TUCS GP travel report: HICSS 2012 by Sonja Leskinen

Full name of the event: 2012 45th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS)
Place and date: Maui, Hawaii, USA. January 4-7 2012
Type of event: Conference and a one day workshop

My article:
• Title of paper: Veterinarian Work, Enhanced by Mobile Technology – An Empirical Study.
• Authors: Sonja Leskinen

The scientific profile of the event: This conference had a very broad spectrum of topics within IS and mobile technology. The main tracks were everything from Collaboration Systems and technology, knowledge systems, e-government to decision technology, Mobile Technologies and service Science. These main tracks were divided into many minitracks. Simultaneously there could be 19 sessions in different conference rooms.

Opinion on the best paper and its topic: I attended mostly the healthcare tracks, since I felt that I could learn most from these presentations, for my own research. The healthcare track seemed to have many American researchers, which was interesting, since USA has a very different healthcare system than what we have here in Europe. In USA the IS solutions presented were mostly concentrating on support for private nursing homes, private healthcare chains and maintenance of good health. The researches were also often funded by private healthcare companies. In Finland, and whole EU we are trying to get a one unified healthcare IS solution, since we rely much on public healthcare. In the US, private companies want to ensure that the customer comes back to their care, and does not switch to a competing healthcare company. The IS solutions therefore depended much on the fact that all the patient’s healthcare records are in one place and therefore the IS solutions also worked for both the company’s and the patient’s benefit. In my opinion the best paper, in view of my research was Strum Rahmans presentation of the paper “Public health informatics: Increasing use and access”.

Number of participants: Approx 1000 people were registered to the conference.

Social events: Every evening there was some sort of social event on the hotel lawn. The largest was naturally the Luau dinner and show January 3rd.

Touristic impressions: The conference venue was very nice. I stayed at the same hotel where the conference was. The hotel was rather expensive, but luckily we had special conference prices for the rooms. I went after the conference on fishing trip with some Aalto university people (both students & professors) we had a lot of fun, and I actually caught a large fish (15 kg). I believe that the Aalto university people will be very good professional contacts, and super fun friends!


TUCS GP travel report: GameOn Asia 2012 by Sami Hyrynsalmi

Full name of the event: GameOn Asia 2012
Place and date: Kyoto, Japan. February 24–26, 2012
Type of event: Conference

My article:
• Title of paper: Towards Usability Heuristics for Games Utilizing Speech Recognition
• Authors: A. Halonen, S. Hyrynsalmi, K. Kimppa, T. Knuutila, J. Smed & H. Hakonen

The scientific profile of the event: GameOn Asia is a part of larger GameOn conference series containing usually four congerences each year. The conference series focus, well, on the computer games and simulation. This year`s core tracks in Asia`s conference were AI, Game Development Methodology and Physics & Simulation. One of the peripheral tracks that attracted us was voice interaction in the Games.

Opinion on the best paper and its topic: The best paper describes a method of simulating facial expressions "mathematically". The results are saliently realistic.

Number of participants: The conference was rather small, but the exact number of participants is hard to estimate. Let`s guess a few dozen.

Social events: The conference dinner was held in a nice Japanese restaurant near the university`s main campus. The conference participants also visited the International Manga Museum.

Touristic impressions: The conference was held in the university`s campus area. However, Kyoto is a nice city with several UNESCO World Heritage sites. You should definitely visit at least a few of them when visiting Kyoto.


TUCS GP travel report: ASP-DAC`12 by Amir-Mohammad Rahmani

Full name of the event: IEEE/ACM International Asia and South PAcific Design Automation Conference (ASP-DAC`12)
Place and date: Sydney, Australia, Jan. 30 – Feb. 2, 2012
Type of event: Conference

My article:
• Title of paper: ARB-NET: A Novel Adaptive Monitoring Platform for Stacked Mesh 3D NoC Architectures
• Authors: Amir-Mohammad Rahmani, Khalid Latif, Kameswar Rao Vaddina, Pasi Liljeberg, Juha Plosila and Hannu Tenhunen

The scientific profile of the event: ASP-DAC 2012 is the seventeenth annual international conference on VLSI design automation in Asia and South Pacific region, one of the most active regions of design and fabrication of silicon chips in the world. The conference aims at providing the Asian and South Pacific CAD/DA and Design community with opportunities of presenting recent advances and with forums for future directions in technologies related to Electronic Design Automation (EDA). The format of the meeting intends to cultivate and promote an instructive and productive interchange of ideas among EDA researchers/developers and system/circuit/device designers.

Opinion on the best paper and its topic: The first keynote speech presented by Professor Giovanni De Micheli. The presentation topic was “Engineering Complex Systems for Health, Security and the Environment”.

Number of participants: Approximately more than 200 people.

Social events: There was a special dinner cruise on Feb. 1st. we gathered outside the Main Entrance of the convention centre. The group then moved around Darling Harbour to board the Starship Sydney.

Touristic impressions: Australia’s leading business events venue, the Sydney Convention and exhibition Centre, is superbly located on the Darling Harbour waterfront, adjacent to the bustling Sydney central business district. The Centre comprises three major buildings: Convention Centre Bayside, Convention Centre Parkside and the Exhibition Centre. The perfect venue for meetings, conferences, exhibitions and special events, the Centre offers over 30 flexible meeting rooms, ranging from smaller spaces suitable for events for up to 50 people, to an auditorium accommodating 3,500. It also features six exhibition halls and offers a total exhibition space of 30,000 square meters.

A thriving precinct on the edge of Sydney’s central business district, Darling Harbour is home to some of Australia’s most significant tourist attractions as well as a myriad of restaurants and shops, all attuned to the interests and needs of conference delegates and visitors. Many of the city’s vibrant public festivals and events are held in Darling Harbour, which features beautiful parks and a series of major sculptures. Darling Harbour is also incorporated into some of the Centre’s major events, most notably the Sydney International Boat Show which extends into the Cockle Bay Marina.


TUCS GP travel report: Outstanding challenges in Combinatorics on Words by Aleksi Saarela

Full name of the event: Outstanding Challenges in Combinatorics on Words
Place and date: Banff, 19.–24.2.2012
Type of event: Workshop

The scientific profile of the event: The workshop focused on combinatorics on words. Inside this topic, there were a wide range of subtopics. In addition to the usual talks on published work, there were also presentations on works in progress and open problems and informal discussions.

Opinion on the best paper and its topic: It’s difficult to name a best presentation. I state one close to my own area, “Arithmetization of words and related problems” by Matiyasevich.

Number of participants: 42

Social events: Curling excursion at Banff Curling Club.

Touristic impressions: The conference and accommodation were at the Banff Centre, a short distance from the rather small town of Banff. The schedule was quite full and there weren’t many distractions, but the mountainous views all around us were breathtaking. Before the return flight, there was time to see more of the nature around Banff.


TUCS GP travel report: LATA 2012 by Mikhail Barash

Full name of the event: Language and Automata Theory and Applications – 6th International Conference, LATA 2012
Place and date: A Coruña, Spain, 5.–9.3.2012
Type of event: Conference with refereed proceedings

My article:
• Title of paper: Defining Contexts in Context-Free Grammars
• Authors: Mikhail Barash, Alexander Okhotin

The scientific profile of the event: The conference was held for the sixth time this year and covered a rather wide variation of topics on formal languages, automata theory and cellular automata. Several invited tutorials and talks (devoted to the very foundations of theoretical computer science) were given.

Opinion on the best paper and its topic: In my opinion, one of the most interesting talks were given by Eric Rowland on k-automatic sets of rational numbers and by Gilles Dowek who has given a tutorial on the physical Church-Turing thesis; the tutorial was dedicated to Turing Centenary this year.

Number of participants: 63 persons attended the conference

Social events: A guided tour around the Galician city of A Coruña was held during one of the evenings.

Touristic impressions: A Coruña is a rather nice city located at the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. The conference was held in the beginning of March, but the weather was really summer one.

New developments on the TUCS web site at http://tucs.fi

There is now a Google Custom Search available for the TUCS web site. The search page is linked at the front page, on the top right part of the page. Direct address is http://tucs.fi/search/. While testing the search tool, we were happy to see that the TUCS Publication Database is extensively in Google’s search database. This means, that not only the articles can be sought also with the Google Custom Search on our page, but also the articles do come up in global Google searches. This shows also in our Google Analytics results, where Google is the greatest single source of visitors to TUCS web site, and publication detail pages are the second most popular landing place.

Google Analytics also shows that we have been successful in attracting visitors to our site through Facebook. The education/TUCS GP pages have clearly increased their popularity last month with the TUCS GP application round. The Publication Database is clearly our most popular public service and the TUCS course listing is actively used too. Clear increase in the popularity of our web site and our Facebook page are visible all around the statistics.

The publication detail pages are now improved, so that the page title also contains the title of the publication. This will help with the way Google currently shows almost all search hits to publication detail pages with the title “TUCS” and more detail only in the few short lines below it. In the future the paper title will show in the search hit title, as long as Google keeps using the page title there.

The TUCS GP Alumni and Student lists are now sortable by defense and by admission year, respectively. It is also possible to filter the search by the TUCS Department.

We have been happy to receive and publish the first Travel Reports by TUCS GP Students, included also in this newsletter. These reports have been published on the TUCS Facebook Page, as well as on the TUCS News and Events feed, where you can find them at http://tucs.fi/news/. The template for the travel reports is downloadable among other document templates at http://tucs.fi/education/information-students/document-templates/.

As well as the travel reports, we welcome all news and event announcements relevant to TUCS. You can either post them to the TUCS News mailing list at tucsnews@utu.fi, or approach Tomi Mäntylä (bgt@it.utu.fi) for promoting them on the TUCS website and in this newsletter series. We strongly prefer all announcements to be in English.
