Cloud Computing - A Paradigm IT Changer (IEEE)
Electrical Industries Building (TECA Office)

IEEE Toledo Section, Computer Society Chapter & EECS Department Present: Mazin Yousif, PhD.

Cloud Computing - A Paradigm IT Changer

Cloud Computing is an emerging computing paradigm envisioned to change all IT landscape facets including technology, business and services. It is a consumer/delivery model that offers IT capabilities as services billed based on usage. Many such cloud services can be envisioned, but the main ones are IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service), PaaS (Platform-as- a-Service), and SaaS (Software-as-a-Service). The underlying cloud architecture includes a pool of virtualized compute, storage and networking resources that can be aggregated and launched as platforms to run workloads and satisfy their Service-Level Agreement (SLA). Cloud architectures also include provisions to best guarantee service delivery for clients and at the same time optimize efficiency of resources of providers. Examples of provisions include, but not limited to, elasticity through scaling resources up/down to track workload behavior, extensive monitoring, failure mitigation, and energy optimizations. The two main technologies enabling clouds are: (i) Virtualization, the foundation of clouds; and (ii) manageability (autonomics), the command & control of clouds. This talk is intended to provide an overview of cloud computing, its enabling technologies and current challenges. It will also look at clouds’ IT/business ramifications as well as required future

Distinguished Lecture on IoT by Fawzi Behmann
Nitschke Technology Commercialization Complex (U. Toledo)

What do smart grids, virtual power plants and smart homes have in common? They are part of the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT is the inter-networking of physical devices embedded with control systems, sensors, and actuators, that can collect and exchange data.

The IoT makes it possible to collect real-time power-related information from end-users and automate the management of distribution devices like transformers and reclosers. Efficiencies can therefore be gained within power production and distribution systems.

For the end-user, it is expected that IoT will be integrated into all forms of energy consuming devices (such as switches, power outlets, bulbs, televisions, etc.). Such IoT devices would offer the opportunity for off-site management and advanced scheduling.

IEEE Distinguished Visitor Fawzi Behmann is an expert on IoT.

Grid Connected Solar Photovoltaic
Electrical Industries Building (TECA Office)

IEEE Toledo will be hosting a dinner and Grid Connected Solar Photovoltaic presentation on Thursday November 3. This event will be held at the Electrical Industries Building (TECA Office), 727 Lime City Road, Rossford. Dinner starts at 5:30 pm and the lecture starts at 7:00 pm. The cost for dinner is $25 for non-members, $20 for members, and $10 for students. You can attend the lecture only, which is free.

Small island states strive to continue economic growth, mitigate climate change and reduce their dependence on imported fossil fuels. They offer a geographical landscape which encourages distributed generation in order to provide power to end users that are located in remote areas. Often times, this distributed generation is accomplished through grid connected solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. Because they do not emit greenhouse gas, and they use the free light from the sun to generate electricity, solar PV systems provide renewable energy in a sustainable way. This presentation will discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with grid connected solar PV in island states. It will also propose potential waste management strategies of such solar PV systems from cradle to grave.

Securing Intelligent Control Systems
Electrical Industries Building (TECA Office)

Cyberattacks on infrastructure control systems are getting more frequent and sophisticated since Stuxnet’s effect on Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2010.

More recent attacks such as Flame, Shamoon, Havex, Dragonfly and Black Energy are equally troubling. Many attacks have resulted in outages and physical damage of infrastructure.

In December 2015, a coordinated cyberattack on the Ukrainian power grid lead to an outage for 80,000 customers.

Extensive damage resulted from a cyberattack that prevented the proper shutdown of a blast furnace at a German steel mill.

IEEE Distinguished Lecturer Dr. George Proeller will present on "Securing Intelligent Control Systems". This lecture will be at the Electrical Industries Building (TECA Office), 727 Lime City Road, Rossford, on April 12 starting at 5:30 pm.
