UAB international conference focuses on preventing high-capacity computer data theft
Date:10/14/2009

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. Leading high-performance computing engineers and researchers attending a three-day international conference at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) have called for renewed vigilance in field-related data security. The group says growing world-wide computer use puts more and more applied modeling, design and other super-computer-processed projects that are stored digitally at risk for theft by hackers and other cyber criminals.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering in the UAB School of Engineering hosted the International Conference on Applied Modeling and Information Security Systems (ICAMISS) Oct. 8-10, with 50 applied modeling experts from a range of disciplines attending.

Applied modeling is the practice of using high-capacity computers to render three-dimensional images and immersive virtual reality programs in order to view engineering designs and verify their functionality prior to full-scale production. It is useful to numerous disciplines. Testing the viability and integrity of new bridge, fighter plane or building designs are some of the uses for applied modeling; in health care, it is used for review of the feasibility of newly designed joint replacement devices.

"Modeling and computing helps to solve the world's complex problems, but the information we process on the high-speed devices of our field can easily be abused if lost to those with ill intent," said Bharat Soni, Ph.D., a conference co-chair and the chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. "That is why our conference has focused on securing the data we generate as researchers."

Information systems security experts from the field of applied modeling lectured on the strategies for securing high-performance computing data but were most concerned with creating awareness about the potential for data theft.

"Now when we work to generate new information and data, we will know to protect it," said Suhrit K. Dey, P
