Timely, Reliable, and Cost-Effective Internet Transport Service using Structured Overlay Networks
Yair Amir , Johns Hopkins University – Abstract: Emerging applications such as remote manipulation and remote robotic surgery require communication that is both timely and reliable, but the Internet natively supports only communication that is either completely reliable with no timeliness guarantees (e.g. TCP) or…
Artificial sociality- modelling the social mind
Gert Jan Hofstede, Wageningen Universiteit – Abstract: Gert Jan will discuss ‘artificial sociality’, the subject for which he was recently appointed professor. It is about foundational conceptual models of human sociality based on social science, for use in agent-based models of complex systems in the…
HOOVER: Distributed, Flexible, and Scalable Streaming Graph Processing on OpenSHMEM
Max Grossman, RICE UNIVERSITY – Abstract: Many problems can benefit from being phrased as a graph processing or graph analytics problem: infectious disease modeling, insider threat detection, fraud prevention, social network analysis, and more. These problems all share a common property: the relationships between entities…
On the Self in Selfie
Christoph Kirsch, University of Salzburg – Abstract: Selfie is a self-contained 64-bit, 10-KLOC implementation of (1) a self-compiling compiler written in a tiny subset of C called C* targeting a tiny subset of 64-bit RISC-V called RISC-U, (2) a self-executing RISC-U emulator, (3) a self-hosting…
The Future of Cyber-autonomy
David Brumley , Carnegie Mellon University – Abstract: My vision is to automatically check and defend the world’s software from exploitable bugs. In order to achieve this vision, I am building technology, called Mayhem, that shifts the attack/defend game away from the current manual approaches…
Improved Maximum Likelihood Decoding using sparse Parity-Check Matrices
Tobias Dietz, Technische Universität Kaiserslautern – Abstract: Maximum-likelihood decoding is an important and powerful tool in communications to obtain the optimal performance of a channel code. Unfortunately, simulating the maximum-likelihood performance of a code is a hard problem whose complexity grows exponentially with the blocklength…
Efficient paths in ordinal weighted graphs
Luca Schafer, Technische Universität Kaiserslautern – Abstract: We investigate the single-source-single-destination “shortest” paths problem in acyclic graphs with ordinal weighted arc costs. We define the concepts of ordinal dominance and efficiency for paths and their associated ordinal levels, respectively. Further, we show that the number…
Crypto-hardware design for secure applications
Erica Tena-Sánchez F. E. Potestad-Ordóñez , University of Seville – Abstract: Any electronic devices considered ‘secure’, and in fact any electronic device handling relevant information, make use of cryptographic services to ensure confidentiality, authentication and integrity of the processed data. These cryptographic engines implement mathematically…
Interactive Systems based on Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Pedro Lopes, University of Chicago – Abstract: How can interactive devices connect with users in the most immediate and intimate way? This question has driven interactive computing for decades. If we think back to the early days of computing, user and device were quite distant,…
State-of-the-Art FinFET Technology: An Industry Designer’s Perspective
Gonçalo Nogueira, Socionext, Inc – Abstract: Size scaling of CMOS transistors has been happening for the past 30 years, with technologies like FinFET or FD-SOI being used recently to make up for limitations found in Bulk technology. With TSMC releasing 5nm FinFET in 2019 (with…

IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation (ICST) 2020 will take place between the 24th and 28th of October at Alfândega Porto Congress Centre, in Porto.
ICST 2020 aims to supply a common forum for researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners all over the world to present their latest research findings, ideas, developments and applications in the area of Software Testing, Verification and Validation.
Energy Virtual Experience – EVEx 2020
The event “Energy Virtual Experience” ( EVEx 2020) will take place online, from October 26 to 30.
“Energy Virtual Experience” will provide 4 different interactive experiences: EVEx Talks, EVEx MasterClass, EVEx Academy, and EVEx Expo/Busines. These four experiences will be centered on “Ibero-American post-pandemic energy transition”.
Looking to stimulate interdisciplinary studies and innovative solutions in energy area, call for papers and projects will be launched soon.
INESC-ID researcher and IST Professor, Rui Castro, is member of the scientific committee of EVEx 2020.
