Title: An Introduction to the Research Output from University-Industry Collaboration Projects

Abstract: Today global research challenges are so complex and collaboration between disciplines is helpful in finding novel engineering. In this talk, we introduce some research output from university-Industry collaboration projects in Japan in which I was involved. In particular, we will introduce projects concerning Autonomous Sewer Inspection Robot “Kantaro”, Under-actuated Robot Finger, Seat Assist Lift “Tateru” and Vegetable Production and Distribution System (ICT Agriculture).

Biography: He received M.E. and PhD in Industrial Science and Technology Engineering and Robotics from Niigata University and Kyushu Institute of Technology, Japan in 2004 and 2007, respectively. In 2004, he joined GMD-JAPAN as a Research Assistant. He was Research Scientist and Coordinator at FAIS- Robotics Development Support Office from 2004 to 2007. He was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) at Waseda University, Japan from 2007 to 2008. He served as a Senior Researcher of Fukoka IST involved in the Japan Cluster Project from 2008 to 2010. In 2010, he became an Assistant Professor at the faculty of Informatics Since 2012, he has been Associate Professor at the department of Computer and Information Science, Sojo University, Japan.
He has served as a main researcher and Principal Investigator in more than 15 projects and is working closely with more than 50 Japanese companies, Local government laboratories and Universities.

Title: Stochastic-Based Robust Dynamic Resource Allocation in Heterogeneous Distributed Computing System

Abstract: Heterogeneous parallel and distributed computing systems frequently must operate in environments where there is uncertainty in system parameters. In such an environment, the execution time of any given task may fluctuate substantially due to factors such as the content of data to be processed. Determining a resource allocation that is robust against this uncertainty is an important area of research. In this study, we define a stochastic robustness measure to facilitate resource allocation decisions in a dynamic environment where tasks are subject to individual hard deadlines and each task requires a substantial amount of input data to start execution. In this environment, the tasks that cannot meet their deadlines are dropped (i.e., discarded). We define methods to determine the stochastic completion times of tasks in the presence of the task dropping. The stochastic task completion time is used in the definition of the stochastic robustness measure. Based on this stochastic robustness measure, we design novel resource allocation techniques that work in immediate and batch allocation modes, aiming to maximize the number of tasks that meet their individual deadlines. We analyze the performance of our technique against several well-known approaches in from the literature. Finally, avenues of future works stems from this research are discussed in the talk.


Dr. Mohsen Amini Salehi is an Assistant Professor at the Computer Science Department, at University of Louisiana Lafayette, USA. He is the director of High Performance and Cloud Computing (HPCC) Laboratory at the department and is an ACM member. Dr. Amini has received his Ph.D. in Computing and Information Systems from Melbourne University, Australia, in 2012, under supervision of Professor Rajkumar Buyya. He was awarded postdoctoral fellowship at Colorado State University (2012—2013), and University of Miami (2013—2014).

Dr. Amini has been an active researcher in Distributed and Cloud computing research areas for more than a decade. He has received several awards in recognition of his research including the “best intern award” from Infosys Ltd., in 2012, and the IEEE award for “Applied Research”, in 2009. Dr. Amini has filed a US patent as a result of his research on energy-aware resource allocation in Cloud datacenter. He serves as technical program committee for several prestigious international conferences such as IEEE International Conference on Big Data and Cloud Computing (BDCloud), and IEEE International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing and Communications (IUCC). He constantly reviews papers for respected journals such as IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems (TPDS), IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing (TCC), Journal of Parallel and Distributed Systems (JPDC), and Future Generation Computing System Journal (FGCS) among others. His research interests are in virtualization, resource allocation, energy-efficiency, heterogeneity, and trustworthy in Cloud computing and Big Data.
