He is also an inventor of 7 patents (3 US patents), some of which were commercialized. Dr Jiang is a senior member of IEEE and has been serving as Editorial Board Member,Guest Editor and Reviewer of multiple international journals, and serving as Program Committee Chair, Keynote Speaker and Session Chair of multiple international conferences. His research interest includes pattern recognition, computer vision, machine learning, image analysis, signal/image processing, machine learning and biometrics.

Keynote Speaker III

Prof. Dimitrios Georgakopoulos, Swinburne University of Technology, Australia

Prof. Georgakopoulos is the Director of the Key IoT Lab at the Digital Innovation Platform of Swinburne University of Technology. Before that was Research Director at CSIRO’s ICT Centre and Executive Director of the Information Engineering Laboratory, which was the largest Computer Science program in Australia.  Before CSIRO, he held research and management positions in several industrial laboratories in the US, including Telcordia Technologies (where he helped found two of Telcordia’s Research Centers in Austin, Texas, and Poznan, Poland); Microelectronics and Computer Corporation (MCC) in Austin, Texas; GTE (currently Verizon) Laboratories in Boston, Massachusetts; and Bell Communications Research in Piscataway, New Jersey. He was also a full Professor at RMIT University, and he is currently an Adjunct Prof. at the Australian National University and a CSIRO Adjunct Fellow. Prof. Georgakopoulos is an internationally known expert in IoT, process management, and data management. He has received 20+ industry and academic awards. His 170+ journal and conference publications, which include three seminal papers in the areas Service Computing, Workflow Management, Context Management for the Internet of Things (IoT), have received 12,400+ citations. Dimitrios’ research has attracted significant external research funding ($35M+) from various industry and government research funding agencies, ranging from DARPA and ARDA in the USA, to the Framework Program in the EU, to the Department of Human Services and 50+ industry partners in Australia.

Speech title: From Internet Scale Sensing to Smart Services and Products

Abstract:  The Internet of Things (IoT) is the latest Internet evolution that incorporates billions of Internet-connected devices that range from cameras, sensors, RFIDs, smart phones, and wearables, to smart meters, vehicles, medication pills, and industrial machines. Such IoT things are often owned by different organizations and people who are deploying and using them for their own purposes. Federations of such IoT devices (often referred to as IoT things) can also deliver timely and accurate information that is needed to solve internet-scale problems that have been too difficult to tackle before.

To realize its enormous potential, IoT must provide IoT solutions for discovering needed IoT devices, collecting and integrating their data, distilling the high value information each application needs and doing these securely, on the move, and in the cloud/edge. Such IoT solutions must be capable of filtering, aggregating, correlating, and contextualising IoT information in real-time, on the move, in the cloud. In this talk we present an overview of IoT solutions we have developed to address these technical challenges and help springboard IoT to its potential. In this talk we mainly focus on open source components and standards we have developed jointly with other prominent international collaborators. We also describe a variety of IoT applications that have utilized our solutions to provide smart IoT services in the areas of smart farming, energy, manufacturing, cities, heath and proximity marketing. Finally, we discuss ongoing research for the next generation IoT infrastructure.

Keynote Speaker IV

Prof. Ma Maode, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore

Prof. Maode Ma received his BE degree in computer engineering from Tsinghua University in 1982, ME degree in computer engineering from Tianjin University in 1991 and Ph.D. degree in computer science from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 1999. 

Dr. Ma is a tenured Associate Professor in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. He has extensive research interests including wireless networking, wireless network security and optical networking, etc. He has been a member of the technical program committee for more than 110 international conferences. He has been a technical track chair, tutorial chair, publication chair, and session chair for more than 50 international conferences. Dr. Ma has published more than 130 international academic research papers on wireless networks and optical networks. He currently serves as an Associate Editor for IEEE Communications Letters, an Editor for IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials, and an Associate Editor for International Journal of Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing, Journal of Network and Computer Applications, Security and Communication Networks, International Journal of Vehicular Technology, Journal of Computer Systems, Networks, and Communications, and International Journal of Computing & Information Technology.

Speech title: Efficient and Secure Authentication Schemes for IEEE 802.11ah Networks

Abstract: IEEE 802.11ah, a specification belonging to 802.11 wireless local area network (WLAN) protocol family, has been recently released to support the long-range, low-power and low-rate wireless communication among smart devices used in Internet of Thing (IoT) systems. However, security requirements of the energy-constrained devices have plenty of issues different from the traditional wireless devices. It requires that the lightweight security protocols have to support low-power and low-latency as well as the long-lasting features of quantities of IoT devices. The recently released IEEE statndard, IEEE 802.11ai has specified a Fast Initial Link Setup (FILS), which is a brand-new approach aiming at establishing fast, stable and secure links among smart devices. IEEE 802.11ai could be applied to other wireless systems, such as the wireless system of IEEE 802.11ah with security enhancements. In this talk, I would address the secureity issues of IEEE 802.11ai and IEEE 802.11ah with new proposals to enhance the authentication process in the link setup procedure.
