  • The interaction of the knowledge society and rural development in Iceland and Scotland

    The expansion of the knowledge society became a regional policy issue in Iceland and Scotland in the 1990s. Attention was increasingly paid to the development of the knowledge society in rural areas, especially higher education and research activities. Today, in all Iceland’s regional areas there is a university center and/or research institutes, operating as independent institutes or as a part of bigger institutes based in the Reykjavík area. Similar development has taken place in rural area...

    A Stepwise Analytical Projected Gradient Descent Search for Hyperspectral Unmixing and Its Code Vectorization

    We present, in this paper, a new methodology for spectral unmixing, where a vector of fractions, corresponding to a set of endmembers (EMs), is estimated for each pixel in the image. The process first provides an initial estimate of the fraction vector, followed by an iterative procedure that converges to an optimal solution. Specifically, projected gradient descent (PGD) optimization is applied to (a variant of) the spectral angle mapper objective function, so as to significantly reduce the ...

    Science, Tradition and Scholarship: Restoring Trust to Higher Learning in Iceland

    In this paper I argue that the academic culture, politics and the organization of the University of Iceland has been characterized by three cultures that I label as the literary, the civic, and the Humboldtian traditions. These traditions have mixed with new ideologies and social movements, vast social and economic changes, and specific historical events in shaping the University. I speculate about the role of the ‘68 movement, as a critical element in this complex development as well as the ...

    Friendship, diversity and fear : young people's life views and life values in a multicultural society

Methodological approaches are both quantitative and qualitative. The first part of the research is a survey which was conducted among altogether 904 students in seven upp...

    „Ég kom að gjörsamlega auðu borði“: Saga náms- og starfsráðgjafar á Íslandi frá árdögum til aldamóta

    Í greininni er rakin saga náms- og starfsráðgjafar á Íslandi frá upphafi á sjötta áratug síðustu aldar og fram að aldamótunum 2000. Sérstök áhersla er lögð á að segja frá frumkvöðlum náms- og starfsráðgjafar og frá athöfnum stjórnvalda. Þetta var skrykkjótt ferli, til dæmis hófst lagasetning um náms- og starfsráðgjöf á framhaldsskólastigi árið 1970 en ekki fyrr en árið 1991 á grunnskólastigi. Af stjórnvaldsathöfnum má þó ráða að þörfin fyrir þessa þjónustu hafi farið vaxandi allt þetta tímabi...
