The Ubiquitous DBMS
Kyu Young Whang Author: Kyu-Young Whang, Distinguished Professor, KAIST, Korea, IEEE Fellow
Abstract: Recent widespread use of mobile technologies and advancement in computing power prompted strong needs of database systems that can be used in small devices such as sensors, cellular phones, PDA, ultra PCs, and navigators. We call database systems that are customizable from small-scale applications for small devices to large-scale applications such as large-scale search engines ubiquitous database management systems (UDBMSs). In this talk, we first review requirements of UDBMSs. The requirements we identified include selective convergence (or "devicetization"), flash-optimized storage system, data synchronization, supportability of unstructured/semi-structured data, and complex database operations. We then review existing systems and research prototypes. ...

The fundamental tools & concepts to develop “Manufacturing-IT system” based on Lean Manufacturin
Author: Dr. Vernon Harrison,Siemens/A.&Drives, Canada
Abstract: With foreign investments reaching $16 billion in 2007 - up 30 percent over 2006 - Vietnam is certainly one of the hottest markets for electronics and supply manufacturers. Analysts specializing in technological and commercial issues impacting electronics fabrication, agree that Vietnam is a lower-cost alternative to China. Many of the larger [companies] are including Vietnam to control risk while providing access to the same markets as do Chinese facilities. Electronics or Mechatronics Manufacturing and specifically Electronics Assembly (EA) is becoming a high-tech reality in Vietnam and Vietnam with face the same challenges as the global manufacturing community The hot topic among manufacturers around the globe is "Lean Manufacturing" or "Toyota Production System" (TPS). Lean manufacturing or TPS is far from a new concept, and many within the Electronics / Mechatronics Manufacturing industry are already familiar with the principles and concepts behind it. However, in spite of widespread understanding, the percentage that actually "Live Lean" within EM tends to be far less.

Education Informatics and the International Internet Classroom
Author: Prof. Paul Cohen, Department of Computer Science, The University of Arizona
Abstract: Classroom instruction has changed little in centuries. The orthodox elements of the education industry teachers unions and textbook companies are slow to embrace technology. This is unfortuate both because education informatics offers many novel approaches to lifelong education and because conventional classroom instruction is in trouble, worldwide. Scores are falling, students are dropping out of school, employers are frustrated, and too few students have sufficient mathematics and science training to support competitiveness in research. These problems are acute in the United States, but they afflict many other nations.

Application of Ubiquitous Sensor Network to Medical and Health Care Systems
Author: Prof. Masaharu IMAI, Osaka University, Japan
Abstract: ICT (Information and Communication Technology) is the key technology to implement embedded systems for various applications, that include space craft, airplane, automobile, mobile phone, digital audio-visual equipment, home appliance, etc. Among these applications, medical and health care systems are becoming very important to realize better QOL (Quality of Life). In this talk, some of the medical and health care applications are introduced that take advantage of ubiquitous sensor network technology, and discuss future trends in these application areas.

The panorama of ICT industry in Vietnam: Opportunities and Challenges
Author: Dr. Nguyen Ai Viet, MIC, Vietnam
Abstract: ICT Industry of Vietnam is keeping to grow at a high annual rate. In 2010, the ICT market in Vietnam will be fully open for competition, leading to many opportunities and challenges. There are four main trends of ICT industry development: manufacturing, offshore outsourcing, servive and R&D. For the long term development, the quality of human resource and intellectual property must be improved. Academic-Public-Private Partnership Model is suggested as necessary measure to overcome the current difficulties. In a small scale, the model can be implemented with initiatives from the private sector. However, without a stronger commitment and action of the government, building of the necessary supporting Econo Social Infrastructure would be a big challenge in order to implement this model at a large scale leading to a break through in ICT industry development of Vietnam

Vietnamese Language Processing: Issues and Challenges
Author: Prof. Ho Tu Bao, Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST), Japan; Vietnamese Academy of Science and Technology (VAST), Vietnam.
Abstract:
Vietnamese language and speech processing plays an crucial role in ICT development in Vietnam in both research and development. This talk aims to address the issues and challenges of Vietnamese language processing. The talk starts by a brief view on the current status of research and development in this field. It follows by discussing on how the research and development of Vietnamese language processing can catch up the current progress of text technology, on the one hand, and how to appropriately incorporate the characteristics of Vietnamese language into the processing, on the other hand. Examples in various tasks of language processing will illustrate those issues and challenges.

Author attribution with email messages
Author: Dr. Dominique Estival, University of Sydney, Australia
Abstract:
In this talk, I will give an overview of a research project which resulted in the development of a prototype tool for author attribution (TAT). The tool was trained on two email corpora (English and Arabic) and produces probabilities for the basic demographic traits (gender, age, geographic origin, level of education and native language) and some psychometric traits of the author of a text. The system also provides the probability of a match between a given email and other texts. I will describe the overall system and its components and outline the ways in which the email data is processed and analysed, before describing the Machine Learning setup used to produce the classifiers for the different author traits. I will conclude by presenting the experimental results, which are promising for most traits examined.

New Opportunities in Software Engineering
Author: Prof. Mathai Joseph, Tata Consultancy Services, Pune, India
Abstract: Software engineering has changed greatly over the past decade as the field has been divided between software systems designed for embedded applications, for large-scale software systems and for software intended for use in large computing utilities spread out over multiple geographic locations. This gives fresh opportunities for the application of formal methods and they can now be effectively used for all aspects of embedded software and for improving the quality of critical areas of large-scale systems. In this talk, I will give examples of how formal methods are now used in industrial software engineering and the possibilities that arise for their future use.

Agent Oriented Software Engineering: Why and How?
Author: Prof. Lin Padgham, RMIT University, Australia
Abstract:
Intelligent agents are a new paradigm for developing a wide range of software systems. Just as object oriented programming is at a higher level of abstraction than procedural programming, so agent oriented is at a higher abstraction level than object oriented. This facilitates faster and easier development of more complex systems, than is possible with a less powerful paradigm. Some research has shown that efficiency gains of more than 300 oriented approach to development.
