LEARN MORE ABOUT Session on Social Comping and Cloud 2017

The “Cloud” is a natural evolution of distributed computing and of the widespread adaption of virtualization and SOA. Social computing is a new cross-discipline that covers the science and technology needed to bridge the gap between Social networking services and IT services.

Social computing and networking is concerned with the intersection of social behaviour and computing systems, creating or recreating social conventions and contexts through the use of software and technology. Various social computing applications such as blogs, email, instant messaging, social networking (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ etc.), wikis, and social bookmarking have been widely popularised by providing digital platforms for social interaction. Such applications have been profoundly change social behaviours and digital life styles of humankind whilst pushing the boundaries of Internet technologies. While people can enjoy or even indulge in the benefits such as freedom and convenience brought about by social computing, various critical issues such as trust, privacy, HCI design, and the modelling as well as understanding of social behaviours via computational means provide significant challenges.

 

In Cloud computing, IT-related capabilities and resources are provided as services, via the Internet and on-demand, accessible without requiring detailed knowledge of the underlying technology. The goal of social computing is to develop new computing technology and thereby enable more advanced IT social networking services to support business services more efficiently and effectively. The session on Social Computing and Cloud is an important forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange information regarding advancements in the state of art and practice of IT-driven cloud computing technologies and social networking services, as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future directions of cloud and Social Networking.

Standardisation in Big Data: Innovation and Excellence
This talk will highlight some of the European and Global Initiatives which are driving ICT Standards and in particular the Big Data Reference Architecture (BDRA). Standard. A brief history of Big Data standards evolution will lead to an introduction to the main SDO's in Europe and their roles. The talk will include sample uses cases for the Big Data Reference architecture and how they are used to identify and define big data roles, activities, functional components and their relationships. A description of the types of functional components leveraged by the roles and how they interact to create an operational big data architecture will be presented and show how this Reference architecture can facilitate a shared understanding across multiple products, organisations, and disciplines about current architectures and future direction.
11:15 - 12:00 Dr. Victor Chang
IoT security– overview, recommendations and the IoT Security Framework

Internet of Things (IoT) plays significant role in our daily life, including smart city, mobile services, wireless senor networks, big data analytics and emerging services. Despite of promising future of IoT, security and privacy still pose threats its development due to several vulnerabilities and privacy issues exploited. In this keynote, the overview and recommendation on current security solutions, such as location privacy, attribute-based encryption, ad hoc network security, light-weight authentication, identify management and intrusion detection will be covered. While currently there is no a IoT framework that can integrate all different security solutions as an unified service, the developed IoT security framework has integrated major security services and solutions together, known as integrated multi-layered security, to ensure the robustness and validity of the reliable IoT Security Framework. Technologies and architecture behind the framework will be explained in details. Large scale penetration testing and ethical hacking have been performed to demonstrate that IoT Security Framework is live, resilient and beneficial, making important research and enterprise contributions

09:30 - 10:15 Prof. Mohamed JEMNI
Toward Empowering Mobile Applications Development in the Arab World

Recent stats from the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) unveiled that mobile broadband is the fastest-growing ICT service in history, and around 4 billion of the global mobile phone population have Internet access using their mobile devices. In light of these considerations, there is no doubt that mobile technologies are entirely changing our lives, including particularly the way we learn. Therefore, recognizing the potentials of mobile technologies and its status in the region, the Arab League Educational, Cultural, and Scientific Organization (ALECSO), has proposed a Pan-Arab wide mobile initiative, aiming to empower Mobile Applications development in the Arab word.  The project aims to provide developers with a necessary technological and institutional environment for the promotion of an emerging digital creative Arab Mobile industry, related to the fields of education, culture, science, and learning games. In this talk, we will present an overview of the AlecsoApps project and we will describe each of its component and related activities.

10:15 - 11:00 Prof.Dr. Brahim Hnich
Smart Big Data applications for road traffic security, social online shopping, and online education

In this talk, our objective is to present three diverse cases studies of smart Big Data applications: a smart online vehicle tracking system for security applications, a social online shopping system,  and an online educational platform. For each application, we outline its main features and highlight the main challenges. We then how how we can  model and implemented these applications as Big Data applications and show how one can use the data collected in order to automatically discover new knowledge that brings more value to the users of these applications.
