Professor ISMAIL KHALIL
Title : Cloud Computing, Quo vadis?
- Abstract :
- We have now fully entered the era of cloud computing championed by services such as Amazon Web Services, for example. Computing has evolved towards a service paradigm for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (networks, servers, storage, applications, and services). Processing units and storage are managed in data centers whose architecture (clusters or grid) is transparent to the users and programmers.
- Both desktop and mobile multimedia applications are accessed from the web anytime anywhere. An unenthusiastic computer scientist could claim that there is nothing new under the sun since RPC (Remote Procedure Call). Therefore, this talk will try and shed a light on the research questions raised by this new technological ecosystem and by various scenarios for its evolution.
- Ismail Khalil is the deputy head of the institute of telecooperation, Johanes Kepler University Linz, Austria, since October 2002 and Adjunct Full Professor at Faculty of Science and Technology (FST), Syarif Hidayatullah Islamic State University Jakarta, Indonesia. He is the president of the international organization of Information Integration and Web-based Applications & Services (@WAS). He holds a PhD in computer engineering and received his habilitation degree in applied computer science on his work on agents interaction in ubiquitous Environments in May 2008. He currently teaches, consults, and conducts research in Mobile Multimedia, Cloud Computing, Agent Technologies, and Web Intelligence and is also interested in the broader business, social, and policy implications associated with the emerging information technologies. Before joining Johannes Kepler University of Linz, he was a research fellow at the Intelligent Systems Group at Utrecht University, Netherlands from 2001-2002 and the project manager of AgenCom project at the Software Competence Center Hagenberg Austria from 2000-2001. Dr. Khalil has authored around 150 scientific publications, books, and book chapters. He serves as the Editor-in-Chief of 4 international journals and 2 books series. His work has been published and presented at various conferences and workshops.
