Date & time: Wednesday January 11th, 2011 @ 8:30 am

Dr. Wu Chou

IEEE Fellow
Chief IT Scientist
Head of Huawei Shannon Lab


Short Bio:  Dr. Wu Chou is Chief IT Scientist and Head of Huawei Shannon (IT) Lab, Huawei Technologies Co., LTD. He is an IEEE Fellow, a renowned expert in the field of IT, Web/Internet, communication, Cloud, and enterprise services. He has over 20+ years of successful professional career in leading R&D organizations. Before joining Huawei, he was Director of R&D at Avaya. He graduated from Stanford University in 1990 with four advanced degrees in science and engineering. He joined AT&T Bell Labs after graduated from Stanford, and continued his career in Lucent Bell Labs and Avaya Labs before joining Huawei. In his new role at Huawei, he leads the global Huawei Shannon (IT) Lab for its research and innovation in the fast moving IT area. He has extensive experience and knowledge in cutting-edge technology research, incubating ground breaking products, visionary technical leadership, and agile execution in product development. He served as an editor for multiple standards at W3C, ECMA, ISO, ETSI, etc. He is an editor of IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC), IEEE TSC Special Issue on Cloud Computing, and Journal of Web Services Research. He published over 140 journal and conference papers, holds 24 US and international patents with many additional patent applications pending. He received Bell Laboratories President’s Gold Award for his achievement in 1997 and Avaya Leadership Award in 2005.
Keynote Title: Internet, Web, and Cloud for Next Generation IT

Information technology (IT) is the acquisition, processing, storage, and dissemination of vocal, pictorial, textual, and numerical information by a combination of computing and telecommunications. Internet, Web, and Cloud are three main driving forces that reshape the landscape of IT. This transformation in IT has profound impact to how we process the information and provide information services for service providers, enterprises, and consumers. This in turn becomes the root source of innovations and advances for Internet, Web, and Cloud. 

In this talk, I will introduce some recent advances in Internet, Web, and Cloud. In particular, I will describe the new technologies introduced in HTML5, the development of RTC Web (Realtime Communication Web) at W3C and IETF, and “Edge Cloud”, a new development for next generation Cloud. Moreover, I will discuss the impacts of these new developments to IT, Internet, Web, and Cloud, as they open a new paradigm for technologists, researchers, application developers, enterprises, service providers, consumers, and business entrepreneurs.


Keynote 2:

Date & time: Thursday January 12th, 2011 @ 8:30 am

Vijay Bhargava

IEEE ComSoc President &
Professor at UBC, Canada

Short Bio: Vijay Bhargava, an IEEE Volunteer for three decades, is Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, where he served as Department Head during 2003-2008. Previously he was with the University of Victoria (1984-2003) and Concordia University (1976-84). He received his Ph.D. from Queen’s University in 1974. He is a fellow of the IEEE, the Royal Society of Canada, the Canadian Academy of Engineering and the Engineering Institute of Canada

Vijay has served on the Board of Governors of the IEEE Information Theory Society and the IEEE Communications Society. He has held important positions in these societies and has organized conferences such as ISIT’83, ISIT’95, ICC’99 and VTC 2002 Fall. He played a major role in the creation of the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, and served as its editor-in-chief during 2007, 2008 and 2009. He is a past President of the IEEE Information Theory Society and has been elected to serve as IEEE Communications Society President-Elect during 2011 and as President during 2012 and 2013.



Keynote Title: Green Cellular Networks: A Survey, Some Research Issues and Challenges


In this talk, we present techniques to enable green communications in future generation of wireless systems that will rely on cooperation and cognition to meet increasing demand of high data rate. So far, achieving high data rate has been the primary focus of research in cooperative and CR systems, without much consideration of energy efficiency. However, many of these techniques significantly increase system complexity and energy consumption. Escalating energy costs and environmental concerns have already created an urgent need for more energy-efficient “green” wireless communications. Therefore, we need to design energy-efficient solutions for cooperative and cognitive networks, which will potentially drive the future generation of wireless communication. We focus on several important topics that are crucial towards reducing the energy consumption of the cognitive and cooperative networks. These topics include efficient base station redesign, heterogeneous network deployment, green communications via cognitive radio, cooperative relays to deliver green communications, and energy efficient cognitive cooperative networks.
