Speech TItle: What is Missing in Evolutionary Optimization?
Abstract: In this talk, I'll provide some thoughts about my view of a field in which I have worked during almost 30 years. Besides mentioning some relevant research topics related to both single- and multi-objective optimization that are worth exploring in the next few years (e.g., dynamic problems, high dimensionality, expensive objective functions, etc.), I'll provide a more general view of the field, sharing my views about the sort of research work which I believe that is needed today so that we can start switching from producing to understanding.

Speech TItle: Multi-Dimensional Dynamic Trust Management Mechanism in Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networks
Abstract: The underwater acoustic sensor network (UASN) is the core module to realize the "smart ocean". At present, the UASN has not yet fully played its role in the complex water environment. The fundamental reason lies in the lack of effective methods to ensure network security and reliable data transmission. This report mainly introduces the team's research work on the trust management mechanism of UASNs. The main research contents include: 1) Intrusion detection algorithm based on energy consumption prediction model; 2) Multi-dimensional trust calculation algorithm based on fuzzy theory; 3) Trust evaluation algorithm based on cloud theory; 4) Trust cloud migration mechanism based on AUV; 5) Trust update mechanism based on reinforcement learning; 6) Anomaly-resilient trust model based on isolation forest. The research results have important theoretical value and practical significance for exploring the security technology and application of UASNs.

Speech TItle: Decentralized Storage Networks
Abstract: Decentralized Storage Networks (DSNs) can gather storage resources from mutually untrusted providers and form worldwide decentralized file systems. Compared to traditional storage networks, DSNs are built on top of blockchains, which can incentivize service providers to contribute their unused storage spaces and ensure strong security. However, pioneering DSNs still face challenges in many aspects such as data privacy, proof of storage complexity, multi-version file management, and file indexing. In this talk, we will report two of our recent works, namely FileDAG and FileDES, which intend to overcome the above problems in designing DSNs. Specifically, FileDAG is built on a DAG-based blockchain to support file-level deduplication in storing multi-versioned files while relying on a two-layer DAG-based blockchain ledger to provide flexible and storage-saving file indexing; FileDES (Decentralized Encrypted Storage) extends FileDAG from multiple aspects, incorporating data security, system scalability, and proof succinctness respectively with file encryption, a lightweight proof of encrypted storage algorithm (PoES), and a succinct multi-version verification method. Open research challenges and future research directions will also be discussed.

Speech TItle: Machine Learning in and for Optical Data-Center Networks
Abstract: In the first part of this talk, we will first discuss the challenges on scalability, energy and manageability of data-center network (DCN) systems, and then explain why all-optical inter-connection can be a promising solution for future DCN systems. Next, we describe a novel all-optical inter-connection architecture based on arrayed waveguide grating router (AWGR) and wavelength-selective switches (WSS'), namely, Hyper-FleX-LION, explain its operation principle, and show experimental results of running distributed machine learning (DML) in a DCN in Hyper-FleX-LION. In the second part of this talk, we will explain how machine learning can be leveraged to realized knowledge-defined networking (KDN) and facilitate network automation in DCNs. Experimental results demonstrate that KDN can automatically reduce task completion time.
