Attendance and presentation  

1. Absence does not affect publication in the CD, it only affects submission and placement in I-Xplore (about 6 to 12 months after the conference).

2. Authors who find it impossible to attend but still wish their paper to be submitted to I-Xplore must upload their Presentation file to EDAS for presentation by a substitute presenter to approve submission to I-Xplore. The author must explain the reasons for absence in the first slide after the title slide with the name and email address of head of department or professor to confirm and support the reasons.

3. Authors who state they will attend but do not show up will not have the proceedings CD sent to them nor will their paper be submitted to I-Xplore.

4. The presentation program must be accurate to avoid time waste.

 

IEEE-Xplore: a paper will not be submitted to IEEE-Xplore if it suffers from one or more of the following problems:

1. Below average English,

2. Excessive number of citations to the authors own work in References,

3. Little interaction with EE and Computing,

4. Not within the conference scope or has not followed the Template,

5. Author did not offer valid reasons for not attending, or did not upload to EDAS the presentation file (for committee review and substitute presenter), or both.

The SpiNNaker Project: Past, Present and Future?

 

Prof Steve Furber/Dr Simon Davidson

 

Senior Research Fellow

Advance Processor Technologies Group

School of Computer Science, The University of Manchester, UK.

Email: simon.davidson@manchester.ac.uk

 

SpiNNaker was developed at The University of Manchester as a massively-parallel yet low-power architecture optimised for the simulation of spiking neural networks of cortical scale. The project is ongoing, with software development and platform maintenance currently supported by the EU-funded Human Brain Project (HBP).

In this talk, I will provide a quick reminder of the goals and key design features of SpiNNaker before bringing you up to speed on the current state of the project, covering both the physical construction of a one million processor SpiNNaker toroid within our department and the software stack that allows users to remotely submit jobs to access time on this computing resource. SpiNNaker is now being used by researchers all over the world - and not just for spiking neural networks! I will talk about what we and others have been doing with SpiNNaker and where we expect these ideas to lead.

In the final part of the talk, I will look to the future of SpiNNaker, putting it in context with other neuromorphic platforms that have emerged in recent years. I will conclude with a peek at how the lessons we have learned from SpiNNaker are being used to design our next generation SpiNNaker-2 chip, in collaboration with TU Dresden.

 

Biography

 

simon_davidson_headshotSimon Davidson (BEng 1989, PhD 1999) has been a Research Fellow in the Advanced Processor Technologies Group (APT) within the School of Computer Science at the University of Manchester since 2009 and has contributed to the development of the original SpiNNaker chip as well as the subsequent software stack and spiking neural applications.

Graduating in Electronic Engineering from the University of Sheffield (UK) in 1989, he began a PhD in neural networks before relegating this to a part-time activity to become an RA developing SoCs for image processing. He spent ten years in industry: in the early 1990s at SGS-Thomson he worked on their Chameleon project, helping to develop a 64-bit superscalar processor for set top boxes. After a few years at Hewlett Packard and after finally finishing his PhD, he returned to the UK to join ARC International (a small London-based processor IP start-up) where he led the development of the ARC-TangentA5 processor and co-developed the ARCompact instruction set.

His doctoral research into neural memory took him back to academia in 2005, with time at York University leading to his current position at Manchester. Currently employed on an EU-funded ERC Advanced grant held by Prof Steve Furber, his main research interest include the development of large spiking neural networks implementing high capacity associative memory that is both robust and reliable and the mechanisms for both representation and computation using simple spikes.

Dynamic Interpolative Modelling and its Application to Intrusion Detection

 

Prof Qiang Shen

 

Director, Institute of Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science

Aberystwyth University, Wales, UK.

Email: qqs@aber.ac.uk

 

Intrusion detection systems (IDSs) are considered as a popular and effective security tool for generating alerts to network administrators, in order to inform possible or existing threats. A standard IDS may not be very effective or even unsuitable for an organisational requirements over a sustained period. This talk will present an application of D-FRI for building an effective IDS. In particular, it will introduce an intelligent IDS that is built upon the most popular open source IDS, Snort via integration with D-FRI. The talk will illustrate the results that the integration of D-FRI with Snort provides an additional level of intelligence in predicting possible threats. This integration also facilitates dynamic modelling, in terms of a dynamic fuzzy rule base, by promoting new rules based on the current network traffic conditions, helping Snort to reduce both false positives and false negatives.

Beyond Big Data Scalability: Bringing High-Performance Analytics to Processing Hardware

 

 

Dr Zaid Al-Ars

 

Associate Professor, Computer Engineering Lab

Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands.

Email: Z.Al-Ars@tudelft.nl

 

 

Big data computing is rapidly becoming the approach of choice for many scientific and commercial applications in business analytics, bioinformatics, deep learning, etc. This is due to the high-level of abstraction provided by big data frameworks that allows developers to shorten development time of powerful programs able to process vast amount of data on large computer clusters. This ease-of-development adds much overhead to the compute infrastructure and prevents fine-grain cluster optimizations and efficient control of compute resources. However, the changing big data landscape is witnessing an aggressive expansion of the target big data application domains, with new applications serving the needs of the scientific and research community as well as other users interested in running optimized high-performance workloads, stretching the computational resources to their limits. This talk discusses the sources of large overheads incurred by mainstream big data frameworks, and how these overheads prevent the applications developed for the high-performance computing domain from being effectively ported to these frameworks. We also discuss methods to bridge this difference in performance by bringing high-level big data frameworks closer to the computing hardware, thereby enabling integration of heterogeneous computing devices, such as FPGAs, GPUs and DSPs, into the big data framework. This offers the potential to increase system utilization in large computing clusters, in addition to increasing performance, thereby achieving the cost and power efficiency needed for compute-intensive big data applications.
