Rashina Hoda Reports:
For Computer Society:
Apologies for being absent from this meeting. Kevin Wang will be representing on my behalf.
The CS Chapter organized its first event of the year by sponsoring the venue for the Agile Professionals Network - Auckland event. The event was attended by around 40 software practitioners from down-town and ran smoothly.
Note: As the opportunity for including an IEEE NZN CS sponsorship came rather late, there wasn't enough time to advertise this in the regular fashion on various mailing lists. We do hope to sponsor some more of these in the coming months with advanced invitations being sent out to the larger community.

Robert Amor Reports:
I'll be an apology for this meeting, unfortunately, it conflicts with the IITP Auckland branch committee meeting this month.
However, this would seem like a good opportunity to get Rashina (r.hoda@auckland.ac.nz) involved in the committee as she has agreed to stand for chair of CS in 2013, and I'd like to have her as the co-chair for the remainder of 2012. I've passed her the agenda and other documents so she'll know what to expect for Thursday.

Further note:
No technical meetings have been held since the previous chapter meeting.
Dr Rashina Hoda from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Auckland has agreed to take on the role of co-chair of the CS for the remainder of 2012. Rashina is looking to put her name forward as chair for the role in 2013. The section welcomes her support of the computer society in NZ North.

Robert Amor Reports: No activities in the CS chapter over the last period, so a very short report:
No activities were held over the last period, though planning for the 2012 lectures is under way.It is planned to survey all NZN CS chapter members by the close of 2011 to gain a better understanding of what they appreciate from chapter activities and whether we can structure other events which would be of interest to a greater number of our members.

Robert Amor Reports: The report for the CS chapter follows:
One technical meeting was held over the last period (on 17 August at the University of Auckland). This was through a lucky decision of Prof. Prasant Mohapatra to visit New Zealand from UC Davis, USA. The lunchtime meeting attracted a very good audience of approximately 35 from the departments of Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering. The topic of ¿Securing Wireless Networks by Exploiting Wireless Characteristics¿ gave a great overview of research and challenges in this growing area.

Efforts to attract a DL for 2011 appear unlikely to succeed with the lead time, and negotiation required with many other regional chapters, hindering the ability to quickly progress a visit. A 2012 DL visit is to be planned for the chapter alongside standard technical meetings.

For the CS chapter I'd like to request:
1 x DL
3 x Technical meeting

Robert Amor Reports: Two technical meetings were held by the chapter over the last period, both attracting a good sized audience (over 100 people) to the early evening presentations. A L31 form has been completed for both meetings. Details of the two meetings are as below:
27 April, Prof Ian Foster, Recipient of the 2011 IEEE Computer Society Tsutomu Kanai Award, Computing outside the box
11 May, Prof James Goodman, IEEE Fellow, Co-operating computers: problems and prospects.
A third meeting by Prof Mihaela Ulieru from the University of New Brunswick on "Emergent Engineering: Breakthrough in Managing Large Scale eNetworked Techno-Social Systems" was cancelled due to speaker unavailability.

Robert Amor Reports: The first technical talk of the year has been organised in combination with the Gibbons Lecture series. This will be for Prof Jim Goodman (Fellow of IEEE) who will be speaking on 11th May on the topic of "Co-operating computers – problems and prospects".
It seems there are very few DL available in the Asia Region in the Computer Society (2 to be exact). Provides us with very little choice about a presenter and difficulties in finding someone who matches interests in the NZ North section. I would be interested in advice from the committee about options for a DL from other regions (e.g., North America)?

Valeiry Reports: One seminar by Fuad Tabba was suggested by Computer Science department to advertise as Computer Society seminar. Fuad is graduating Ph.D. student, not a distinguished lecturer. We need to discuss our policy on such seminars. Based on his supervisor, Jim Goodman, recommendation that Fuad is a great speaker we finally advertised it.

  • The IEEE Computer Society supported lecture of Prof Christian Müller-Schloer from Leibniz Universität Hannover was held on Tuesday 22 September at 4pm at AUT's city campus. Prof Müller-Schloer's presentation was entitled 'Organic Computing - Emergence Under Control?' and drew an audience of around 50 people. The organiser enquired as to how many in the audience were IEEE members and disappointingly, as with the previously sponsored Peter Gibbons Memorial Lecture, only a handful of hands went up.

  • No IEEE Computer Society activity to report since the highly successful Peter Gibbons Memorial lecture. The Computer branch has been notified by CS Region 10 that the funds for the Distinguished Visitor Programme have been exhausted due to their budget cuts. We will have to wait until 2010 to bid for a DL as we had planned for 2009. They have instituted a 'DVP Lite' programme (http://www.r1.ieee.org/roch/cab/MVP-chapter-announce.html), which is merely an email notification of when a DV is passing through a particular country. To date I have not received any of these notifications. The CS branch will look to redistribute the funds set aside for its DL this year and an initial opportunity may be to help sponsor the Auckland leg of a visit by Prof Schloer who would present around NZ on Organic Computing.

  • IEEE Computer Society supported lecture in association with the Peter Gibbons Memorial lectures will be held on 27 May at 6pm (drinks and nibbles from 5:30pm). This will be on "Developing Darwin's Computer" by Assoc Prof Alexei Drummond (Bioinformatics, University of Auckland). This has been advertised to CS members and a good number of RSVPs have been received. Previous lectures in this series have drawn 100-120 participants, so we're looking forward to a well attended and enlightening presentation.

  • Looking to support one of the Peter Gibbons Memorial lectures as an IEEE presentation. As suggested by Morteza Biglari-Abhari we have approached the organising committee of this lecture series with the idea of linking one of the lectures to the IEEE presentations. The Gibbons organising committee have reacted favourably to this suggestion and we are now looking at which of the lectures would be most suited within the IEEE presentation programme. The lectures in the series are:
    May 13: The Combinatorics at the Heart of the Problem - Prof Charles Colbourn (Arizona State University)
    May 20: Making Software Testing Easier - Dr Myra B. Cohen (University of Nebraska)
    May 27: Developing Darwin's Computer - Assoc Prof Alexei Drummond (Bioinformatics, University of Auckland)
    June 3: Technologies for Deep Learning - Dr John Hamer, Andrew Luxton-Reilly, Dr Beryl Plimmer (Computer Science, University of Auckland)

  • We had a joint seminar with Robotics chapter (presented by Dr. Sang-Rok Oh from KIST, Korea) on 14th of August.
  • We had two activities so far this year. There may be another one if possible (after consulting with you and Peter regarding the fund available for CS chapter).
