Both Lineament I and Lineament II were adopted by HKSAR Customs and Excise Department. Dr. Chow has analyzed various data leakage cases in Hong Kong, which includes the IPCC case in 2006 and the Foxy/Edison cases 2008. Findings and results were presented in local seminars and international conferences with participants from legal and IT professions. In 2009, Dr. Chow was the honoree in the category of Senior IT Security Professional of the 3rd Annual Asia-Pacific Information Security Leadership Achievements Program for his achievement in digital forensics. Dr. Chow has served as a member of the Program Committee of the international computer forensic workshop SADFE (Systematic Approaches to Digital Forensic Engineering) in 2005, 2007 and 2011. He was the conference chairman of the Sixth IFIP WG 11.9 International Conference on Digital Forensics held in January 2010 in Hong Kong. From 2010, Dr. Chow is the Chairman of the Information Security and Forensics Society (ISFS). In the past years, Dr. Chow has been invited to be a computer forensic expert to assist the Court and the HK law enforcement agencies, and to give advice to counsels on understanding and interpreting digital evidence for both criminal and civil proceedings in Hong Kong.
Dr. C. L. Wang is a Professor of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Hong Kong. Dr. Wang’s research interest are parallel architecture, software systems for Cluster computing, and virtualization techniques for Cloud computing. His recent research projects are related to the development of parallel software systems for multicore/GPU clusters and multi-kernel operating systems for future single-chip manycore processor. Dr. Wang has published more than 140 papers in peer reviewed journals and conference proceedings. He is/was on the editorial boards of 8 scholarly journals, including IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing (TCC), IEEE Transactions on Computers (TC), Multiagent and Grid Systems (MGS), International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications (JPCC). He was the programme chair for numerous conferences such as Cluster’03, CCGrid'09, InfoScale’09, and ICPADS’09, ISPA’11, FCST’11, FutureTech’12, and Cluster’12. He is the primary investigator of China's 863 project "Hong Kong Grid Point'' (2006-2011). The HK Grid point offers parallel computing services for the China National Grid (中国国家网格) and a testbed for Cloud-related software development. Dr. Wang has been invited to give keynotes and plenary talks related to Distributed Java Virtual Machine and Cloud Computing at various international conferences.

The primary role of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Hong Kong is teaching and research. We committed to high-quality education and training of computing professionals at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. At the postgraduate level, we offer two taught programmes based on coursework, the MSc(CS) and the MSc(ECom&IComp), as well as the research-based MPhil and PhD programmes. Values of our MSc(CS) programme can be summed up using our own coined slogan “A 3-D programme”. By this we mean the following:
Personal Development. By studying the MSc(CS) programme at HKU, you come into contact with subject experts and interact with students in a free and open environment, to identify your strength, weaknesses, interest, and develop your own potentials.
Professional Development. On graduation, you can undertake research or to join the work force and begin your professional development in Information Technology.
Career Development. Many of our graduates will forge a clear career path for themselves in a Hong Kong or an international company.
In this talk, we shall discuss the unique features of our MSc(CS) programme with respect to the above “3D” characteristics and our different areas of specialization: Data and Software Engineering, Computer Systems and Networking, Human-Computer Interaction, Mobile and Embedded Systems, Information Security and Forensics, Computational Technologies and Finance Computing.
The subject area experts Drs. Chan, Chow, Hui, Pun, Wang, Yiu will give an overview on research related to their expertise. In particular, Drs Chow, Hui, Pun and Yiu are faculty members in the Center for Information Security and Cryptography (CISC) of the department of computer science. In this talk, they will give an introduction of the research projects in the research center. The projects are related to three major areas: (1) theoretical cryptographic primitive designs; (2) secure protocol design in emerging networks and infrastructures such as vehicular ad hoc network and/or smart grids; (3) secure applications that make use of cryptographic techniques and hybrid solutions using hardware/software. Drs Chan and Wang’s expertise are on networks and systems. In this talk (if time allows), they will talk about their latest research on systems such as cloud systems, clusters and super-computing research.
