Entente 2022

Second International Conference in humanities and social sciences, management and educational technology, 03–05 November 2022 in hybrid mode

About conference

Today, digitisation and advancement in information technology has significantly proliferated ‘glocal’ information mobilisation. Due to massive mobility across humanity, the era of multi-dimensionality has come into existence. The word globalisation is not limited to the economy or financial systems alone. The intervention of globalisation in day-to-day life and its quantitative and qualitative impact on trade and even normal human existence has strong links with UNO’s Sustainable Development Goals. This shift urges researchers, academicians, industry personnel and students to exchange thoughts and ideas in such an inter-disciplinary environment.

At NIIT University (NU), organising Entente is one of our ventures to facilitate deliberation on the changing paradigms in the field of language, literature, social sciences, and management. The wide spectrum of sub-themes will facilitate integrating the complex array of ethical, psychological, social, economic, cultural, linguistic, literary, political and administrative concerns in research and pedagogy. This conference attempts to provide an international platform for the academicians, researchers, industry personnel and students to share their research studies and innovative ideas in their respective domains. It further aims to bridge the gap and promote intellectual exchange between researchers, students and industrial workforce. Read more
NU runs on four core principles- industry-linked, technology-based, research-driven and seamlessness. Research-driven and seamlessness lead to inter-disciplinary teaching-learning methods or research, which spans across all the areas and domains, which further leads to considerable societal applications. From research-based to teaching to project-based learning, every domain in our curriculum follows a new pedagogic approach. Such a multi-dimensional environment leads to occupational, spatial and temporal mobility, thereby leading to a seamless life.

In 2020 and 2021, the world came to a standstill due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As the world returns to its old routine again, we at NU have decided to conduct. Éntenté-2022 in an in-person mode.

Prof Atma Sahu, Chair of Math and Computer Science, Coppin State University, USA

Plenary Session I - Address by Prof Atma Sahu, Chair of Math and Computer Science, Coppin State University, USA.

Topic of session: Cybersecurity Engineering B.S Degree Curricula Programme Design Framework
Dr. Atma Sahu is serving as a Professor and Chair Math, and Computer Sc. Dept., Coppin State Univ., USA. Over the period of 32 years, he has published numerous papers solving vibrations of turbine blades design problems, and in areas of problem solving, micro-teaching, and ethics.
Abstract of address:

The world is at risk, not only from a catastrophic cyberattack but from millions of daily intrusions disrupting everything from financial transactions, airlines, pipelines, and power grid to the inner workings of our electoral system. If this cyberattack trend is not reversed, there are going to be only cyber wars after the most recent 9/11. In the USA the cybersecurity workforce has more than 950,000 workers — with around 465,000 of them yet to be filled, according to ‘Cyberseek’, a project supported by the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE), a program of the NIST. With the cybersecurity workforce’s huge need and urgency to reduce the systems and software attack weaknesses in mind, a Cybersecurity Engineering (CYSE) B.S Degree curricula program was developed.

In this presentation, a CYSE Curriculum theoretical framework of integrated principle, practice, and rigour of engineering and operational security is described. Varied course requirements aspects of the CYSE course design framework will help address the threat-informed security learning outcomes, and direct students to learn to build, configure, operate, and maintain systems and software for secure and resilient operations. In other words, the theoretical framework of integrated systems engineering, and operational security is applied to threat-informed security risk analysis to reduce the systems and software attack surface. A NIST-based cyber security management framework topic is also included in the CYSE Curricula. In this presentation, the presenter will also address questions such as — What does the security engineer do? What are the Cybersecurity Engineering B.S Degree curricula program requirements? What modes of teaching and learning are suitable for delivering the CYSE curriculum? What is the CYSE course learning outcome assessment framework?
Prof Maiga Chang

Plenary Session II – Address by Prof Maiga Chang, Full Professor, School of Computing and Information Systems, Athabasca University, Canada.

Topic: Natural language processing based application and services

Dr. Maiga Chang is a Full Professor in the School of Computing and Information Systems at Athabasca University, Canada. His research mainly focusses on game-based learning, training and assessment; learning behaviour analysis; learning analytics and academic analytics; intelligent agent technology; health informatics; data mining; computational intelligence; natural language processing; artificial intelligence; museum education mobile learning and ubiquitous learning; healthcare technology, etc.

Abstract of address

In this talk, Prof Chang will introduce some of the research projects his research group has done with Natural Language Processing techniques. His research group uses natural language processing techniques including n-grams and part-of-speech tags to analyse large datasets like CORD-19, DBpedia, and Google Books to build an online summary generation system and Moodle plugin Ask4Summary as well as the valid n-grams identifier service that can help developers and researchers who are working on simularity calculation for two pieces of text (eg, word and sentence natural language processing service at https://ws-nlp.vipresearch.ca) or Learning Object Relation Discovery.
