Northern Lights Deep Learning Workshop 2020


The workshop is non-profit and will be organized at UiT The Arctic University of Norway. The team has previously organized SCIA 2017, NLDL 2018 and NLDL 2019, which also received support for the events via the IKTPLUSS funding and were successes. The group has several projects ongoing related to ICT and funded over IKTPLUSS, and this workshop will benefit those projects. The workshop program will consist of presentations and poster sessions, where participants can present recent and ongoing work. Participants that would like to present their work will be asked to submit a two-page abstract or a full six-page paper. Additionally, there will be a panel discussion, where issues and recent developments in the field will be discussed. We have invited 5 high-profile keynote speakers. This will contribute to the quality and also increase the visibility of the workshop. However, this also leads to expenses, such as plane journeys and hotels, that need to be covered. We estimate these costs to be 40 000 NOK. In addition to this, we will use the conference organizing company Xtenso AS, who will provide help with setting up registration (e.g. credit card payment, budgets). Overall, we estimate a total of 95 participants, which would result in an overall direct cost of 200 KNOK. To cover these costs, UiT The Arctic University of Norway contributes with 44KNOK (40 hours at an hourly rate of 1100,- NOK) of Jenssen's and Kampffmeyer's salary. Additionally, 100 KNOK will be used to organize a workshop in 2020. Budgeting for 45 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.
