Keynote Lecture

V.S. Subrahmanian
Dartmouth College
United States

Brief Bio
V.S. Subrahmanian is The Dartmouth College Distinguished Professor in Cybersecurity, Technology, and Society at Dartmouth Collage with tenure in the Computer Science Department and Director of the Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS) at Dartmouth Collage. Prior to joining Dartmouth, he was a tenured Professor in the [University of Maryland's Computer Science Department] (www.cs.umd.edu). He served a 6.5 year stint as Director of the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies where he co-founded the Lab for Computational Cultural Dynamics and founded the Center for Digital InternationalGovernment. His work stands squarely at the intersection of big data analytics for increased security, policy, and business needs. Prof. Subrahmanian serves has published over 300 papers and serves on the editorial boards of numerous journals including Science and IEEE Intelligent Systems (which he is the editor in Chief of). He has been an invited speaker at the United Nations, Capitol Hill, the Mumbai Stock Exchange, and numerous other prestigious forums. He serves on numerous corporate boards and advisory boards.

Security for Connected Vehicles in Cyberspace

Jalel Ben-Othman
University of Paris 13

Brief Bio
Prof. Ben-Othman received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees both in Computer Science from the University of  Pierre et Marie Curie, (Paris 6) France in 1992, and 1994 respectively. He received his PhD degree from the University of Versailles, France, in 1998. He is currently full professor at the University of Paris 13 since 2011 and member of L2S lab at CentraleSupélec. Dr. Ben-Othman's research interests are in the area of wireless ad hoc and sensor networks, VANETs, IoT, performance evaluation and  security in wireless networks in general. He was the recipient of the IEEE COMSOC Communication Software technical committee Recognition Award in 2016, the IEEE computer society Meritorious Service Award in 2016,  and he is a Golden Core Member of IEEE Computer Society, AHSN Exceptional Service and Contribution Award in 2018 and the VEHCOM Fabio Neri award in 2018. He is currently in steering committee of IEEE Transaction on Mobile computing (IEEE TMC), an editorial board member of several journals (IEEE Networks, IEEE COMML, JCN, IJCS, SPY, Sensors…). He has also served as TPC Co-Chair for  IEEE Globecom and ICC conferences and other conferences as   (WCNC, IWCMC, VTC, ComComAp, ICNC, WCSP,  Q2SWinet, P2MNET, WLN,....).  He was the chair of the IEEE Ad Hoc and sensor networks technical committee January 2016-2018, he was previously the vice chair and secretary for this committee. He has been appointed as IEEE COMSOC distinguished lecturer from 2015 to 2018 where he did several tours all around the world. He is member of IEEE technical services board since 2016.

Vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) has been researched and achieved by several organizations to develop the intelligent transportation system (ITS). VANET is also a specific
case of mobile ad hoc network (MANET) in which nodes are vehicles. The goal of the construction of a VANET network is to make sure of its safety and reliability. Hence, the
development of VANET aims to improve transportation reliability, optimize driving and navigation and enhance the vehicle users safety. Vehicles can self - react in order to avoid
accidents by preventing the proximity location and transporting them to the conductor.
Communications in the VANET are very challenging and existing solutions, for instance, from which the Ad Hoc networking field are not adapted. Some solutions have been
proposed and researched for security in the VANET. However, they have not resolved strictly VANET communication problems.
This is due to some special features of the VANET, including the high speed of vehicles, mobility patterns of vehicles. New efforts at different levels of the communications
systems are required to be present at the routing and security levels.
In this talk we tackle the problems of security in those networks. Existing problems/solutions are showed, issues and perspectives will be exposed as well.
