Invited Talk 1: “Secure and Resilient Cloud and Mobile Services”
Mr. Pierre Noel, Chief Security Officer & Advisor, Microsoft Corporation

Exactly 20 years ago, Prof Ross Anderson from Cambridge University published a widely respected article, titled “Why Cryptosystems Fail” in which the author demonstrated that the problems rely not in the strength of encryption, but in the ecosystem. In light with this approach, it is time to look at security environments commonly deployed in Asia and elsewhere, analyze the reasons of their failure from a business efficiency perspective, and suggest a more effective alternative. Some recent publicized cyber war stories exemplified the need for going beyond having a secured environment: many organizations apply a "bank vault" approach when devising and running their environment. Most of the time, this approach is totally inappropriate when serious incidents happen. The three points that this presentation will make include: i) review what went wrong, and why, ii) rather than looking at being secure, organizations ought to look at being resilient, and understand the mindset shift associated with this evolution and iii) cloud and mobility are critical components to building a resilient environment, and need to be considered in light with their pros and cons.

Invited Talk 3: “Digital Signage: Trends, Systems, and Services”
Dr. Katsuhiko Kawazoe, Vice President, NTT

Digital signage expansion has attracted a lot of attention as a way to distribute media to the public. In the digital signage industry, proprietary technology has constituted the market to date. For even greater growth it is necessary to reduce overall costs of digital signage platform and to enhance communication between personal devices (smart phones, tablets) and widespread digital signage. Utilization of a global standardized technology is expected to expand the range of application of these services and make it easier to work together with web technology such as HTML5 and thus make it possible to pioneer a new global market. In this presentation, the trends of signage systems, services and a global standardization of digital signage are introduced.

Invited Talk 4: “Vision and Key Features for 5th Generation Cellular”
Dr. Kyungwhoon Cheun, Senior Vice President, Samsung Electronics

This talk presents how the predicted mobile traffic explosion in the coming years can be accommodated by utilizing wide spectrum in the rather underutilized mmWave bands in conjunction with novel physical and network layer technologies such as BS-MS adaptive joint beamforming. We will take an in-depth look into the propagation characteristics in the mmWave bands, especially around 28GHz, along with channel measurement results at Austin, Texas, Manhattan and in Korea. In addition, the results of the initial field tests carried out in Suwon, Korea using the PoC (Proof-of-Concept) system operating at 28GHz will be described showing the feasibility of cellular operation at such high frequencies. Test results for LoS (Line-of-Sight) range, Non-LoS operation, outdoor-to-indoor penetration and mobility will be presented.
