NIK Keynote: Developing for the long term - Lessons learned through 20 years of Qt
by Dr. Lars Knoll
Qt is a C++ based development framework originally created by a Norwegian startup named Trolltech. After some years where Nokia owned the technology, it is now being developed by an independent company again. Through all the changes on the business side, we have continued to evolve the product and keep it relevant in the market. Some of the guiding principles established in the early years such as a strong focus on API design and quality, a will to continuously re-invent our product and our cooperation with the Open Source community have made this possible.
Lars is The Qt Company CTO and Qt Project Chief Maintainer.
He has been working on Qt for more than 18 years starting as a software engineer to later leading the global Qt engineering team in Nokia before the Digia acquisition in October 2012. Lars has been an active member of the KDE community and the architect behind KDE’s HTML rendering library that formed the basis for the WebKit open source project.
Lars holds a PhD in physics from the University of Heidelberg. He is a German national and lives with his family in Oslo.
UDIT Keynote: Learning Analytics: What is it and what is its role in education?
by Professor Dr. Barbara Wasson
Learning Analytics (LA) has emerged over the past 7 years as a promising field of research and domain of practice. With roots in AI in Education, Educational Data Mining (EDM), and Big Data, the field comprises research into the challenges of collecting, analysing and reporting data with the specific intent to improve learning and the contexts in which it occurs. In this talk I will give an overview of the field and reflect on its role in education.

She is also Scientific Leader of the Technology for Practice (T4P) group (formerly InterMedia), NORCE. She has a PhD in Artificial Intelligence in Education where she worked with a content planning agent for an intelligent tutoring system. She was one of the founders of Kaleidoscope, a European Network of Excellence on Technology Enhanced Learning. Wasson is/has been PI for numerous national and international projects and has over 120 publications on Technology Enhanced Learning. Her research interests include interaction design, computer support for collaborative learning (CSCL), mobile learning, learning games, intelligent tutoring systems, eassessment, teacher inquiry, learning analytics, and pedagogical agents.
