International Online IT-School was held by Northern Arctic Federal University on 12-16 October 2020 within the framework of the Kolarctic CBC project “Disruptive IT for Barents Euro-Arctic Regions”. It was the first time the NArFU hosted the IT school and made it online. The online format of the event allowed to involve leading foreign and Russian IT experts as keynote speakers and to broaden the number of participants up to more than 40 participants from 17 countries of the world: China, Germany, Finland, Indonesia, Senegal and Russia and others.
The School became the international platform for studying latest trends in the sphere of information technologies and exchanging practical experience in the different areas of the IT industry. During the intensive and rich 5-days programme students practiced their IT skills in the deep learning, blockchain, Internet of Things and project management.
