Department of Computer Science Colloquium
2007 Series

Semantic Integrated Services with Wireless Sensors

Prof. Chunming Rong
Chair of Computer Science Section
Faculty of Science and Technology
University of Stavanger

Date: July 20, 2007 (Friday)
Time: 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Venue: SCT909, Cha Chi Ming Science Tower, Ho Sin Hang Campus

More and more information is collected from more and more information sources like sensors. Integration or fusion of the information flow is needed in order to provide services, especially real time services, based on collected data. Examples are given in oil and gas industry, critical infrastructure protection, broadband to the home services. The Semantic Web Services technologies facilitates the connection of different services and annotates data with semantic meaning based on ontologies, enabling automation of process in discovery, composition, mediation and monitoring of services without the need of human interactions. But the increasing use of Semantic Web Services and the ability to reason about the information allow subtler attacks thus demand for fresh thinking when it comes to security and security solutions

Chunming Rong received his bachelor, master and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from the University of Bergen in Norway in 1993, 1995 and 1998, respectively. In 1995 – 1998, he was a research fellow at the University of Bergen. In 2001 – 2003, he was a Post-doc researcher funded by Simula Research Laboratory. Currently, he is a Professor and chair of the computer science section at the University of Stavanger. He serves also as an adjunct Professor at the University Graduate Centre, University of Oslo, since 2005. Prof. Rong is given ConocoPhilips Communication Award (Norway) in 2007. His paper “New Infinite Families of 3-Designs from Preparata Codes over Z4” is awarded Editor's Choice in Discrete Mathematics in 1999. He is a member of editorial board for two journals: International Journal of Smart Home (IJSH) and International Journal of Mobile Communications (IJMC) - ISSN 1470-949X. For IEEE International Symposium on Security in Networks and Distributed Systems (SSNDS), he is program chair in 2007 in Canada and general chair in 2008. For International Conference on Autonomic and Trusted Computing (ATC), he is award chair in 2007 in Hong Kong and general chair in 2008 in Norway. For International Conference on Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing (UIC), he is general chair in 2008 in Norway. Prof. Rong is chairman of the board of the Foundation of the Norwegian Computer Science Conference (NIK) in 2006-2009, board member of the Norwegian Information Security Network (NISNet) for 2007-2011, and member of the Norwegian Informatics Council (Nasjonalt fagråd for informatikk). He has also been a member of the board for “ICT Security and Vulnerability (IKT-SoS)” Program at the Research Council of Norway. He serves currently also in the workgroup for Information Security in Integrated Operation at the Norwegian Oil Industry Association (OLF). As project manager, he received a grant of 1.1 million Euro from the Research Council of Norway for the project “Secure and reliable Wireless and Ad hoc COMmunications (SWACOM)” for 2006 – 2009; and a grant of 1.4 million Euro from the Research Council of Norway for the project “Integrated IP-based Services for smart Home environment (IS-Home)” for 2007 – 2010. The Norwegian Information Security Network (NISNet) also receives annual funding of 100K Euro from the Research Council of Norway. His research interests include computer and network security, wireless communications, cryptography, identity management, electronic payment, coding theory and semantic web technology.
