NYIT and the Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST) hosted the three-day International Conference on Information & Communication Systems on Dec. 20-22 in Irbid, Jordan. It brought together more than 200 technology experts to explore topics such as artificial intelligence, Web content mining, mobile computing, information security and crypto-graphy, intrusion detection, and computer forensics.

In his welcoming remarks delivered via video, President Guiliano said, “NYIT and its partner, JUST, are proud to support research on cutting-edge technologies” and emphasized the importance of such scientific gatherings to “solve the collective challenges we face in the 21st century.”

Through its partnership with JUST, NYIT has provided students in Jordan access to opportunity since 2001 through its undergraduate and graduate degree programs, which include business administration, computer
science, and information technology.

For the past two years, NYIT and JUST have also hosted joint medical conferences in the United States and Jordan to discuss vital issues in the medical field, including problem-based learning, physician shortages, and virtual medicine. Last year’s conference, held at NYIT-Old Westbury, gave academic and medical experts the chance to witness NYIT’s contributions to medical education as they toured campus facilities, research labs, and classrooms.

Later this year, NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences will host a cyber security conference at NYIT-Manhattan to bring together government officials and experts to discuss computer vulnerabilities as well as new developments in the protection of individuals and organizations against cyber attacks.
