IEEE Student Members Travel Grants: a limited number of travel bursaries are available for partial support of travel expenses to attend the conference to present the paper, contact the general chair david.al-dabass@ntu.ac.uk

 

Attendance and presentation  

1. Non-attendance does not affect publication in the CD, it only affects submission to 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 review by the committee to approve submission to I-Xplore. The presentation file must include the reasons and explanation for non attendance in the first slide after the title slide.

3. Authors who confirm their intention to attend and present 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.

 

I-Xplore: a paper will not be submitted to I-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 Template,

5. Author did not offer Valid reasons for not attending or not submitted the presentation file (for committee review) or both.

Keynote Speaker-1, Day-1

Deep Learning Computer for Modern Simulation & Modelling
 
Prof Frank Wang
 
Head of School of Computing, University of Kent
Canterbury, UK
Chair, IEEE Computer Society, UKRI Chapter
Email: frankwang@ieee.org
 
Deep learning was inspired by the 1981 Nobel Prize work by David H. Hubel & Torsten Wiesel, who found a cascading model in the human brain. We are building a computer that works similarly to the human brain and could be useful for modern simulation and modelling. 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 brain-like machine.

CCHPCF is a collaborative research facility in the Universities of Cambridge and Cranfield (with an investment size of Sterling 40 million). Prof Wang and his team have won an ACM/IEEE Super Computing finalist award. Prof Wang is Chairman (UK & Republic of Ireland Chapter) of the IEEE Computer Society and Fellow of British Computer Society.

 

Keynote Speaker-2

Big Data and System Simulation for Analysis and Decision Support in Health Care Systems

 

Dr Nikolas Popper

 

Director DEXHELPP, Decision Support for Health Policy and Planning, Vienna.

Coordinator, Centre for Computational Complex Systems, TU Wien.

CSO dwh GmbH, Simulation Services and Technical Solutions, Vienna.

 

 

National health systems invest annually more billions of Euros (or Dollars). While the demand for health services increases (as a result of demographic change), the resources are limited. This creates a need for the development of new methods, models and technologies in order to support the analysing, planning and controlling of health care systems. Up to now decision support in health care systems is mainly based on the evidence of studies, that have a smaller range and not on the analysis of big data sets. But quantity and quality of available data strongly increases and therefore facilitates the description and analysis of all areas in health care systems.

To provide state of the art Health Technology Assessment (HTA), Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) and Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) we will need to combine health system domain knowledge, knowledge of professional data processes and, last but not leas, mathematical modelling & simulation skills. The areas of data security & data management, big data analysis, machine and deep learning, statistical methods, mathematical modelling & simulation and visualisation as well as public health & decision analytics modelling should help us to transform Big Data into Deep D ata: evidence based, reproducible knowledge.

To bring together all technologies still is a huge challenge. Data Based Demographic models have to be combined with analysis and models for the spreading of diseases. Time dependent treatment paths have to be parametrized with data sets from clinical routine joined with large scale health system data. From the system simulation point of view an important aspect is the possibility to implement changes inside the system, like interventions inside the computer model, and to analyse their effects. N. Popper tries to point out how big interdisciplinary teams will handle the complex processes in the future and which methods are and arenot promising.

Dynamic Interpolative Modelling and its Application to Network Security

 

Prof Qiang Shen

 

Director, Institute of Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science

Aberystwyth University, Wales, UK.

Email: qqs@aber.ac.uk

 

 

Application of fuzzy rule-based interpolative (FRI) modelling has been escalating for making intelligent systems viable in solving many challenging real-world problems. However, requirements of such systems may change over time and the supporting static rule models may not be able to provide accurate interpolation results in the long run. Dynamic fuzzy rule interpolation (D-FRI) offers a potential solution to such problems. A particular application is for network security that is often one of the biggest concerns of any organisation irrespective of their size and nature of business.

Intrusion detection systems (IDSs) are a popular and effective security tool for generating alerts to network administrators, in order to inform against possible or existing threats. A standard IDS may be not 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 how 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. The talk will also cover other applications of D-FRI in network security and thoughts for further development.

Simulation Strategies for Tissue Photonics

 

Prof Kelvin Donne

 

University of Wales Trinity Saint David

Swansea Campus, Mount Pleasant

Swansea SA1 6ED

kelvin.donne@uwtsd.ac.uk

 

Light-based medical devices are used in a diverse range of diagnostic and therapeutic modalities, both within the clinical context and increasingly for home-based use. Of critical concern to manufacturers of these devices is the requirement to understand the underlying processes and especially the need to optimise the energy delivery, both spectrally and temporally.

This paper will consider the simulation techniques available for modelling both the bio-chemical and thermal effects induced when light is incident on human tissue. Deterministic and probabilistic schemes for solving the Radiation Transfer Equation for low-energy photons will be considered, as well as methods for solving the time-dependent thermal diffusion equation. Optimisation studies require fast parallel implementations of the algorithms, which include the Monte Carlo method and Boundary Element Method and three approaches to parallelisation will be presented. Clinical contexts will include fluorescence detection of basal cell carcinomas, and depilation of hair follicles.
