Biomechanical Analyses of Human Movement Aimed at Improving Rehabilitation Outcomes
Richard Neptune, University of Texas at Austin – Abstract: The human neuromusculoskeletal system is exceedingly complex due to highly nonlinear multi-body dynamics and musculotendon actuators, and redundant muscle control that isn’t well understood. As a result, gaining insight into normal and pathological movement remains a…
Comprehending Energy Behaviors of Java I/O APIs
Gustavo Pinto , Federal University of Pará, Brazil. – Abstract: APIs that implement I/O operations are the building blocks of many well-known, non-trivial software systems. These APIs are used for a great variety of programming tasks, from simple file management operations, to database communications and…
Seminar – Personhood Online: Identification-Free Identities and Digital Citizenship via Proof-of-Presence
Bryan Ford, EPFL – École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne – Abstract: Numerous fundamental weaknesses of our online ecosystem derive from its inability to distinguish securely between real people and fake identities. Social botnets, fake news, anonymous trolling, astroturfing, deep fakes, sock puppetry, online poll and…
‘Gielis Transformations in design and engineering’
Johan Gielis, University of Antwerp, Bio-Engineering Sciences – Abstract: Gielis Transformations in design and engineering Gielis’ Transformations (a.k.a.

“Photovoltaic Optiverter – A Novel Hybrid MLPE Technology for Residential and Small Commercial Photovoltaic Applications“ by Dmitri Vinnikov
Dmitri Vinnikov, – Abstract: Abstract: In this presentation a novel approach to photovoltaic (PV) module level power electronics called OPTIVERTER (PVOPT) will be introduced and discussed. Functionally, it is a hybrid of PV power optimizer and PV microinverter with such key features as shade-tolerant (or…
Algorithm/Architecture Co-design for Smart Signals and Systems in Cognitive Cloud/Edge
Gwo Giun Chris Lee, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) – Abstract: Niklaus Emil Wirth introduced the innovative idea that Programming = Algorithm + Data Structure. Inspired by this, we advance the concept to the next level by stating that Design = Algorithm + Architecture. With…
Conflict-free Replicated Data Types: An Overview
Nuno Manuel Ribeiro Preguiça, Universidade Nova de Lisboa – Abstract: Internet-scale distributed systems often replicate data at multiple geographic locations to provide low latency and high availability, despite node and network failures. Geo-replicated systems that adopt a weak consistency model allow replicas to temporarily diverge,…
BADA – Big Automotive Data Analytics
Ahmad Al-Shishtawy, RISE Research Institutes of Sweden – Abstract: The BADA project fuses big data analytics with the automotive industry in Sweden. It is a collaboration between RISE SICS, Volvo cars, Volvo trucks, Scania, and the Swedish Transport Agency. The goal of the project is…
InfraComposer: Policy-driven Adaptive and Reflective Middleware for the cloudification of Simulation and Optimization Workflows
Bert Lagaisse, Imec-DistriNet Research Group, KU Leuven – Abstract: We present motivating scenarios as well as an architecture for adaptive and reflective middleware that supports smart cloud-based deployment and execution of en- gineering workflows. This middleware supports deep inspection of the work- flow task structure…
Sketching as an engine of research and development thinking
Anna Lobovikov-Katz, Technion – Abstract: Sketching is a natural way to communicate ideas quickly: with only a few pencil strokes, complex shapes can be evoked in viewers. Freehand sketching is well-known for its contribution to the development of spatial-visual ability, which is a must for…
