The paper “Embedding Clustering using Lightweight Contrastive Learning For Cross-Modal Classification” was awarded with Best Student Paper Award at the The 8th International Conference on Computer and Communication Systems (ICCCS 2023). The event took place on April 21-24, 2023 in Guangzhou, China.
The first author of the publication is José Amendola, which is doing his PhD at University of Agder as part of WP3 in SFI Offshore Mechatronics. The publication co-authors are Linga Reddy Cenkeramaddi and Ajit Jha.
Congratulations to José and his co-authors on this achievement.
You are invited to this innovation workshop initiated by NORCE Norwegian Research Centre, SFI Offshore Mechatronics and SFI Smart Ocean and GCE NODE and GCE Ocean Technology. The workshop will explore ocean technologies that will form the basis for future needs within operation and maintenance in the offshore, marine and maritime sectors.
SFI Offshore Mechatronics are now in its ending phase while SFI Smart Ocean is still in its startup phase. These two SFIs have overlapping and adjacent thematic areas which is relevant for the evolving offshore renewable energy sector and ocean farming. Common possibilities relevant for the industry will be approached in the workshop.
Who is the workshop intended for?
The workshop is relevant for everyone working in offshore, marine, and maritime sectors. It is especially for those who design, service or operate systems related to monitoring, performance tracking and decision support.
What is the goal of this workshop?
The goal is to create an arena where stakeholders from different regions and along the value chains within offshore, marine, and maritime industries meet to discuss common challenges and opportunities. Through sharing our perspectives and outcomes of the SFI we believe we will gain an insightful and genuine innovation processes.
The program contains selected inspirational talks from academia and industry, and a workshop element where the participants will suggest and develop their ideas in collaboration. The organizers are open for coordinating efforts originating from the workshop to initiate cooperation for further developing selected prominent topics.
