This is particularly true in the area of information management and knowledge services. There has been an explosive growth of digital content and handheld devices and vast networks of sensors have become ubiquitous. As a result of these developments, massive amounts of data and information are becoming available for numerical and symbolic processing and analysis. This information is a virtual goldmine for society, government and industry, but the task of extracting, analyzing and storing relevant information and making it available to the right user (or application) at the right time poses formidable technological challenges, many of which remain unsolved. The COMPUTE 2011 has brings together researchers, practitioners and technology market movers in order to advance the state of the art and practice in computer science research as it applies to these technological challenges and to help bridge the digital divide.


This conference aims to bring together researchers in an effort to highlight the state-of-the-art and discuss the issues and opportunities to explore new research directions and develop new ideas. We strongly welcome from both researchers and practitioners for submission in the broad area of contemporary information management. The main topics to be addressed include (but not limited to)

– Search the Internet and the Enterprise Intranet

Tech Talk Series May Edition
Title: Security aspects of Wireless Cellular Systems
ACM Tech Talk

The use of mobile phones based on cellular technology is prevalent the world over. As users, we take for granted that our
conversations and data are secure. As these systems become more widespread, they become more of a target for those
who want access to other people’s information.

This talk is an insight into security aspects of wireless cellular systems, primarily GSM/GPRS and UMTS. The talk will
cover security across different domains – subscriber, network, application and radio control. Algorithms and security
procedures used in cellular systems will be introduced.

The speaker shall also address the security concerns of the startup companies who are venturing into the space of wireless
and mobility.

About the Speaker
An alumni of the National University of Singapore, Arvind Padmanabhan has 13 years of experience in the field of wireless
telecommunication since 1996. Presently, he is working as the Technical Director of Sloka Telecom Corp, a startup venture
developing WiMAX basestations and NMS solutions.  In his previous assignments, Arvind was working for ST Microelectronics
Inc, Singapore and later at Altran Technologies Inc, UK. Arvind Padmanabhan was involved in the UMTS and GPRS protocol
stack development with ST Microelectronics. At Anritsu, UK, he was involved with HSDPA, HSUPA, GSM and MBMS

Arvind maintains his own blog on wireless technologies at  http://mobilewireless.wordpress.com/
Having moved to India a year ago, he is presently based out of Bangalore.
Date: 9th May 2009 – 10.30am-12.00noon
Venue: Honeywell, Bannerghatta Road, Bangalore.
