Speech Title: Performance Measurement for Big Data Systems

Abstract: Many Big Data Systems (BDS) fails because of lack of knowledge on measuring the performance of BDS. The failure to identify the correct measures will complicate the efforts of fixing such problems and more importantly, will affect the quality of knowledge, insights, and results expected by the users in the future. In achieving durable performance, the organization needs to understand the factors that contribute to the performance of the eco-sustainability metrics for BDS. Therefore, the performance and eco-sustainability measurement of the BDS is examined. Measuring the BDS performance has the benefit of identifying problems and launching corrective actions before these problems happen and become worsen. The proposed measurements used to capture performance for each process of BDS. Then, based on such measures and metrics, as well as existing performance concepts, frameworks, and models, a measurement model for BDS will be created. The model was validated through expert evaluations and confirmatory studies with users and practitioners of BDS users. The research has a greater significance in leveraging existing performance concepts in BDS settings and the research proposes users' participation in the sustainability and continuous performance evaluation of their BDS.

Speech Title: Advanced Palmprint Recognition

Abstract:Biometric recognition is convenient and reliable, so it has been widely used for identification and verification. Palmprint is a promising biometric modality and has several advantages, including high accuracy, good availability, high acceptability, etc. This speech introduces several advanced palmprint recognition technologies.  Since palmprint is a typical biometric modality, its recognition technologies can be conveniently extended to other biometric modalities.


A. Prof. Yongquan Yan

School of Statistics, Shanxi University of Finance and Economics

Research Area: Machine learning, dependable computing, software aging and rejuvenation

Speech Title: Software aging prediction using neural network with ridge.

Abstract: Since software systems become more complex than before, software ageing problems have a big impact on the performance of running software systems. To find software ageing in advance, some prediction methods were used to forecast those parameters which can indicate software ageing occurrences. Since the unsuitable parameters can reduce the prediction ability of an algorithm, in this study, multilayer perceptron (MLP) with ridge is proposed to improve the prediction accuracy of MLP and apply in software ageing problems. The proposed approach is a three-step method. First, a pre-processing process needs to be done by using outlier recognition, dispose, and normalisation. Second, MLP with ridge is proposed and used to optimise network structure. Third, a glowworm swarm optimisation method is utilised to automatically find optimal values of model parameters. In the experimental section, the results indicate that the proposed algorithm owns higher forecast accuracy than other state-of-the-art methods on two levels.


A. Prof. Mabel C. Chou

Department of Decision Sciences, National University of Singapore, Singapore

Research Area: 

1. Production Scheduling

2. Logistics and Supply Chain Analysis

3. Operations/Manufacturing Flexibility Design and Analysis

Speech Title: Managing Supply Chain Risk with Process Flexibility

Abstract: The global supply chain is undergoing significant changes as a result of recent international tensions and pandemic-related disruptions. To mitigate the uncertainties arising from these supply shocks, supply chain operators need to effectively cushion the supply-side risks while also hedging against demand uncertainties. In both theory and practice, process flexibility has been proven to be an effective supply chain strategy that enables timely and effective responses to demand uncertainties. This talk aims to shed light on how process flexibility can mitigate supply chain uncertainties with a few case studies.
