IEEE Region 8 MD Subcommittee Member
IEEE Latvia Section Vice-Chairperson
IEEE is the world's largest professional association with 130 years long history, uniting engineers and scientists to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. It has about 430,000 members in about 160 countries, more than 80,000 of them are students. IEEE and its members inspire a global community through IEEE's highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities.
The welcome speech will give a general overview of the IEEE, how it is organized both in geographic and technical aspects (based on these members' living place and fields of interests). With some quick facts about IEEE, the important role that IEEE plays in its designated fields of interests (i.e., all technical fields rooted in electrical and computer sciences, engineering and related disciplines) will become apparent. After the general introduction to IEEE, we will continue with IEEE Region 8 (i.e., Europe, Middle East, and Africa) activities, with the focus on IEEE Latvia Section, which is one of the Regions’ 56 Sections. We will see how the Region and the Section are organized and how many volunteers work to support the members and the geographic units on the local level.
The rough content of the speech will be as follows: (i) IEEE in general: history, mission, vision, organization; quick facts, membership trends. (ii) A closer look at Region 8: history, mission, vision; membership, structure; Region 8 Committee, organization. (iii) Quick facts about IEEE Latvia Section. (iv) Selected activities in Region 8 and Latvia Section.

Computer Evolution over the Next Decade: Fact or Fiction?
Prof. Frank Wang
Head of School of Computing, University of Kent
Chair, IEEE Computer Society, UKRI Chapter
Computers evolve fast and the processing power doubles every two years by Moore's Law. That would mean computers 10 years from now would be 32 times more powerful than the current models. In 2005, Moore said that as transistors reach the atomic scale we may encounter fundamental barrier we can't cross. We may get around that barrier by building a computer that works similarly to the human brain. However, most of previous efforts to build brain-like computers have failed because it took about the same silicon area to emulate a CMOS synapse as that needed to emulate a neuron. In theory, any realistic implementation of a synapse should ideally be at least four orders of magnitude smaller than that required to build a neuron. The invention of the memristor opens a new way to implement synapses. A memristor is a simple 2-terminal element, which means a vast number of memristors could be integrated together with other CMOS elements, in a single chip.
In 2004, he was appointed as Chair & Professor, Director of Centre for Grid Computing at CCHPCF (Cambridge-Cranfield High Performance Computing Facility). CCHPCF is a collaborative research facility in the Universities of Cambridge and Cranfield (with an investment size of £40 million). Prof Wang and his team have won an ACM/IEEE Super Computing finalist award. Prof Wang was elected as the Chairman (UK & Republic of Ireland Chapter) of the IEEE Computer Society in 2005. He is Fellow of British Computer Society. He has served the Irish Government High End Computing Panel for Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) and the UK Government EPSRC e-Science Panel.

Approximate Feature Selection in Data-Driven Systems Modelling
Prof Qiang Shen
Director, Institute of Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science
Aberystwyth University, Wales, UK.
Feature selection (FS) addresses the problem of selecting those system descriptors that are most predictive of a given outcome. Unlike other dimensionality reduction methods, with FS the original meaning of the features is preserved. This has found application in tasks that involve datasets containing very large numbers of features that might otherwise be impractical to model and process (e.g., large-scale image analysis, text processing and Web content classification).
This talk will focus on the development and application of approximate FS mechanisms based on rough and fuzzy-rough theories. Such techniques provide a means by which data can be effectively reduced without the need for user-supplied information. In particular, fuzzy-rough feature selection (FRFS) works with discrete and real-valued noisy data (or a mixture of both). As such, it is suitable for regression as well as for classification. The only additional information required is the fuzzy partition for each feature, which can be automatically derived from the data. FRFS has been shown to be a powerful technique for data dimensionality reduction. In introducing the general background of FS, this talk will first cover the rough-set-based approach, before focusing on FRFS and its application to real-world problems. The talk will conclude with an outline of opportunities for further development.
Professor Qiang Shen received a PhD in Knowledge-Based Systems and a DSc in Computational Intelligence. He holds the Established Chair of Computer Science and is Director of the Institute of Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science at Aberystwyth University. He is a Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales, a UK REF 2014 panel member for Computer Science and Informatics, and a long-serving Associate Editor of two IEEE flagship Journals (IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics and on Fuzzy Systems). He has chaired and given keynotes at numerous international conferences.
Professor Shen’s current research interests include: computational intelligence, reasoning under uncertainty, pattern recognition, qualitative modelling and simulation, and their real-world applications for intelligent decision support (e.g., crime detection, consumer profiling, systems monitoring, and medical diagnosis). He has authored 2 research monographs and over 340 peer-reviewed papers, including an award-winning IEEE Outstanding Transactions paper. Qiang has served as the first supervisor of about 50 PDRAs/PhDs, including one UK Distinguished Dissertation Award winner.

Circuit Switching Versus Packet Switching
Prof M. A. Sneps-Sneppe
Ventspils University College, Inženieru st. 10, Ventspils, LV-3601 Latvia
Communication specialists around the world are facing the same problem: shifting from circuit switching (CS) to packet switching (CS). Communication service providers are favoring “All-over-IP” technologies hoping to boost their profits by providing multimedia services. However, this drive for profit is tempered by life itself.
We discuss the telecommunications development strategies. In order to study how the capacity of links and switches will scale in the future, one needs to understand the evolution trends of the underlying technologies used in routers and circuit switches. This enables one to foresee where bottlenecks might occur. The first potential bottleneck is the memory system, the second one is information processing. The key question is: will the packet-switched IP network grow to dominate and displace the circuit switched transport network; or will the (enhanced) circuit-switched TDM and optical switches continue to dominate the core transport network?
We will provide examples to illustrate the difficulties that complicate the transition from CS to PS and make us question the feasibility of shifting the telecommunications paradigm at all: (1) The emergence of new trends in microelectronics: the construction of network-on-a-chip (NoC) oriented towards PS, where a return to SC is observed; (2) The telecom strategy: to use PS in the edges of the network and CS at the core of the network: (3) The development of the global information grid (GIG) - the U.S. DoD information network, the world's largest departmental network, analyzing difficulties that complicate the GIG transition from CS to PS, which is still based on SS7 signaling and an intelligent network.
Professor M. Sneps-Sneppe is a Leading Researcher at Ventspils University College, Latvia. His research focus is on telecommunications software development, hobby relates to Russian history. He is (co-)author of 11 books and numerous scientific papers.
Education: 1959 Degree in Math, Latvia University, Riga, 1965 Postgrad in Probability & Statistics, Moscow State University. 1965 Med Engineer candidate, All-Union Med. Engineer Research Institute, Moscow. 1969 PhD in Telecommunications, Moscow Institute of Telecommunications. 1992 Dr Habil Sc Ing, Riga Technical University, Latvia. His bio can be seen in ‘Who is Who in the World’ 2010.
