Invited Speakers

Profile Photo Stefanie Roos
Stefanie Roos is an Assistant Professor at TU Delft, she works on decentralization with a focus on privacy-enhancing technologies and security. She has worked on censorship-resistant publication systems like Freenet, anonymous communication networks like Tor, and improved the scalability of blockchains.

Talk: Resilient Publication in the Face of State Censorship
Internet censorship is wide-spread and plays a key role during protests, e.g., as the ones currently ongoing in Iran. In this talk , I will first give an overview of different scenarios for censorship and methods for circumvention. I will then discuss peer-to-peer-based approaches for publishing information in a censorship-resistant manner in more detail. In contrast to most state-of-the-art censorship-resistance systems, such approaches remain applicable if a country completely disconnects their national internet from the global internet.

Profile Photo Judith Good
Judith Good is Professor of Human Computer Interaction in the Informatics Institute at the University of Amsterdam, and director of the newly founded Digital Interactions Lab. She has degrees in psychology and artificial intelligence, and has worked at universities in both Europe and the United States. Her overarching research aim is to develop impactful technologies, designed with end users from the outset, which can have a transformative and empowering effect on the people who use them. Within this broad area, she has focussed on better understanding how people learn, and on how innovative technologies can best support their learning. She is particularly interested in working with people with disabilities, particularly autism, to design technologies which improve their lived experiences. Judith was also actively involved in a number of initiatives to support women and girls in STEM subjects whilst in the UK, and is continuing this work in the Netherlands.

Talk: Towards a more inclusive digital society
Much of the research in human computer interaction takes the form of finding a solution to a ‘problem’, typically by designing a new technology that can solve this problem, or at least go some way towards addressing it. The implicit assumption is that the worse the problem, the more any solution, and hence the research contribution, will be noteworthy and important. This creates tensions when designing for disability, with target users and/or their characteristics, often being framed as somehow problematic. This, in turn, leads to “solutions” which are not fit for purpose. In this talk, I will consider how we might take a different approach to technology design for disability, with the aim of leading to positive changes in what/how/why we design.

Profile Photo Elvan Kula
Elvan Kula is the Chapter Lead of Analytics & AI Research at ING. She is managing ‘AI for Fintech Research’, an ICAI lab, and research collaboration between ING and TU Delft. Next to her role as lab manager, she is a doctoral candidate at TU Delft, focusing on software effort estimation. Elvan is using automated techniques to both understand and improve software development processes in terms of efficiency and predictability.

Talk: Enhancing the Understanding and Prediction of Software Delays at ING Using Machine Learning
In today’s rapidly changing world, the ability to be agile as well as predictable is essential to modern software development companies. To become more predictable in software deliveries, it is essential to better understand which factors affect the on-time delivery of software. We performed several large-scale case studies at ING to investigate which social and technical factors affect the on-time delivery of software, how they interact with each other and how their effects change over time. We have successfully integrated these influential factors using incremental learning for delay prediction at ING. Our results indicate that the planning of software can be significantly improved by incorporating team/process-related information and dynamic methods into analysis/predictive models.

Profile Photo Peter Boncz
Peter Boncz holds appointments as tenured researcher at CWI and professor at VU University Amsterdam. His academic background is in database systems, with the open-source column-store MonetDB the outcome of his PhD. He has a track record in bridging the gap between academia and commercial application, for which he received an ICT Regie Award in 2006. In 2008 he co-founded Vectorwise around the analytical database system by the same name which pioneered vectorized query execution. This initiative later led to the establishment of the R&D center of Databricks in The Netherlands. His later work in graph data management resulted in the non-commercial organization Linked Database Benchmark Council (LDBC), which now cooperates in the creation of the new ISO standard query languages SQL/PGQ and GQL. He also co-founded the SIGMOD workshops DAMON and GRADES, the Dutch Seminar on Data Systems Design and he is general chair of CIDR (that will be held January 2023 in Amsterdam). His most recent new activity is in advising the new startup around DuckDB, founded by CWI colleagues Hannes Mühleisen and Mark Raasveldt.

Talk: Experiences in Systems Research with Impact.
The task of defining a research track with original contributions and impact can appear daunting, due to the many possible choices of direction that one can make, but also the increasing maturity of the field of computing, its growth and the increased sense of competition that comes with that. The systems side of computer science, where I am active, has very many direct applications outside academia, and my personal preference has been to select topics and direction that can make an impact there. This talk will be structured around my personal experiences in the area of data systems research in the past decades. I will share some of my viewpoints on fundamental vs. applied research, trends in research practice that can diminish the impact of research, and strategies to make research more impactful, including community building, communication, open-source and spin-offs; and hope to discuss these with the audience as well.

Profile Photo Mariëlle Stoelinga
Mariëlle Stoelinga is a professor of risk management, both at the Radboud University Nijmegen, and the University of Twente, in the Netherlands.

Further Stoelinga is the scientific programme leader Risk Management Master, a part-time MSc programme for professionals. She holds an MSc and a PhD degree from Radboud University Nijmegen, and has spent several years as a post-doc at the University of California at Santa Cruz, USA.

Talk: Predictive Maintenance.
No more train delays. The grand vision of Predictive Maintenance (PdM) using data analytics to predict potential failures so well, so these can be prevented by performing maintenance exactly when and where needed — thus resulting in switches, signaling systems and signals experiencing no zero downtime.

While predictive maintenance has its roots in mechanical and civil engineering, I will in this talk elaborate on how computer science lies at the heart of many challenges in predictive maintenance, especially when it comes to automation of the solutions, their specification and verification, multi-stage optimization, the complexity of IT architecture, as well as the organizational objectding of the solutions. Thus, I hope to inspire the audience to contribute to this beautiful, relevant and exciting field.
