Amity University Mumbai hosted an International Conference on Recent Advances in Computational Techniques -IC-RACT-2022
Mumbai: Amity School of Engineering and Technology, Amity University Mumbai in Collaboration with National Taipei University, Taiwan and Tokyo University of Technology, Japan organized ‘2nd International conference on recent advances in computational Techniques – (IC-RACT 2022)’ on 9-11th March, 2022.
The theme of the conference was to provide an international platform to researchers, scientists and industry personnel to engage in scientific discussion on the current research and the latest advancements in computational fields of engineering and technology. The world has witness tremendous transformation in human life and what technology brought during pandemic and thereafter. The conference received overwhelming response from around the globe from researchers and scientists. A highly reputed scientists from countries like the USA, UK, Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, India presented their work through keynote speeches on an online as well as in person mode.
On the 1 day of the conference, Dr. Ren-Hung Hwang, Distinguished Professor & Dean, National Chung Cheng University, Taiwan delivered a lecture on “Special Research Topics on 5G NR V2X”. Dr. Ren-Hung Hwang talked about the Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication is one of the key technologies of 5G New Radio (NR) to support emerging applications such as vehicle platooning and autonomous driving. He also introduces some interesting topics that they are working on. He presented two of their recent results on this research area. The first work is a proactive controllable path planning and trafﬁc scheduling scheme for emergency vehicles in the era of the connected vehicle. The second work discusses the optimal management of Road Side Units (RSUs) while satisfying multiple types of QoS requirements.
Dr Sotiris Moschoyiannis, Department of Computer Science, University of Surrey, UK, talked on “Learning, prediction and control in complex networks”. Dr Sotiris Moschoyiannis, In his talk he focused on recent developments in Reinforcement Learning (rule-based) and Deep Learning over graphs, with applications to prediction and control in Complex Networks. He also highlighted the profound effect these have on a diverse set of domains, including system biology, transportation networks, and network security.
On the 2nd day of the conference the keynote talk by Prof. Fatma Mili, Dean and Professor, College of Computing and Informatics UNC Charlotte University, USA on “Computational Humanity: Values and Computing”. In her talk, she focused on Software Systems and applications have evolved from their original innocuous sophisticated calculators to all-encompassing systems making decisions in every aspect of our lives. She also discusses the opportunity for the computing community to take a much more pro-active approach to designing systems whose underlying values, assumptions, and premises are more visible, more intentional, and more humane.
Dr. Padmaja Patwardhan Joshi, Senior Director, Center for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), Mumbai, India, focused on “Blockchain Interoperability. In her talk she specified the functionality of blockchain, its challenges and mechanisms to work in interoperable manner for blockchain applications.
75 papers from different countries were presented in the conference, which was conducted in Hybrid mode. The researchers and top scientists from India, U.S.A., Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, UK presented their high quality work to bring out the cutting edge technology inventions to the forum. The policy discussion was held on this platform as researcher from different countries expressed their views, how the technology can be used in present and future, especially in the era of Industry 5.0
On this occasion Lt. Gen V K Sharma, AVSM, Vice Chancellor, Amity University, Mumbai, said that data generation and analysis is a big challenge in today’s world. Pro-Vice chancellor Dr A W Santhosh Kumar addressed to the conference stating the importance of technology in day’s life especially in pandemic times,. He made emphasis on organizing such conferences for further deliberations to come out with concrete outputs.
The conference ended with remarks from Chief Guest Prof. (Dr.) Kamal Kant Dwivedi, former advisor ministry of science and technology, and Prof.(Dr.) Yue-Shan Chang of National Taipei University, Taiwan.
