News! The IC2IT 2017 will be held at Arnoma Grand Bangkok Hotel.
Overview
The 13th International Conference on Computing and Information Technology

The huge amount of raw data generated by government, industry and business, commonly known as Big Data, require more and more efficient tools to turn them into useful information and knowledge. The 13th International Conference on Computing and Information Technology provides an exchange of the state of the art and future developments in the two key areas of this process: Data Science and Machine Learning, Data Network and Communication. Behind the background of the foundation of society, it becomes clear that efficient languages, business principles and communication methods need to be adapted, unified and especially optimized to gain a maximum benefit to the users and customers of future IT systems.

The IC2IT2017 will be organized by King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok (KMUTNB) and partner institutions from Thailand and abroad.


Objective

The conference is to be a platform for providing and exchanging information, knowledge, skills, and experiences in the field of computing and information technology.


Invited Speakers

Professor Dr. Jie Lu

Professor Dr. Jie Lu is the Associate Dean in Research in the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS).

She is also the Director of the Decision Systems and e-Service Intelligence (DeSI) Research Laboratory in the Centre for Quantum Computation & Intelligent Systems. Her main research interests lie in the area of decision support systems, recommender systems, prediction and early warning systems, fuzzy transfer learning, concept drift and web-based e-service intelligence. She has published six research books and 400 papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings.

She has won seven Australian Research Council (ARC) discovery grants and 10 other research grants in the last 15 years. She received the first UTS Research Excellent Medal for Teaching and Research Integration in 2010 and other awards. She serves as Editor-In-Chief for Knowledge-Based Systems (Elsevier) and Editor-In-Chief for International Journal on Computational Intelligence Systems (Atlantis), and has delivered many keynote speeches at international conferences.

Professor Dr. Hanno Lefmann

Hanno Lefmann studied mathematics and physics at the University of Bielefeld, Germany, where he got his diploma in mathematics in 1982. He continued to be with the University of Bielefeld until 1992 and got there in mathematics his PhD in 1985 as well as his habilitation in 1992.

In 1992 he moved to the University of Dortmund at the Computer Science department, Germany, where he has been until 2000. He had visiting positions at IBM Scientic Center in Heidelberg, Germany, in 1989, and, within in the United States, at Georgia Institute of Technology as well as at Emory University both in Atlanta in 1989/1990 and at the University of Idaho in Moscow in 1992, and in 1999 at Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany.

In 2000 he became a full professor for theoretical computer science and information security at Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany.

Professor Dr. Prabhas Chongstitvatana

Prabhas Chongstitvatana is a professor in the department of computer engineering, Chulalongkorn University. He earned B.Eng. in Electrical Engineering from Kasetsart University, Thailand in 1980 and Ph.D. from the department of artificial intelligence, Edinburgh University, U.K. in 1992. His research involves robotics, evolutionary computation, computer architecture, bioinformatics. He is a lifetime member of Thailand Engineering Institute, senior member of Thai Academy of Science and Technology, senior adviser of Thai Robotics Society, founding member of Thai Embedded System Association and IEEE Robotics and Automation Society. He was the president of ECTI Association of Thailand 2012-2013. He has been awarded "National Distinguished Researcher" by National Research Council of Thailand in 2009. His current interest is in building Quantum computer.

Professor Dr. Armin R. Mikler

In 1997, Professor Mikler joined the Department of Computer Science at the University of North Texas with a PhD from Iowa State University. With the help of four courageous undergraduate students, he established the Network Research Laboratory (NRL), and with it, UNT's first Beowulf Cluster to facilitate complex simulations in support of the group's research on Computer Network Protocols and Distributed Systems. In addition to the inaugural group of students, who completed their MS theses under Dr. Mikler's guidance, the laboratory attracted many graduate students with interest in experimental design of protocols and algorithms for large distributed computing infrastructures.

In 2004, Dr. Mikler started to gradually move into a new field of research, which was motivated by the need to facilitate advances in the field of Public Health and Epidemiology through computational methods. He established the Computational Epidemiology Research Laboratory (CERL) with focus on the development of computational methodology to model and simulate the spread of diseases and the design and analysis of bio-emergency response plans. Together with colleagues in Biology and Geography, Dr. Mikler established the truly interdisciplinary Center for Computational Epidemiology and Response Analysis (CeCERA) after receiving federal funds from the US Department of Health and Human Services.
