Furthermore, the Faculty is active in various upcoming conferences and events.
We invite you to explore any of these events by clicking on their respective banners and links.
The Workshop in ICT is a National ICT event organised by the Faculty of Information and Communication Technology within the University of Malta. The intent of this event is to promote research and applications of technologies and practices in the field of ICT. The workshop solicits the submission of original papers dealing with both theoretical and practical aspects of ICT research and gives the opportunity to graduates and experts in the various areas of ICT to showcase their work and research efforts. By clicking on the banner above, you will be directed to the Workshop's webpage.
The Faculty is always proud of the achievement of its students. In this respect these awards recognize the academic performance of the Faculty's top and most achieving students.
We invite to click on the above banner to learn to whom these awards were presented over the years since these awards have been held.
We invite you to click on the banner above and browse through our students' achievements. In here you will find details of past and future exhibitions. We are always proud to showcase our students' efforts and we sincerely hope that you will enjoy and appreciate the contents of these pages.
The Faculty of Information and Communication Technology, at the University of Malta, organises a yearly informal and informative Q&A Session in the form of a Lounge Around event, at the Imsida Campus. Come and talk to us, find out how we can help you realise your potential. Ask us anything you wish about our services and about your future in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

The International Workshop on Biometrics and Forensics (IWBF) is organized by COST Action IC1106 - "Integrating Biometrics and Forensics for the Digital Age" and by IAPR TC4, the technical committee on Biometrics.
It is an international forum devoted specifically to the development of synergies between the biometrics and forensic science research areas.
IWBF provides the meeting place for those concerned with the usage of biometric recognition systems in forensic science applications, attracting participants from industry, research, academia and users.

The Hack4Malta Hackathon event is the first of its kind held locally, and will focus on the use and exploitation of Open Data.
The idea behind Open Data is that Public Sector Information (PSI), or in other words public data and information, should be freely available to everyone to use and republish as they wish, without restrictions from copyright, patents or other mechanisms of control.
During this full-day workshop there will be talks from both foreign and local experts in the field of Open Data. Furthermore, individuals that would like to participate as a group, in the Hack4Malta, will have the opportunity to brainstorm and discuss their ideas with mentors and register for the event.
A commission made up of a team of experts will choose and award the best 3 applications / services developed during Hack4Malta.
The PROFILES 2014 workshop aims to gather innovative search approaches for large-scale, distributed and heterogeneous linked datasets inline with dedicated approaches to analyse, describe and discover endpoints, as an inherent task of query distribution. PROFILES 2014 will equally consider both novel scientific methods and techniques for querying, assessment, profiling, and curation distributed datasets as well as the application perspective, such as the innovative use of tools and methods for providing structured knowledge about distributed datasets, their evolution and fundamentally, means to search and query the Web of Data. The workshop will provide a highly interactive forum for researchers in the fields of Semantic Web and Linked Data, Databases, Semantic Search, Text Mining, NLP as well as Information Retrieval.

VS-Games 2014 aims to bring together industry, academia and young people interested in the development of games for serious applications.
Although the field of game design and development for serious applications is still in its infancy in Malta, the growing interest in this domain warrants the hosting and organization of this conference, with the intent of bringing together the work done by academics and researchers, and how this can be applied to industry.
We are aware that virtual worlds and games for serious applications, find their primary use in education and training however we also wish to take the opportunity offered by this conference to enhance networking in the area and strengthen the collaboration between industry sectors and academic research for a more applied approach to designing and developing virtual worlds and games.

The IEEE Visual Communications and Image Processing (IEEE VCIP) Conference, sponsored by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, IEEE Malta Section and University of Malta, will be held in Valletta, the capital city of the Historical Malta, during 7-10 December 2014.
Since 1986, VCIP has served as a premier forum in SPIE for the exchange of fundamental research results and technological advances in the field of visual communications and image processing. The 2014 edition will be the third time that VCIP will be held under the auspices of the IEEE. IEEE VCIP 2014 shall inherit the tradition of previous conferences in providing fertile ground for leading engineers and scientists from around the world to escalate collaboratively the research frontiers within these and related areas.
