Lecture Series in Computer Science

Speaker:Prof. Ivan Stojmenovic, University of Ottawa
Time:2008 年12 月15 日(星期一)上午10:00 - 11:30
Venue:南京大学蒙民伟楼109 室

1. How to write articles in computer science and related engineering disciplines
This talk advocates a general way of presenting research articles on any topic and in any
field related to computer science, information technology, and relevant engineering
disciplines. Some examples and implications are given for the case study of wireless sensor
networks. The key advice to a successful presentation is to repeat the description of main
contribution four times: in the title, abstract, introduction (or chapter 1) and in the text.
That is, make readable, appealing, and as complete as possible versions of the work using
the order of 10, 100, 1000 and 10.000 words. This corresponds to the decreasing portion of
readers for corresponding parts of the article. To the extent possible, each of these parts
should address, in this order: the problem statement, existing solutions, the new solution(s),
assumptions and limitations, analysis, simulation and comparison with best competing
solutions.

2. Contribution of applied algorithms to applied computing
There are many attempts to bring together computer scientists, applied mathematician and
engineers to discuss advanced computing for scientific, engineering, and practical
problems. This talk is about the role and contribution of applied algorithms within applied
computing. It will discuss some specific areas where design and analysis of algorithms is
believed to be the key ingredient in solving problems, which are often large and complex
and cope with tight timing schedules. The talk is based on recent Handbook of Applied
Algorithms (Wiley, March 2008), co-edited by the speaker. The featured application areas
for algorithms and discrete mathematics include computational biology, computational
chemistry, wireless networks, Internet data streams, computer vision, and emergent
systems. Techniques identified as important include graph theory, game theory, data mining,
evolutionary, combinatorial and cryptographic, routing and localized algorithms.
