Invited Lectures

VP.1 James Jhing-fa Wang: Orange Technology and Happiness Informatics

Prof. Jhing-Fa Wang is currently the President of Tajen University and a Chair and Distinguished Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU). He got his bachelor and master degree from NCKU in Taiwan and Ph. D. from Stevens Institute of Technology USA in 1973, 1979 and 1983 respectively. He is the formal chair of IEEE Tainan Section IEEE. He was elected as IEEE Fellow in 1999 for his contribution on: “Hardware and Software Co-design on Speech Signal Processing”, He was also the general Chair of ISCAS 2009.

Abstract. The Orange Technology refers to a newly evolved interdisciplinary research area for integration and innovation of health, happiness, and care technologies. The research scope includes computer science, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, psychological/physiological science, cognitive science, and social science. The representative color of Orange Technology originates from a harmonic fusion of red (representing brightness of health and happiness) and yellow (representing warming care). Instead of emphasizing the relations between environments and humans, as proposed by green technology, the objective of Orange Technology will explore the innovative technologies to bring more health, happiness, warming care, and more mental wellness to the society.

VP.2 Aurilla Aurelie Bechina Arntzen: Knowledge Management in System Engineering: Concepts and Challenges

Dr. Aurilla Aurelie Bechina Arntzen is Professor at Buskerud and Vestfold University College in Norway since January 2008. She is co-founder of institute for Knowledge and Innovation in Southe-East Asia, Bangkok. She received her Ph.D. in Automation, from INSA (Institute National des Sciences Appliquées) of Strasbourg, France in 1997. She has several years combined teaching and research IT experience from several well-known International institutions. Her academic interests are broad ranging from real-time systems development to the conception of knowledge systems. As independent consultant, she has been working with customers in Project management, training, Business process improvement, information and knowledge management systems. She has participated and co-leaded several European projects. She served as an expert evaluator for the European commission and the Norwegian research council. She is author and co-author of several technical and scientific publications.

Abstract. It is well recognized that knowledge is an important asset for organizations. Making the most value from employees’ knowledge is an important element of a resource-based strategy for engineering firms. There are several approaches in acquiring, storing and distributing knowledge. Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary approach enabling the design, conception, implementation and evaluation of successful systems. They are several techniques and methods facilitating definition of customer need, requirement documentation, technical functionality specification, system design and validation. Knowledge Management is important in several phases of a system engineering process. The talk will present concepts, opportunity and challenges of a KM initiative; and how it will contribute to a successful system engineering.

VP.3 A.R. Hurson: PERCEPOLIS: Pervasive Cyberinfrastructure for Personalized eLearning and Instructional Support

Joined ACM/IEEE Invited Lecture

A. R. Hurson is a professor of departments of Computer Science, and Electrical and Computer Engineering at Missouri S&T. For the period of 2008-20012 he served as the computer science department chair. Before joining Missouri S&T, he was a professor of Computer Science and Engineering department at The Pennsylvania State University. His research for the past 30 years has been supported by NSF, DARPA, Department of Education, Air Force, Office of Naval Research, NCR Corp., General Electric, IBM, Lockheed Martin, Penn State University, and Missouri S & T. He has published over 300 technical papers in areas including database systems, multidatabases, global information sharing processing, application of mobile agent technology, object oriented databases, Mobile and pervasive computing, computer architecture and cache memory, parallel and distributed processing, dataflow architectures, and VLSI algorithms.

Professor Hurson has been active in various IEEE/ACM Conferences and has given tutorials on global information sharing, database management systems, supercomputer technology, data/knowledge-based systems, dataflow processing, scheduling and load balancing, parallel computing, and Pervasive computing. Currently, he is serving as an ACM distinguish lecturer, Editor-in-Chief Advances in computers, editor of The CSI Journal of Computer Science and Engineering, and editor of Computing Journal.

Abstract. For the past 800 years, educational systems have relied heavily on a traditional course delivery environment, which has a lecture-based (one-instructor-to-many students) model and a discrete, linear course structure. Advances in databases, distributed computing, computational intelligence, and especially pervasive computing, which allows transparent, non-intrusive, “anytime, anywhere” access to information, provide fertile ground for radical changes in pedagogy and instructional design.

Direct observation of forty schools of engineering and examination of 100 accreditation self-study reports served as the basis for evaluating the state of undergraduate engineering education in the United States manifested in Educating Engineers: Designing for the Future of the Field report. This report identified “linearity” and “static trajectory” of the dominant curricular as contradictory model to the body of knowledge on how students learn. A networked model and personalization of trajectory have been proposed as potential solutions (personalized learning has been recognized as one of fourteen Grand Challenges for Engineering by the National Academy of Engineering). Cyberinfrastructure leveraging recent technological advances can yield improvements in both instruction and learning, through personalization and support of networked curricula.

This talk is an attempt in that direction. It introduces PERCEPOLIS (Pervasive Cyberinfrastructure for Personalized Learning and Instructional Support) an innovative, practical, and comprehensive alternative to the traditional linear curriculum and lecture-based static pedagogy. PERCEPOLIS leverages a collection of enabling technologies, including intelligent software agents, distributed and heterogeneous databases, and global information sharing processes to facilitate transformative changes to higher education, by enabling the effective use of learning technology and the personalization of courses and curricula. The principal conceptual framework behind PERCEPOLIS is discussed, and its implementation and its effect oncurricular are addressed in depth.

VP.4 Andrej Krejan: Trends in development of modern automotive headlamps

Andrej Krejan, M.Sc is Head of Electronics Development at Hella Saturnus Slovenija d.o.o.

Abstract. Decades ago automotive headlamps were based on directing light from a bulb into required direction using reflectors and lenses. Low-beam and high-beam functions were standard. Some rare attempts of adaptive headlamps remained more or less just exotic experiments.

Development of stronger light-sources (xenon), combined with rapidly increasing capabilites of electronic systems, paved way for new functionalities, which soon became part of standard offer of car-makers.

During the last years while LED light sources are being developed very fast. Properties of these new light-sources enable completely new conceptual solutions for headlamps. Matrix beam, laser light, animated direction indicators and other solutions are appearing on the market. Considering speed of the development it can realistically be expected that technically superior products will soon be available in all price-segments.

This talk briefly describes historical development and shows some actual trends in the development of advanced headlamps.
