About conference

The ICT Innovations conference series has established itself as an international forum for presenting scientific results related to innovative fundamental and applied research in ICT. The conference aims to bring together academics as well as industrial practitioners, to share their most recent research, practical solutions and experiences and to discuss the trends, opportunities and challenges in the field of computer science and engineering.

The conference will consist of regular sessions with technical contributions (regular papers) reviewed and selected by an international program committee, as well as invited talks presented by leading scientists. Different workshops will be held in line with the main conference. The official language of the conference will be English.

Keynote Speakers

One of the highlights of the upcoming ICT conference is the lineup of esteemed keynote speakers who will be sharing their insights and experiences on the latest trends and developments in the field.

BIOGRAPHY
Prof. Gesine Reinert is a Research Professor at the Department of Statistics, Oxford, and Fellow at Keble College, Oxford (2000 – present).  Her research interests cover network analysis and probabilistic approaches to machine learning, as well as approximations in probability and statistics. In 2015 she was elected Fellow of the IMS, and since 2016 she has been a Fellow of the Alan Turing Institute, the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence. Since 2020 she has been Editor-in-chief of the SpringerBriefs in Probability and Mathematical Statistics.

DETAILS
In modern dynamic, constantly developing society more and more people suffer from chronical and serious diseases. Accordingly, world renowned health big players and stakeholders have been recognized importance of development of appropriate services to help patients suffering from different kinds of diseases but also to old/desabled people in making their lifes bearable and easier. For such support collection of huge amounts of patient’s complex big data (like clinical, environmental, nutritional, everyday activities…) is needed. It is necessary to properly aggregate such data, analyze it and present to the doctors/caregivers to recommend adequate treatment and actions to improve patient’s health related factors and status. The intention of this presentation is to give a brief summary on modern approaches in gathering, processing, and using huge amounts of data in precision medicine influenced by powerful techniques and approaches of Artificial Intelligence, Data Mining and Machine Learning. Several typical cases and systems will be presented inspired by authors’ long-lasting experiences in using Artificial Intelligence methods in numerous applications including several medical areas.

DETAILS
The global pandemic has led to a ‘pivot’ to digital learning in many sectors of many countries, in schools, colleges and universities. My work with the UK Edtech Hub, British Council and Commonwealth of Learning suggests this response to the pandemic has been pedagogically conservative within those schools, colleges and universities, and furthermore may be increasing digital divides and educational disadvantage for those individuals, communities and cultures that are ignored, oppressed or poorly served by those schools, colleges and universities. My research explores in which innovative informal digital learning can help and support.

BIOGRAPHY

DETAILS
The pandemic has underlined some of the strengths of smart information systems (SIS), those systems that incorporate artificial intelligence techniques, in particular machine learning and big data analytics. These raise significant hopes, for example to better understand and cure diseases, but also to revolutionise transport, to optimise business processes or reduce carbon emissions. At the same time, they raise many ethical and social concerns, ranging from worries about biases and resulting discrimination to the distribution of socio-economic and political power and their impact on democracy.

Drawing on the findings of the SHERPA project (www.project-sherpa.eu), the presentation will suggest that one perspective to better understand these systems and their social and ethical consequences is to use the metaphor of an ecosystem to describe them, a metaphor already widely used in the policy discourse on AI. The talk will analyse what the use of the ecosystem metaphor means for the evaluation of ethical issues of smart information systems and which conclusions can be drawn from it and how these can inform recommendations for policymakers and other stakeholders.

Topics

In this post-covid year when we strive to fully normalize our lives, we are organizing the 15th ICT Innovations conference onsite with the title “Learning: Humans, Theory, Machines, and Data”
 
We invite scholars with different ideas and solutions that apply tools and techniques of information, communication and computer science and technologies to reshape the future. We expect to bring fresh insights in artificial intelligence, e-learning, blockchain technologies, e-commerce, healthcare, networks and communications, security, software systems, transportation and delivery and all other relevant sectors. Formal methods in computer science are base tools for development of the practical applications, so this year’s conference encourages papers in all fields of theory of computation.  

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following topic areas: 

  • Human-centered Artificial Intelligence
  • Education technology and e-learning
  • Human-Machine Interaction
  • Cognitive computing
  • Education in engineering
  • Data-Driven Modeling of Human Learning
  • Human-Machine Collaborative Learning
