NYIT President Edward Guiliano, Ph.D. praised the success of the global conference on information technology and communications which was co-organized by New York Institute of Technology (NYIT)-Amman and Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST) last week.
“As globally recognized institutes of higher education, NYIT and its partner, JUST, proudly support research and collaboration on cutting-edge technologies,” said Guiliano, Ph.D. “It is our hope and goal to improve people's lives wherever they may be. We know the forces of science, technology and democratization of education are leveling the barriers that separate nations, peoples, and economies, and in turn, solving the collective challenges we face in the 21st century.”
The three-day event was held at the NYIT and JUST campuses, brought together more than 200 academics, experts, and leaders in higher education from around the world to explore issues from artificial intelligence, Web content mining and e-learning to information security, the mobile revolution, cryptography, and human-computer interaction.
Keynote speakers included Cetin Kaya Koc, professor of computer science at Istanbul Sehir University in Turkey and co-founder of the Workshop on Cryptographic Hardware and Embedded Systems (chesworkshop.org); Gregor Bochmann, professor of IT and engineering at the University of Ottawa, and Belgacem Haba, chief technology officer for Interconnects, Components and Materials, a division of Tessara Technologies, Inc., based in Silicon Valley.
“NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences takes pride in being represented at this important conference where security and communication systems, advances in computer networks and transmission, cryptography, miniaturization and complexities of hand-held electronic products, will be discussed,” said Nada Anid, Ph.D and Dean of NYIT’s school of engineering and computer sciences. “NYIT and its partner JUST have put together a first-class conference on the latest technologies in Information and Communication Systems.”
