Keynote Speakers

Keynote Speaker I

Prof. Chan Jin Park
Incheon National University, South Korea

Prof. Chan Jin Park graduated from Korea University, and got Master and PhD degrees in same university. His major fields of research are the air pollution control, greenhouse gas technology and odor management technology. His another interests is green growth policy. He is now full-professor in Incheon National University at Urban and Environmental Engineering School. He is member of INU ensemble taking part in piano (Chamber orchestra of his University).

 

Speech Title: "Development of Air Quality Management in Urban Cities"

 

As the economic growth increases various air pollutants are generated to atmosphere gradually until the air pollution become severe especially in urban areas. Transportation and industrial facilities and power plants are main reasons of urban air pollution in major cities of asian regions. Trans-boundary air pollutants such as fine particulates and odors have been especially common challenge to comfortable and healthful life of human being. In these situations clean air policy using clean fuel and new and renewable energy are clearly the main solution to make sustainable air quality. In this research current states of air quality in major cities were analyzed and the various emission sources and policies of air quality managements were estimated. Effective methods of air quality control in urban were suggested to make more clean cities in urban areas.

Prof. Harold Yih-Chi Tan's researches related to earthquake to analyze the groundwater level changed with analytical solution and observed data to be verified to published at Water Resources Research. Furthermore, the national policy of watershed management and Flood mitigation after the 921 Chi-Chi Earthquake in Taiwan is published on Natural Hazards. His research has focused on climate change, land subsidence and disasters reduction.

 

Speech Title: "University Capacity Building to Help Local Government Setup Resilient Community in Taiwan"

 

Global warming impacts of climate and environment changes and it increased frequency of extremely weather. It causes not only high frequency of disaster, but raising the high intensity of hazards. For examples, Taiwan 921 earthquake in 1999, South Asia tsunami in 2004, Hurricane Katrina in 2005, United State of Indiana hail stone in 2006, China Sichuan earthquake in 2008, Typhoon Morakot at Taiwan in 2009, Haiti earthquake in 2010, Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in 2011, Eastern Australia in 2012, Typhoon Haiyan at Philippines in 2013, and Bosnia, Serbia and Croatia encountered the most serious floods in past 120 years in 2014. South Asia floods in 2015. Jiuzhaigou earthquake and typhoon Hato damages threated Macau and Hong Kong in 2017. Hurricane Harvey is a catastrophe in American in 2017. The local government is concerning more for damages brought by disasters in Taiwan. The capacity and manpower of local government is not enough to implement full disaster prevention in communities level without the help from outside resources. Universities of Taiwan contribute professional technology, manpower and knowledge to support local government to raise disaster management capacity in three stages, including risks identification, adaptation and mitigation, and emergency response.

Keynote Speaker III

Prof. Manoj R. Tarambale
Marathwada Mitra Mandal’s College of Engineering, Pune, India

Prof. Manoj R. Tarambale has received Bachelor's Degree (B.E.) in Electrical Engineering from BVCOE, Pune-43, University of Pune, India, in 1992 and Master of Engineering Degree (M.E.) in Control System ( specialization in Instrumentation ) from WCOE, Sangli, Shivaji University, Kolhapur, India in 2002. Currently, he is pursuing his Ph.D. degree from PACIFIC University, Udaipur, India in the field of Biomedical Engineering.He has one year industrial experience and twenty one years teaching experience.  At present, he is working as a Head of Electrical Engineering Department of Marathwada Mitra Mandal’s College of Engineering, University of Pune, Pune-52, India.

He has published fifteen papers in prestigious International Journals and in International Conferences. He has got “Most Excellent Paper Award” and “Inter Science Scholastic Young Investigator Award” for his technical papers published.His main research interests are in the field of Bio-Medical Image Processing, Bio-Medical Instrumentation, Bio-sensors, Green Environment, Computer Applications in Bio-Medical Analysis, Artificial Intelligence in Disease Detection and Electrical Engineering. He is giving an important contribution in implementing various early detection cancer technique projects through Bio-Medical Image Processing. He has also done two consultation projects for the reputed industries. Prof. Tarambale is a member of Institute of Engineers (India) and Indian Society for Technical Education (ISTE).

 

Speech Title: "Detection of Medical Disease (Lung Cancer) Using Image Processing Tool–An Engineering Approach"

 

Today, cancer is one of the most formidable health problem faced by mankind. This cancer confirmation process is complex, time consuming and costly. It might be possible during the above process the stage of the cancer may change. Though MRI, CT scan, PET etc. radiological images helps us to detect lung nodule easily, but because of huge cost involve still avoided in poor and developing country. Inexpensive method involve detection of cancer from simple chest X-ray.  Abnormal masses seen in the chest X-ray in the form of white spot / tumors are analyze through engineering image processing methods, so that in early stage cancer conformation took place, which reduce the mortality rate. In an engineering approach to detect lung cancer various steps involved are data acquisition, image processing, segmentation, feature extraction and use of artificial intelligence. First digitized images are obtain by scanning X-ray image by high resolution scanners and adjusted to standard size by applying size normalization algorithm. The image processing refer to the tasks necessary for enhancing the quality of acquired digitizes X-ray scanned images. . The quality of the original image obtained can be improved further by applying histogram equalization algorithm and segmentation of suspicious region is done by using various edge detection algorithms, labeling algorithm etc. Various features are extracted on the basis of mathematics using simple software programming which help to classify suspicious tumor as malignant or benign using machine learning process or also called it as using Artificial Intelligence. The proposed system will not replace the doctor’s role in detection of cancer but it will help doctor to take correct decision in short time with accuracy (It will act as second opinion before conformation of cancer).
