Prof. Sergei Gorlatch

University of Muenster, Germany

Title: Distributed Applications Based on Mobile Cloud Computing and Software-Defined Networks
Abstract: We consider an emerging class of challenging networked multimedia applications called Real-Time Online Interactive Applications (ROIA). ROIA are networked applications connecting a potentially very high number of users who interact with the application and with each other in real time, i.e., a response to a user’s action happens virtually immediately. Typical representatives of ROIA are multiplayer online computer games, advanced simulation-based e-learning and serious gaming. All these applications are characterized by high performance and QoS requirements, such as: short response times to user inputs (about 0.1-1.5 s); frequent state updates (up to 100 Hz); large and frequently changing numbers of users in a single application instance (up to tens of thousands simultaneous users). This talk will address two challenging aspects of future Internet-based ROIA applications: a) using Mobile Cloud Computing for allowing high application performance when a ROIA application is accessed from multiple mobile devices, and b) managing dynamic QoS requirements of ROIA applications by employing the emerging technology of Software-Defined Networking (SDN).

Dr. Sergei Gorlatch has been Full Professor of Computer Science at the University of Muenster (Germany) since 2003. Earlier he was Associate Professor at the Technical University of Berlin, Assistant Professor at the University of Passau, and Humboldt Research Fellow at the Technical University of Munich, all in Germany. Prof. Gorlatch has about 200 peer-reviewed publications in renowned international books, journals and conferences. He was principal investigator in several international research and development projects in the field of parallel, distributed, Grid and Cloud algorithms, networking and computing, as well as e-Learning, funded by the European Commission and by German national bodies. Among his recent achievements in the area of communications and future Internet is the novel Real-Time Framework (www.real-time-framework.com) developed in his group as a platform for high-level development of real-time, highly interactive applications for entertainment. In the area of networking, his group has been recently working in the pan-European project OFERTIE on an application-oriented Quality of Service approach for emerging Software-Defined Networks (SDN).


 

 

 


Prof. Ray C.C. Cheung

City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Title&Abstract

Dr. Ray Chak-Chung Cheung received the B.Eng.(Hons) and M.Phil. degrees in computer engineering and computer science & engineering from The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) in 1999 and 2001 respectively, and the DIC and Ph.D. degree in computing from Imperial College London (IC) in 2007.
He joined the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) in 2002 as an Instructor. Before that, he worked as a system administrator in a parallel cluster computing company, Cluster Technology Limited for one year. Two years later in 2004, he received theHong Kong Croucher Foundation Scholarship and moved to London where he spent three years for his Ph.D. study. He was with Stanford University and UCLA in the summer of 2005 and 2006 as a visiting scholar. After completing his Ph.D. study, he received the Hong Kong Croucher Foundation Fellowship and moved to Los Angeles, in the Electrical Engineering department at UCLA, where he spent two years with Image Communication Lab for continuing his research work. In 2008, he took a 6-month internship at a top IC design company in Hong Kong, Solomon-Systech Limited as a senior digital IC designer. In 2009, he visited the PALMS group in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University as a visiting research fellow before returning to Hong Kong. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Electronic Engineering at City University of Hong Kong, and with Digital Systems Lab. His current research interests include cryptographic hardware designs and design exploration of System-on-Chip (SoC) designs and embedded system designs. He is the chairman of the IEEE Hong Kong Section CAS/COM Chapter, and executive committee member of the IEEE Hong Kong Section Computer Chapter. He is the author of over 100 journal papers and conference papers.

 

 


Plenary Speaker

Prof. Ratchatin Chanchareon

Chulalongkorn University, Thailand

Title&Abstract

Dr. Ratchatin Chancharoen is currently an Associate Professor at the Mechanical Engineering Department, Chulalongkorn University, Thailand. He received his BS degree in mechanical engineering from Chulalongkorn University in 1991, MS degree in mechanical engineering from Oregon State University in 1994, and PhD degree in mechanical engineering from Chulalongkorn University in 2000. Dr. Ratchatin Chancharoen has twenty years’ experience in robotics research including both manipulators and mobile robots and ten years in teaching both Robotics and Mechatronics at the university level. During these years, he has designed and built more than twenty robots in various configurations and published more than 20 research papers and one text book entitled "Linear Control Systems" (in Thai). He is principal investigator and co-investigator of several research grants in robotics and also the manager of a number of industrial projects in design and control. His current research activities involve 3D printing based on syringe pump, auger pump, and gear pump for gel like materials. He also developed a novel drive mechanism for collaborative robot such that force, compliance, and position can be controlled in one axis. His main research interests are in the field of Robotics, Mechatronics, and Cyber Physical System including new hardware processor, electronics, control algorithm, and intelligence.​
