Seidenberg organizes important HPCC conference for this month

IEEEPace University Seidenberg Computer Science (CS) Department at Westchester is organizing the 17th IEEE HPCC 2015 (IEEE High Performance Computing and Communications) conference that will be held on Aug. 24- 26, 2015 at the Hilton Newark Airport Hotel, NJ. Faculty member Dr. Meikang Qiu from the CS Department at Westchester is its General Chair, and Pace University’s CS-PhD students and faculty will present a dozen of quality papers at IEEE HPCC 2015 or its co-located conferences.

The IEEE HPCC conference is a prominent conference in the world of computing. The conference focuses on providing a platform for scientists and engineers in academia and industry to address the profound challenges in global High Performance Computing (HPC), and present their new experiences and research done in all aspects of HPC, Big Data, cloud computing, and related topics. There will also be eight co-located conferences, symposiums, summits, and workshops, also run as part of IEEE. The co-located events will include the 12th ICESS (International Conference on Embedded Software and Systems), the 7th CSS  (International Symposium on Cyberspace Safety and Security), BigDataSecurity 2015 (International Symposium on Big Data Security on Cloud), HPSC 2015 (International High Performance and Smart Computing), SmartData 2015 (International Symposium on Smart Data), and the High Performance Big Data Summit (HBD).

IEEE HPCC 2015 aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners who are working on high performance computing and communications from both academia and industry in the world. The conference usually brings in around 400 Computer Science professors and scholars from across the world. Among the dozen of IEEE/ACM fellows delivering the keynotes are Jack Dongarra (top scholar in High Performance Computing, ACM and IEEE Fellow), Sun-Yuan Kung (IEEE Fellow, Princeton University), Xiaodong Wang (IEEE Fellow, Columbia University), Tarek EI-Ghazawi (IEEE Fellow, GWU), Sandeep Shukla (IEEE Fellow, IIT India), and Ruqian Lu (Academician of Chinese Academy of Science). More than ten industrial entrepreneur leaders will deliver important topics about High-performance Big Data (HBD) on the associated summit, including Jim Jeffers (Intel), Long Fei (Google), Stan Posey (NVIDIA), Kevin Johnson (IBM), Greg Clifford (Cray), and Yung-Chin Fang (Dell).

The conference is organized by IEEE HPCC/ICESS/CSS 2015 committees and sponsored by IEEE, IEEE TCSC, IEEE Computer Society, Pace University, and Longxiang High Tech Group. This conference will be a great opportunity for scholars to connect with academics within a harmonious atmosphere filled with enthusiastic, experienced, and successful members of the computing society. The high-quality research papers presented in the conference cover a broad scope of academic research topics in computer science. The research achievements showcased at these conferences include experimental efforts, innovative system designs, novel technology explorations and evaluations, and investigations identifying the weakness in the existing computing and communication technologies.

Seidenberg recently hosted a conference for women in tech with our friends over at Write/Speak/Code. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite shots from conference! Take a look at what Write/Speak/Code is doing to help make our women the best professionals/creatives/go-getters they can be! Also — we’d like to send out a huge thanks to HBO sponsoring the event.

Seidenberg Research Teams Awarded Best Paper Recognition

At the annual Conference on Information Systems Applied Research (CONISAR), A Research Study of Cloud Computing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) in Financial Firms was awarded 2012 Distinguished Paper Award; and at the annual concurrent Information Systems Educators Conference (ISECON), A Comprehensive Research Survey on Cyberbullying Perceptions at a Major Metropolitan University (i.e. Pace University) – Faculty Perspectives was awarded 2012 Meritorious Paper Award.

At the annual Conference on Information Systems Applied Research (CONISAR), A Research Study of Cloud Computing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) in Financial Firms was awarded 2012 Distinguished Paper Award; and at the annual concurrent Information Systems Educators Conference (ISECON), A Comprehensive Research Survey on Cyberbullying Perceptions at a Major Metropolitan University (i.e. Pace University) – Faculty Perspectives was awarded 2012 Meritorious Paper Award.

 

The Cloud Computing paper, a 9 month study involving industry survey and case study, was authored by Dr. James Lawler and Dr. Anthony Joseph of the Seidenberg School, Ms. H. Howell-Barber, an associate of the Seidenberg School Board of Advisors, and Ms. Supriya Desai, a former graduate student of the Seidenberg School.

 

The Cyberbullying paper, a 6 month study involving survey at the university, was authored by Dr. John C. Molluzzo and Dr. Lawler of the Seidenberg School.

 

The papers were awarded recognition from over 100 papers presented competitively at the conferences.

 

The conferences were held in New Orleans in November.
The Seidenberg School congratulates Dr. James Lawler, Dr. Anthony Joseph, Ms. Howell-Barber, Ms. Supriya Desai and Dr. John C Molluzzo.
