R10 CS Mega DVP Program

Region 10 IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Computer Society DVP Committee is taking a novel initiative to organize R10 CS Mega DVP Program (virtual) starting from May to June 2022. In this program, IEEE Computer Society DVP speakers across the regions are invited to deliver talks in their area of expertise. This is the first- time speakers beyond Region 10 are invited for R10 CS webinars. 

The program is focused on providing a platform to enable the learning, and discovery of new technologies/knowledge for students, young professionals and members of the IEEE Computer Society. This is a great opportunity for the IEEE CS members in Region 10 to acquire knowledge from DVP speakers from other regions.

7 May at 7 PM (IST): Dr. Yuhong Liu, associate professor at the department of computer engineering at Santa Clara University, will offer a presentation on “Trust and Privacy Attacks in Online Social Networks.” Dr. Liu’s presentation offers a look at security, trust and privacy issues in online social networks—the trends and challenges. In particular, she will examine 1) Efficiently Promoting Product Online Outcome: An Iterative Rating Attack Utilizing Product and Market Property and 2) Retrieving Hidden Friends: A Collusion Privacy Attack Against Online Friend Search.. 

9 May at 10:30 AM (IST): Professor Salil Kanhere, professor of computer science and engineering with UNSW Sydney, Australia, will present on “Transparent, Trustworthy and Privacy-Preserving Supply Chains.” In the presentation, to support traceability and provenance, Dr. Kanhere proposes a consortium blockchain based framework, ProductChain, which provides an immutable audit trail of product’s supply chain events and its origin. He then addresses the issue of trust associated with the qualities of the commodities and the entities logging data on the blockchain through an extensible framework, TrustChain.

14 May at 12:30 PM (IST): Professor Dharm Sing Jat will present on “Smart Computing and Communication: Enabling Future Internet of Things (IoT)” Dr. Singh is a professor of computer science at Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST). Dr. Singh’s presentation will provide a brief overview of smart computing and communication, functional interoperability for IoT devices, edge computing, QoS support, future research directions and challenges within the context of a local environment such as home, factory, vehicle, office or airport, etc.

19 May at 6 PM (IST): distinguished professor in the department of computer science at New Jersey Institute of Technology, Dr. David Bader will present on “Solving Global Grand Challenges with High Performance Data Analytics.” Dr. Bader will discuss the opportunities and challenges in massive data science for applications in social sciences, physical sciences, and engineering

19 May at 8 PM (IST): Dr. Nancy Mead, fellow of the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), and an adjunct professor of software engineering at Carnegie Mellon University will present on a topic To Be Determined. Dr. Mead’s research areas are security requirements engineering and software assurance curricula. 

21 May at 6:30 PM (IST): Dr. Rami Abielmona, vice president of research & engineering at Larus Technologies Corporation will present on a topic to be determined. Dr. Abielmona is responsible for all research and development of AI/ML software, hardware and products, as well as the management and direction of the research team at Larus Technologies.

26 May at 9:30 AM (IST): Dr. Raja Jurdak, professor of distributed systems and chair in applied data sciences at Queensland University of Technology, and director of the Trusted Networks Lab, will present “Blockchain for Cyberphysical Systems.” Dr. Jurdak’s talk explores how Blockchain technology has the potential to overcome challenges in the current cyber-physical system environment.

26 May at 5 PM (IST): Dr. Elvira Popescu, full professor at the computers and information technology department, University of Craiova, Romania, will present “Learning Analytics—a Multiple Perspectives Analysis of Student Data.” The talk will focus on research in social learning analytics, addressing the “trinity” of methodological approaches—network analysis, process-oriented analysis, content-oriented analysis—and offering a more comprehensive learning analytics perspective.

04 June at 3.30 PM (IST): Dr. Martin Gilje Jaatun is a Senior Scientist at SINTEF Digital in Trondheim, Norway, and an Adjunct Professor at the University of Stavanger. He will present “An introduction to cybersecurity and industrial application”. Stuxnet may have been the first “I told you so” moment for security experts who have been crying wolf about lack of security in industrial applications since the previous millennium, but there have been a number of equally serious incidents in the recent past. This talk will give a brief introduction to some of these incidents, highlighting important trends and the need for increased vigilance.

16 June at 12.30 PM (IST): Prof. Shui Yu will present “Big Data Privacy: from Networking and Artificial Intelligence Perspectives”. In this talk, we firstly present the essential issues of privacy preserving in the big data setting, then we review the current work of the field from two perspectives: networking and artificial intelligence. Then we discuss the challenges in the domain and possible promising directions. We humbly hope this talk will shed light for forthcoming researchers to explore the uncharted part of this promising land.
