The new data protection regulation brings about significant changes in the way personal data is to be handled.
Jörg Lenhard, a postdoctoral research fellow in computer science, participated in the lecture series “Möt en forksare”. He talked about one of the meeting points between the fields of software engineering and biology: software evolution. During his lecture Jörg Lenhard described how and why software engineering researchers apply the term evolution and related biological concepts and what researchers hope to gain this way.
The Embedded-nätverket Värmland/Dalsland arranged a network seminar where Sebastian Herold, researcher in Computer Science at Karlstad University, presented the project REVaMP2 (Round-trip Engineering and Variability Management Platform and Process). REVaMP2 is a European collaboration with more than twenty partners from academia and industry.
Toke Høiland-Jørgensen, PhD student in Computer Science at Karlstad University, has developed an open-source tool to reduce latency in the internet. He has now been recognised by Google for his contributions to the open-source movement and the development of the internet. By its own account, Google depends on open source code and developers outside of the company.
Through the research profile HITS, High Quality Networked Services in a Mobile World, three students at Karlstad University have the opportunity to see their student projects become a reality as functionality in the systems of a niched technological company. The students Ricky Andersson, Filip Västlund and Sebastian Salomonsson are in the last semester of their studies towards a Masters degree in Computer Science at Karlstad University.
On 26 June – 30 June 2017, Karlstad University organises a summer school with a focus on the control and management of network traffic and latency linked to 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.
According to a study by computer science researchers at Karlstad University, few people know how their personal data are collected, used, shared and accessed. The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), coming into effect in 2018, will include higher demands on the possibility for users to access their own personal information. Within a year the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), will be applied.
From 1 January 2017, Reine Lundin has been the new Dean of the Faculty of Health, Science and Technology at Karlstad University, and has subsequently also taken the role as chairperson of the management group for the research profile HITS (high-quality network services in a mobile world). Together with five Swedish industrial companies and funded by the Knowledge Foundation Computer Science at Karlstad University continues developing the HITS research profile.
Today is the World Consumers Rights Day and Computer Science at Karlstad University will in terms of that acknowledge phising as a specific digital threat to consumers with a flyer for anti-Phising training. “Together with students and researchers at the Technische Universität Darmstadt we work to counteract phising.
On 13-14 February, Computer Science at Karlstad University co-organized ZEUS 2017, the 9th Central European Workshop on Services and their Composition. The workshop was held at and co-arranged with USI Lugano in Switzerland. “ZEUS is a very peculiar type of workshop. It is not attached to a conference, as is usual for scientific workshops, and involves no participation fees.
