Title: IoT/CPS: M2M Communication, Actuation and Coordination Challenges

Abstract: Existing machine-to-machine (M2M) communications incorporate a central point for gathering information, making decision, and acting. Large scale cyber-physical systems (CPS) beyond M2M concept are envisioned with the distributed actuation and in-network processing. Machine-to-machine communication aspects include data dissemination, data aggregation, reporting mechanisms for monitoring, cooperative access. Other related issues that would be explored are modeling, inter-dependency and topology control, and security and privacy. This lecture emphasizes actuation as one of important tools in the future applications of Internet of Things and Cyber Physical Systems architectures. Various existing models for wireless sensor and actuator networks are elaborated. It then concentrates on the network layer issues in wireless sensor and sensor-actuator networks. Coordination between sensors and robots, and robot to robot coordination are then covered with some concrete problem formulations. These include robot dispersion, communication aspects of robot coordination, robot task allocation, and sensor placement and relocation to improve sensing area coverage.

Keynote Speaker 2Dr. Albert Y. Zomaya

Chair Professor at the University of Sydney, Australia

Title: Adaptable Resource Management in Clouds

Abstract: Cloud Computing is among the fastest growing topics in computing research today. Although the idea of offering computational power as a service is not novel, it did not publically become available before Clouds. Clouds are fundamentally different from their predecessors (Grids/Clusters) and thus require specific expertise to be properly utilized. Today, there are literally hundreds of cloud providers in all shapes and sizes. Computing needs (applications) have also become increasingly diverse. In this talk, I will describe challenges with the dynamicity and heterogeneity of resources and the diversity of applications from resource management perspective. Then, I will discuss how we can turn these challenges into opportunities for cloud systems’ efficiency.

Keynote Speaker 4: Dr. Yi Pan

Distinguished University Professor and Chair, Department of Computer Science, Georgia State University, USA

Title: Cloud Computing Programming Models - Challenges and Solutions

Abstract: Cloud computing has emerged rapidly as a growing paradigm of on-demand access to computing, data and software utilities using a usage-based billing model. Users essentially rent resources and pay for what they use and everything including software, platform, and infrastructure is as a service. In this talk, I will give a review of supercomputing, cluster computing, grid computing and cloud computing. Comparisons of these computing domains and programming models, their limitations and potential solutions will be included in this talk. In particular, I will point out the shortcomings and limitations of current cloud computing programming models and propose possible solutions. Current MapReduce model and its variants have succeeded in data-parallel applications such as database operations and web searching; however, they are still not effective for compute-intensive applications such as many graph applications. We propose several approaches to solving this problem through extension of current programming models, automatic translation from sequential codes to cloud codes, simple API and framework built on current cloud models, detection of data and task parallelism, and their efficient scheduling. Some preliminary theoretical and experimental results will also be reported in this talk.

Title: Traffic Modelling and Quality-of-Service in High Performance Multimedia Networks

Abstract: Differentiated Quality-of-Service (QoS) is an important requirement of high performance multimedia networks. Multimedia applications are usually categorized into various classes according to their traffic patterns and QoS requirements. The hybrid scheduling system that combines the fundamental traffic scheduling schemes in a hierarchical manner is a promising strategy for traffic management, resource allocation, and QoS assurance in multi-service networks. This talk will report various traffic models for capturing the traffic characteristics in real-world computer networks and then present an analytical performance model for the integrated scheduling system under heterogeneous multimedia traffic and investigate the QoS metrics including the queue length distribution and loss probability of individual traffic flows in the system. The accuracy of the analytical model is validated through extensive comparison between the analytical results and those obtained from simulation experiments subject to the real-world multimedia applications. The analytical model is then used as a cost-effective performance optimization tool for resource management and QoS assurance in multimedia networks. Finally, the related emerging issues and future directions will be presented and discussed.

Keynote Speaker 10: Dr. Yang Xiang

Professor at School of Information Technology, Deakin University, Australia

Title: Classifying Network Traffic in the Big Data Era

Abstract: With the arrival of Big Data Era, properly utilizing the power of big data is becoming essential for the strength and competitiveness of businesses and organizations. We are facing grand challenges from big data from different perspectives, such as processing, communication, security, and privacy. In this talk, we discuss the challenges in classifying big network traffic data and our solutions to the challenges. The significance of the research lies in the fact that each year the network traffic increase exponentially on the current Internet. Traffic classification has wide applications in network management, from security monitoring to quality of service measurements. Recent research tends to apply machine-learning techniques to flow statistical feature based classification methods. In this talk, we propose a series of novel approaches for traffic classification, which can improve the classification performance effectively by incorporating correlated information into the classification process. We analyze the new classification approaches and their performance benefit from both theoretical and empirical perspectives. Our work has significant impact on wide applications.
