Prof. Shouhuai Xu
University of Colorado Colorado Springs, USA
TITLE: SARR: A Cybersecurity Metrics and Quantification Framework
BIO: Shouhuai Xu is a gallogly chair professor in Cybersecurity, University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS). He is the founding director of the Laboratory for Cybersecurity Dynamics (LCD). Hisresearch expertise is in Cybersecurity, including theoretical cybersecurity foundation, quantitative cybersecurity management and operations,and practical cybersecurity architectures and mechanisms. He has served as an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security (IEEE T-IFS) and for IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing (IEEE TDSC) and is serving as an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering (IEEE TNSE). He is/was a Program Committee co-chair of SciSec’2019, SciSec’2018, NSS’15 and Inscrypt’13. He co-initiated the new conference SciSec (International Conference on Science of Cyber Security) in 2018.He hasserved on the Program Committees of numerous international conferences/workshops. 2wwHe has pioneered the systematically approach of Cybersecurity Dynamics, which aims to quantify and manage cybersecurity and cyber defense operations from a holistic perspective.This approach is in herently multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary, leading to publications across disciplines (including ACM Transactions, IEEE Transactions, Journal of Computer Security, Internet Mathematics, Technometrics, Journal of Applied Statistics, and Physical Review E). He received a PhD degree in Computer Science from Fudan University.
Prof. Yugang Jiang
Fudan University, China
TITLE: Preliminary Exploration on Several Security Issues in AI
BIO:Yu-Gang Jiang is Professor of Computer Science at Fudan University, China, where he currently serves as the Dean of School of Computer Science and School of Software. His research is focused on multimedia, computer vision, and robust & trustworthy AI. As the director of Shanghai Engineering Research Center for Video Technology and System, he leads a group of faculties and students conducting research on all aspects of big video data analytics, such as video content recognition, video forensics, and large-scale visual search. He is the lead architect of a few best-performing video recognition systems in worldwide competitions such as the annual U.S. NIST TRECVID evaluation. Recent works in his group have demonstrated top results in various competitions like the YouTube-8M Video Understanding Challenge. His work has led to many awards, including the inaugural 2014 ACM China Rising Star Award, the 2015 ACM SIGMM Rising Star Award, and the research award for outstanding young researchers from NSF China. He is currently an associate editor of ACM TOMM. He holds a PhD in Computer Science from City University of Hong Kong and spent three years working at Columbia University before joining Fudan in 2011.
