Keynote Speakers

Keynote 1 – Computational Humanity: Values and Computing

Prof. Fatma Mili

Dean and Professor

College of Computing and Informatics

UNC Charlotte University, U.S


Software Systems and applications have evolved from their original innocuous sophisticated calculators to all encompassing systems making decisions in every aspect of our lives. As a result they have slowly been imbued with tacit and unspoken values, some intentionally, especially when they have a social good mantra, others unintentionally and unknowingly. The risk of hidden values is software systems is much greater in systems that are not directly programmed but make inferences and generalizations from the data they are fed. This talk 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. Fatma Mili joined UNC Charlotte's College of Computing and Informatics (CCI) as its Dean in August 2017 after serving as Department Head of Computer Information Technology, Associate Dean for Educational Research and Development, and then Executive Director of the TransSTEM Center at Purdue University.

Mili holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University Pierre & Marie Curie, Paris, France. Her research focus is in the areas of decision-making, formal methods in computing, and complex and self-organizing systems. The role Higher Education plays as an agent of social change has been an underlying theme in her work. She advocates for a STEM education embedded in ethics, for curricular design and pedagogy where inclusivity and equity are key ingredients rather than afterthought add-ons, and for a research agenda grounded in the most pressing challenges and focused on long-term impact.

Keynote 2 – Special Research Topics on 5G NR V2X

Prof. Ren-Hung Hwang

Research Distinguished Professor,

Dept. of Computer Science & Information Engineering,

Keynote 5 – Learning, prediction and control in complex networks

Dr Sotiris Moschoyiannis

Department of Computer Science

University of Surrey, GU2 7XH, UK


Advances in AI, Data and Network Science have opened up a wide spectrum of applications for ICT. In this talk I will focus on recent developments in Reinforcement Learning (rule-based) and Deep Learning over graphs, with applications to prediction and control in Complex Networks. I will also highlight the profound effect these have on a diverse set of domains, including system biology and targeted therapeutics, transportation networks, and network security. For instance, I will draw from Reinforcement Learning, a particular branch of Machine Learning that focuses on sequential decision making under uncertainty, to show how we develop control strategies that drive a gene regulatory network towards a desired state, typically a (healthy) attractor, within a finite number of steps. Time permitting, I will also touch upon inferring the network in the first place.


He is a mathematician (Maths, University of Patras) doing research in computer science (PhD in Theoretical Computer Science, University of Surrey). He is working on Learning and Control in complex networks focuses on when and where to intervene in a network in order to steer to a desirable outcome. He is keen on mathematical methods (control theory, approximations methods) combined with computational methods such as Reinforcement Learning (rule-based, deep).
