NIK 2013 in Stavanger - Call for papers

Deadline: July 12th

NIK is an established series of Norwegian conferences on research and advanced development in computer science. NIK 2013 is organized by the University of Stavanger, and takes place in Stavanger 18-20 November at Rica Forum hotel. NIK 2013 is co-located with NOKOBIT and NISK.

NIK invites submissions in a broad range of topics related to computer science: full papers for ongoing research or final results (12 pages), short papers for early stage research (4 pages). Authors are encouraged to motivate and present their papers for a broad computer science audience. All papers will be peer reviewed. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by Akademika Forlag under its own ISSN, which is approved as a scientific publication channel at level 1.

NIK 2013 will accept a limited number of undergraduate student papers, and therefore invites submission of full and short papers documenting bachelor and master student work. Up to four accepted student papers will receive financial support in terms of waived conference fee.

NIK is interested in organizing tutorials and workshop on the first day of the conference (November 18th) and invites submissions of workshop and tutorial proposals. The proposals should include the workshop or tutorial title, list of organizers, a short description of the topic, and the estimated number of participants.

Papers can be in Norwegian or English (or any Scandinavian language) and accepted papers must be presented at the conference. All papers will be peer-reviewed and accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published by Tapir. All submitted papers must present original work and should not have been published elsewhere. LaTeX and Word templates are available at

Papers for NIK can be submitted through

NIK encourages the submission of papers addressing education and learning in computer science. These contributions can be of a slightly more practical nature that the typical scientific paper. NIK wishes to become more attractive as a meeting place for computer science teachers, and hope for many submissions of papers addressing original and creative educational activities in courses and study programs.
