Title of Speech: Assessing the Impact of the Combined Technologies of AI and Blockchain on Networking and Social Pattern
Abstract: As an emerging technology, blockchain is growing into distributed system, fin-tech, security, smart contracts, and networking. Officially, some governments are hesitating to adopt formal currency but Switzerland, Japan, and other countries are permitting the official exchange of money in limited areas. Moreover, many universities are permitting students to pay tuition fee as blockchain and the Swiss city of Zug has conducted a blockchain-powered trial municipal vote between June 25 and July 1, 2018, where it forms the biggest technology area with many global companies having established blockchain centres there. It is clear that the technology of blochchain is becoming seriously useful in security, distributed work, etc. On the other hand, almost all global companies and research centres are assessing projects that combine AI with existing microelectronics technologies, leading to a growth surge in research examining the 2nd Internet in terms fast combined development in AI and blochchain. This presentation will explore how AI, blochchain, and its combined technology can be useful in innovative applications and how the results will influence social factors, platform architectures, distributed system (decentralized). The presentation is hoped to provide motivation for young researchers and students to explore novel research directions or advance their extending knowledge.

Title of Speech: Power Electronic Contributions in Renewable Energy Eonversion toward Reducing Global Warming
Abstract: Global energy consumption is increasing at a dramatic rate and most of the energy comes from fossil fuels which cause the problem of global warming due to the emission of greenhouse gases. Climate change and the global warming challenges turn up to be like a major threat to the world. Accordingly, the world is going through a crucial energy problem to supply efficient and cost-effective energy to face the rapid rise of energy need and increasing negative environmental impacts. Therefore, new guidelines and technological innovation are necessary to ensure energy security without causing emissions. Power electronics technology offers high reliability, efficiency and has been successfully implemented in different applications to convert renewable energy, conserve energy, improve performance efficiency and mitigate global emissions. This keynote focuses on various aspects of power electronics technologies in converting energy from convention form to a sustainable form which in turn solves the existing global warming problem. The different topologies of power electronics converters are explained on the basis of types, control difficulties, benefits, and drawbacks. Different categories of power electronics controllers utilized for energy conversion are comprehensively reviewed on their structure, algorithm, and mathematical model, strength, and weakness. Furthermore, the review emphasizes the execution of power converters and controllers in different applications and highlights their contribution to save energy and mitigate emissions. All the highlighted insights of this keynote will hopefully lead to increasing efforts towards the development of the advanced power electronics converters and controllers for efficient energy conversion which in turn can reducing of global warming.
