CS Colloquium Series Presents: Professor James Zheng

UT Dallas Computer Science Colloquium Series Presents

Professor James Zheng
Macquarie University

Assistant Professor



In this talk, I will first walk through some real industrial requirements and research challenges in Service Computing and Internet of Things (IoT). I will then talk about research works which can potentially solve these issues, mainly covering fog computing, micro service, and some formal approach to secure IoT. The talk will be broad but covering some state of the art interesting research questions and directions in Service Computing and IoT, which shall be suitable both for researchers for in-depth enquiry and collaboration, and students who want to know how researchers can solve real-world issues.
