Wednesday, December 20, 2000

Tutorials - I  Time :  9.00 PM  - 12.00 Noon
Chairs: N. Tripathy, Fujitsu Microelectronics, USA and

M. Patra, Berhampur University, India

T.1. Human Computer Interface Design Anirudha Joshi, anirudha@idc.iitb.ernet.in

Abstract: What makes human-computer interfaces more usable? Solid functionality or powerful code optimization? Pretty graphics or clean layouts? This tutorial looks at some principles and measurable attributes that make human interfaces more usable.

About the Speaker: Anirudha Joshi has been working in the field of human-computer interface design and design for new media for the past eight years. Currently he is a faculty member in the Industrial Design Center in IIT Bombay. In addition to teaching HCI in IIT Bombay, he conducts workshops and training programs for participants from the industry. He is also a consultant to several software and Internet companies in the field of human-computer interface design and software usability engineering.

T.2. Soft Computing Techniques For Pattern Recognition
        Dr. Basabi Chakraborty, basabi@soft.iwate-pu.ac.jp

T.3. Next Generation Middleware
        Arvind W. Kiwelekar, awk@dbatu.ren.nic.in

Abstract: The level of the tutorial being introductory one, reviews the evolution of the middleware technology and also explores the features of the next generation middleware platforms like CORBA/EJB. All those with Object Oriented background and zeal for honing their programming skills can attend the tutorial.

About the Speaker: Arvind W. Kiwelekar is presently working as the Head, Department of Computer Engineering of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Technological University, Lonere, INDIA. He did his M. E. from VJTI, Mumbai. For a short period, he

T.4. Formal Models for Enterprise Engineering: Distributed Production Organizations
        Dr. Tomasz Janowski, tj@iist.unu.edu

Abstract. Enterprise models provide a formalized representation of the core business activities of an industrial organization. They can become a useful resource for a company, helping to better understand its behavior, to analyze and optimize operations, to support management of change, to plan and monitor collaboration with its customers and suppliers. The tutorial outlines model construction for a distributed production enterprise, a recent trend in organizational development particularly suitable for the enterprises that carry out their activities on-line (including business-to-business transactions). The enterprise has several manufacturing enterprises operates independently to advance individual goals based on their own resources interacting with each other, when the goals exceed the capacity of any single enterprise. The tutorial shows how to tackle a well-defined set of semantic issues for distributed enterprise modeling (from concurrency, scheduling to distribution and real-time). Secondly, apply such models, via tools, to carry out systematic design and analysis of the organization’s business goals and processes.

About the Speaker: Tomasz Janowski received an MSc in Mathematics from the University of Gdansk, Poland in 1989 and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Warwick, England in 1995. His research interests include formal design of reliable systems from unreliable components (fault-tolerance), models and tools for enterprise engineering and the integration of static (proof-based) and dynamic (based on run-time error-detection) techniques in component-based software development.
