AFCEA ?? TOKYO is a technology focused non-profit organization dedicated to serving the local Japanese and US military, government, industry, and academia in and around Tokyo as a venue for educating and advancing professional knowledge on a variety of topics, to include information technology, cyber security, intelligence, telecommunications and more. AFCEA ?? TOKYO is strongly focused on STEM education – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics – and giving back to the local community in the form of STEM grants and scholarships for junior and senior high school students.
FIRST Technical Colloquia & Symposia provide a discussion forum for FIRST members and invited guests to share information about vulnerabilities, incidents, tools and all other issues that affect the operation of incident response and security teams. This is the fourth time to have TC in Japan, and the topic of this time is “IoT”.
For you that are new in FIRST or never have attended a TC, the colloquium typically provides one whole day of plenary sessions for informal discussions and presentations on topics of FIRST membership interest, or that are more sensitive in nature and related to the day-to-day work of participants.
The FIRST colloquia are typically hosted by members and since 2005 are being organized in a regional basis — the current regions being Latin-America, North-America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. For each region the goal is to organize one TC per year — either standing on its own, or jointly with regional CSIRT initiatives.
The Osaka TC intends to have presentation track and hands-on class(es). In addition, 2nd Summit Days (Global Vulnerability Reporting Summit) after 5 years at TC in Kyoto 2012 will be held for sharing vulnerability information on a global basis.
The increased size and complexity of the communications and the networking infrastructures are making it difficult the investigation of the resiliency, security assessment, safety and crimes. Mobility, anonymity, counterfeiting, are characteristics that add more complexity in Internet of Things and Cloud-based solutions. Cyber-physical systems exhibit a strong link between the computational and physical elements. Techniques for cyber resilience, cyber security, protecting the cyber infrastructure, cyber forensic and cyber crimes have been developed and deployed. Some of new solutions are nature-inspired and social-inspired leading to self-secure and self-defending systems. Despite the achievements, security and privacy, disaster management, social forensics, and anomalies/crimes detection are challenges within cyber-systems.
CYBER 2018, The Third International Conference on Advances in Cyber-Technologies and Cyber-Systems, continues the inaugural event covering many aspects related to cyber-systems and cyber-technologies considering the issues mentioned above and potential solutions. It is also intended to illustrate appropriate current academic and industry cyber-system projects, prototypes, and deployed products and services.
Big data and smart computing are emerging research fields that have recently drawn much attention from computer science and information technology as well as from social sciences and other disciplines.
The goal of the International Conference on Big Data and Smart Computing (BigComp), initiated by KIISE (Korean Institute of Information Scientists and Engineers), is to provide an international forum for exchanging ideas and information on current studies, challenges, research results, system developments, and practical experiences in these emerging fields.
Following the successes of the previous BigComp conferences in Bangkok, Thailand (2014), Jeju, Korea (2015), Hong Kong, China (2016), Jeju, Korea (2017), and Shanghai, China (2018), the 2019 International Conference on Big Data and Smart Computing (BigComp 2019) will be held in Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan.
The conference is co-sponsored by IEEE and KIISE. BigComp 2019 invites authors to submit original research papers and original work-in-progress reports on big data and smart computing.
Devopsdays is a worldwide series of technical conferences covering topics of software development, IT infrastructure operations, and the intersection between them. Each event is run by volunteers from the local area.
Most devopsdays events feature a combination of curated talks (see open calls for proposals ) and self organized open space content. Topics often include automation, testing, security, and organizational culture.
The internet of things (IoT) is a platform that allows a network of devices (sensors, smart meters, etc.) to communicate, analyse data and process information collaboratively in the service of individuals or organisations. The IoT network can generate large amounts of data in a variety of formats and using different protocols which can be stored and processed in the cloud. The conference looks to address the issues surrounding IoT devices, their interconnectedness and services they may offer, including efficient, effective and secure analysis of the data IoT produces using machine learning and other advanced techniques, models and tools, and issues of security, privacy and trust that will emerge as IoT technologies mature and become part of our everyday lives.
Big Data (BD) has core values of volume, velocity, variety and veracity. After collecting much data from IoT, BD can be jointly used with machine learning, AI, statistical and other advanced techniques, models and methods, which can create values for people and organizations adopting it, since forecasting, deep analysis and analytics can help identify weaknesses and make improvements based on different analysis.
Maintaining a high level of security and privacy for data in IoT are crucial and we welcome recommendations, solutions, demonstrations and best practices for all forms of security and privacy for IoT and BD.
