    Talk Title: Managing and Testing Ensembles of IoT, Network functions, and Clouds

    Abstract: By leveraging virtualization and pay-per-use models, we believe that eventually applications will easily acquire IoT, network functions, and cloud services together to establish a virtual, unified resource ensemble across various subsystems from different IoT, network and cloud providers. But this will require us to research and develop various programming and management utilities. In this talk, we will first discuss the necessity and feasibility of application-level resource slice provisioning. We will overview our SINC - Slicing IoT, Network functions, and Clouds - as an approach for provisioning resource slices of end-to-end IoT, network functions, and cloud capabilities for novel requirements from a wide range of IoT/CPS applications. We will present several works on service engineering analytics for SINC, including harmonizing IoT, network functions, and cloud resources, supporting end-to-end monitoring and analytics, and testing uncertainties.

    Biography: Hong-Linh Truong is currently a Priv.Doz and an assistant professor for Service Engineering Analytics at TU Wien (Vienna University of Technology), Austria. He received an engineer degree from the Bach Khoa University (HoChiMinh City University of Technology), Vietnam, in 1998, a PhD degree, in 2005, and a Habilitation, in 2013, both from TU Wien, Austria; all in computer science and engineering. His main research interest focuses Systems, Software, Data and Service Engineering Analytics by developing novel techniques and tools for monitoring, analyzing, and optimizing functions, performance, data quality, elasticity, and uncertainties associated with systems, software, data and services. His research has been applied to: Monitoring, Analysis and Optimization Techniques for Programs, Data and Systems; Parallel, Grid and Cloud Computing, and IoT; Data Service Models and Analytics; Socio-technical Services Engineering; and Elastic Computing. Furthermore, he is interested in (free) ICT solutions for (under) developing countries. He had delivered several invited talks and he published more than 180 refereed papers in books, conferences/workshops and journals. He (co)receives an outstanding paper award, seven best paper awards, one best paper run-up award, and one best poster award.
