IBM Research Conference Chairs: IoTaaS 2015, MOBILESoft 2015, FIT 2015 (up to IBM Research Computer Science Blog)
Benjamin Mandler, IBM Research - Haifa, is the General Chair of the 2nd EAI International Conference on IoT as a Service, 26-27 October 2015, in Rome, Italy. "The 'IoT as a Service' conference is meant to bring together researchers and practitioners, from academia and from the industry, being it large Telcos and service providers, or SMEs who are interested in creating IoT based value added services. The main aim is to present existing, evolving, or novel ideas, exchange points of view, and foster discussions and future collaborations between different stakeholders. Papers are welcomed representing the point of view of middleware and platform providers, smart object providers, application developers, as well as researchers. The 'IoT as a Service' conference is seeking original research and industrial papers on the confluence of IoT and advanced delivery models."
Aharon Abadi, IBM Research - Haifa, was the General Chair of the 2nd ACM International Conference on Mobile Software Engineering and Systems, 16-17 May 2015, Florence, Italy. "In recent years, there has been exponential growth in both the development and use of mobile applications thus presenting new challenges to software engineering. Mobile platforms are rapidly changing, with the addition of diverse capabilities such as GPS, sensors, and touch or pen input modes. When running on mobile platforms, modern applications need to scale on demand according to the hardware abilities. During development, security and authorization processes for dataflow are very important. However, the popularity of bring your own device (BYOD) policies in schools, universities and the workplace bring new possibilities of security data leaks. Developing robust mobile applications therefore requires advanced practices and tools. Some of these are architecture techniques that relate to the platform complexity; improved refactoring tools for hybrid applications using dynamic languages; developing applications in multiple languages; and testing and verification techniques for applications that run on different devices."
M. Mustafa Rafique, IBM Research - Ireland, will be the Computer Science Track co-Chair of the 13th International Conference on Frontiers of Information Technology, 14-16 December 2015, Islamabad, Pakistan. The conference is technically sponsored by IEEE Islamabad Chapter, IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Industrial Electronics Society.
