CCIS Talk: In-Vehicle Communication by SungKwon Park

You are cordially invited to the following CCIS Talks:

Date: 14th August 2014 (Thursday)
Time: 1:30PM – 3:00 PM
Venue: SA 6th Floor West Meeting Room, UTAR Kuala Lumpur Campus, Setapak, Kuala Lumpur.

Date: 18th August 2014 (Monday)
Time: 3:30PM – 05:00 PM
Venue: N010, FICT, UTAR Perak Campus, Kampar.

Title: In-Vehicle Network

Abstract:Recently, electric cars are beginning to be commercially sold worldwide. At the same time, the smart grids for intelligent electric energy distribution encompassing solar and wind power generators are beginning to be deployed. In addition, so many infotainment devices such as monitors, cameras, sensors, and radars are beginning to be installed in a vehicle. This creates strong demand for a broad band vehicle network (IVN). In addition, Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) communications are gaining attraction because they are proven to minimize accidents. Now these devices in cars need to communicate each other and also with devices in other cars through the smart grid infrastructure and wirelessly. In this lecture, those will be discussed with more detail and IVN technologies will be introduced with more depth.

Speaker: Professor Sungkwon Park, Hanyang University


Prof. SungKwon Park is currently Full Professor at Hanyang University and. He joined Tennessee Technological University, Cookeville, TN, USA as Assistant Professor in Department of Electrical Engineering, upon his graduation from RPI in 1987. In 1990, he received an Initiation Award from US National Science Foundation. He left Tennessee Tech in 1993 as Tenured Associate Professor to join Hanyang University.
His publication include 7 authored books and over 200 refereed technical papers in the areas of VoD, IPTV, data communications, CATV multimedia System, image processing, and digital communication systems. He holds over 40 domestic and international patents. He is a senior member of IEEE, a member of the IEICE, a life member of Korean Information and Communications Society.

CCIS Talk: Seismic Imaging in Oil and Gas Exploration by Deva Ghosh

You are cordially invited to the following CCIS Talk:

Date: 8th August 2014 (Friday)
Time: 11:00AM – 12:30PM
VenueP107, FICT, UTAR Kampar Campus, Perak.
Title: Introduction to Seismic Imaging in Oil and Gas Exploration
Global oil and gas industry has a bright future even in the backdrop of uncertainty and volatility in the market. There is everlasting need of energy demand in the light of prosperity and industrialism. The oil and gas follows a Petroleum System where the oil is generated from organic matter, migrates to the structure where is trapped inside a reservoir. Seismic imaging is the most important and crucial step in recovering the geology with hydrocarbon (See Fig 1) from the seismic response.
This talk deals with generating a wave that is send and interacts with the geology to produce a response. This response is recorded by detectors on the surface. Seismic wave propagation is then imaged to produce a structural profile that could be visualized in 3D.
Speaker: Prof. Deva Ghosh, Universiti Teknologi Petronas
Deva Ghosh obtained his Ph.D. (1970) from Delft University, the Netherlands. He worked at Banaras Hindu University as Associate Professor in Geophysics for about 8 years. He worked in Shell from 1974-1999 holding various technological and management positions. He later joined PETRONAS in 2000 and was responsible for research, development, and application of geophysical technology worldwide.
In 2011, he joined the University wing of PETRONAS (UTP) as Professor in Geophysics and currently responsible as Head of Center of excellence in Subsurface Seismic Imaging & Hydrocarbon Prediction (CSI). He is passionate about geophysics, about developing local staff, and transfer of technology. His field of Interest is in Seismic Imaging, Seismic Attributes and Hydrocarbon prediction. He is a member of AAPG, SPE, EAGE and SEG, and a former editor of EAGE. He was SEG-Shell Distinguished Lecturer for SE Asia in 2010 & EAGE Lecturer 2012.
