Northern Lights Deep Learning Conference 2024

Tildelt: kr 99 999

The conference is non-profit and will be organized at UiT The Arctic University of Norway. The team has previously organised SCIA 2017, and NLDL 2018/2019/2020/2021/2022/2023, which received support for the events from NFR and were successes. The group has several projects ongoing related to ICT and this conference will benefit those projects. The conference program will consist of presentations and poster sessions, where participants can present recent and ongoing work. Participants that would like to present their work have submitted a two-page abstract or a full six-page paper. Full papers are published in the NLDL proceedings (Level 1 in the Norwegian system). Additionally, there will be a panel discussion, where issues and recent developments in the field will be discussed, as well as dedicated events for "Industry in AI" and "Diversity in AI". We have invited 4 high-profile keynote speakers. This will contribute to the quality and also increase the visibility of the conference. We will use the conference organizing company Xtenso AS, who will provide help with setting up registration. We expect 250 participants this year. Expenses for the keynote speakers as well as lunch and dinner for the physical participants will be covered. This results in an overall direct cost of 555 KNOK (see budget below). To cover costs, UiT The Arctic University of Norway contributes with 55KNOK (50 hours at an hourly rate of 1100,- NOK) of Kampffmeyer’s and Jenssen's salary. Additionally, 74 KNOK internal funding and 80 KNOK from industrial sponsors will be used to organize the conference in 2024. Budgeting for 250 participants, this means that we estimate a deficit of 100 KNOK and we hope that with help of 100 KNOK from NFR we will be able to roughly break-even.
