About the Speaker

Dr. Mung Chiang is the Arthur LeGrand Doty Professor of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University and the recipient of the 2013 Alan T. Waterman Award. He created the Princeton EDGE Lab in 2009 to bridge the theory-practice divide in networking by spanning from proofs to prototypes, resulting in a few technology transfers to industry, several startup companies and the 2012 IEEE Kiyo Tomiyasu Award. He serves as the inaugural Chairman of Princeton Entrepreneurship Council and the Director of Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education at Princeton. His Massive Open Online Courses on networking reached over 250,000 students since 2012 and the textbook received the 2013 Terman Award from American Society of Engineering Education. He was named a Guggenheim Fellow in 2014.

About the Talk

Pushing computation, control and storage into the “cloud” has been a key trend in networking in the past decade. The cloud is now “descending” to the network edge and often diffused among the client devices. The cloud is becoming the “fog.” Fog Network presents an architecture that uses one or a collaborative multitude of end-user clients or near-user edge devices to carry out storage, communication, computation, and control in a network. This talk will survey such an architecture that will support the Internet of Things, heterogeneous 5G mobile services, and home and personal area networks, and explore how fog networks may incorporate the latest advances in devices, network systems, and data science to reshape the “balance of power” in the ecosystem of computing and networking.

All are welcome!

You do not have to be a member of the IEEE to attend. Bring your friends and network during the free pizza starting at 12:15 P.M.


National Cybersecurity Symposium: Bulding Law Enforcement and Financial Services Sector Partnerships

Location: Kean University’s STEM Building (1075 Morris Avenue, Union, NJ 07083). The STEM Building is located right next to URSINO Restaurant.
Register: Space for this event is limited, so please register early. Organizations will be treated on a first come, first served basis. Individual slots per organization may be limited to allow for the largest number of organizations to participate. A request for registration does not guarantee participation.

If you wish to attend this event, please RSVP to Theresa Kwon ( and provide the following information by Thursday, October 15th, 2015.

  • Name
  • Organization
  • Title
  • Email Address

This event is an open house hosted by FBI, U.S. Secret Service (USSS), and the Department of the Treasury and sponsored by the Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council (FSSCC), the financial services sector’s coordinator for the protection of critical financial infrastructure.

The purpose of this event is to enhance collaboration between financial services sector institutions and federal law enforcement entities on cybersecurity. Session attendees will gain further insight into the capabilities within both the FBI and USSS, a better understanding of cybersecurity threats, and information about how to incorporate collaboration with law enforcement into internal incident response plans. Collaborating with law enforcement in the event of an incident, as well as contacting the relevant financial regulatory agencies, can enhance an institution's ability to contain, mitigate, and recover from cyber incidents.

2015 National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Conference

Date/Time: November 3-4, 2015
Location: Paradise Point Resort & Spa 1404 Vacation Road, San Diego, CA 92109, United States
Register:Register Now

NICE fosters and promotes an ecosystem of cybersecurity education, training, and workforce development that effectively secures cyberspace. The NICE 2015 Conference is a rallying point around cybersecurity education and workforce development providing a face-to-face convening of public-private partners, an opportunity to signal NICE strategic directions and priorities, and a forum to showcase best practices. Cybersecurity has emerged as one of the leading creators of jobs and opportunity for all economic sectors. The demand for cybersecurity positions in both the public and private sector is large and growing, but the talent pool of cybersecurity workers is not yet able to keep up.


CISSE Spring 2016 Call For Papers

Date/Time: No later than December 30, 2015
Location: Philadelphia
Please submit your Academic Paper to following the CISSE Publication Policies that can be found at:
Cost: Early Bird Registration opens January 1, 2016

Back by popular demand a “Special Edition” of the CISSE Journal, which will be offered in both digital and paperback versions on this Spring.

The publication Title: Special Edition of the Colloquium for Information Systems Education: Innovative Classroom Approaches for Cyber Security Education, Edition 3, Issue 2

Special consideration will be given to papers earlier submitted but re-directed to our "Round Table" sessions in June.

Your submission will be double blind reviewed and our editorial staff will contact you if we are considering publishing your paper for the Special Edition by January 30, 2015. Submissions must be in "Word" and must be anonymized to allow for double-blind reviewing. Authors are expected to make a good faith effort to anonymize their submissions and should not identify themselves either explicitly or by implication (e.g., through references or acknowledgments). Submissions violating formatting or anonymization instructions will be returned without review.

Papers on original unpublished results may be at most 10 pages in length (single-column, single-spacing, at least 11 point font, with reasonable margins, including figures, tables, and references). Accepted papers will be published in the Spring Special Edition and it will require the authors to work with the Editorial staff to make any necessary changes and to be formatted as a word document for a 6 x 9 inch page with .5 inch margins. All digitized images submitted with the final revision of the manuscript must be of high quality and have resolutions of at least 300 d.p.i. for color, 600 d.p.i. for greyscale and 1,200 d.p.i. for line art.

CISSE will continue to have Academic Paper presentation sessions in Philadelphia, and publish those papers in Edition 4, Issue 1 in the fall of 2016. Stay tuned for that announcement later this year.


Singapore Cybersecurity R&D Conference: Call for Abstracts

Date/Time: January 14-15, 2016
Location: Location: Singapore University of Technology and Design, Singapore
Register: Details of submission can be found in the Conference website:

This is not an opportunity to be missed! Submit a technical paper in the research, industry, or tools track. Engage in conversations with the top researchers and practitioners from across the world in the area of cyber security. Visit the most advanced realistic testbeds in cyber physical systems and enjoy a game of attack and defence. And of course, enjoy the ever beautiful Singapore.

Students are strongly encouraged to participate and compete for many cash prizes.

Theme: Cyber Security by Design

The inaugural Singapore Cyber Security R&D Conference will be held in Singapore on January 14-15, 2016 at the campus of the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). The conference will bring together academics and practitioners from across the world to participate in a vibrant programme consisting of research papers, industrial best practices, and tools exhibition. Students, undergraduate and graduate, are encouraged to participate in specially organised sessions. Several cash awards and certificates will be given to the best contributions in various student categories.

This year’s theme focuses on the importance of bringing a technically grounded element of design that integrates cyber security into a system early in the process rather than an afterthought. The element of design is integral to a process be it a purely software system, such as one engaged in managing online transactions, or a combination of hardware and software, such as in Industrial Control Systems, pacemakers, and a multitude of IoT devices. This design element pervades the entire development process from the beginning till the end, and even during operation and maintenance. SG-CRC 2016 will focus on how design as an element can be made explicit early in the development process using novel techniques based on sound mathematical tools and engineering approaches.


Authors are invited to submit original work on any of the topics listed below. Submissions that fall in the general area of cyber security but not exactly in any of the topics below will also be considered. Submissions may focus on theoretical results, experiments, or a mix of both.

  • Attacker and attack models
