Speech Title: A Testing Technique for Reporting Hidden Faults and Optimized Test Data Generation Using Fusion of Uml Diagrams and Genetic Algorithm
The growing role and importance of software testing has led to
design and development of new software testing techniques for all
software development paradigms. Controlling and minimizing software
complexity is the most important objective of each software
development paradigm because it affects all other software quality
attributes like reusability, reliability, testability,
maintainability etc. For this purpose, a number of software testing
techniques have been designed to report different types of faults
based on complexity.
In recent years, component-based software development (CBSD) has emerged an evolving paradigm where emphasis is to maximize reuse of code of existing components and effective designing of new components. As the development of component-based software is rising, more and more testing techniques are being developed for the same.
The keynote speech focuses on a testing technique which reports hidden faults and generates optimized test data for a software by using UML diagrams and genetic algorithm. Test data is generated by fusion of three UML diagrams namely, activity diagram, sequence diagram and use-case diagram. Genetic algorithm is used to optimize the test cases/data. In this way, this technique generates optimized and better test data/cases based on wider coverage of software. By using this, we can improve the quality of a software and can use testing resources more effectively. Therefore, this technique helps in development of good quality software and may be useful for software industry.

Speech Title: Virtual Reality in Hospital for Rehabilitation
Abstract: This talk is about the development of virtual reality (VR) technology in hospital for post-stroke rehabilitation. Based on the statistical study, the common rehabilitation training modules are the pick and place, and balance impairment rehabilitation. These modules are developed to serve motor dysfunction and balance impairment. By using a VR headset, it enables an individual to immerse in the virtual environment. With the integration of VR, Leap motion sensor, and Kinect sensor, the individual is allowed to interact in the virtual world to carry out rehabilitation exercises in the virtual hospital environment. In this way, patients can carry out rehabilitation exercises at their convenience in the virtual world environment they desired.

Speech Title: Analysis and Design of Nonlinear Systems in the Frequency Domain: A Parametric Characteristic Approach
Abstract: The analysis and design of nonlinear systems in the frequency domain are challenging topics in the literature. Usually, the harmonic balance method or absolute stability theory etc can be employed. However, limitations might often be encountered due to computational complexity or implicit relationship between system output response and model parameters. Based on the Volterra series theory, a systematic frequency domain analysis and design method referred to as output frequency response function (OFRF) or nonlinear characteristic output spectrum (nCOS) function is developed with a unique parametric characteristic approach in recent years, which demonstrates advantages over its counterparts, bringing obviously unique features, benefits or insights into the understanding of nonlinear influence in the frequency domain. Applications in vibration control, signal processing, fault detection and others are extensively studied in the literature as well. This talk presents a brief introduction to this topic.
