  • Repeating EventMeet USC: Admission Presentation, Campus Tour, and Engineering Talk

    Mon, Jul 01, 2019

    Viterbi School of Engineering Undergraduate Admission

    Workshops & Infosessions


    This half day program is designed for prospective freshmen (HS juniors and younger) and family members. Meet USC includes an information session on the University and the Admission process, a student led walking tour of campus, and a meeting with us in the Viterbi School. During the engineering session we will discuss the curriculum, research opportunities, hands-on projects, entrepreneurial support programs, and other aspects of the engineering school. Meet USC is designed to answer all of your questions about USC, the application process, and financial aid.

    Reservations are required for Meet USC. This program occurs twice, once at 8:30 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m.

    Please make sure to check availability and register online for the session you wish to attend. Also, remember to list an Engineering major as your "intended major" on the webform!

    Talk Title: QoS-based service selection for multi-user composite applications

    Series: CS Colloquium

    Abstract: Cloud computing paradigms such as Service-Based Systems (SBSs) or Software as a Service (SaaS) are based on multiple cloud services providing various functionalities and responding to a number of client requests. For a given task, selecting the actual service instance per request can be an issue, if requirements for multiple Quality of Service (QoS) attributes need to be satisfied for many users simultaneously. The problem becomes more complex if we take into account the compositeness of the users' applications, which are workflows consisting of many tasks, where the QoS properties are calculated over the whole composition. We describe a fast heuristic method for multi-criteria service selection, designed for multi-user composite (multi-task) workflows with the goal of satisfying all, or as many as possible, of the given QoS requirements.

    Biography: Adrian Satja Kurdija is a PhD student and research assistant at the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, Consumer Computing Lab. He received a masters degree in Computer Science and Mathematics from the University of Zagreb in 2015. From 2008 to 2010 he participated in International Mathematics Olympiad and International Olympiad in Informatics, winning a bronze and a silver medal. His research focuses on recommender systems for service-oriented architectures. He has published in IEEE Communications Letters, Wireless Networks, European Journal of Operational Research, International Journal of Web and Grid Services, and Knowledge-based systems.
