3 IT College News JUNE 2012 VOLUME #1 ISSUE #5 College of IT Receives Two Awards The College of Information Technology is the recipient of two awards in the 2012 GIS Workshops and Exhibitions for Esri Users (GISWORX 2012, that were held at Al Bustan Rotana Hotel in Dubai, May 1-3, The award ceremony was attended by many high-profile people from different public and private organizations. The first award, Excellence in GIS Implementation, recognizes organizations that promote innovation and experimentation in GIS implementation and integration of GIS programs into curricula. The second award was presented for Maryam Mohamed Abdulla Mohamed, a student in the College of IT who won the first prize in GISWORX Mobile Developer Challenge (GMDC). Maryam developed a Mobile GIS app called Green Future that, among other things, makes people aware of the challenges of inappropriate handling of e-waste. Maryam was supervised by two CIT faculty: Dr. Zakaria Maamar and Dr. Mario Guimaraes. IEEE UAE STUDENT DAY 2012 IEEE UAE Student Day 2012 Two groups of students, under the supervision of Dr. Manar Abu Talib, participated in the Seventh IEEE UAE Student Day that was hosted by HCT on May 12 th. The students had the chance to meet with other students from different universities from the UAE such as Petroleum Institute, Manipal, AUST, AUD, AUD, UAEU, Khalifa University, Ajman University, HCT, University of Sharjah, BITS Pilani, etc. They had the pleasure to share their learning experiences with a group of experts, faculty members and the Vice Chancellor Dr. Tayeb Kamali, who was pleased to see representatives of from Zayed University participating in this important event.

4 IT College News JUNE 2012 VOLUME #1 ISSUE #5 Cryptography Conference On May 20th a number of our security students, under the supervision of Dr. Andrew, Dr. Huwida and Dr. Maurice, attended a lecture at a conference on Cryptography that was hosted by Khalifa University. The conference was aimed at professionals and researchers in the field of cryptography. However it included a lecture suitable for undergraduate students on Cryptography in general by the famous Professor Fred Piper. This was the part that was of interest to our students. Professor Fred Piper is Professor of Mathematics at the University of London since 1975 and has worked in Information Security since He has lectured worldwide on information security, both academically and commercially, has published more than 100 papers and is joint author of Cipher Systems (1982), one of the first books to be published on the subject of protection of communications, Secure Speech Communications (1985), Digital Signatures Security & Controls (1999) and Cryptography: A Very Short Introduction (2002). Professor Piper s talk was on practical issues related to cryptography, not on theory. So, all the students I feel were able to follow him, and benefitted from his ideas. He presented a number of thoughtprovoking questions. For example he discussed the conflict between privacy and encryption. He said that encryption makes privacy easier to achieve. But he said it's two sided - it prevents intelligence gathering by law enforcement in certain situations. He said that this raises the question of whether we all have the same equal rights to privacy. Should the police possess technology capable of breaking encryption codes so they can prove their case? Many might argue that they should have that right in such obvious cases where it helps catch and convict a paedophile or helps prevent a terrorist attack. FACULTY NEWS Dr. Omar Al Fandi participated in the NTMS 2012 conference (http://www.ntmsconf.org/ntms2012/index.html) and served as a session chair of MWN3: Wireless Security & Advances in Wireless Networking. In his paper entitled A Novel Indirect Trust-based Link State Routing Scheme using a Robust Route Trust Method for Wireless Sensor Networks, he used the help of a Geometrical Mean based indirect trust evaluation mechanism to calculate trust of individual nodes and thereby use the calculated trusts for determination of the different route trusts (RTs). Based only on these indirect trusts, he presented a link state routing protocol which forms the routes and finds the best trustworthy route among them by comparing the values of all the calculated route trusts as for each route present in the network. He developed three algorithms related to this and showed their merits. Finally, he compared his work with similar trust integrated routing protocols and showed its advantages over them.

5 IT College News JUNE 2012 VOLUME #1 ISSUE #5 IT College Executive Leadership Series ITSA, under the supervision of Dr. Munir Majdalawieh and Dr. Emad Bataineh, is organizing an executive leadership series. The first event took place May 24 th. Mr. Qais Gharaibeh, SAP Managing Director, UAE delivered a talk about Building a Successful Career in Information Technology. Building a successful career requires a combination of skills, knowledge and mindset. Information Technology is a wide sector with many exciting career options. According to Mr. Qais As a student in this field, you have a unique opportunity to be a pioneer in this domain: equip your mind with knowledge, be passionate about what you learn, believe in yourself and develop your skills to match and evolve your career path and every time you look in the mirror you will be looking at one of the next great leaders in this ever evolving industry. FACULTY NEWS Dr. Manar Abu Talib was an invited speaker at a conference on Social Research at the Emirate Center For Strategic Studies and Research. She spoke about the use of Open Source Software to enhance social research in the UAE. Arwa Al Nauimi and a number of our IT students also attended this conference on May 29 th.
