The 4th International Symposium on Fundamental and Applied Sciences
March 29-31, 2016 Kyoto, Japan
Topic: Impressive Slideshow without Presentation Software
Speaker: Kazuaki Maeda / Professor, Department of Business Administration and Information Science, Chubu University, Japan
Abstract: When we give a presentation at conferences, we usually use one of desktop presentation software such as Powerpoint, OpenOffice.org and Keynote. This talk shows how to create slides and run a slideshow without the presentation software. We can use open source software such as web browsers, LaTeX and JavaFX to make the slideshow. It supports running the slideshow with eye-catching transitions.
About the Speaker: He graduated from Graduate School of Science and Technology in Keio University. After leaving Keio University, he got an academic position at Chubu University in Japan. Now he is a professor at Department of Business Administration and Information Science at Chubu University. His research interests are Web Applications, Open Source Software, Domain Specific Languages, Compiler Construction, Object-Oriented Programming.
Topic: Future Distributed Applications Based on Mobile Cloud Computing and Software-Defin Speaker Sergei Gorlatch Professor Computer Science University of Muenster Germany
Speaker: Sergei Gorlatch Professor Computer Science University of Muenster Germany
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).
About the Speaker: 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. 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).
