The IEEE Xtreme Programming Competition 12.0 has concluded! IEEE Xtreme is an annual hackathon and competitive programming challenge where student teams from all over the world compete to solve a set of programming tasks. This year, 4046 teams participated in the event from 73+ countries among them 8 teams from Estonia divided between TalTech and Tartu universities. The teams had to solve 24+2 tasks in 24 hours. Less than half of the teams were able to achieve a score.

We would like to congratulate the team from Tartu University for reaching the 6th place in the competition! We would also like to thank all the proctors who devoted their time to supervise the teams in both TalTech University (6 teams) and Tartu University (2 teams).

A bit of statistics from neighboring countries: Latvia (1 team, score 342.13), Lithuania (one team, no score), Poland (one team, no score), Finland (1 team, score 129.83), Russia (1 team, score 411.36), Belgium (10 teams, best score 1320.87), Austria (21 teams, best score 1273.31), Switzerland (5 teams, best score 2107.1 = third place).

Further information about the teams and results will be published soon at https://ieeextreme.org/

The elections of four new Chapter Chairs are over and were almost very successful. For three chapters, new Chapter Chairs were elected. The new Chapter Chairs are as follows:

  1. Education Chapter: Tiia Rüütmann (activity 71%, all for);
  2. Computer / Communications / Information Theory Joint Chapter: Alar Kuusik (activity 37%, all for);
  3. Signal Processing / Circuits and Systems / Solid-State Circuits Joint Chapter: Gholamreza Anbarjafari (activity 58%, all for).

For the fourth chapter, Instrumentation and Measurement / Electron Devices / Engineering in Medicine and Biology Joint Chapter, the election results are contradicting and it is possible that new elections must be organized.

Friday, April 21st 10:00 – 11:30, Tallinn University of Technology room U02-409.

IEEE Communications Society Distinguished Lecturer Jalel Ben-Othman (Professor at University of Paris 13).

Wireless and mobile networks have many advantages as easy deployment, user mobility and providing network access to users regardless to their locations. The most critical problems that arise in these networks are on the resource allocations as the bandwidth is limited, the propagation (multi-path, fading, distortion) and security since communications are transmitted over radio waves. In parallel new architectures/technologies have been emerging as Vehicular Networks and Internet of Things.

In this lecture, Prof Ben-Othman will present issues about availability problems in those networks and architecture, He will focus on Vehicular Networks, and he will present some works we have done and other works to improve security in those systems.

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.
