 Keynote Topic

"Green Pesticides for Urban Insect Pests Control"


Keynote Abstract


The urban insect pests such as mosquito, house fly, cockroach and head louse are important public health problem, which affect more than 100 million people world wide including Asian people. Moreover, the number of urban insect pests have increased world wide since the mid-1960s. Currently, chemical pesticides are commonly used as the first choice for urban insect pests control. However, chemical pesticides have lost their efficacy, the resistance of several urban insect pests to chemical pesticides are increasing and chemical pesticides also have the negative side effects to people and environment. Therefore, the alternative products such as the green pesticides from herbs or plants could be good option to control urban insect pests. Moreover, green pesticides are good and safe for people and environmental friendly. However, more than 100 herbs could be used as green pesticides such as more than 50 essential oils from herbs could be used as pesticide against several species of mosquitoes and house flies. The extracts from several edible plants and spices could be used as pediculicides against head lice.

High-Level Development of Real-Time Distributed Applications

Introduction of Prof. Sergei Gorlatch

Sergei Gorlatch has been Full Professor of Computer Science at the University of Muenster (Germany) since 2003. Earlier he was Associate Professor at the Technical University of Berlin, Assistant Professor at the University of Passau, and Humboldt Research Fellow at the Technical University of Munich, all in Germany. Prof. Gorlatch has about 200 peer-reviewed publications in renowned international books, journals and conferences. He was principal investigator in several international research and development projects in the field of parallel, distributed, Grid and Cloud algorithms, networking and computing, as well as e-Learning, funded by the European Commission and by German national bodies. Among his recent achievements in the area of communications and future Internet is the novel Real-Time Framework (www.real-time-framework.com)   developed in his group as a platform for high-level development of real-time, highly interactive applications for entertainment. In the area of networking, his group has been recently working in the pan-European project OFERTIE on an application-oriented Quality of Service approach for emerging Software-Defined Networks (SDN).


Keynote Abstract

We consider an emerging class of challenging networked multimedia applications called Real-Time Online Interactive Applications (ROIA). ROIA are networked applications connecting a potentially very high number of users who interact with the application and with each other in real time, i.e., a response to a user’s action happens virtually immediately. Typical representatives of ROIA are multiplayer online computer games, advanced simulation-based e-learning and serious gaming. All these applications are characterized by high performance and QoS requirements, such as: short response times to user inputs (about 0.1-1.5 s); frequent state updates (up to 100 Hz); large and frequently changing numbers of users in a single application instance (up to tens of thousands simultaneous users). This talk will address two challenging aspects of future Internet-based ROIA applications: a) using Mobile Cloud Computing for allowing high application performance when a ROIA application is accessed from multiple mobile devices, and b) managing dynamic QoS requirements of ROIA applications by employing the emerging technology of Software-Defined Networking (SDN).

Cancer multidrug resistance: a new method and a new hope

Introduction of Dr. Paul C.H. Li

Dr. Paul Li obtained his Ph.D degree in analytical chemistry at the University of Toronto in 1995. Then, he developed the microfluidic lab-on-a-chip at the University of Alberta during his postdoctoral work. Dr. Li became assistant professor at City University of Hong Kong in 1996. He then joined Simon Fraser University in 1999, and was promoted to full professor in 2010.

 

Dr. Li is interested in integrating microfluidics for single-cell analysis in order to study the transport kinetics of chemical compounds (from herbs) on individual cancer cells. This study is particularly useful for studying multidrug resistant cancer cells, leading to potential applications in chemotherapy.  He is also interested to combine microfluidics with the nucleic acid bioarray for detection of low volume and low concentration of fungal pathogenic DNA, KRAS cancer gene DNA, and influenza viral RNA. To enhance specificity, he uses nanoparticles and nanostructured materials in the microfluidic systems. He has published Fundamentals of Lab on a Chip for Biological Analysis and Discovery in 2010, and Microarray Technology: Methods and Applications in 2016. He is associate editor of Canadian Journal of Pure and Applied Sciences, and sits on the editorial boards of Journal of Proteomics and Genomics and Hong Kong Pharmaceutical Journal. He has been visiting professors at the University of Mainz (Germany), Queenlsand Institute for Medical Research (Australia), National Cancer Institute (USA), Griffith University (Australia), and Australian Prostate Cancer Centre. Dr. Li is the inventor of 4 granted patents and 5 pending patents, and he is the founder and vice president of ZellChip Technologies Inc. specializing in microfluidic-based instruments for life science applications.


Keynote Abstract

Multidrug resistance (MDR), which is caused by drug efflux via ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters, is one of the major obstacles in cancer drug delivery. MDR may be overcome by using inhibitors. But the use of MDR inhibitors may lead to drug toxicity, resulting in failure in clinical trials. We now employ a new method called microfluidic single cell biochip (SCB) technology to measure drug uptake in patients’ cancer cells in vitro. We measure the drug uptake in the single cancer cells, and its enhancement by using MDR inhibitors. The new use of this SCB method is to use the result of drug uptake enhanced by MDR inhibitors to indicate a good prognosis for leukemia patient treatment. Although MDR is an old concept, we apply a new method called SCB to open up the new hope of using MDR inhibitors for patient treatment.
