K1: Building Robust Wireless Networks with Relay Node Placement

Guoliang Xue
School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering
Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona, USA

Chair: Soufiene Djahel, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK

In the event of a natural disaster, maintaining a working communication network that can disseminate critical information is very important to rescue survivors of the disaster. However, the communication network may also be damaged by the natural disaster, due to loss of power or damage to base stations. We study both proactive and reactive approaches to maintaining a working communication network in the event of a natural disaster. In the proactive approach, we harden the network to increase its robustness against failures. In the reactive approach, we reconnect the working pieces of the network with limited relay nodes. Since our goal here is to connect as many survivors as possible, the problems are different from traditional robust networking problems studied in the literature. In this talk, we discuss the challenges and present our solutions to these problems.

K2: Application of numerical model on extreme weather and regional climate changes studies

Dr. Chuan-Yao Lin
Research Fellow
Research Center for Environmental Changes, Academia Sinica, Taiwan

Chair: Hideaki Sone, Tohoku University, Japan

Climate change is the most serious scientific and social challenge in the present century. Reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and various studies have suggested that extreme weather events are most likely to increase around the world. However, regional changes are neither uniform nor certain, and have become pressing issues for the next IPCC effort and beyond. In particular, East Asia is one of the fastest developing economies in the world. Therefore, the impacts of climate change, particularly global warming in this region are drawing much attention owing to the recent trend of increase in extreme weather events. Numerical models are useful tools to understand the mechanisms of the extreme weather and projection the possible changes. In this presentation, I will demonstrate some examples including extreme rainfall events, heat waves and regional climate change projections over Taiwan.

K3: A Real-Time Tsunami Inundation Forecasting System for Disaster Mitigation and Prevention ~Lessons learned from the 2011 East-Japan Great Earthquake ~

Hiroaki Kobayashi
Professor and Director of of Architecture Laboratory
Department of Computer and Mathematical Sciences, Graduate School of Information Sciences, Tohoku University, Japan

Chair: Celimuge Wu, University of Electro-Communications, Japan

The tsunami disasters that occurred in Indonesia, Chile, and Japan have inflicted serious casualties and damaged social infrastructures. Tsunami forecasting systems are thus urgently required worldwide. We have developed a real-time tsunami inundation forecast system that can complete a tsunami inundation and damage estimation for coastal cities at the level of 10-meter grid size in less than ten minutes. In my talk, we will be presenting an overview of our system. We will be also introducing HPC activities of Cyberscience center of Tohoku University, a part of the national high-performance computing infrastructure deployed in Japan.
