Computer and Information Science and Engineering Directorate
National Science Foundation
in Research and Education in Computing:
A View from the National Science Foundation"
The NSF Computer and Information Science and Engineering Directorate
funds 84% of all academic computer science research in the United
States. I will present highlights of CISE's research and education
programs, including current interests in cyber-enabled discovery and
innovation, cyber-physical systems, data-intensive computing, network
science and engineering, socially intelligent computing, and
trustworthy computing; and future interests in computing and economics
and in energy-intelligent computing. I will also put NSF's
investments in computing within the broader national and international
Dr. Jeannette M. Wing
is the President's Professor of Computer Science
in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University. She
received her S.B. and S.M. degrees in Electrical Engineering and
Computer Science in 1979 and her Ph.D. degree in Computer Science in
1983, all from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. From
2004-2007, she was Head of the Computer Science Department at Carnegie
Mellon. Currently on leave from CMU, she is the Assistant Director of
the Computer and Information Science and Engineering Directorate at
the National Science Foundation.
Professor Wing's general research interests are in the areas of
specification and verification, concurrent and distributed systems,
programming languages, and software engineering. Her current focus is
on the foundations of trustworthy computing.
Professor Wing was or is on the editorial board of twelve journals.
She has been a member of many advisory boards, including: the
Networking and Information Technology (NITRD) Technical Advisory Group
to the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Tecbnology
(PCAST), the National Academies of Sciences's Computer Science and
Telecommunications Board, ACM Council, the DARPA Information Science
and Technology (ISAT) Board, NSF's CISE Advisory Committee,
Microsoft's Trustworthy Computing Academic Advisory Board, the Intel
Research Pittsburgh's Advisory Board, and the Sloan Research
Fellowships Program Committee. She is a member of AAAS, ACM, IEEE,
Sigma Xi, Phi Beta Kappa, Tau Beta Pi, and Eta Kappa Nu. Professor
Wing is an AAAS Fellow, ACM Fellow, and IEEE Fellow.

Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute
|"Mobile Communication in Korea"
Since CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) mobile communication service
was introduced in 1996, we are experiencing over 30% annual increases
of subscribers in Korea. The number of subscribers has been increased
to over 45 million by the end of 2008. To accommodate this increasing
demand, Korea initiated the digital cellular CDMA service in 1996,
WCDMA service in 2004, and most recently Mobile WiBro service in
2006. With these state-of-art mobile services, we have provided high
quality mobile communication capabilities.
In this talk, first I will estimate the mobile communication market
trends and introduce the technical roadmap of WiBro (Mobile WiMAX) and
its application services in Korea. Next, I will present international
standardization schedule in ITU-R and R&D strategies in
ETRI (Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute) toward
IMT-Advanced mobile communication system. And I will also present the
development activities in 3GPP LTE Advanced system and IEEE 802.11x
WLAN in ETRI. Finally, I will discuss the government roles and
spectrum usage policies for Mobile communication in Korea.
In conclusion, I believe the mobile communication technologies and
service experiences of Korea will be the basis of ubiquitous computing
in future digital communities and ETRI is trying to be a frontier in
realizing the dream of communicating with anyone, anywhere at anytime.
Dr. Mun-Kee Choi is currently President of ETRI (Electronics and
Telecommunications Research Institute) in Korea, appointed in November
2006. Before that for eight years at KAIST-ICC (formerly ICU,
Information and Communications University),
Dr. Choi has served as Dean of
the Office of Academic and Student Affairs, Acting President, and
Professor at the School of IT Business. Previously, he joined ETRI in
1978 as a Principal Researcher and also had served as a Vice President
at the Telecommunication System Research Division of ETRI. Dr. Choi's
technological and business background based upon his 20 year large-scale
national R&D project experiences: Long-Mid-term
Telecommunication Networking Plan, Telecommunication Standardization,
and Development on Telecommunication System. His work produced a
number of research papers, patents, and publications, overseas and
domestically. He received a BS in Applied Mathematics from Seoul
National University, Seoul, Korea and a MS in Industrial Engineering
from KAIST, Daejeon, Korea. He received his PhD in Operations
Research from North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC, USA.
