Title: Wireless Computing, Human Computer Interaction and Future of Education

Abstract: Wireless computing is becoming an integral component of learning environments in higher education and at work places. There is a new trend setting up with the increasing number of “laptop universities” and distributed-learning communities creating new markets for content and expanded revenue opportunities for academic institutions. Online degree programs and distance learning with human computer Interaction (HCI) have gained a firm foothold in universities around the world. The...

biplabTitle: Cyber Security Challenges and Solutions for the Internet of Things

Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) represents a great opportunity to connect people, information, and things, which will in turn cause a paradigm shift in the way we work, interact, and think. The IoT is envisioned as the enabling technology for smart cities, power grids, health care, and control systems for critical installments and public infrastructure. This diversity, increased control and interaction of devices, and the fact that IoT systems use public networks to transfer large...

Dr. Valentina Emila Balas

Full Professor
Aurel Vlaicu University of Arad, Romania

Title: Advanced Computational Intelligence Methods-Design and Practical Applications

Abstract: The talk is focused on computational intelligence paradigms for designing intelligent systems.

Nowadays fuzzy logic is considered a good approach to solve control problems in a wide range of applications.

We are focused on the conception, development and implementation of a special family of fuzzy controllers, the fuzzy-interpolative systems. The designing methodology of these controllers is presented. It offers the advantages of the linguistic...
