Keynote speaker Andrea Kollmann gives us the answer at the DACH+ Conference on Energy Informatics next week at the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences. PREVIEW: In the current issue of the it’s MAGAZINE, she gives an insight into her keynote in advance.
Dieter Draxler received the Best Presentation Award at the IEEE Transportation Electrification Conference and Expo, Asia-Pacific.
Draxler presented his work at the ITEC-AP 2019 conference in Jeju, South Korea. Together with his colleagues from the Center for Secure Energy Informatics and Bosch GmbH, he researched the transfer of the Domain Specific Systems Engineering approach from the energy-domain to the automotive-domain.
At the conference, he got to network with conference organizer General Co-Chair Gae-myoung Lee from Jeju National University. He was invited to review papers for the best paper award and to visit the Smart Grid Security Lab at Jeju National University on his next trip to Jeju.
Since last year, at least partially electric vehicles constitute more than 50% of all new cars sales in Norway. The Silicon Valley wants to switch completely to electric mobility within the next ten years. These developments pose a challenge on intelligent power supply systems, so called Smart Grids. Smart Grids consist of many different subsystems, of which each of them is designed to find the best solution for itself. Therefore, it is difficult to predict how this system of systems is coping with new developments like in Norway and the Silicon Valley.
Scenarios for load peaks
Christoph Binder, Christian Neureiter, Jounes-Alexander Gross, and Goran Lastro from the Center for Secure Energy Informatics at Salzburg University of Applied Sciences researched scenarios how the charging behavior of electric vehicles and possible load peaks effect the Smart Grid. The results of their research lay the foundation for developing new approaches that deal with adjusting the demand for power in a way so that future energy systems are able to cope with those peak loads.
At the conference, Binder not only got to meet conference initiator Mo Jamshidi from the University of Texas, but also Garry Roedler, president of the International Council on Systems Engineering, an organization that develops systems engineering standards & guidelines.
Support our researchers! CSE researcher Fabian Knirsch and Clemens Brunner are nominated for the S&B Award of the Rudolf Sallinger Fonds with their FH-spin-off sproof. DerBrutkasten awards a special price on top ➡️VOTE FOR SPROOF!!!
Sproof – Salzburg University of Applied Sciences From researchers for the industry
With sproof, a reserach project initiated at the Center for Secure Energy Informatics at Salzburg University of Applied Sciences, CSE researcher Fabian Knirsch and Clemens Brunner developed together with their project partner Erich Höpoldseder a decentral system for digital document management. With this tool digital documents can be issued, managed and verified. This can be used for ID cards, certificates, transport documents or decentral public key infrastructure. Via the associated app, the documents can also be managed mobile.
The presented work addresses the development of a versatile architecture framework, the FRee EDucational Open System ARchitecture (FREDOSAR). FREDOSAR gives you an architecture and a reference implementation to realize projects in the context of smart grids, smart home, IoT and industry 4.0.
COSIC is headed by the Belgian cryptographer Bart Preneel and focuses on the protection of digital information. It develops advanced cybersecurity solutions to protect data in the cloud and in the Internet of Things (IoT) and to protect the privacy of users.
Two thirds of all Austrian companies were victims of a cyber attack. This was the outcome of a study by the accounting firm KPMG. The study was presented on Tuesday, May 14th 2019 at Salzburg University of Applied Sciences.
According to a current study, every second company neglects the security of its computer systems. That is the case particularly with small and medium sized enterprises (SME), says Professor DI Dr. Dominik Engel, director of the Center for Secure Energy Informatics at Salzburg University of Applied Sciences: “Especially in SME cyber security sometimes comes off badly. In addition the employees and coworkers might not be so trained and do not have such a consciousness for IT-security yet.
Beside numerous interested participants from economics and research also State Secretary Karoline Edtstadler visited the meeting.
Christoph Binder participated in the 3rd European Conference on Design, Modeling and Optimization (ECDMO) from 16 – 18 February 2019 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. His presentation about the paper “Towards A Model-Driven Architecture Process for Developing Industry 4.0 Applications” has been awarded as the best within the session for Mechanical Design and Manufacturing Technology by conference chair Ian McAndrew.
The presented paper deals with the challenges that appear by the interdisciplinary development of a future industrial system. It pursues the previously introduced domain-specific language for describing such a system by defining a specific development process. By doing so, the main focus is not to reinvent the wheel but to use well-known and widely spread standards. In the presentation, Christoph Binder especially pointed out to address usability and applicability with the introduced approach. However, the practicability is assured through valuable contributions of LieberLieber Software GmbH and the successfactory consulting group.
The ICISSP aims to create a meeting point for researchers and practitioners to address security and privacy challenges that concern information systems, especially in organizations, including not only technological but also social issues.
The Winter School aims to bring together students, academic researchers, industry professionals, and government employees for an in-depth exchange on the latest trends and developments around cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology, and decentralized applications.
