You have probably noticed that an online video clip playing on your mobile phone is interrupted when you leave your house and the Wifi network. The mobile phone connects to 4G, and the video clip resumes. One advantage of multipath networks, which will be common in the future, is that your mobile phone will switch between different networks without you noticing it.
Javid Taheri, a professor of Computer Science at Karlstad University, has received the “Award for Excellence” by the IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC). He was presented with this award for his contributions on cloud computing and use of artificial intelligence to optimise highly distributed cloud-based scalable systems. “I’m very happy to receive this award.
When the Swedish Defence University and The Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) arranged the contest Cyber Challenge on Thursday, 6 February, 14 teams of university students vied to prove that they could act as the best experts on national security.
The anonymity network Tor, used daily by millions of users around the world, is important for people in vulnerable situations, for instance in order to avoid surveillance or control. Two Karlstad University researchers have now identified flaws in Tor’s anonymity function and contributed to technologies that make the network safer for users. The purpose of Tor is to allow users to surf the internet anonymously without information about visited webpages being registered.
Simon Sundberg, previously a student in the Computer Engineering Master programme, established contact with the HITS* company Icomera through the course Performance Modelling and Simulation during year four.
Cristian Hernandez Benet, doctoral student in Computer Science at Karlstad University, has been awarded the prize Best Paper Award at the IEEE CloudNet conference, a large international conference focused on cloud networks in Coimbra, Portugal, that took place 4-6 November. “The most prominent cloud network researchers in the world gather for this conference, so Cristian has received this prize in keen competition.
Researchers at Karlstad University have studied how apps’ access to our personal data has changed since the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was introduced in May 2018.
Cybersecurity concerns you, your work and your research - it is becoming increasingly important, and a sustainable society without cybersecurity does not exist. This was the main message when researcher and expert Fredrik Blix, Stockholm University and Cybercom, gave an open guest lecture at Karlstad University. On October 25, CTF, Service Research Center at Karlstad University, organized an open guest lecture with the researcher and cybersecurity expert Fredrik Blix.
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.
