The 14th National Conference on Computing and Information Technology

The huge amount of raw data generated by government, industry and business, commonly known as Big Data, require more and more efficient tools to turn them into useful information and knowledge. The 14th National Conference on Computing and Information Technology provides an exchange of the state of the art and future developments in the five key areas of this process: Data Science and Machine Learning, Data Network and Communication, Human-Computer Interface and Image Processing and Information Technology and System Engineering and Learning Science. Behind the background of the foundation of society, it becomes clear that efficient languages, business principles and communication methods need to be adapted, unified and especially optimized to gain a maximum benefit to the users and customers of future IT systems.

The NCCIT2018 will be organized by King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok (KMUTNB) and partner institutions from Thailand and abroad.


The conference is to be a platform for providing and exchanging information, knowledge, skills, and experiences in the field of computing and information technology.

Invited Speakers

Professor Dr.Chris Biemann, Universität Hamburg

Chris Biemann obtained his doctorate in Computer Science / Natural Language Processing in 2007 from the University of Leipzig, before joining the San-Francisco-based semantic search startup Powerset, which was acquired by Microsoft to form the Bing.com search engine. In 2011, he got appointed as assistant professor for language technology in the computer science department at TU Darmstadt; since October 2016, Chris is professor for language technology at the University of Hamburg in Germany. His current research is focused on adaptive natural language processing in the cognitive computing paradigm, web-scale statistical semantic methods, machine learning from crowdsourcing signals and on applications in the humanities and social sciences. He has co-authored more than 150 peer-reviewed papers in the field of natural language processing. His research group regularly releases open datasets and open source software to the community.

Professor Dr.Martin Hagan, Oklahoma State University

Dr. Hagan has taught and conducted research in the areas of statistical modeling and control systems for the last thirty years. His research has encompassed a variety of application areas: seismic signal processing, genetic pathway modeling, optimal portfolio management, electric load prediction, flight simulators, precision pointing systems, diesel engines, adaptive flight control and friction compensation.

He has received grants from Boeing, Texas Instruments, Halliburton Energy Services, Cummins Engine Company, National Science Foundation, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS), Amgen, and FlightSafety International.
