IEEE Computer Society Distinguished Visitor Program Series

2020: Toward Practical Quantum Networks

Tuesday, 5 December 2017, 3:00pm – 5:00pm


IEEE Singapore Computer Society presents you a technical event as follows.


What is a quantum network? What makes quantum communications different from classical wired/wireless communications? Why is so hard to design a quantum network? Why so much excitement about quantum paradigm? What already accomplished? What next?

Very recently, researchers worldwide have started to devote massive efforts in designing and implementing quantum computation, with 17-qubit computing processors already prototyped and several groups making very fast progress towards the 50-qubit regime.

Nevertheless, to fully unleash the ultimate vision of the quantum revolution, it is necessary to design and to implement quantum networks, able to connect distant quantum processors through remote quantum entanglement distribution. However, despite the tremendous progress of quantum technologies, long-distance efficient entanglement distribution still constitutes a key issue, and several key research issues must be addressed to design and eventually deploy quantum networks.

Hence, this talk aims at providing the participants with a wide view about quantum networks and the unique challenges for transmitting quantum information.


Marcello Caleffi received the Dr. Eng. degree summa cum laude (highest score) in computer science engineering from the University of Lecce, Lecce, Italy, in 2005, and the Ph.D. degree in electronic and telecommunications engineering from the University of Naples Federico II, Naples, Italy, in 2009. Currently, he is with the National Laboratory of Multimedia Communications, National Inter-University Consortium for Telecommunications (CNIT), and with the DIETI Department, University of Naples Federico II. Since April 2017, he held the Italian national habilitation as Associate Professor in Telecommunications Engineering. He was also with the Broadband Wireless Networking Laboratory at Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, as visiting researcher. He was also with the NaNoNetworking Center in Catalunya (N3Cat) at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, as visiting researcher.

His work appeared in several premier IEEE Transactions and Journals, and he received multiple awards, including best strategy award, most downloaded article awards and most cited article awards. Currently, he serves as an Editor for the IEEE Communications Letters and Elsevier Ad Hoc Networks; moreover, he serves as an Associate Technical Editor for the IEEE Communications Magazine. He has served as the chair, the TPC chair, the session chair, and the TPC member for several premier IEEE conferences. In 2016, he was elevated to IEEE Senior Member, and in 2017 he has been appointed as a Distinguished Lecturer from the IEEE Computer Society.

IEEE Singapore Computer Society presents you a technical event co-organized by IEEE Singapore Computer Society and Temasek Polytechnic.


Executive Summary:

The presentation will define risk management and link that definition to the issues that a modern enterprise faces in a global economy that is inter-connected and what the limitations of readiness are as a result. Adam will be using the concept of the cyber range as a centerpiece to the discussions on preparation and how it may be used in new and innovative ways to address risk management concerns.


Discussion outline:

  • NIST definition of risk management and linkage with ISO/IEEE 15288
  • Breakdown of definition of risk management and mapping to the modern enterprise risk landscape
  • SWOT analysis of traditional GRC regimes
  • Traditional definition of a cyber range
  • The 5 W’s of the cyber range
  • Cyber range scenarios


Speaker Profile:

Adam has over 30 years of experience in IT industry. He is both an educator and professional. He holds many IT Professional Certifications including CISA, CISSP, MCSE, MCITP, CHFI, CEH, SCNA, VCP-Cloud, CompTIA Cloud Essentials and VCI. He holds a Bachelor Degree in International Relations and Master Degree in International Political Affairs from Florida International University.

Masterclass on Actionable Gamification: Using Behavioural Science in Training and HR


11 November (Friday) and 14 November (Monday), 9am – 5pm, Singapore Computer Society

Voted #1 Gamification Guru in the World. First time in Singapore!


IEEE Singapore Computer Society presents you a technical event organized by Singapore Computer Society.

Gamification, or utilizing game mechanics to increase employee and customer engagement, has become a leading practice among companies across the world.

For the first-time ever in Singapore, hear from Mr Yu-Kai Chou, Founder of The Octalysis Group, in this 2-day masterclass and learn how to use gamification in your business to increase your revenue, users and overall business growth and also internal gamification to better engage and motivate your employees.

“Yu-kai’s Octalysis framework brilliantly explains the intricate relationships between human behaviors and their inner drives. Accompanied by numerous application examples, Octalysis is the turn key for gamification in any product and service design.” – Dr Jianming Dong, Chief User Experience Architect at Huawei

“I’ve been following Yu-kai’s work on gamification for years and have enjoyed his deep insights and actionable recommendations. Octalysis is a powerful and pragmatic framework to understand human nature and positive motivators that encourage people to do their best work. It should be required reading for anyone building, managing, or collaborating with a team, community, or ecosystem.”  Susie Wee, VP & CTO of Networked Experiences at Cisco Systems
