URKUND had a stand at Dé Onderwijsdagen in Rotterdam for the third year in a row on Tuesday, 9th November. The popular expo was attended by several hundred delegates and URKUND was kept busy during the day, with the time when the delegates are in conferences filled with talking to partner companies, strengthening existing relationships and creating new ones. We would like to extend our thanks to the organisers, the delegates and the other exhibitors who all helped make OWD16 a great success.

URKUND were very happy to have been invited to Inspera's conference day in Oslo on Friday, 23rd September. We were on the same bill as speakers from universities in Norway, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Austria and Switzerland. URKUND held two talks about plagiarism prevention and how we work with Inspera.
All in all, the day was both very enjoyable and beneficial to all who attended. We would like to express our thanks once again to Inspera for inviting us and for their warm hospitality.
URKUND had a stand at ALT-C, the conference of the Association for Learning Technology, that was held at the University of Warwick in early September 2016.
This was URKUND's third visit to ALT-C and was even more rewarding than ever. It is always a pleasure to visit ALT-C as the delegates are always interesting, interested and friendly. It is perhaps telling of URKUND's burgeoning popularity in the UK that we were unable to attend any of the workshops as we were busy showing people the system and talking about URKUND's plagiarism detection system.
If you, like us, have to catch up on the days' presentations, you can find the keynotes on ALT's YouTube channel for the 2016 conference here.
We always have a lot going on at URKUND.

“We’ve definitely noticed an increasing incidence of plagiarism since URKUND was introduced, and previously there was of course a high level of undetected incidence. It was far too time consuming for the teaching staff to carry out their own plagiarism checks. The automation has led to a bigger haul of perpetrators,” says Joshua Kragh Bruhn, Information specialist at CBS.
“The preventive objective of plagiarism detection is highly significant. When the students become aware of URKUND they are less inclined to seek shortcuts. Trying to cheat the system is ultimately more resource intensive than doing a good job from the start,” says Arshad Hussanee, Learn Online Manager på University of Canberra.
