Talk by Prof. Ivan Andonovic on "Evolution and Applications of Wireless Sensor Networks"

Dear all,

You are cordially invited to the following talks:

Session 1:
Date: 24/3/10
Time: 11:00am - 12:30pm
Venue: UTAR PJ Campus PD206

Session 2:
Date: 25/3/10
Time: 2:00pm - 3:30pm
Venue: UTAR Perak Campus A009

Title: Evolution and Applications of Wireless Sensor Networks
Abstract: Advances in low cost wireless and processing hardware have stimulated a range of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) research and their subsequent deployment in a number of applications. Since cost is an essential factor in any development, their designs are driven according to issues such as restricted memory size, limited computation power and low power consumption. However advanced applications such as those demanded by the medical/health care, military and surveillance sectors require higher levels of network performance supporting time sensitive, guaranteed and secure high quality data delivery. These demanding applications drive the need to enhance first generation WSN concepts.

Speaker: Ivan Andonovic, University of Strathclyde, UK
Biography: Ivan Andonovic, Professor of Broadband Networks, graduated with a BSc (Hons.) in Electronic and Electrical Engineering in 1978 from the University of Strathclyde. He received a PhD in ‘Lithium Niobate Waveguide Devices’ in conjunction with neighbouring Glasgow University in 1982. He is presently the Head of the Centre for Intelligent Dynamic Communications Systems (CIDCOM) at the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Strathclyde University.
He joined Strathclyde in 1985 following several years at Barr and Stroud where he was responsible for the design, manufacture and test of optical guided wave devices. He has held a two year Royal Society Industrial Fellowship, in collaboration with British Telecommunications (BT) Labs during which he investigated novel approaches to broadband networking. Professor Andonovic’s research interests centre on the development of broadband networks, access and home networking and wireless sensor systems. He has edited two books and authored/co-authored six chapters in books and over 230 journal and conference papers. He has been chairman on the IET Professional Group E13, held a BT Short Term Fellowship, Visiting Scientist status at the Communications Research Laboratories of Japan, Visiting Professor at the City University of Hong Kong and Princeton University, USA. He is Topical Editor for the ‘IEEE Transactions on Communications’ and was Technical Programme Co-Chair for the recent ‘IEEE International Conference in Communications (ICC07)’. Prof. Andonovic is a Fellow of the IET, holds Senior Member status within the IEEE and is member of the Optical Society of America.
He was co-founder, Director and Chief Technology Officer of Kamelian Ltd., a high growth technology start-up focussing on the design and manufacture of advanced semi-conductor devices. He was also a member of flagship Scottish Enterprise (government agency for economic growth) establishment team of the Intermediary Technology Institutes (ITIs), aimed at bridging the gap between basic research and company growth. Presently he holds the ITI Techmedia Sponsored Chair in Broadband Networks facilitating the interaction between fundamental research in communications technologies and digital media and pre-competitive development of technologies that will form the input to commercialisation activities in Scotland.

Skinput. Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University and Microsoft Research developed a prototype for user interface, called Skinput. The prototype allows users to use their own hands and arms as touch-screens by detecting the various ultralow-frequency sounds produced when tapping different parts of the skin.

Talk on "Gaps between Observations – What Can One Learn from Them?"

Title: Gaps between Observations – What Can One Learn from Them?
Speaker: Professor Dr. S. Rao Jammalamadaka, University of California, Santa Barbara, U.S.A.
Date: 5 March 2010, Friday
Time: 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Venue: MM3, Institute of Mathematical Sciences, University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur
This talk will provide an overview of some of the main ideas in the theory of spacings, i.e. the gaps between successive observations. After reviewing some basic properties of spacings, their use in testing statistical hypotheses and in estimating parameters, will be discussed. Two-sample tests based on “spacings-frequencies” and their relationship to locally most powerful rank tests will be explored, as are some possible extensions to observations in higher dimensions.
