Singapore

Associate Professor Dr. Sye Loong Keoh

Dr. Sye-Loong Keoh is an Associate Professor in the School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow (UofG, Singapore campus) and the Director of Research Programmes in UofG Singapore. He holds a Ph.D. in computing science from Imperial College London and worked on secure mobile ad-hoc networking to facilitate secure interaction and communication among entities from different administrative domains in infrastructure-less scenarios.

Prior to joining UofG, he was a Senior Scientist at Philips Research Eindhoven, The Netherlands. His areas of expertise include cyber security for Internet of Things (IoT), lightweight security systems for cyber-physical systems, and innovative IoT solutions to enhance urban mobility. He pilots the use of IoT technology to improve urban mobility in Johor Malaysia, in which his team has deployed a non-GPS based public bus tracking system – myBusz, to provide estimation of bus arrival time using Bluetooth and machine learning. Such a deployment can be further expanded to other cities and rural areas to improve accessibility and mobility.

In addition, he leads the cyber-security research activities in UofG Singapore where he has designed several lightweight authentication protocols and key management schemes for IoT, building management and industrial control systems. More recently, he is researching on new techniques for securing end-to-end communication and ensuring data provenance in IoT environment to protect smart cities applications.

SARAWAK | MALAYSIA

Sarawak, known as Land of the Hornbills, is an amazing place where you can experience the best of “old world charm” with “new world convenience”. Sarawak was once known hundreds of years ago for its fierce headhunting tradition (which is no longer practiced today). Today, it is rapidly gaining ground as a place where Business Meets Adventure.

Sarawak is the largest State of Malaysia’s 13 States, which covers an area of 125,000 sq. km, approximately the size of Greece. The steep interior terrain, luxuriant with tropical rainforests, gives birth to mighty rivers. The population is 2.6 million people, approximately 10 percent of Malaysia’s population. From towering mountains to underwater diving treasures, Sarawak has it all. One of the iconic UNESCO World Heritage Site worth visiting is the Mulu National Park covering 55,000 hectares. It is the biggest National Park in Sarawak with mystery and magic of Borneo that lured the cream of the scientific world since it was first discovered

Sarawak is a place rich in natural resources (timber, oil, gas among them), tens of thousands of species of flora and fauna, and a harmonious multi-cultural, multi-racial community population of 28 different ethnic groups.
