Abstract
 The key motivation for this work is that future smart services (e.g. IoT applications) will have competing and perhaps conflicting networking performance requirements. These services will also require flexible and agile deployment. 5G networks, an essential component of future virtualized infrastructures, deal with this issue – in part – by relying on network slicing. To define a network slice, one has to consider the allocation of resources – both in the radio and core parts – of the 5G network to form a logical entity where a service could be deployed. Network slicing has emerged as a key-enabler for proving heterogeneous services. It takes advantage of the virtualization elements of future networking infrastructures where multiple services can be hosted on the same physical infrastructure.

This talk will give a quick overview of network slicing with emphasis on 5G core networks. It will also discuss the requirement for network slice isolation and different methods that were proposed to implement it. Finally, an overview of our research group ongoing work on mitigating Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks using slice isolation. Our approach is to tackle slice isolation as a resource allocation problem to deal with the trade-off between offering security while achieving a certain level of performance. In other words, we utilize a mathematical optimization model to solve a security problem. In our proposed solution, we use slice isolation as security constraints for the optimization model to proactively mitigate DDoS attacks. Our experimental test results show how DDoS could be mitigated and the impact on slice availability. We believe this work will encourage further research in securing 5G network slicing.

Dr. Ashraf Matarawy (http://www.csit.carleton.ca/~amatrawy/) is a Full Professor at the School of Information Technology, Faculty of Engineering, Carleton University. He is also a senior member of the IEEE and a licensed P. Eng. in Ontario. Dr. Matrawy leads the Next Generation Networks group at Carleton and is a Network co-Investigator of Smart Cybersecurity Network (SERENE-RISC). His research interests include reliable and secure computer networking, secure virtualized infrastructures, and security routing in IoT. In addition to his academic work, he did consulting work for different industrial and government organizations (https://ca.linkedin.com/in/ashraf-matrawy-5917b56). He spent his sabbatical leaves working for industry, at Cloackware Research Center in 2010-2011 and at TELUS in 2017-2018. He serves on the editorial board of the IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials journal and Wiley’s Security and Privacy Journal. He has served as a technical program committee member of IEEE CNS, IEEE ICC, IEEE Globecom, IEEE LCN, and IEEE/ACM CCGRID and other conferences. Dr. Matrawy has more than 10 year experience in undergraduate and graduate curriculum development for the Network Technology programs at Carleton University. He served as associate director for the School for three and half years and as coordinator for the Networking program for six years.

Modern Day Applications of Power Electronics – Who Can Benefit?

Modern Day Applications of Power Electronics – Who Can Benefit?

AbstractApplication of power electronics is widespread in everyday
life. Some applications are considered as “nice to have it;” in other cases,
they are essential. This presentation discusses a wide variety of daily-used
applications around the world. Also covered is an advanced topic, such as SMART
Controller that today’s grid requires for voltage regulation, power factor
regulation, unbalance voltage/current regulation, harmonic elimination and so
on. A SMART Controller that is based on functional requirements and
cost-effective solutions is derived from utilizing the best features of all the
technical concepts that are developed until now. Final year students of
electrical engineering undergraduate curriculum, post graduate students,
researchers, academicians and utility engineers will benefit from attending
this course. The participants will hear from an expert who actually designed
and commissioned a few utility-grade SMART controllers since their inception in
the 1990s.
